Birdman and Wack 100 Establishing Cash Money West

No, Cash Money Records is not collaborating with Kanye West.

TMZ shares that Wack 100 said he "and Birdman have been in talks for a few months and recently finalized a deal to jointly launch the new division of Cash Money Records. The objective is to land up-and-coming artists ready to make the leap into the mainstream."

TMZ also shared that Universal Music Group is tossing $20 million in the budget for Cash Money West, and that the offices will be opening soon.

To be fair, Birdman did do a great job breaking quite a few artists. Let's just hope he doesn't hold them hostage / not pay them / not let them release their music as a power play.
