Last year, Cash Money CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams announced that he was working on a Cash Money documentary. The tentative release date for the project, titled Before Anythang: The Story Behind the Cash Money Record Empire, was originally fall 2017. That’s no longer the date; the project has been moved up.
Yesterday, Birdman announced the official release date for the documentary: it’s dropping on May 12th.
May 12th is a pretty significant date for the legendary label; May 12, 1998 is the day Baby and Cash Money records signed a historic $30 million deal with Universal Records.
Before Anythang will be streamed exclusively by Apple Music. Clifton Bell is the director, while Birdman and his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams are executive producers.
Birdman is out here making movies, but he hasn’t forgotten about his music roots. The rapper recently released the Young Thug-assisted “Bit Bak,” the first single from the upcoming Rich Gang album, Rich Gang II: Lifestyles.
