Young Greatness spent 2016 winning the New Orleans rapper dropped the hit record “Moolah” produced by Jazze Pha gaining a gold plague then toured with Kevin Gates on the Islah Tour Part 2. The Quality Control signed artist then just disappeared from the game leaving many questioning his label status until Birdman telling Billboard in February “We got new artists like The Money Man, Young Greatness”
The former labelmate of Migos and Lil Yachty, Greatness explains there aren’t issues with Quality Control: “”First all, there’s no ill will between me, Coach K and P so let’s just clear that out, Sometimes when you do business, you have different opinions in the way we see things and sometimes, things aren’t meant to work. God has his own plan for you. I feel like with that situation, it wasn’t God’s plan for me. You can never question God’s judgment.”
Young Greatness credited the label for teaching him important lessons. “As a label on a whole, it’s an excellent label to be on,” he said. “They have a lot talent over there. One thing I learned being over there was that you have to earn your keep. That’s what I did. I did that and in less than a year, I made one the biggest songs the label had and sold a lot units — over 800,000 to be exact. That’s one the biggest things I learned was in competition, you have to focus on what you have to do and not what the next person is doing. That’s what molded me into who I am today.”
Greatness explained with his move to Cash Money was destined. “One, my cousins worked for Mannie Fresh when I was a kid. In my family, it was already in their head for me to eventually go there. It was their vision for me. I choose my own path with my career. Once things appeared to the public that things were kind shaky with my situation. Slim reached out before Baby and wanted to talk to me about my situation. I was actually still on Quality Control at the time. They were willing to work with them to go further considering the fact that I was from New Orleans. They just wanted to see somebody from the city win. We weren’t able to put it together then. A few months after that, that’s when both them collectively took me to the home team.
Young Greatness plans to release a new project in a few months titled Blood Summer: “You going to get a lot from me this summer. Right now we’re going through a major problem because I have so many singles. It’s kind hard to choose which one it’s going to be right now. I got a lot dope records. I’m excited about the summer. It might be this record I got called “We Rollin.” It’s real big and a nice summer record. It’s a great play off ‘Moolah.’ So be ready.”
