Hip-Hop mogul, Birdman has just taken delivery of two Bentley Mulsanne’s and a Rolls-Royce Ghost. The video below shows the moment when he gifts the Rolls-Royce to Mack Maine and one of the two Bentley’s to Lil Wayne. Presumably, the other Bentley was kept as a day-to-day runabout. It joins Birdman’s infamous solid red Bugatti Veyron and Mayback Landaulet.
In case you are wondering just who these people are. Birdman is the founded of Cash Money Records which he started in 1990 with his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams (tall man in the video). Starting from more or less nothing, Birdman built an empire off the back of recording artists such as Lil Wayne, Jay Sean and DJ Khaled. From nothing, Birdman is now worth around $400 million according to Forbes.
Mack Maine, the recipient of the Rolls-Royce Ghost is the current president of Cash Money Records, a record label started by Lil Wayne. Noteable recording artists on this label include Lil Wayne himself, Drake, Nicki Minaj and T-Pain.
Perhaps this is the start of Bentley’s plan to court Maybach customers? It’s probably a little early to tell. The Bentley Mulsanne has a 6¾ liter V8 which develops 505bhp and 1,020Nm of torque at 1,800rev/min. The Rolls-Royce Ghost gets a 6.6 liter twin-turbo charged V12 engine which produces 563hp and 780Nm of torque at just 1,500rpm.
