Earlier this year, Sy Ari Da Kid announced he’d signed with Birdman and Cash Money, surprisingly in the middle of a sh*t storm (no pun intended) which includes the latter’s feud with Rick Ross, a vague promise of putting out Tha Carter V, allegedly spending some of Lil Wayne’s advance money and still owing millions.
Aside from all the drama, Da Kid had his reasons for putting ink to paper on the new deal, and to justify them, he’s teamed up with his new label boss with his “Wire Transfer From Birdman” video. He does address the elephant in the room briefly and suggests the gossip machine on the matter should shut down, before taking the time to call out Epic Records who reportedly owes him a few royalty checks.
“I wanted to separate myself from all this gossip by addressing the elephant in the room, everybody wants to know ‘Does Birdman pay up?’ From all the drama with Lil Wayne (who is one of my favorite rappers). Since I just signed to Cash Money this is my side of the story, all facts no diss.”
On top of releasing the Dontell Antonio-directed clip, Sy Ari Da Kid also dropped his new 17-track album 2 Soon featuring production from TM88, Illa Jones, Bobby Kritical and more.
