Birdman shared that he gave Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj, $1.4 billion combined out of his pocket.
The Cash Money Records CEO boss defended himself on the “Big Facts” Podcast on Tuesday as he addressed several allegations and rumors over the years, which claimed that he ripped off Lil Wayne and others
Birdman co-founded Cash Money Records with his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams. In the decades that followed, it was one of the more prosperous labels churning talents like Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and others. In the same interview he said that he paid Wayne, Drake, and Nicki over a billion dollars since singing them.
“I can honestly say I gave Wayne about 400 to 500 million dollars, Drake got about 500 million dollars, and Nicki got about 300 to 400 million dollars out of my pocket, no cap, if you don’t believe me ask them,” the head of Cash Money Records said.
According to Birdman, his influence on the industry has been wide, but he hasn’t received proper recognition for it.
“I can say this here. I bless more lives than any one of these dudes who do what I do,” the 52-year-old expressed, noting his intentions are not to disrespect other figures in the business. “But ain’t no ni**a put on more n**** than me. No n**** in the game. My list go long.”
He continued, “But, I don’t get the [credit] and I ain’t tripping. I don’t give a f*** about it because I get the money. That’s what matters the most to me more than anything. I just think because we southern, we don’t get the respect.”
He also addressed the rumors of him stealing from Lil Wayne and denied that he ever stole from him or anyone else.
