Birdman and Wack 100 have a new home for West Coast rappers looking to make a name for themselves — Cash Money West.
Wack 100 tells TMZ … he and Birdman have been in talks for a few months and recently finalized a deal to jointly launch the new division of Cash Money Records. The objective is to land up-and-coming artists ready to make the leap into the mainstream.
We’re told Cash Money’s parent company, Universal Music Group, is giving CMW strong support — a $20 million budget to get things rolling.
Wack, who manages The Game, says he pitched the West Coast concept to Birdman and his brother, Slim … and they’ve named him VP of the new company. He says Cash Money West will open their offices and studios soon.
