Much like his story-telling ink, Birdman is in the process of revealing the story behind his rise from the NOLA projects to superstardom. He and his brother and business partner, Ronald “Slim” Williams, are developing a biopic. During an appearance earlier this year, he told students and guests at the Brooklyn School of Law that he was inspired by 2015’s N.W.A. hit film, Straight Outta Compton. According to the Williams brothers, the film will reveal the unknown true story about the rise of the two Cash Money bosses and their hip-hop powerhouse.
“The documentary is about our lives growing up before the music business. It’s about a lot of the young shit we went through growing up,” he explained about the upcoming film, which he hopes to have out very soon.
In addition to the movie, Birdman has recently returned to his roots with two new musical offerings for his fans. One, a solo album titled Ms. Gladys, which is dedicated to his mother, and will be his first solo project since 2009 is soon to drop. Since the project touches on such a personal topic, he opted to keeping the feature list to a minimum for the record.
“There may not be as many collabos, just about one or two features,” Birdman said. “It’ll just be me doing me.” His other release, Rich Gang 2, much like the first Rich Gang project, features a whole slew of artists. This time around he decided to go with artists who are mostly new to the Cash Money team.
“This project is going to be about a lot of different artists—a lot of different collaborations with varied styles. It’s a lot of my new artists: Jacquees, Neno, Ralo, Derez, J-Soul, Caskey and London. Just a bunch of new talent that I’m working with now,” he explained.

And, because mentoring the next generation of artists and businessmen and women seems to be one of Birdman’s roles as a mogul, which is evident from the many artists he has helped mold into superstars, he also offered up some words of wisdom for all of the tatted-up aspiring entrepreneurs out there: “Don’t let nothing stand in the way of what you’re trying to accomplish or what you believe in. That tattoo is something you believe in—that’s why you do it. Make sure to not let anything stop you from what you’re trying to achieve. You may have tattoos on you, but that don’t make you a different person. You just have to work harder and keep grinding.”
With over 20 years of successful business ventures, a fleet of some of the biggest music artists in the game under his imprint, and a unique talent for turning calamity into currency, one thing above all else is clear: when you’re working to come up, heed Birdman’s advice and rightfully put some respek on his name.
