Music industry executive Birdman claims that he dished out over a billion dollars to Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj – so that the rappers never have to worry about putting food on the table again, 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, brother, I can honestly say I gave Wayne about $400-500 million, Drake got about $500 million, and Nicki got about $300-400 million out of my pocket,” he said. “No cap. You don’t believe me? Ask them.”
Nearly a decade ago, Birdman’s net worth was estimated at around $125 million by Forbes. But it’s grown substantially since then, MTO News has learned.
It seems that he’s been making major moves since then if he was able to give his artists this much money out of pocket.
