  • Truth

    How does someone with no proven fan base. No hot song in rotation in other markets. No regional recognition No proven sales history. get a deal with Universal? $$$$$ This look like PayPaTime all over again.
    Honor to King Louie. LEP & Rockie doin it the right way.

    • James Kruml

      Why so much hate, you act like YP hasn’t been working hard for the past 4+ years. You say sales record? What are you talking about, all the artist you named have only put out mix tape projects,besides LEP, you can’t measure that.

      I give credit to Rockie, LEP, and King Louie. But don’t hate on an artist cause he figured out how to get there.

      • Knottz

        I see both arguements but my thing is why speak on negative shit? This is his moment. Let him shine. Who cares how he got it? He GOT it.

    • Davy

      not to mention Truth, are you in other markets? How do you know where his buzz is? or what the potential the label sees in him is. It’s a business not a fan club. Maybe he’s buzzing harder outta state.

    • BIGGITTY

    • Real

  • sam

    All the hating remarks are coming from the same person using alias names. this person is the same person that degrades or down play every artist when they start to bubble in chicago. thats bcuz he feels like if it aint his group, it shouldnt be any1 that blows from chicago. and yp mark my word, this same phony, coniving, money blowin fag is gon congradulate when he sees you and tell you good luck. ive never seen 1 person hate so much! listen “truth” i know your on the phone tellin somebody rite now this same shit you saying on fakeshore, the TRUTH is we are all waiting to see what your gonna do wit your guys. you know everything, & you got all the answers rite? what you gon do? take a bullshit deal and act like your lil hustle bread came music? TRUTH is everybody already knows who yawl are and they jus dont fuck wit yawl music. good shit YP .

  • TREATEDCREW

    YP, ,GO TO THE BANK AND TAKE A PIC DEPOSITING A CHECK WHILE SMILING FOR THE HATERS!!!!! HAHAHA like, Cheese haters!!! #TREATEDCREW!!! #TREATEDCULT!!!

  • Davy

    end of day…none of you guys hating have a damn clue what you’re talking about. This is a MAJOR RECORD LABEL!!! They aren’t going to sign you if they haven’t seen something to make it worth it! You sign an artist with the right look and sound, and then you make them have a fan base! Kinda how things work. Support your damn city!

    Y’all are dumb.

  • Cuzmo

    To all you kats showing love to my young cuz, appreciate you., To all the rest, y’all just sad. Grown men sounding like high school kids. You wish it was you,. Dude is making it happen. He struggled and paid his dues. It only takes the right person to like him and Universal does. Dude is making it happen for the CHI. Verses will keep flowing. Keep chasing the dream YP while leaving others way behind. .

  • Kenlo Key

  • Griffen Facemob
