Music industry executive Birdman claims he gave more than $ 1 billion to Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj, so rappers never have to worry about putting food back on the table, MTO News confirmed.
In Birdman’s latest interview with the Big Facts Podcast, the music executive paid each of them hundreds of millions of dollars after striking a deal with Universal.
“When Universal gave me a bag bro, I can honestly say I gave Wayne around $ 400-500 million, Drake got around $ 500 million and Nicki took around $ 300-400 million out of my pocket,” he said. “No cap. Don’t you believe me? Ask them.”
Nearly a decade ago, Forbes estimated Birdman’s net worth at around $ 125 million. But it has grown substantially since then, MTO News has learned.
It seems like he’s been making big moves ever since if he was able to give his artists so much money out of pocket.
