Birdman and Slim, co-owners of Cash Money Records, are following in the steps of N.W.A., Tupac and The Notorious B. I. G. by releasing a biopic on the music label’s rise to fame.
The two were guests at Brooklyn Law School on April 19 when they announced that the two are working on a script for a Cash Money biopic.

“[Look at the] Straight Outta Compton [movie]. I think that Dr. Dre and Ice Cube are geniuses for what they have done and accomplished,” continued Baby. “For them to do that [movie] and to make it trend-setting, they opened doors for us, and I think that what we have is way more special because we’re in modern times.”
When asked if he was thinking of writing a book and then making it into a screenplay, Slim wasn’t sure, but he said he’s been working on a script. “This is gold. There’s a lot of things that people don’t know that we went through, things that happened behind the scenes of the company, things that happened before we were with Universal. So we got a lot of stories, but the way I’m putting it together is gonna be great.”
It goes without saying that a CMR biopic would be legendary given what the label means to southern hip-hop, the early 2000s and just music in general. XXL captured the exclusive audio that you can hear below. If Baby and Slim touch on EVERYTHING this will surely be one to remember.
