Hailed in a recent Miami Herald profile as ‘head of one of the last-standing triple crown crews,' Cash Money founder/mogul/award winning rapper Birdman (aka Baby) is about to add to his multi-platinum hit-making legacy once again with his much anticipated third solo album - 5 "Star" Stunna. The 22 song CD is due in stores on December 11th.See Also:
The CD features the explosive new single, "100 Million," featuring Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, and Rick Ross ; along with the production of Cool & Dre. The new video for the sizzling song premiered on BET's Access Granted over Thanksgiving weekend to a rousing response, garnering more than 20,000 views via the internet's most popular video sharing destination, YouTube, within its first 24 hours of availability. The trailer for the new clip has already become a viewing staple of taste-making hip-hop sites such as xxlmag.com and yoraps.com, and others. The song follows Birdman's previous pre-release scorcher "Pop Bottles," featuring Lil Wayne, which quickly became one of the most played hits of urban radio, video, ringtone and digital domains. The video for "100 Million" will be the New Joint on BET's signature show 106 & Park on the day of the album's release, December 11th.
The new album features a host of superstar producers and collaborators joining Birdman, including Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Cash Money newcomer Brisco, and producers Cool & Dre, T-Mixx and Steve Morales, among others. Songs lighting up the new disc - produced almost entirely in Miami's Hit Factory studios - include "I Run This" featuring Lil Wayne, "I'm A Stunna," and "Grind," featuring Lil Wayne and Brisco.
Most recently, Birdman pulled down the fan-voted Alltel Wireless People's Champ Award at the 2nd Annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, snagging the coveted ‘people's prize' with Cash Money signature star Lil Wayne for their Collabo smash "Stuntin' Like My Daddy." The scorching hit was the touchstone anthem from the duo's epic 2006 pairing, the platinum-plus Like Father Like Son.
"We've never fallen off the rock," he recently told the Miami Herald interviewer, holding it down even after Hurricane Katrina rocked his hometown of New Orleans. "We still got our New Orleans swag, but Miami is home now too," says Birdman. "This city has definitely influenced the new album, but our fans know we go real hard wherever we coming from."
