Amidst a very public and longstanding dispute with Young Money co-founder Birdman, Lil Wayne has returned with a new business venture.

Following his Instagram announcement on Monday (March 27), Lil Wayne officially launched his very own online radio station: Young Money Radio. Hosted by DASH Radio, the new station - which serves as a place to hear music from artists on the Young Money roster - kicked off last night with an exclusive premiere of HoodyBaby's new album Kitchen 24: Slangin' Off Key, featuring three tracks with Weezy himself. 


Young Money Radio picks up where Drake and Frank Ocean's Beast 1 radio shows - OVO and Blonded Radio respectively - leave off, continuing to provide artists with a viable medium to spearhead their own music distribution. As the music industry continues to shift towards streaming, it will be interesting to see how artists will respond and which ones eventually follow suit.

Head on over to DASH Radio and get a taste of some of the Young Money greatness over the years.
