Birdman adds two new artists to the Cash Money family.
Though he's experienced some dissent within his ranks, Birdman is adding to his roster at Cash Money. The latest Cash Money signees come from opposite sides of the country, Philly's AR-AB and Compton Menace (from the CPT, of course). AR-AB shared a video of himself and Menace standing behind Birdman as the Cash Money boss announced the new signings.
"My n*gga Menace, my n*gga AR, y'all got the green light from me," said Bird, "N*gga I'm fuckin' with that. West Coast, Philly, let's get it." AR titled the video "AR-AB signs a deal with Cash Money/Rich Gang," and uploaded it to his YouTube channel. The Philly rapper also tweeted a picture showing the Cash Money logo next to that of his own brand, OBH. "Men of honor," he captioned the post.
AR-AB also mentioned his new label in his latest track, "Law Freestyle." He shouts out Cash Money, Rich Gang, Compton Menace, and Birdman during the intro. Soon into the song, he raps, "Cash Money Records, baby, pass the ball."

AR-AB has long had a solid following in Philly, but he made nationwide headlines last summer when he got involved in the Drake vs. Meek Mill beef that shook the rap world. Drake namedropped AR-AB on "Back to Back," and Meek then dissed his Philly compatriot after he seemed to take Drake's shout-out as a compliment. AR-AB even dropped a "Back to Back" Meek diss of his own.
Compton Menace also confirmed the signing via social media. He posted a picture of two Cash Money chains to his Instagram, and wrote, "When it's 4real." Congrats to both artists on their new deals.
