Birdman still wants his respect. He says on Instagram that executives should be recognized too.
“Im confused about 50 yrs of hip hop where they salute legendary artists which is well respeked. Also I think CEOs who kept these artists alive to be great showed them how to keep hip hop alive should be saluted in a major way.”
Cash Money/Young Money
A few people agreed with the Cash Money boss, including Quality Control CEO “P” and Snoop Dogg, highlighting that Birdman and his brother Slim put in the work.
You do have to admit that Birdman and Slim put together a label that ran in the late 90s and early 2000s. The label had Lil Wayne, who had the game in the palm of his hands for years.
Ultimately, he paved the way for Drake and Nicki Minaj to be the stars that they are. Birdman has seen a lot of success with these three artists alone.

Birdman’s Questions To EYL’s CEO List
Labels have always impacted Hip Hop immensely; therefore, Stunna does have a point. Cash Money/Young Money shifted the culture more than a few times.
The popular financial podcast Earn Your Leisure released its list of top ten CEOs in Hip Hop history. Birdman is at the top of their CEO list. Next are Diddy, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Russell Simmons, Master P, LA Reid, Dame Dash, Jermaine Dupri, and Suge Knight. The Cash Money boss saw the list and said “P” from Quality Control should also be on the list.
“P from @QC should be 2nd no doubt noshade jus being real gangsta CMRG.”
It looks like Birdman has liked this list since being number one, but there’s no doubt he still wants that official list from Billboard.
B.G. Almost Home
Just last week, the Cash Money CEO gave an update on rapper B.G. as he is serving time behind bars. Birdman took to Instagram to post the picture of his friend with the caption, “Be home in a minute.” B.G. ‘s scheduled release is for April of 2024, but Stunna has been hinting at an early release for a while.
