Slim suggested that they've got more than enough material for a compelling film.
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.
For many fans and former artists of Cash Money, Birdman is definitely the villain of this picture. Last year both he and Slim were sued by Lil Wayne for at least $51 million in damages, a suit that later expanded to include unpaid royalties to Wayne and other Cash Money artists like Drake and Nicki Minaj. However, Birdman has since appeared on stage and on record with Wayne. In December of 2002, in-house producer Mannie Fresh exited Cash Money “over a financial dispute,” but would later return.
