In a recent interview with Ozone Magazine, Birdman said working with R. Kelly was his worst investment.
“Probably the worst investment I did was f***in’ with R. Kelly,” he explained. “That was a waste of my time. I could’ve made money if I wasn’t f***in’ with that clown-a** n****.”
In 2003, the pair were to record a Best Of Both Worlds 2 album, but it never saw the light of day.
Also in the interview, Birdman discusses his plans for expansion in music, his success in the oil biz, his flagship artist Lil Wayne, and the new crop of Cash Money artists next in line.
Snippets of success in the oil biz:
Ozone Mag: Not to get in your pockets too much, but I heard you’ve made over $100 million off oil.
Birdman: I did a few different deals. That was just one of them. When you’re dealing with oil, you buy in different areas. Right now I’m active; I got pumps and sh** that are getting money monthly. I like that oil sh**. I’m gonna put some more time into it.
