While most people are getting ready for some holiday relaxation and downtime with the family, the YMCMB crew stays busy. Cash Money picked up Busta Rhymes and Mystikal, Young Money expanded with Lil Wayne's signing of 14-year-old Torion, and Drake has been popping up all over the place promoting his recently released Take Care album.

As if that wasn't enough, Birdman revealed two more pieces of news to Billboard. First of all, Drake and Lil Wayne are shooting a video for the Take Care bonus track "The Motto" next week. Secondly, Nicki Minaj has been in the studio and is aiming to have her sophomore album out in the beginning of 2012. Birdman says the first single may come before the end of the year. 

You gotta respect the work ethic.
