VIDEO: Birdman Talks Transitioning From Books To Movies With Cash Money Content Star Authors


Bryan “Birdman” Williams is a busy and successful man. After running Cash Money Records with brother Ronald “Slim” Williams, and ushering in a new generation of rappers via his “son” Lil Wayne and the YMCMB roster, he’s on to the next one.

All ballers know that they need to “diversify their bonds” – and in recent years, Birdman has extended his brand into books via the Cash Money Content company. A quick riser in the Urban Fiction lane, Cash Money Content is home to authors like “Basketball Wives'” Evelyn Lozada Ochocinco, the “Queen of Street Lit”, Wahida Clark, and New York Times bestselling couple, Ashley and Jaquavis.

Below, Birdman talks with two of his authors about taking over the Urban Fiction game – and his plan to venture into movies next. Check the video:



Check out the trailer below for Ashley & JaQuavis’ Murderville 2: The Epidemic, in stores now:

    You can find these “books” in the ignorant n@gga section.

      ha haaa ! –

    • Abdul Mboob

      hate to see a niggas winning. u would rather he was servin ya mom asome dope or kickin ya door. Big up Birdman

      • Wow, can you hop off his nuts? What if Baby have to pee.
        Nobody mad about the fact that he is going the common route of exposing us of what we care about, which is other people drama. If thats his hustle, whats the difference with what he is doing in the music industry? I aint mad, it is what it is.

      • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

        Don’t be upset old top, I merely believe that the content in these books are intended for the lowest common denominator of black folks. Are you included in that group? You appear to be.

      • johnblacksad

        the lowest black folks needz luvin too… no homo! THUG LIFE! ha ha…

    • jsj23

      Easy bro! This is what they said about our Hip Hop music in the beginning. Let it start and let’s watch it blossom years down the line. If you’re still alive 15-20 years from now, look back at your comment.

      • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

        Nah. I think that in 15-20 years Birdman will be doing 15-20 years.

      • toreal

        You are such a hater and need to get a life. Black people are always trying to pull each other down.

      • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

        SMH @ The same rhetoric from an ignorant bottom feeder.

      • johnblacksad

        He is white like sperm… (no homo!)

      • toreal

        lol

    • Richie_Ochoa

      We can find you in the haters only section

      • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

        Oh yes. The stereotypical “Hater” label that ignorant n@ggas throw around when can’t debate someone that doesn’t share their f@cked up views. Way to strive for mediocrity. Exactly what I would expect from someone that reads the crap peddled by these fools.

      • johnblacksad

        what is there to debate about? You wish you still owned a few slaves! Way to strive for money & power! You mofos had so much slaves workin for ya’ll azzes, so of course you’re gonna start delvin into art, literature and what not… fukk you, fukk your (white) art… that’ aint gon save your soul!

        I got news for you… in the very end, it all evens out!

        what have you or your momma published? ya’ll are both failures (yeah, i’m talkin bout yo mama)… ya’ll ain’t even make it to the ‘ignorant nagga sektion’! Tha’s a Big L… no Flamboyant!

      • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

        Hmmm…I still wish that I owned slaves…..Well one, I wasn’t around in the 1800’s and two If I were alive back then I would probably be a slave myself because I am Black. You see how silly you sound? And then you get on the Yo Momma jokes (how old are you 12?) You only support my statement that the only people that would read this stuff AND defend it are the lowest of the LOWEST in the black community. You don’t know what I have done, but I can tell you that it is a lot more than you have I can assure you. How about you post samples of your work, and I’ll drop a link to samples of the commercials that I have produced as well as the DVD that I produced for MF DOOM. What say you John the Sad Black?

      • johnblacksad

        Oh, so you’re one of them house negroes uh?! good for you!
        I got more Yo Momma jokes than your momma… how’s that for a Yo Momma joke?

        “You don’t know what I have done, but I can tell you that it is a lot more than you have I can assure you”… self explanatory! LOL

        If i tell you i seen 3 mealz… uh, excuse-me… 3 millz before 23, would you believe me? ok, then… so what’s the point?!!! That’s 3 mothafcukin million United States Dollars tho! Please don’t ask me to snitch on myself… you don’t know why John Black Sad 4 real!

        …and who’s that MF Doom you said you produced something for?!

      • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

        You continue to prove me correct.
        Yes. I am a house negro because I don’t like sh@t that glorifies ignorant n@gga sh@t.
        Because to be a REAL black person that isn’t considered a hater, I would have to co-sign books penned by gold digging wives of athletes and other none important bull$hit.
        Also, my challenge still stands for you to post samples of your work, but since you do nothing but co-sign and stand up for ignorant sh@t, I doubt that you have anything to post. I’m done with this convo. Keep reaching for mediocrity. Peace.

    • johnblacksad

      aw fcuk you massa! not everybody is Chester Himes nor Richard Wright.. let’em do’em… why don’t you go back to your beloved white novelists and spare us your opinion

      • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

        So the only intelligent writers are White!?! You poor misguided fool.

      • johnblacksad

        Listen Rain Man, not every black writer is Chester Himes nor Richard Wright… you got that part?! ok… movin on… i said take your white-pretendin-to-be-black-azz back to some place you can check for all your white writers… who ever said anything about them being more intelligent besides your autistic azz?

        (I like Faulkner and Hemingway tho! (EDUCATED) THUG LIFE!))

    This is good! I support this %100! Being a fan of literature on vocabulary, this can only have a positive impact, if he pushes this with the same tenacity and vigor as he did his music, this will hopefully bring not only new talented writers to the forefront, but also pull the unrecognized talents of the past from the background. After all, these young writers have to mention those who influenced them. Hopefully they mention the names like James Baldwin, W.E.B. Dubois, and countless others. Time to bring these authors from the college classes to the streets! Let’s go Cash Money!

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      good point js – altho a lot of “ifs” – I agree with salty that this is crap – reading, and much more benefical choices out there – but yes, – mostly all great things started small – including Oprah,& Obama.

  • jsj23

    At least now there is a discussion on books PERIOD! Once the dust settles a bit the discussion will move to what is good literature and bad literature and all of us will publicly criticize (boo or applause) until it is molded into the way hip hop has molded. I see this publishing company potentially giving Penguin Books publishing a run for their money. Let’s give it time. Why not? let it start out small and crappy/ghetto (however you want to describe it), but remember there are the literary versions of Chuck D, Tupac, Nas, and all your other favorite rappers, who need a similar venue to be heard an read and taught in schools. Black authors have very little publishing opportunities. I bet you will see White authors hording around CMC, because when Blacks do it…something happens and everybody pay attention!
