Birdman and Apple Music have signed a deal for a documentary about Cash Money Records, according to Billboard. “Welcome to the fam [Birdman],” posted Larry Jackson, Apple Music’s head of content, on Instagram. “Tough negotiator. Much respeck.”
Despite initial reports that the entire label would be partnering with Apple Music for an exclusive streaming deal, Billboard confirms that there will actually be a documentary on Birdman and Cash Money. One of the label’s most prominent artists, Drake, was one of the first rappers to ink a deal with the streaming service, and appeared at the Apple Music reveal earlier this year.
No word yet on what exactly the documentary will cover, but reports suggest that the project will go behind-the-scenes of the rise of Cash Money, which unequivocally involves the solo careers of Drizzy, Nicki and Lil Wayne. Of course, tensions between Birdman and Wayne remain high as Weezy has two lawsuits pending involving the label.
Either way a Cash Money and Apple Music film is on its way.
