Birdman makes some hefty claims about the figures Lil Wayne is pulling in.
Lil Wayne is undoubtedly one of Hip Hop's biggest stars. So when Birdman was able to retain the wildly popular rapper on Cash Money Records, he had no qualms about letting others know the significance of it. "He announced it last week that we extended our business together," said Stunna in an interview with MTV News.
"YMCMB start and stop with Wayne; it ain't no YMCMB without Wayne. The loyalty we have with each other, for each other, the loyalty and dedication for the team...the goal for us as a whole is to be the first billion-dollar music brand, because we never had that. Period. That's one of our goals. The move we just made was a big move to that, to make sure the pioneer of it, which is Wayne."
Birdman didn't get into specifics, but he hinted that Wayne's latest deal involved eye-popping figures. "The type of situation we did never been done in urban music; it's probably the biggest deal ever in urban music," claimed Birdman. "I'm blessed to even do that - whatever my son want, he can get. It's all his anyway, so it don't really matter to me. I live my life how I wanna; it's about him and them - my team."
