Lil Wayne Signs Jae Millz To Young Money

Looks like Lil Wayne just picked up an underrated free agent. According to reports, the Cash Money Records recording artist just signed Harlem rapper Jae Millz to his Young Money Entertainment imprint.

Weezy recently made the announcement during a recently concert in Newark, New Jersey, and Millz confirmed as well with Complex magazine.

"Yeah, we just drawing up the paperwork, but I've been rocking with [Lil Wayne] since the first week in 2008," Millz told the mag via a text message. "I've just been keeping stuff low, but Young Money is what it is, and I'm still Wanna Blow. The 'Holla At A Playa (Remix)' is going to be out in two weeks. We're moving, Young Moola Baby!"

Millz has had his ups and downs in the industry. After making a name for himself as a battle tested MC via underground mixtapes and DVDs, he inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records, where he gained a buzz with his first single "No, No, No."

The deal fell through and he left the label without releasing an album. Later, his Wanna Blow Entertainment label gained a distribution deal with SRC Records/Universal, but once again that deal didn't pan out either.

Now, with a new deal in place, Millz plans to return soon, as he mentioned, with a new single set to hit radio in the coming weeks.
