The Birdman premiered his latest video, for “Loyalty,” on MTV.com, and in the clip, the Cash Money Records co-CEO kicks his boastful rhymes alongside Lil Wayne and Tyga.
The video is the first offering from Birdman’s next album, Bigger Than Life, tentatively scheduled for fall release. In the clip, the three rappers appear in front of digitized backdrops featuring Tyga’s native Los Angeles and Birdman and Wayne’s New Orleans along with their adopted city, Miami.
“I got the tax on the bubble/ The money in the Hummer,” Birdman rhymes. “We shined every summer/ So we swagged out/ Gucci down/ Louis down/ Put it down/ Uptown.”
Young Money familia Drake and Mack Maine also make cameos in the clip. The video was filmed during Wayne’s feverish pre-prison shooting schedule , when he shot clips for his own projects, as well as for Young Money, Drake and Birdman.
Bigger Than Life is slated to feature collaborations with Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Bun B and Drake, in addition to Wayne and Tyga. The set is the follow-up to 2009’s Pricele$$, which spawned his breakout “Money to Blow,” featuring Lil Wayne and Drake.
In addition to prepping his album, Birdman is also putting the final touches on a mixtape titled The Godfather; a DVD project of the same name is in the works with DJ Scoob Doo . “The Godfather” DVD, similar to Lil Wayne’s “Nino Brown Story” series, will showcase behind-the-scenes footage of the making of Birdman’s album and his day-to-day presence operating Cash Money Records.
