Cash Money Records CEO ‘Birdman’ Talks Music and Money

Rapper and Cash Money Records CEO Birdman took some time out of his schedule recently to sit down and discuss life, music, money, and, books, with Black Enterprise magazine.

Books? Yes, books. Up next on the Cash Money CEO’s  agenda is getting into the publishing business. When asked about his publishing venture, Birdman says, ” I think we should read more as a people. And me, personally, I felt like I should read more. We have so much influence on the music world, I just wanted to convert it with books, and just get us [people of color] to read more.”

The rapper turned executive hopes his publishing company can produce at least 10 books that can be turned into films.

When asked about the secret to his success, he says, “Family; loyalty; dedication; hard work; sacrifice; a lot of hours; and being smart. Everything is about your team; it’s never a selfish achievement. I just keep going forward [and] keep trying to expand this [brand] everyday. You can’t stay small.”
