Diddy sales Vodka, Jay Z sold clothes and switched to Champagne, Russel Simmons does it all including the Rush Prepaid Credit Card and apparently Lil Wayne thinks Uncle Rush is on to something. In Young Money We Trust? Lil Wayne has hopped into the prepaid card business. But the big homey on everything finance – Forbes Magazine pretty much says that’s not what’s up.
Top reasons being the card costs $100 more per year than the top prepaid credit card GreenDot; and the Young Money card can be used at less locations because it is a Discover card versus other cards being on the Visa or Mastercard network.
I don’t blame Lil Wayne one bit. If I had some millions a Prepaid Card would be one of my first business ventures. Boy, a Ask Kissy prepaid card would look so freaking pretty. I would would make it Pink, Purple or Red.
The difference between Uncle Rush’s prepaid card and other prepaid cards like the Green Dot Card is that Lil Wayne’s card will actually render a portion of the proceeds to a charitable cause. In addition Young Money cardholders receive a medical card good for discounts on medicines as well as certain tests and procedures, but wait for it.. There has to be something ghetto tacky or not right with this card right?
With all that being said. I think these cards are going to sell like hotcakes. Especially if he puts out one with Nicki Minaj on it looking succulent the way she did in that Maybach. Furthermore, I don’t think the targeted card consumers will care anything about the fees or the prescription card. All they want is a Young Moolah Baby card. Personally, considering the high fees of these cards I think Diddy should get in on the deal too and come out with a “Take That” card.

What’s the Verdict? I know one thing, all of Lil Wayne’s kids are going to be set for generations.. Ya’ll might want to rethink scowling your face at the thought of being one of Lil Wayne’s baby mama’s..
