Birdman Gives Words Of Advice For Lil Wayne

Posted: Thursday – December 3, 2009

“It’s about him right now. I got to deal with a situation I’ve never had to deal with in my life. It ain’t cool with me, but we have to live through it.”

Cash Money seems to be one of the last major labels still around even with the absence of former popular members Mannie Fresh and Juvenile. With Lil Wayne facing a possible year sentence there are questions of the future of Young Money.

Birdman recently spoke with the Associated Press about his latest album Priceless and advice that he has for his son Lil Wayne before he serves his time.

“To keep doing what he loves – music. That’s the only thing we’ve got. You take that away from us, we really don’t need to live. Music, that’s the only thing that gets the stress off your mind to make you feel better. It’s how good it sounds after you’ve done it. The enjoyment of it.”

Birdman says there won’t be a drought of music from Wayne while he’s away. “Of course. I don’t know how many. It’s up to him. It’s his world. My son is his own boss. Whatever he wants to do, we’ll back him up.”

Birdman compared their label to other labels on success. “Now I don’t see any top labels. I look around and see all those people who did it before me. To me, the labels, I don’t see no company with constant success with a clique. At some point, there was a lot of people doing this. It used to be crowded. I see a lot of people who have don’t it, and now don’t see them.”

Mack 10 Secures Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Jim Jones for New Album

Posted: Monday – July 6, 2009

Armed with a renewed focus and an all-star list of collaborator, West Coast rap star/actor Mack 10 plans to wrap up the summer in grand fashion with his forthcoming album Soft White.

The release is the follow-up to the Inglewood, Ca. native’s previous offering, 2005’s Hustla’s Handbook, which included the Nate Dogg-assisted single “Like That.”

For Soft White, Mack 10 admitted to having “fun” while working on the project as he explained the meaning behind the album’s name.

“I went with that title because this album right here is just raw and uncut, it’s just me,” Mack 10 stated. “We had fun on this one and I had to bring them all out, I’ve been smiling all year.”

Among those on hand to craft Soft White are music producer Jazze Pha and R&B crooners Anthony Hamilton, J. Holiday and Akon.

Rappers Jim Jones, Birdman and Glasses Malone have also been recruited for the album as well as Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, who both appear on Soft White’s first single, “So Sharp.”

The release of the album is the latest chapter in the music career of Mack10, who has sold nearly 3 million albums.

The rap veteran first emerged on the scene in 1995 with his self-titled debut album, which charted at number 2 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

The following year, Mack 10 aligned with fellow West Coast rap artists Ice Cube and WC to form Westside Connection.

The trio released their critically acclaimed platinum debut, Bow Down, in 1996.

Following Bow Down’s release, Mack 10 remained a fixture on the rap scene with a string of albums like Based on a True Story, The Recipe, The Paper Route and his 2003 Cash Money Records release Ghetto, Gutter & Gangster.

Mack 10’s Soft White is slated to hit stores on August 25. A video for “So Sharp” will be released in the coming weeks.
