Birdman Says Drake, Lil Wayne And Nicki Minaj Could Get An Easy $20M For A Show Together

Birdman is confident that his Cash Money/Young Money alumni Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne could command $ 20 million if they banded together for a show. Appearing on a recent episode of The 85 South Comedy Show podcast, the Cash Money Records mogul claimed that while his label has been sent offers upwards of $4million to $ 5 million for just Weezy alone if Nicki and Drizzy were added to the mix the fee would quadruple.


“So you know with Nicki and Drake, that shit about $15-20million a show,” he said. “Big facts. A lot of [money on the table]. $4-5million a show. We’ve been offered about $ 4-5 million a show. That’s without Drake and Nicki.”

Big money has always been in play with the former YMCMB superstars. Back in 2021, Birdman revealed he allegedly gave Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne a combined $ 1.4 billion after landing a deal with Universal Records.

“When Universal gave me a bag, brother, I could honestly say I gave Wayne about $400 to $500million, Drake got about $500million and Nicki got about $300, $400million out of my pocket,” he said. “No cap. If you don’t believe them, ask ’em.”


Drake is undeniably one of the most recognized musical acts in the world and up until a few years ago, he was still with the label. However, starting with 2021’s Certified Lover Boy, his projects have since been distributed via OVO Sound and Republic Records.

Still, during a 2019 interview with Rap Radar, he vowed to remain loyal to the empire Birdman and his brother Slim built. “I’m always going to be involved in the Cash Money/Young Money imprint,” he said. “And my loyalty, as I said, always lies there.”

In August 2022, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Drake shared the stage for the first time in almost a decade at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage for the slightly-delayed third and final night of Drake’s October World Weekend festival.

At the end of the star-studded show, Lil Wayne interrupted Drake’s farewell speech to reveal his Tha Carter VI album is on the way. “I’m working on Carter VI, coming soon!” he told the crowd.


A giant sign reading “Tha Carter VI” appeared on the onstage screen as the night came to a close, but one year later, it has still yet to materialize.
