Lil Wayne's five insolent words, "I don’t like New York," have upset many New Yorkers. But one person who is standing by Weezy's comments is his Cash Money boss and surrogate father Birdman.
While an eyewitness claims that Drake started the whole nightclub melee that left Chris Brown and several innocent bystanders injured last week, the Toronto-bred rapper has one man in his corner: Cash Money CEO Birdman.
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.
If you were shock by the news that Cash Money Records signed rap-rock group Limp Bizkit, you might be surprise at what is coming next. Lil Wayne will duet with the Bizkit on their new single, which is set to drop next week.
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).
Recession? What recession? In a new video posted by photographer/director Derick G, Birdman lives up to the name Cash Money as he hands out Bentley Mulsanne vehicles to Lil Wayne and Mack Maine . If you're interested in buying one, the lavish car is priced at $285,000.
Attention big spenders! If you have $5 million, Birdman wants to see you. The Cash Money CEO announced on his Twitter page that the New England Patriots will beat the New York Giants at Super Bowl XLVI next month... and he has five milli to prove it!
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.
