Since 2014, Birdman has dealt with his fair share of struggle with his label, Cash Money Records. When the year began, Birdman looked as if he would sign Young Thug and Young Scooter. Meanwhile, Lil Wayne had Tha Carter V coming, but it was met with several delays.
Lil Wayne, despite having a hit single, “Believe Me,” with Drake, didn’t drop his album and soon called Birdman out. With his album continually delayed, Wayne joined Jay Z at TIDAL to drop a project. His decision led to Cash Money filing a lawsuit, later dismissed.
Birdman has now joined the streaming wars, with Cash Money Records now being a part of the Apple Music family. Announcing via Instagram, he met with Larry Jackson for this deal. While he is still with Universal, all digital releases will come via Apple Music.
