The Young Money crew is following in Russel Simmons’ footsteps.
No, they aren’t starting a hip-hop label that’ll completely change the game like Russ did with Def Jam.
They’re getting into the pre-paid debit card business.
Young Money president Mack Maine was recently featured in a spread in The Source magazine which featured a card with the Young Money logo printed on it.
KarenCivil.com decided to investigate further and asked Mack Maine what the deal was with the card.
Background Info – As far as the Young Money credit cards go, it is true. I don’t have a definite date yet, but I should have one soon before the end of the week. But it is true, so make sure the fans and the people that are interested sign up. It’s a pre-paid card. We’re not starting it out with each member having their own card just yet. It’s just pretty much a Young Money card and then we’ll branch out to like Nicki Minaj pink cards, maybe having Wayne and Drake cards being like the black cards. You know, just different levels of it. Maybe have Twist and Chuckee for the younger crowd. We’ll make sure each member has it as we learn the ropes.
Who Came Up With The Idea – Honestly, it was our business manager. His name is Horace Madison. It was his idea and we just pretty much capitalized on it and added some things to it. He was the original one that came up with the idea though.
What To Expect – It’s a lot of perks that’s going to come along with the card. You’ll get discounts to go online and shop at our website. So, you’ll get things like that. We’ve got different companies like Target and some others companies where you’ll be able to discounts as well when you use the card there.
