Birdman, ‘Rich Gang: All-Stars’ – Mixtape Review
To celebrate his 44th birthday (Feb. 15), Cash Money Records honcho Birdman released his brand new mixtape called ‘Rich Gang: All-Stars.’ The 20-track collection features Stunna’s All-Star team YMCMB as well as some of your favorite rappers in the game.
Since he’s the CEO, Birdman has the luxury of having four of the most-played songs right now on his mixtape. Drake‘s ‘Started From the Bottom,’ Ace Hood‘s ‘Bugatti,’ Lil Wayne‘s ‘Love Me’ and French Montana‘s ‘Freaks’ (featuring Nicki Minaj) are currently radio hits right now.
Although the majority of the songs on here have been previously released, there are a few standouts on ‘Rich Gang.’ Mack Maine’s braggadocio lines ‘5 in the Morning’ sound fantastic, while Mystikal brings his growling raps to the hard-edged song ‘Mamma Cry.’ Newly-signed Cash Money rapper Caskey makes his debut on the head-nodding ‘FBGM’ and R&B singer Detail croons to his ladylove on a ‘100 Favors.’
“This mixtape Rich Gang — I felt like everybody had singles out,” Birdman told MTV News. “We do so much music and I knew all of us were gonna be out here for [the NBA All-Star game], that I thought it would be cool to just put something quick together.”
