Birdman Outlasted His Competitors
Brian "Birdman" Williams took a moment to marvel at Cash Money's staying power in a recent interview with XXL magazine. The Cash Money founder has noticed that many of the rappers and labels that were there when he began has journey have come and gone in the many years since.
"When I look around, through my years and my time, you know, the game, it was a lot in the field, a lot of people doing it," he says. "And I look around, and it's like, where the f*ck did everybody go? I ain't never understood that, but the game like that sometimes, that muthaf*cka's gon' keep ya or it's gon' leave ya. It's all on you."
Baby also discussed Wayne's growth as a businessman with Young Money.
"Honestly, I gave him the floor," Baby says of Weezy. "He wanted it. I been with him since he was seven years old, eight years old. I been in his life all of his life, and he was like, "Let me handle, it." At the time, me as an artist, losing my sister and everything I was going through personally, I was just like, 'Go ahead, I'ma just support what you gon' do. You can handle it.' And I took a step back. Probably was the [smartest] move I ever made in my life was to let him go 'head."
