Birdman Explains Plan To Drop 100 Cash Money Albums Per Year

Birdman sets some lofty goals for his crew.

It doesn't seem possible - or fiscally responsible, for that matter - but Birdman wants to drop 100 albums in a year.

Speaking to MTV News, Birdman went through the numbers and the logistics of his proposition. "Right now, as we stand, we have [48 acts] between Young Money, Cash Money, We the Best," he explained.

"The goal is to keep developing and keep putting out, so to do that we have to keep buckling down, grindin' hard and stayin' focused. And that's a big challenge, to put a hundred out."

Birdman also delved into his competitive attitude towards the music industry. "Everybody that's doin' this — outside of who we done rocked with — is really an enemy to me. So if you ain't on the team, I'm after your head," he said. "If you're doin' what we're doin'. We wanna do the most numbers every year, each year, the most digital numbers. That's what we 'bout, if you doin' this music and you ain't rockin' with us, you're on the menu so that's just what it is."

    LOL! bloody wanker good for you and your label put out as much music as you like coz at the end of the day garbage is still garbage.

    Well muthafuckas got 48 acts across 3 labels. 2 albums from every act isn't irresponsible, it's just how fuckin lazy musicians are these days. Look at release dates for albums in the 60's-70's-80's bands were puttin out 2 albums a year back then. Now it's 2 every 5 years.

    We all know Baby is saying something provocative to make newz for the label. The artists I can see him releasing really would be the cash-cows for th label (lil wayne, who won't retire...he's just trying to be provocative like Baby), Drake, Nicki Minag (her latest Re-Up isn't do much sale-wise), Mystikal& maybe another compilation (whoever can can create a buzz from their cameo appearrances on the comp might get an eventual solo shot)...& maybe Bow Wow...since his fanbase will grow even more from being the host of 106 & Park...but that's it! As much as I did like Busta Rhymes...he's all over the place in regards to direction. What Baby should have said was that he will attempt to put out at leas 100 singles with music videos for his different artists in 2013. Whichever singles create a large buzz & become hit singles will more likely lead to full album releases! The only one I see who is stil going strong & holding down their lane in terms of sales is Drake. There's serious chinks in the Cash Money armor when it comes to everyone else on that label, whether lyrically, musically, or numbers-wise.

    Good way to water down your quality even more Birdman. Fucking idiot

    its same as "birdman explains why he will part of oil business" this wont never happen. this clown even tattooed oil drill to hes head, because white man told him to do that... XD and then white man did boot hes ass from oil plans because too short money HAHAHAHAHHA

  • eyesandteeth

    The most consistent labels recently are Decon, Stones Throw, and Duck Down. These labels never put out trash, and always put out quality Music. Birdman can put out '100 albums' very cheaply, in fact, it only costs $35 to have an album on I-tunes. I have yet to purchase one Young Money release. Hell, I won't even download their shit.

    And not one of these albums is gonna top GKMC, it's all about Aftermath.

  • So....

    this nigga is bragging about having 45 acts between CM and YM, when only 4 of those are acts are the only ones who have put out albums....this dude sucks, everything he says is a lie, he's an old ass dude that talks like he's a legend when he can't even fucking rap without using "We shine every summer" in every fucking song.

    For someone who is on the business end of the music industry, you would think Birdman would know better than to 'over saturate' demand.

  • F

    What nonsense. They are all in for the money and not the music. They release bunch of crap. For them its all about Quantity over quality. They just want the money but don't take the time to create quality music. Fake ass label On the other side, Shady/Aftermath may take some time to release some music but when they do it's quality and classics. They do it for the love of music not only the money like this fake ass birdman and his stupid label. Birdman really is a retard, he doesnt have much brain cells, it shows when he talks

    • Anonymous

      Hay Anonymous GKMC have nothing to do with Shady records. Only Aftermath you dick. And to F. No Shady Records don't make classic albums. They haven't had a Classic Album since get rich or die trying and the Eminem Show. But i love the Slaughterhouse move even tho the Album was a disappointment. Stil i will never compare Shady/Aftermath(real rap) to young money(Homo rap).

    As YMCMB's relevancy slowly deteriorates.. All those numbers come from young teenage girls.. hopefully they're growing up and listening to something else.

  • Jay Kid 2 Fly

    My question is WHY? Who needs 100 albums a year from Cash Money?? I don't think the world needs that much Drake and Nicki and whome ever else. Why over saturate the market with weak music? Birdman is all about the dollar at any cost necessary. SMFH.

    he doesnt realize it's not about the quantity of albums its the quality

    if YMCMB execute a dumb move like that, the label will definitely crash and burn. #quality over quantity

      Exactly but for these retards its all about the money. They want to sell but they only release big quantities of shit. It's like a factory producing tons of low quality music. They don't enjoy the process of making music and crafting a quality album. Its all about selling and money for them

    So pretty much he is planning on releasing 100 wack albums a year? The crazy thing is that all the mindless YMCB fans are prolly going to buy them all up. Im pretty sure this guy could release an album with no music on it and attach lil wayne and drake's name to it and the fans would call it a classic. As much as i hate birdman he does a very good job on capitialzing on americans ignorance and gullibility.

    This will be the end of hiphop. We gotta stop this madness! We dont need: - faggots like Birdman and Wayne which kiss eachother - faggots with skinny jeans - that rapist and woman beater Mystikal - that fuckin barbie named Nicki - that Canadian singer whats his name: Degrassi Junior or something - those overaged metal/rap heads Limp Bizkit Dont buy these poprap releases its bad for your health.

  • IDK

    Birdman is gonna over-saturate hip hop music and his label by doing that. Look what happened to Master P and his No Limit label. He, along with he long list of acts in his label, released a bunch of albums between 1997-2000, with each album containing up to 20 tracks, and each album containing a load of guest features from the No Limit camp (in other words, quantity over quality). Luckily, this was back in the late 90s, where each album can easily go gold for peaking up at, let's say, #20 in the Billboard 200. But anyways, after 2000, No Limit's music got old pretty quickly and was very tiresome and lacked any good or new material (you'll always hear Master P rapping about how he's a No Limit soldier and making tons of money and yadda yadda yadda). So yea, Birdman can go ahead and try to get 100 albums released in a year, but will he risk of turning Cash Money, Young Money, and We the Best to another tiresome label like No Limit?

  • jay

    Quantity over Quality. Thats that sh*t I dont Like.

  • hjk

    It sounds nice, but it's impossible: 1. you have around 50 acts on label, it's not possible for them to release two albums everyone of them, most of them drops like one album in 2-3 years 2. it won't bring Birdman more money, Young Money/Cash Money/We the Best probably share their fanbases, from 100 albums, 90 albums would flop for sure. 3. many artists on YMCMB does not get as much attention as Drake or Wayne, it is too difficult to let shine 30 "new" rappers in one year 4. 100 is just too high number for ordinary fans, just imagine that every week, you are expected to buy 2 new releases, there are plenty of music released everyday besides YMCMB too, 10 releases is enough, maybe 15-20 is maximum

  • Anonymous

    Too bad most of your acts are wack. Plus you just keep most of them in the background not letting them shine. Holding people back. You call it developing I call it taking credit for work you didn't do. if your developing your artist they better be worth the wait because so far most of them are boring. #C.o.B./HorseShoe G.A.N.G #MCs #NobodyRapsLikeThem(Nobody)

    1. Always found it funny how Birdman doing the big talk, but probably working the less and getting the most money for it. 2. Seems like "onehunnid" is the only number he knows. 3. HHDX should stop putting that picture in articles about Birdman, since its so hard to take somebody seriously who had such a red star tattoo on the top of his head. At least don't remind us.

    it's easy to see what Birdman is doin here, the exact same thing that Lil Wayne did to achieve his rise to stardom... just putting shit out. content, content content. it can be good, it can be shit, but they just wanna keep putting shit out. whatever sticks to the wall is what's gonna stick. rack in the numbers, get a big roster and just have em all go to work, rack in the moolah. and it's by putting all that shit out that they get so relevant in this maimed music culture. even tho they relevant, they obviously don't always hit it outta the park. think about it, we shittin on the grammys every year, but these niggas ain't even won any Grammys last year... and we know what that show's about. they are just churning content out, I wouldn't call Birdman a genius but he ain't dumb either and I dunno how longer they gon have a power grip on modern culture like that, it's up in the air.
