Veteran rhyme-spitter Busta Rhymes has secured a lucrative deal with the biggest rap label in town, Cash Money Records. The New York rapper will join fellow multi-platinum artists on the label, including Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake and the Young Money crew. The pact also includes a partnership with Google Music.

Bussa-Buss confirmed the news at a media event celebrating the launch of Google Music. “It’s an unbelievably groundbreaking deal,” he told MTV News. “[There’s] never been a deal done like this before, where the most powerful search engine in the world combines with the most powerful record company in the world.”

In a video by director Derick G, Cash Money CEO Birdman celebrated the joint deal with his latest signee. “[Busta’s] legendary, first of all,” he says. “The talent [has] always been there [and] the platform we are going to put [him] on is what’s poppin’.”

“It’s a golden moment for hip-hop,” Busta adds.

The first single from the deal is the Chris Brown-assisted banger, ‘Why Stop Now.’ The song will appear on Busta’s ninth album ‘E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event) 2: End Of The World’ and it will be released through Google’s new music platform.
