no, the last label they were with owns the rights to their songs, and no artist in their right mind would ever sign over their masters unless they were out of their fu*king minds or getting a check for 100M on the spot
and they don't have authors signed to the label, they have a separate company called Cash Money Content. In addition to the two labels and CMC, they have Millionaire Tour Co. which is a leasing company that provides all the transportation when artists go on tour, Masterpiece Properties Inc. which is a real estate holding company and Baby also owns a 30% stake in Grand Touring Vodka....I think the term your looking for isn't shark, but rather, a mogul
Your right, the guy is a mogul. But you can't deny that he is screwing some of artists. I think Baby does good business. It may not be in the best interest of the artists signed to the label, but is good business in HIS best interest nonetheless.
