The deal Birdman signed with Apple Music for Cash Money is actually for an upcoming documentary, according to Billboard. It might also have something to do with the Cash Money biopic that Baby and Slim talked about earlier this year.

Original Story:

Apple Music has added another boss, and label, to its roster, with Birdman posting the above photo to Instagram over the weekend, announcing that he's inked a deal with the music streaming giant. "It's official," he wrote, tagging Larry Jackson, who heads Apple's original music content. "Cash money makes a power move wit @applemusic." If you recall the text conversation between 2 Chainz and Drake that Chainz shared in announcing his mixtape Daniel Son; Necklace Don, Drizzy asks if the rapper had talked to Larry. Same guy.

The news of Birdman's deal comes less than a week after Travis Scott announced he has received his own Beats 1 radio show on the streaming service. Scott joins DJ Khaled, Drake and more with their own Beats 1 radio shows, and while the details of Birdman's deal with Apple aren't yet known, previous partnerships that have produced commercials, exclusives and more hint at what might come from the union.

One has to wonder what Lil Wayne thinks of a deal like this. You'll recall Weezy dropping his FWA on TIDAL last year, so a deal with Apple Music might have him a little confused.

Considering that earlier this month Birdman had posted a video to Instagram showing that he had reunited with Young Thug, who himself has a project on the way, perhaps the fruits of the new deal will show themselves sooner rather than later. Check Birdman's photo alongside Jackson up above, which he curiously tags with #RichGang and #Lifestyle. We will update the terms of the deal as they reveal themselves. The move is just the latest for the power playing Cash Money mogul, who will appear in the upcoming season of Empire as well.
