Cash Money Records CEO Birdman is standing behind signing socialite Paris Hilton to his label.
The CEO recently sat down with MTV to explain his thinking in signing Paris:
“Honestly, I don’t think people know how talented Paris is. I just left from her house she was playin’ me some music and we were meeting,” the Cash Money CEO told MTV News last month, when taking a break from a Los Angeles recording session where he was finalizing his upcoming Rich Gang album. “She got a record we’re about to come out with and she’s very talented. You know she’s already somethin’ special as an entrepreneur and everything that she do,” he said. “But on the music side, I’m super excited. We all — me, Wayne, everybody — we listened to her music and she got some hits.” (MTV)
