Rapper Birdman Boasts About Dividing $1.4B Between Drake, Lil Wayne & Nicki Minaj

 


Cash Money Records CEO/co-founder Bryan Birdman Williams sat down for an extensive interview with the Big Facts Podcast earlier this week. During the 100-minute long conversation, the veteran music executive spoke on a myriad of topics, including that infamous kiss with Lil Wayne, has past issues with Charlamagne Tha God and Cash Money rumors.


He also flexed in his own way, boasting about giving Drake,Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne a combined $1.4 billion after landing a deal with Universal Records.


“When Universal gave me a bag, brother, I could honestly say I gave Wayne about $400 to $500 million, Drake got about $500 million and Nicki got about $300, $400 million out of my pocket,” he says in the clip. “No cap. If you don’t believe them, ask ’em.”


While Cash Money/Young Money Entertainment is responsible for launching the lucrative careers of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne ,they have all become individual success stories.


Drake is undeniably one of the most recognized musical acts in the world and up until a few years ago, he was still with the label. His most recent album, Certified Lover Boy,arrived via OVO Sound and Republic Records.


Still, during a 2019 interview with Rap Radar, he vowed to remain loyal to the empire Birdman and his brother Slim built.


“I’m always going to be involved in the Cash Money/Young Money imprint,” he said. “And my loyalty, like I said, always lies there.”


Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne also remain two of rap’s biggest stars, pulling in over $20 million and $150 million in 2020, respectively.


Of course, this isn’t the first time Birdman has bragged about his wealth. While speaking to the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast co-host Wallo in May, Birdman revealed how much money Cash Money makes annually off the masters they own.


After co-host Wallo asked how an artist can make money off the masters, Birdman explained around the seven-minute mark, “If it has a value. That’s a value. If you don’t have a value, you sitting on some shit that’s dead — but it’s still your shit. But our shit had value. We license the music.


“I just started letting people sample my shit. There’s a gang of ways to make money off your masters. We generate $20 to $30 million dollars a year just on our masters.”


So, with such amount raised by this stars dividing a billion dollars shouldn’t be a big deal he said...

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor.

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.
