Birdman Trying to Sign Chief Keef to Cash Money


Birdman isn’t stopping at signing Limp Bizkit. The Cash Money CEO has also stepped into an apparent bidding war over the ever-buzzing Chief Keef, the Chicago rapper whose breakout song was recently blessed by Kanye West. Birdman keeps pressing on as a musician, too, most recently releasing a music video for his cameo-studded track “B Boyz.”

Birdman is looking to bring Chief Keef into the star-studded Young Money fold, MTV reports. “I like him, he kinda reminds me of us,” Birdman is quoted as saying about Keef. “[He’s] out the streets, I think he’s swagged up and I’m definitely talking to his people and I’d like to see if we can make it pop, see if I can see if I can get him to be down with the team.” Keef himself tweeted in April, “Birdman Just Called He Say He Wanna Sign Me Wit #CMB.”

Meanwhile, Birdman stars in a new video for “B Boyz,” from his joint mixtape with Young Money president Mack Maine, Billionaire Minds, hosted by DJ Khaled. Recent Interscope signee Kendrick Lamar, who demonstrated his impeccable rapping abilities at Coachella, delivers his own tongue-twisting blizzard of verbiage, rapping, “Mack in the back of a lac, with a mac in the back of a lac, with a latch on the back of the trunk.” Khaled’s We the Best signing Ace Hood also guests, while Lil Wanye and Kevin Rudolf poke their heads into the video, which follows the rappers through their hometowns and teaches us about fancy cars.
