Birdman net worth: Birdman is an American rapper, CEO and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $170 million. Birdman, also known as Bryan "Baby" Williams is the CEO and founder of Cash Money Records. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Birdman founded Cash Money Records with his brother Ronald "Slim" Williams in 1989. The multi-talented Birdman went multi-platinum as both an artist and a producer, helping craft albums for many huge artists including Lil Wayne and Juvenile. In 2000 Birdman was even nominated for two Grammies for his song #1 Stunna which he released with Mannie Fresh as part of the rap duo Big Tymers.
But you already knew all that. What you want to know is how much cash money does Birdman have. Well consider this: Cash Money Records is the most commercially successful label in the history of hip-hop music with 50 million records sold and annual revenues in excess of $100 million. By the time Birdman was 22 he had already amassed a net worth of $40 million. Eventually Cash Money signed a distribution deal with Universal Music which would net the company a minimum of $30 million before a single record is even printed. But in the boldest move of all, when Cash Money signed with Universal they negotiated a deal which would allow them to own their masters, a deal that not even The Beatles ever had! So instead of getting a few pennies for every record sold the company gets several dollars of the profits generated per unit.
Birdman owns a $30 million condo in Miami. He claims that every 6 months he buys 100 new cars and gives away all the "old" ones. At any given time he is wearing millions of dollars worth jewelry including a 15 carat black diamond ring and matching earrings and a $500,000 grill on his teeth. He personally lost 20 houses and 50 cars including 2 Maybachs and 4 Ferraris during hurricane Katrina. In early 2010, Birdman launched a oil and energy venture under the name "Bronald Oil" with his brother. "Bronald" is a combination of his name, Bryan and his brother's name Ronald. Their plans were to explore and develop oil resources in the U.S. Gulf Coast and Oklahoma Osage County.
