The international platform for prominent Dancehall singjay, Mavado keeps growing after a major merger within hip-hop circles has made him part of another highly regarded record label.
Last Summer, Mavado signed his first international record deal with DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group and has since release reputable efforts such as Emergency with label mate, Ace Hood as well as Survivor featuring Senegalese-American hip-hop artiste, Akon and Soulja Girl. Additionally, the Do Road singer has been touring across the United States in recent months in an effort to market himself in the country following the re-issuance of his visa last July.
Earlier this week, Cash Money Records co-founder, Birdman announced that his label has now signed We The Best Music Group under their imprint, making Mavado an affiliate of the Young Money Cash Money Billionaires (YMCMB) as he’s now under the Cash Money umbrella.
According to Mavado’s long-time manager, Julian Jones-Griffiths, he and the Gully Gaad have been aware of this deal for quite some time, even before the singjay signed with We The Best Music Group and believes that the deal will be beneficial for all parties involved.
Additionally, he relayed that the move will be beneficial for all parties involved given the fact that Cash Money Records will now be involved in directly promoting and marketing Mavado’s projects with We The Best. Also, given Mavado’s close relationship with the Young Money Cash Money Billionaires, Jones-Griffiths believes that more collaborations are in store between Mavado and their artistes and even hinted that the public will soon hear them.
For his part, Mavado believes that the merger only adds to his international status while intimating that this will affect him in a positive way given the label that they’re now affiliated with.
The Cash Money Records label features a slew of premiere hip-hop talent who’ve enjoyed countless mainstream success, including Grammy-winning hip-hop megastar, Lil Wayne, Trinidadian-American hip-hop superstar, Nicki Minaj and Canadian singing/rapping sensation, Drake, with whom Mavado has performed alongside on numerous occasions.
