Music mogul Bryan “Birdman” Williams is a true hustla and professional businessman. In the late 90′s, he secured a $30 million distribution deal with Universal for his Cash Money label. In my opinion, Birdman is one of the greatest visionaries in music history. He and his YMCMB label outlasted Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella, Diddy and Bay Boys, Master P and No Limit and Suge Knight and Death Row Records. YMCMB is set to drop 16 projects in first half of 2012 including albums from Tyga, Birdman, Bow Wow, Lil Twist, Lil Wayne and Nicki MInaj. Birdman took a few minutes from his busy schedule to chat with Complex about YMCMB’s upcoming releases. Below are some excerpts:
On Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being 2.
“Wayne’s got an album he’s about to drop real soon. Its called I am not a Human Being 2. It’s gonna be before the summer for sure. We haven’t picked the date yet. Whenever he’s ready to drop his album, we’re gonna make it do what it do. He’s definitely got an album done and ready to go. Wayne works a lot. There’s no telling [if Rebirth 2 will happen]. But I know for sure we’ve got I Am Not A Human Being 2 ready to go. That’s the next project.”
On Like Father, Like Son 2.
“We got that finished too. We’ve been recording that. We never stopped recording [for] that. We got songs we want. When we get ready to drop it, we’ll probably do that in the 4th quarter. Wayne wants to do the I am Not a Human Being 2 and I want to do my solo album too, so we’ll probably do that later on.”
