BIRDMAN: Explains Drake’s “Unlimited Budget”
Birdman recently spoke on Drake’s alleged “unlimited budget” from Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge.
The record exec was asked about Drake’s line on “Stay Schemin’” where he says, “Tell Luican I said [eff] it, I’m tearin’ holes in my budget.” Grainge confirmed that it’s true, “If ever Drake or whenever Drake calls up and says he needs something for his project, I give it to him.”
Birdman makes the blank check budget sound like it’s just a part of business. He broke it down for the hosts of Complex’s Everyday Struggle. “I got an open book… I was given an open book with Doug [Morris] and Mel at a young age in the business. When Lucian came he gave me a bigger book. So with me having an open book, I gave Wayne an open book. He opened his book for Drake and Nicki, and now they’re doin' the same thing. I gave Young Thug an open book so he opened his book for other people. What I mean by open book [is] you can spend any amount of money you want.”
