Cash Money Records honco Birdman is giving his fans a treat. The 43-year-old rapper and record producer recently premiered a brand new music video for his fresh track, "Dark Shades", on BET, unveiling his collaboration with his adopted son, Lil Wayne, and Young Money rapper Mack Maine.
"Dark Shades" is likely to come from Birdman's forthcoming album, "Bigger Than Life", which release date has yet to be announced. Mr. Beatz reportedly was the producer behind the track, while Colin Tilley was said to be serving as the director of the video that sees the three MCs spitting their rhymes inside a shabby and dingy warehouse.
Earlier in May, Birdman addressed rumors that he forked out $150 million to retain Weezy's recording rights. "The type of situation we did never been done in urban music; it's probably the biggest deal ever in urban music," he told MTV News without detailing the exact figure in the deal. "I'm blessed to even do that - whatever my son want, he can get. It's all his anyway, so it don't really matter to me."
