Birdman Wants 100 Albums Released In One Year
Not only did he reveal his ‘100 Album Plan’, but he also gave some insight as to why he is constantly rubbing his damn hands together.
Birdman talked about the overall sales for ‘Cash Money‘ which led to his lofty goal:

We have 16 releases in the first six months of this year. Our goal, as a brand, is to put out 100 albums a year. So I’m trying to figure out how we gonna reach that…
We gonna do 16 in the first six months and we gonna try this year to try to put out at least 30 this year. Next year, we’ll try to put out 50. We just gonna keep growing. To have 100 active acts is a lot. It ain’t just rappers, it’s different artists in different parts of the country: rap, pop, country, gospel—its everything.
