Cash Money Records boss Birdman has revealed that his label makes between $20-30 million from its artists master’s alone.
He revealed the news during a sitdown with Million Dollaz Worth of Game co-host, Wallo.

“If it has a value. That’s a value. If you don’t have a value, you sitting on some sh*t that’s dead — but it’s still your sh*t. But our sh*t had value. We license the music. I just started letting people sample my sh*t. There’s a gang of ways to make money off your masters. We generate $20 to $30 million dollars a year just on our masters,” he told Wallo.
Cash Money is home to some of rap’s biggest stars, including Drake, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. Whether they leave or stay, Cash Money still owns the masters to some of their biggest hits.
Birdman has been sued many times over not paying his artists, mainly Lil Wayne, who won a settlement back in 2018.
