Inspired by the success of NWA’s biopic Straight Outta Compton, Birdman is reportedly working on one of his own for Cash Money Records.
Birdman and Slim announced the idea of a Cash Money Records biopic during an interview at Brooklyn Law School on Wednesday, April 20th. The script is already in development with Birdman and Slim and the two had no problem saying that there is nothing they’ve ever done more important than it.
“Can I tell you something my brother told me?” Baby asked the moderator. “He said everything we’ve ever did – and I got 20 plus years selling records – nothing we ever did is worth more than that script. I’m excited about the script. That’s something I really want to do.”
Speaking on Straight Outta Compton:
“[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.”
Slim also revealed that there is a Cash Money Records book on the way, but didn’t reveal which would come first.
