Early Sunday morning, the tracklist and release date was revealed for the Young Money Cash Money compilation album, Rich Gang.
There are a lot of big names on this album, including Cash Money signees such as Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, and Cash Money co-founder Birdman. Features will also include Kendrick Lamar, R Kelly, Rick Ross and many more, reports Hotnewhiphop.
Even with all of these huge names on the album, the one big name missing is Drake. Drake, a Young Money signee, will not make an appearance on the album and that seems very curious. He is preparing for his album Nothing Was the Same, set to release on September 17, which could be a reason for his absence on the tracklist. But either way, you would think he would at least be involved in some way on this album, as one of YMCMB's (Young Money Cash Money Billionaires) biggest stars.
Drake's absence is even more surprising when you consider that Limp Bizkit will even make an appearance on the album. Vibe reports that Limp Bizkit surprisingly signed to the hip hop label back in February of 2012.
The deluxe edition of the album will have 16 tracks and will drop on July 23. We will see within the next ten days if Drake's absence makes a big difference in the quality of the album.
Listen to the first single from the album, "Tapout," below.
