Fresh from making the top five of Forbes’ highest-paid hip-hop entertainers list , Cash Money honcho Birdman is this week’s featured guest on Thursday’s “RapFix Live” at 4 p.m. ET on MTV.com.
After new Shady Records signee Yelawolf graced the studio last week with his smooth Southern charm, this week’s show will focus on an in-depth interview with New Orleans native Birdman. The $100 million man is doing pretty well for himself thanks to the overwhelming popularity of protégé Lil Wayne’s Young Money roster, which includes fellow hitmakers Drake and Nicki Minaj.
Birdman has been in the news of late as well due to a supposed brewing feud between the Cash Money mogul and Jay-Z. In Kanye West and Jay’s “H.A.M.” collabo, Birdman took umbrage to Jay’s line “Really, you got baby money,” the assumption being that Jay was aiming his barbs at Lil Wayne’s Young Money success. Birdman responded vaguely via Twitter with, “We gonna keep spending ’baby money’ …billionaire minds stay tuned.”
Birdman’s appearance on “RapFix Live” serves as a preview for the new MTV series “Deep Cover,” in which Sway will take viewers deep into the daily operations of Birdman and his Cash Money Records operation.
Keeping things in the Cash Money family, “RapFix Live” will also focus on Lil Wayne’s I Am Music II Tour and will be featuring exclusive coverage of the Wednesday night kickoff with live-blogging from MTV’s RapFix staff.
Don’t miss “RapFix Live” this Thursday at 4 p.m. ET on MTV.com for Sway’s interview with Cash Money boss Birdman.
