Birdman Claims Lil Wayne's Deal "Biggest In Urban Music"

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." Watch the interview below:

    This nigga aint got shit but baby money. BTW Cash money sucks balls none of them niggas even get my ladies money.

  • Donald Passman

    Let these negative comments about Cash Money Records be a lesson to you. Even though people talk trash about you, they can't stop you from making millions of dollars. Birdman and Lil Wayne are going to be rich until the day they die and won't let hate stop them.

    • la petite collette

      because as we all know, money equals respect and talent... right.

    • I'm Against The YMCMB

      But we still hate these fuckers with a passion. That's the beauty of it. No matter how rich they are, they still make us sick to our stomachs.

  • um

    THESE GUYS ARE JUST PUTTING THIS OUT FOR DAMAGE CONTROL FOR THE LATEST LOST SUIT, WHERE THEY LOST MORE MONEY, AND THE ARE STILL SALTY OVER THE VERSE FROM HAM. NO MATTER WHAT HE SAY ITS STILL BABY MONEY AND YOU WILL NEVER PASS JAY Z !!!!

      Jay Z isn't making nobody salty. Birdman is just happy he isn't in jail for all of those murders. Stop with all that New York City Old School Hate. We all humans and God's children.

  • daviddanielz

    Birdman at his fabricating talk again! hahahaha Wayne does big numbers but isn't showing proof. Talk is what that crew is good at, good music is what everyone else is making while they act like cornballs. That crews time is almost up for sure. Baby money!!! lol Damn they always lose.

  • I'm Against The YMCMB

    Lil Gayne is a no-good ho. He must be taken out before it's too late.

  • Chunk Dogg

    My professional (VERY PROFESSIONAL) opinion: Birdman is what's wrong with Urban Music Business being taken seriously in the world of business. He's ignorant, he lies and fabricate numbers, and he talks/acts like that Southern Uncle that got money for working forever at that Oil Refinery all them years. I can't hate on the money and impact CM/YMCMB has had on the culture, but what business sense does Birdman have? WHat business paradigms has Birdman created? Example: Puff's Sampling and Production Skills made Bad Boy Successful, Jay's Skills as an MC and Brand made him very valuable in everything he started. What has Birdman and Slim done that Master P, Luke, and Rap A Lot hasn't done already. He has Wayne to thank fopr everything they have right now, but he's too young and high to make money off of himself. Wayne can take Jay's route and grow himself into a brand because everything Cash Money is IS Wayne, and brought by Wayne...what did Birdman do. The deal for Wayne was rumored to be between 100-150 million, if that's the case (which I doubt) Jay did that a few years ago with Live Nation that included a label that Live Nation pays the overhead for. Make Birdman more responsible business wise and stop worshipping this cat without knowing facts. It's making us all look bad. Compare Birdman to Clive Calder and then tell me about Music Business Genius (Google Clive)!

  • STAN

    I also signed the biggest deal in history, I have no proof, specifics or anything, but trust me its 100% true. I make that Taylor Swift money.

  • casper21

    It must really burn this man up to know that he'll never be the mogul or have the empire that Jay or Diddy have, and I'm not even a fan of either one, but at least those two are respected in the business community and you actually hear about their actual business ventures outside of music. Diddy's restaurants and Ciroq vodka are doing alright and Jay keeps making moves, signed a deal with the Yankees that's been made public, what tangible investment has Birdman ever revealed. He keeps all his moves quiet because nobody in the business world respects the man enough to be linked to him on paper and in the public.

    • Anonymous

      Birdman is a rich bum with NO business sense at all. IMO, he should be the richer than Jay and diddy if he had a business sense.

  • YM KILLA

    I Did not hear any facts or numbers to go along with those clams reality is going to hit these lil fags harder than Daddy's dick when the straight to DVD Shit drops in the toilet or when they start "getin Hood" with country and gospel like they did with rock en roll and tight pants LOL FLOP! Birdbrain was right about one thing with no Lil Wayne there is no YMCMB because All the other "so called rappers" sound and act just like him

  • In West Philadelphia Born And Raised

    Queerman & Lil Gayne are in so much love with each other, don't you guys think it's the sweetest relationship ever???

  • JC

    Sorry Baby, but I think Kanye getting Mannie Fresh on GOOD Music is a BIGGER deal...the man who brought Cash Money into the spotlight is gonna take "YMCMB" OUT!

    • Anonymous

      Down south beats for up north rappers???? smh Mannie is a hustlers though. If you are buying them 'm selling type of nigga!!!

  • CK

    LOL, yeah right, Wayne dont even push units like that b, his world wide sales combined are lower then Em's 2nd album total, and thats not hating just being honest, No Way Wayne gets "The Biggest Deal in the history of urban music" when his best selling album is only Triple platinum and his new one sold a million less Sell that bullshit to the idiots who listen to your shit but people with Common Sense aren't fooled These guys always make themselves out to be bigger then they are, yeah there on top right now, but their on top of an incredibly bad time period and there is nothing historic or groundbreaking about anything there doing

    • CK

      How is it 0% facts, everything I said is a fact FACT # 1 = Lil Wayne isnt even in the top 10 selling rappers of all time, his entire career #'s cant touch Eminem, 2pac, Nelly, Notorious B.I.G and several others, so saying he has "The Biggest Deal in all of urban music" and not providing proof smells like BULLSHIT to me.... Fact #2 - Young Money dominates the softest market for music since the 80's, there not breaking any records or making any history, there biggest selling artist best selling album only sold triple platinum...... Juvenile sold 4 Million in 99 and he was the opening act for DMX on tour Concrete facts, call it hate all you want but its 100% reality

    Stop calling it urban music. Either just admit you're pop (which is fine) or find a new term, cause urban is straight-up dogwhistle terminology.

    everyone knows why wayne is pulling these numbers is that he didnt make much money because 75% of the album's profits went to producers.

    • Anonymous

      they dont care about money from albums. His tours alone make most his money not to mention how much he charge for features and he is over a lot of those artist in YMCB. They getting that money even if you dont like his music this is the way the game is played now and they are playing it well.
