Mellow Rackz, the newest addition to Young Money, was welcomed to the label with a party, racks of money and a new chain. The emcee celebrated her accomplishment at LIV Miami over the weekend while turning up for her 20th birthday.

Dreams really do come true,” she reflected in an Instagram post on Tuesday (Sept. 14). “I really hustled this is no luck. @livmiami ON A SUNDAY.” “It’s @mackmaine4president & @zoeydollaz in the Dj booth 4 me,” she added. “That’s the love u can’t buy. Mula Gang @youngmoney.”

Next to her caption was a video featuring various highlights from her appearance at the popular Miami hot spot.

In several clips, Rackz is captured performing and laughing with friends. In another, Lil Wayne is spotted as he put her new Young Money chain around her neck. A video on Weezy’s YouTube page also shows as Mack Maine gifts the 20-year-old and her label mates with $100,000.

Rackz joins a roster that includes Nicki Minaj and Drake, but she is one of the many new faces Wayne hopes to shine a light on. Back in March, the New Orleans rapper announced that his new signees will all be featured on an upcoming Young Money compilation album.

“We about to put the compilation together with all the artists together on one album,” he told the “Up On Game” podcast. “That sets up everything for everybody so they could start coming out with their solo projects as well.”

While reviving the Young Money brand, Tunechi is reportedly preparing to release three new albums. “Anybody that’s like a Wayne fan, they know that I Am Not A Human Being III is up, coming up soon,” Maine said last month during a Twitter Spaces conversation. “Wayne and Rich the Kid have a project together that’s coming out soon,” he continued. The third album will the 2 Chainz-assisted Collegrove 2.
