When some of the best rappers are listed, there is one name who is never missed and that’s Birdman. The American singer, rapper and entrepreneur is also known with the name of Bryan “Baby” Williams. In 2019, his net worth is reported to be over $100 million. He is one of the richest and most famous rappers in the world.
Birdman’s early life was not as great as some other celebrities. He was born in New Orleans on the 13th February, 1969. We have seen many celebrities grow just because their parents were in the entertainment industry or Hollywood.
Unlike others, Birdman has faced real troubles in his early life and welcomed every problem. When he was just 2-year-old, his mother passed away and he spent his life with his father. Before he started his singing and rapping career, he was a brat.
He used to rob and was once arrested after he was caught. He was 18 that time and faced 22-month prison. After getting back from prison, he focused on his career. He was unfortunate that he also lost his father at 27.
Resources confirm that Birdman was making millions of dollars in his 20s and had reached a net worth of almost $40 million when he was just 20. No one sees such success in such early life. He was a lucky guy and his rapping career offered him a lot.
With that, he also started multiple other ventures and got into business. Almost a year ago, his net worth was reported to be more than $180 million that just saw a drastic drop of $80 million. He nowadays is facing multiple lawsuits and few celebrities claimed that he has not paid them for royalties.
Talking about his business and other works, Birdman founded Cash Money Records with his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams in 1989. His rapping career started when he paired with DJ Mannie and they both started working together.
After releasing so many albums, they finally came up with “I Got That Work” and this album sold over one million copies. After that, Birdman never looked back and reached the highest level of success.
It was in 2005 when Birdman and DJ Mannie decided to split and Li Wayne was signed to Cash Money Record. Like the previous duo, Birdman here did tremendous as well and they were successful to produce a number of highest selling albums.

At the peak of his career, Birdman bought over 100 cars every six months and gave away to friends, family and colleagues. He also owned condo in Miami of worth $30 million.
He is seen wearing expensive jewelry that include 15 carat black diamond ring and matching earrings and a $500,000 grill on his teeth. He was unlucky during Hurricane Katrina where he suffered a great loss.
He lost 20 houses and 50 cars including 2 Maybach and 4 Ferraris. Birdman’s life revolves around three important phrases; be aggressive, make a positive difference and just do it. None has seen success like Birdman and that in the very early age.
