Young Money To Release Branded Pre-Paid Debit Cards: Report
It's no secret that Lil Wayne's Young Money roster is carrying the torch while he's locked up, but they are doing more than just music ... dipping their hands in all types of businesses.
A photo of what appeared to be a Young Money credit card surfaced on YN's RapRadar.com, opening discussion on whether Weezy's Young Money label had their own branded plastic.
However, the label's president Mack Maine clarified what the cards in the photos are all about, via KarenCivil.com.
"It is true, so make sure the fans and the people that are interested sign up," Maine told the blogger. "It's a prepaid card. We're not starting it out with each member having their own card just yet. It's just pretty much a Young Money card and then we'll branch out to like Nicki Minaj pink cards, maybe having Wayne and Drake cards being like the black cards. You know, just different levels of it. Maybe have Twist and Chuckee for the younger crowd. We'll make sure each member has it as we learn the ropes."
According to Maine, Young Money's business manager came up with the idea, and they immediately began to make it happen.
But for fans who want one, he says there will be perks such as: discounts for shopping online and at the Young Money website, as well as discounts with other stores they are setting up partnerships with, one being Target stores.
At press time, it was unknown when these Young Money pre-paid cards would be available.
