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.
