Birdman Wants Billboard To "Put Some Respek" On The CEOs: "I'm Tha Best To Ever Do It"


It's been nearly seven years since Birdman immortalized the phrase, "Put some respek on my name," on the Breakfast Club. At the time, he took issue with the radio show's coverage of his feud with Lil Wayne. If you recall, Lil Wayne felt as though he was stuck in his Cash Money contract which hindered his creativity. However, the infamous moment continued to be a staple in Internet culture for the years to come. Quite often, you'll find someone use the gif of Birdman sitting behind a microphone with his arms crossed, demanding respect from Charlamagne Tha God.

However, the Cash Money founder apparently wants the same from Billboard. At the top of the year, Billboard and Vibe connected to deliver their definitive Top 50 Greatest Rappers list. Two of his artists - Lil Wayne and Drake - landed in the top 10. So, you'd expect him to be somewhat pleased about the list. This afternoon, he took to Instagram where he aired out Billboard for not giving the same acknowledgement to the CEOs of these labels who worked diligently to put on for the rappers.

This week, Birdman addressed the controversial list, that he feels is "well respeked." However, he felt as though they were playing him for not recognizing the CEOs at large. Cash Money undoubtedly changed hip-hop and the music industry forever, but his beef with Billboard largely has to do with the lack of acknowledgement for the CEOs, "made the way for these rappers to be supa stars."

"I see you'll did 10 best rappers which is well respeked but what about tha CEO who made thaway for these rappers to be Supa stars," he wrote. "Fought tha battle behind doors so they kan be super stars. Put some respek on my name and stop playin with me. I'm tha best to ever doit nothing but love for all CEO ever in 50yrs of hip hop we held it down cash money rich gang STUNNAMAN tha best ever #THEGOATMAKER I doit do 4MS GLADYS."
