Birdman Sued for Back Rent on Bel-Air Mansion

Birdman, one of the most iconic hip-hop executives of all time, is demanding recognition for his contributions to the industry. In a recent post on Instagram, the rapper called out Billboard for publishing a list of the top 50 rappers of all time without acknowledging the contributions of CEOs.

Birdman is widely known for founding Cash Money Records, one of the most successful hip-hop labels in history. Over the years, he has played a pivotal role in the careers of numerous rappers, including Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and Drake. Despite his numerous accomplishments, Birdman feels that he and other CEOs have been largely overlooked in discussions about the history of hip-hop.

In his Instagram post, Birdman called on Billboard to show some “respek” and recognize the contributions of hip-hop executives. He argued that CEOs are the ones who paved the way for rappers to become superstars and that they fought battles behind closed doors to make it happen.

“I’m the best to ever do it as far as CEOs,” Birdman wrote. “Put some respek on my name and stop playin with me.”

To further illustrate his point, Birdman posted a list of the top rap CEOs of all time, with himself at the top. He also advocated for Pee from Quality Control, another well-respected executive in the industry.

Birdman’s call for recognition has sparked a larger conversation about the role of executives in hip-hop. While rappers often get the lion’s share of attention, executives play a crucial role in shaping the industry and helping artists reach their full potential. As hip-hop celebrates its 50th anniversary, it’s important to acknowledge the contributions of everyone who has helped make the genre what it is today.

Birdman’s legacy as a hip-hop executive is undeniable, and his call for recognition is well-deserved. As the industry continues to evolve, it’s important to remember the contributions of those who came before and recognize the important role that executives play in shaping the music we all love.
