Birdman Will Do Whatever It Takes To Sign Chief Keef To Cash Money

Birdman wants to sign the 16 year old artist Chief Keef to Cash Money so badly, he says he will do whatever it takes. With Kanye West remixing the song and Boy Better Know, it seems a lot of people are feeling the young Chicago rapper.

“I like him, he kinda reminds me of us,” said Birdman in an interview with MTV News”[He’s] out the streets, I think he’s swagged up and I’m definitely talking to his people and I’d like to see if we can make it pop, see if I can see if I can get him to be down with the team.”

He continued about his interest in Keef. 

“That’s what I like, it’s a movement and he’s young, I think the game needs young blood all the time,” he said. “[We] need youngsters to keep it innovative, because they’re new and creative in their own way. I’m into the young world, that’s my thing. And I’ma do whatever it takes to make it happen.”

Cash Money Records Sued For Not Paying Royalties

EMI is suing Cash Money for stopping quarterly payments they had agreed to make in 2009 as part of a settlement. Allegedly Cash Money owes EMI $491,000 for samples from EMI’s catalog.

“Because Defendant has ignored numerous communications from EMI regarding Defendant’s contractual obligations, EMI once more is being forced to commence a lawsuit against Defendant to recover royalty payments,” states the complaint. “The sales of Defendant’s products have far exceeded the payments that EMI has received.”

“It is clear from Defendant’s conduct that it has no intention of honoring the Agreement.”

It’s not new for Cash Money as they have had constant lawsuits over the past few years.

Birdman Explains Signing Limp Bizkit To Cash Money

Birdman explains the reason behind signing rap-rock band Limp Bizkit.

“Fred [Durst] reached out, bruh,” Birdman said in an interview with XXLmag.com. “It was weird how it happened. He was like, ‘Stunna, what’s good?’ I was like, ‘What’s poppin, 5?’ [Fred said] ‘I wanna join the team.’ Whoa! For real? He didn’t have to say it twice. I was already a fan of him. When the opportunity came, we really was supposed to announce it at the Grammys. Wayne was going to announce it at the Grammys, but he did it when he felt like it.”

Birdman also added that the groups first single will be out next week and will feature Lil Wayne.

“He’s a visionary, he a great artist,” Birdman said of Durst. “Also, I want him to be a part of our staff and take over the rock department and bring us over more talent because that’s what he does. I think with having Limp he brings a lot.”
