Birdman Net Worth is $185 Million
Born Bryan “Baby’’ Williams on 15th February 1969 in New Orleans, Louisiana, Birdman is one of the most known and richest rappers in the world today. Also an entrepreneur, he ranked at #5 on Forbes Five 2015, a list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists in the world.
Birdman Net Worth: 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.
Birdman 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 also in the business of selling spirits.
In 2010 Birdman and his brother were also 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 Net Worth: Cars, Jewelry, House
Birdman is known for his extravagant lifestyle which also 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.
He owns a condo in Miami which is worth $30 million. During Hurricane Katrina, he lost 20 houses and 50 cars including 4 Ferraris and 2 Maybachs.

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.
