The CEO of Young Money/Cash Moneyreveals his plans for his film “Rich Gang,” starring the YMCMB roster.
Birdman is continually looking for new ventures to rack up the dollars. The YMCMB boss revealed to XXL that he plans to make a movie starring his signees on YMCMB, through his newly launched Cash Money Films.
His debut film will be called Rich Gang, which will star Lil Wayne and other members of the YMCMB camp. Birdman also revealed he’s working on an untitled film with Omar Epps.
“We start shooting that in the fall,” Birdman said, “Thatâ€™s the whole team, thatâ€™s like a 2012 Balla Blocking. The Rich Gang movie is about the team. Everybody is going to be the star of it, but Wayne will be the center of it. Itâ€™s about the team, everybody thatâ€™s on the label.”
When asked if the film would be documentary-style or scripted, Baby says, “I would like them for just be themselves,” he continued, “Iâ€™m not gonna tell no nigga to go to acting school. Just be yourself. Weâ€™re excited as a brand about it. Tyga, everybody is like, â€˜Stunna, letâ€™s do a movie.â€™ We got a few of them lined up and we gonna shoot them.”
