Birdman’s next venture? Interestingly enough the rapper has scored a book deal with notable publisher Simon & Schuster. Birdman recently spoke to NBC Miami about the deal and the expansion of Cash Money.
“We publishing books. We bought Iceberg Slim whole collection,” Birdman revealed. “I’m just trying to grow as a team. We a publishing company, a merch company. And the books and movies…It’s all circling to our entertainment. I didn’t want to go too far out the entertainment. So I think the book is something that can go with the music. Publishing goes with the music. The merch goes with the music. And the movies go with the music so we stay within our realm to me. But always trying to grow and expand and do different things.”
Birdman isn’t the only Hip Hop entrepreneur plotting major business moves. Bad Boy Records’ Diddy has just revealed that he wants to become the first black owner of an American football team.
“I will be the the 1st black man to be majority owner of a NFL football team!!!! BELIEVE!! !!!!! All things are possible through Christ!,” said Diddy in a Tweet on Thursday, October 14.
