It’s official: Lil’ Wayne finally has signed Nicki Minaj to his Young Money/Cash Money imprint.  I guess with her on tour he feels that she can break out and be a star on her own.  Really, the female MC lane is wide open with no traffic.  Here is an excerpt from the official press release announcing the signing:

The battle among labels to sign Minaj heightened this summer and finalized with Minaj signing an exceptional and very unique deal with Young Money/Universal, where she retains and owns all of her 360 rights, including merchandising, sponsorships, endorsements, touring and publishing. Lil Wayne asserts, ‘I am honored to have Nicki Minaj as Young Money’s First Lady. She is a star.’ Minaj’s debut album is anticipated to be released in early 2010 and will be distributed through Universal Motown.

Good luck and we look forward to seeing hearing more from her.
