The Cash Money/Young Money synergy continued recently in Miami. All the family was there: Lil Wayne, Drizzy Drake, the Birdman, Nicki Minaj, Lil Twist, Lil Chuckee, Mack Maine … everybody. Wayne and his Young Money camp shot the video for “Bed Rock,” while Birdman corralled Drake and Weezy for “4 My Town (Play Ball),” the next single off his album Priceless, due Monday.
“Me, Birdman and Wayne, we got this new song — I guess you could say it’s like another ‘Money to Blow,’ ” Drake said on set. “[The] three dudes that brought you the original are coming back, trying to make it just as big. It’s cool, man, to come out here and see the classic Cash Money feel. Everything is really big. It’s borderline cartoon. All the best things — the best cars, the best-looking women, the lights. It’s one of those videos that’s fun to do.”
Birdman continued to say that while Drake is family, he has his own niche.
“Me and my son been working 20 years, literally. Working with Drake brings a different spark,” Birdman said about working with Wayne and Drake. “[Drake's] got a different spark. He’s him. He brings him to what we do. It’s a different look. It brings something else to it. What I love about him is he does his own thing. He has his own thing with our thing and it makes it bigger. Drizzy!”
