After conquering the music game, Cash Money CEO Birdman is now ready to invade Hollywood. The tattooed-heavy executive revealed to XXL that he plans to launch Cash Money Films this year. Among the projects in development includes a headlining movie for Omar Epps (of 'House' fame) and a Young Money-starring flick called 'Rich Gang.'
Although Cash Money Records is a powerhouse label with plenty of cash to spend (just ask Birdman), they keep finding themselves in legal trouble for not paying monies to other people. Courthouse News Service reports that EMI has slapped Cash Money with a lawsuit claiming that the label owes them a whopping $491,000 in back royalty payments.
Birdman has made some unique signings in the past, but this one might take the cake. Cash Money Records has added the veteran rock-rap group Limp Bizkit to their star-studded label. Young Money CEO Lil Wayne spilled the beans when he called into New York's 98.7 Kiss FM on Thursday (Feb. 24).
The three Musketeers of hip-hop -- Birdman, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne -- show why they are on top of the rap game with their materialistic video for 'Y.U. Mad.' The track is from Birdman's upcoming solo LP 'Bigga Than Life.' The clip also introduces us to the female Weezy character played by the versatile rapstress Minaj, herself.
