It looks like Cash Money Records and Bryan “Birdman” Williams have signed a deal with Apple Music, as the streaming wars between the company and Tidal continue to rage on.
It makes a little more sense that Birdman would rock with Apple. Drake, arguably the biggest act on Cash Money, did a $19 million dollar deal with Apple last year.
Birdman says the deal is life changing in this post with Apple’s Larry Jackson. Larry Jackson was an Executive Vice President over at Interscope/Universal for many years, before he rolled out with Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre to blow up Beat Electronics, which was acquired by Apple in 2014 for $3 billion.
A source told AllHipHop.com that Birdman was a “tough negotiator” during the process of closing the deal with Apple.
