Birdman Net Worth
Birdman net worth: Birdman is an American rapper, CEO and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $80 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.
Cash Money Records is the most commercially successful label in the history of hip-hop music with 50 million records sold. At its peak, Cash Money Records pulled in $100 million per year in revenue. 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.

At his peak, Birdman owned a $30 million condo in Miami and claimed that he bought 100 new cars every six months, giving the "old" ones away to friends and family. He is typically seen wearing several million dollars worth of 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. It's unclear if this venture ever became successful or actually discovered oil.
Alleged financial issues: In January 2018 Birdman was evicted from his $14 million 20,000 square foot Miami mansion. He is currently facing a $12 million foreclosure lawsuit. In addition to his Miami mansion, Birdman has also lost his North Miami office space which is the home to his recording studio. He also has been sued by several current and former artists for failing to pay royalties. It's a strange turn of events for a man who has generated so much money during his career.
