    As Young Money president and an artist himself, Mack Maine has always got his hands full. However, he continuously delivers on every single promise both in business and in music. He's a formidable MC in his own right and a shrewd industry leader, making him all the more crucial to the genre of rap music and its culture. Not only does he get wild on "You Already Know" and "Fresher Than Ever" from Young Money: Rise of an Empire [Out March 11, 2014], he helps guide everything surrounding it.

    Young Money is always ready to seize the crown. "Lil Wayne set this precedent and tone that we don't work on specific albums, but we record year-round," he explains. "Any one of our artists might have fifty to a hundred songs, if not more. It works in our favor. We always have music, and everybody's constantly getting better."

    Rise Of An Empire reflects his own hunger and devout fandom of 300 equally. "I've seen the movie like a thousand times," he laughs. "I'm a Leo, and I feel like I've got a bad case of Leo-nidas [Laughs]. That's how I feel. The movie reflects our spirit."

    In addition to his own Food For Thought dropping next, he's got his sights set high for all of the artists. "Hopefully people find a new respect for the hard work we put in and our musical drive," Mack Maine concludes. "If Euro and Shanell gain a new fan, or if you like one song, the job is done. We're trying to reach everybody we can."

    They definitely will with this Empire.
