Even though Birdman has been recently called out by Rick Ross for his alleged faulty business tactics, his label, Cash Money Records, remains formidable after 20 years in the business. On Wednesday (April 5), Birdman revealed on Instagram that Cash Money had officially netted one billion units sold.
“Presented to Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams to commemorate worldwide sales of more than 1 billion units,” reads the plaque shown in Birdman’s Instagram clip.
“Big boy sh-t right here baby. A billion units. I mean to say this, to all you d–k-sucking f–k n—-s, like, forreal, forreal,” he says in the video. “I don’t give a f–k about selling no records b—h, I accomplished what I never thought I could accomplish. This sh-t bigger than McDonald’s, b-tch.”
“Birdman is supposed to be in that f–king building making those f–king people give him money to take care of his man,” Ross told Billboard in an interview. “They supposed to be in the f–king [building], flipping over desks in those f–king offices, fighting to get money. Not f–king suing each other, fighting lawsuits and everybody starving. Not putting out music, not being creative. Us not doing what we came here for. There’s nothing more I hate than that — us not doing what we came here for.”
Birdman replied to Ross’ attacks in an interview with Billboard following the song’s release. “I don’t get caught up in h-e sh-t, man. I just keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing,” he said. “I don’t get caught up in that, I don’t play like that. I’m a man and I stand my ground and I do my thing. Numbers don’t lie, and that’s all I give a f–k about: numbers, and puttin’ them up.”
