A new video message with Birdman strongly suggests a new deal has been made.
Despite his business tactics being questioned by the likes of Lil Wayne, Tyga, and others, Birdman is still recruiting new artists. Broward County, Florida rapper Robb Bank$ is the latest rapper to align himself with the Cash Money mogul, announcing the partnership on Instagram Monday. While he never explicitly says he's signed to Cash Money, the suggestion is pretty clear. "2017 takeover, Cash Money n*gga," he says, shaking hands with Birdman before the logos for CM and Rich Gang logos fade in.
A thread on KTT from November points to a post Robb Bank$ made of some Cash Money jewelry, speculating that the rapper was in the midst of signing back then. Bank$ also shared an image of himself in the studio with Birdman last October.
While it seems clear that Bank$ has inked a deal with Birdman, we've seen artists like Young Thug drop similar hints only to sign elsewhere. We'll have to wait and see what happens with Banks, but one thing's for sure, he's working closely with Birdman in the new year.
Bank$ shared his C2: Death Of My Teenage tape earlier this year. He's currently preparing a project titled FALCONIA.
