Rick Ross Pokes Fun At Birdman’s Potential Financial Problems
By Ryan Velez
A recent story about Birdman having financial problems has provided some ammunition for Rick Ross to poke a little fun, according to Bossip.
In a series of Snapchat videos, Renzel details how Birdman's over-the-top mansion is ultimately the source of his impending money troubles. "You mean, you move to Miami and took out a loan on a mansion. Then took out another loan on a mansion and you still ain't paid [Lil Wayne]," he begins the scathing clip. "You ain't have no money in six, seven years n*gga. You should've came and borrowed something from Rozay.
“I might go buy that house on the water,” he adds. “Just to keep my boat at it. I won’t even stay there, that sh*t is too small.” This references a story from The Blast saying that Birdman is being pressured into selling his Miami mansion after failing to repay a $12 million loan.
There’s a bit of irony here, if you remember some recent coverage we had of Birdman poking fun at Lil Wayne for his own financial issues as a part of their feud. Here’s more from that story:
“On November 17th, Birdman posted a picture of an expensive Louis Vuitton toilet. The caption for the post read: "I'm buyin this b**ch got to have it asap 10 bathrooms I kan s**t all day #tunechi #originalCMB." According to Vogue, this toilet is a custom work by IIma Gore, and carries a price tag of $100,000. What does a fancy toilet have to do with Lil Wayne? Well, some are saying that the post is taking a shot at the rapper’s money issues. Those who have followed the industry know that Lil Wayne has been accusing Birdman of holding back tens of millions of dollars from him, throughout his career.
"Wayne's lawyer, Howard King, filed docs saying the Cash Money honcho and Universal backdated a deal to make it look like it was signed BEFORE Young Money's deal ran out."
The outlet continued: "In docs obtained by TMZ, Wayne's camp says Universal knew that backdating the deals would screw Lil Wayne out of profits from Young Money and the artists signed under his label."
Wayne has decided to take drastic measures to try and get his financial dues. Wayne filed documents last month that said that he would end his Young Money Records label -- which is under Cash Money Records and Universal -- if things don't get worked out with Birdman, in regards to their financial spat.”
