Update: “Boy Pussy” Rapper Fly Young Red Was Not Signed To Lil Wayne’s Record Label

Update: Fly Young Red confirmed on Twitter last night that some things are just too good to be true.

He has not signed to Cash Money/Young Money Entertainment.

Queerty originally reported:

4/8: Fly Young Red, the delightful openly gay Houston rapper that became an overnight sensation with the release of “Throw That Boy Pussy“, has reportedly been signed to Cash Money/Young Money Entertainment, the record label jointly owned by rap deity Lil Wayne.

Lil Wayne has been known to snatch some of hip-hop’s greatest artists before they spiral into fame, and is more or less credited for having discovered Drake, Nicki Minaj, and most recently, Justin Beiber’s successor Austin Mahone.

(To squash the Lil Wayne haters before y’all have a chance to start, let it be known that his debut album has been certified platinum and he’s surpassed Elvis Presley as the male artist with the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100. Bye!)

Fly Young Red nailed something of a “first” with his debut single “Throw That Boy Pussy”, presenting a style of misogynistic and exploitative rap that has historically been exclusive to heterosexual men. In his single’s video, Fly Young Red objectifies gay men and explicitly talks about them “sitting on [his] dick.” In doing so, he gave everyone at Queerty a boner.

According to industry sources, Lil Wayne had this to say about Fly Young Red’s signing:

Good music is good music. Gay, straight, black, white, blue, or purple. Good music is just good music. Have you ever been in the club when that joint came on? Niggas go crazy when that drop. I had to make him YMCMB.

Additionally, Cash Money co-founder Birdman reportedly said:

I support everything my young’n do. Young’n brought Red into the boardroom, we met behind closed doors, we spoke like men, we handled business like bosses. We ended up making him a offer he couldn’t refuse. It’s YMCMB forever, ya dig? We support Red movement and what he tryna accomplish. We definitely support the movement.

Fly Young Red himself has yet to comment on the news,  but he did confirm that a new line of Boy Pussy underwear, boy shorts and jockstraps are on the way:

Well I certainly know what I’m throwing this boy pussy into this summer.

      YASSSS!!! First of all Queerty, thank you for putting out how successful Lil Wayne is because when “Boy Pussy” came out there was a certain sect that didn’t think it was a good representation of gay culture, as if gay culture isn’t diverse and can’t be anything other than WASPY. I say congratulations to this guy for being signed and wish him success going forward.

      Lil Wayne may have the most #1’s, but that includes songs he collaborated with. Elvis didn’t need Nikki Minaj horrible songs to go to #1. not hatting – FACT

      Some other sites are saying this is just a rumor and are denying that he’s signed with Lil Wayne.

      @kcdopro: Nope, but Elvis never wrote a song himself, and at the beginning of his career he was mostly a cover artist of other, mostly black artists who didn’t get the automatic promotion and credit he got from covering other people. I acknowledge and respect Presley’s talent as a performer and I am by no means a fan of Wayne’s work, or even familiar with it, but please, don’t oversimplify things, Elvis is the most epic example of white privilege in music history. And neither one of them has the most #1’s on Billboard Hot 100 history, the record they mention in the article refers to most ENTRIES, not #1’s; that record belongs to neither one of them: among male artists it belongs to Michael Jackson with 13 #1’s, among female artists(and solo artists overall) Mariah Carey has the record with 18 #1’s and the overall record has been held by the Beatles for over 40 years now with 20 #1’s.

      I’ll take “Something for the Fellas” by Gay Pimp Jonny McGovern over this shite any day. What matters is not just that the rapper is gay but that he’s GOOD. Fly Young Red is not good. His rhymes are horrible and ignorant. He has no flow. There is nothing interesting or edgy about his content and the video is a nightmare. Those backup dancers couldn’t identify good costumes and choreography if they had a gun to their heads. If he was a GOOD wrapper, the over sexuality and raunch would be entertaining. But every thing about him and this song and video is ridiculous. THAT is the problem.
