Get Your Shine On

Seventeen seconds. That's all Lil Wayne needed to get the Internet abuzz again. That's all he offered, too — a promo video for a song called "D'usse." But no further details from Weezy. The song could place on his next album, his rumored last, or knowing Weezy, it could go anywhere.

Cash Money and its musical offspring, YMCMB — that's Young Money Cash Money Billionaires, for the uninitiated — has been making history since the last millennium. Cash Money was at the cutting-edge of the Dirty South's late-'90s explosion; and today, Young Mula, baby, home to Wayne, Toronto's Drake, Queens's Nicki Minaj, and more, is rap's undisputable center of gravity.

And with Nicki and Weezy both dropping new albums this year, it's sure to stay that way. That noted, BET.com mined through the label's long catalog to choose its biggest, boldest and best albums. Read on. Thank us later.
