Birdman is an American rapper, record producer, and entertainer who made it big financially when he was still a young lad. From producing music for other rappers to producing his own music and venturing into business, he has been successful at almost everything he sets his mind on. Here is the story of one of America’s most loved and richest musicians who is also an entrepreneur, he ranked at #5 on Forbes Five 2015, a list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists in the world.

Birdman’s Early Life

Born Bryan “Baby’’ Williams a day after Valentine’s day on 15th February 1969 in New Orleans, Louisiana, Birdman is one of the most known and richest rappers in the world today. He had it rough in life while growing up and didn’t have a formal education like most kids his age had access to at the time.

His mum Ms. Gladys died 2 years after he was born, while his father, a Vietnam veteran died in a car accident years later. These unfortunate circumstances put Birdman in an orphanage home for boys for some time and homeless afterwards. Being homeless and without any guidance and no relation looking after him, young Birdman took to the streets and spent his formative years growing up in the crime-ridden Magnolia Projects in the 3rd Ward Orleans. At a time he lived in Ford Heights where he embraced criminal activities like going for robberies, selling heroin and other illegal substances. In the course of time, he got arrested for drug possession and sentenced to 3 years behind bars at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center. Here he spent 22 months of reformation as, by the time he was out, his interest in music had started getting more of his productive time.

Birdman Net Worth and Cash Money Records

Birdman is the CEO and founder of Cash Money Records. He founded this company with his brother, Ronald ‘slim’ Williams in 1987. He has made a lot of money producing music for a number of successful music artists, including Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. His records have been certified multi-platinum.

Cash Money Records is recognized as the most commercially successful label as far as hip-hop music is concerned. The company has sold 50 million records and has annual revenue in excess of $100 million.

Cash Money Records, later on, signed a distribution deal with Universal Music. This deal would net Cash Money Records a minimum of $30 million even before the company printed a single record. However, the best deal that Cash Money Records ever made with Universal Music was the one that allowed them to own masters. This meant that instead of getting a few pennies for every record sold, the company now began getting several dollars out of the profits generated after the sale of every unit. The profits made by Cash Money Records over the years have contributed immensely to Birdman’s net worth.

Music Sales & Business

Apart from producing music for other artists, Birdman is also a great musician in his own right. In 2000, he was actually nominated for two Grammys for one of his songs in which he collaborated with another rap musician known as Mannie Fresh. By the time he was 22 years old, he was already worth $44 million. Like the records that he produced, his songs also became multi-platinum.

In addition to the record label, Birdman also owns a clothing line business and is in the business of selling spirits.

In 2010 Birdman and his brother were involved in an oil and energy venture under the name “Bronald Oil”. They had planned to start exploring and developing oil resources in Oklahoma Osage County and the US Gulf coast. However, everything went quiet and there is no current information on the progress of the venture.

Birdman’s Cars, Jewelry, Tattoos, and Houses

Birdman is known for his extravagant lifestyle which appears to be one of his weaknesses. The rapper claims that he buys 10 new cars every six months and gives the old ones away. His fleet includes Maybach Landaulet, Lamborghini Aventador, Bugatti Veyron, and Maybach Exelero.

He is also known to wear jewelry worth millions of dollars at once, including a 15-carat black diamond ring, matching earrings, and a $500 000 grill on his teeth. He has a knack for signature brands like Loius Vuitton and Cartier. His diamond teeth cost $1 million.

Apart from cars and jewelry, another thing which he has in abundance is his tattoos. Birdman is inked in almost all publicly visible part of his body, with each tattoo having an underlying meaning and reason behind each. He mostly gets tattoos for important family and money purposes. However, in recent times, he got rid of the grills on his teeth and is reported to have plans of taking off the tattoos on his face. The tattoos on his face include a star on the side of his face, a cross above his nose and a teardrop at the edge of his eyelid.

Charity Work

Birdman is also involved in charity work. He has donated a substantial amount of his wealth to charitable causes. At Swizz Beats’ 2013 Bronx Charter School for the Arts Fundraiser, Birdman gave $50,000.

During Thanksgiving 2012 at New Orleans, Birdman and brother Ronald ‘slim’ Williams gave away an undisclosed amount. They also distributed turkeys and other Thanksgiving essentials to residents. Beyond borders, Birdman’s cash has benefitted causes in Great Britain.

What is Birdman’s Relationship With Toni Braxton or Is He Gay?

Birdman’s relationship with Toni Braxton has been met with so much public disapproval. The pairing according to the public’s interpretation is one between a ‘bad boy: Birdman’ and a ‘good girl: Toni Braxton’ which shouldn’t be. The subject of Birdman’s sexuality which at the time was yet to be addressed was also part of what infuriated the public. This has been addressed in a video which showed where Birdman took a kiss from his girlfriend, Toni Braxton. We can therefore rightfully infer that he is not gay.

The tag of good and bad is merely a subjective one and doesn’t hold much force to uproot what love planted between Birdman and Toni Braxton. The two lovers got married quietly and there is no suspicion of them parting ways soon.
