Friday, Mar 5, 2010 4:45PM
The legitimacy of Bryan "Birdman" Williams' new Bronald Oil & Gas Company has been questioned once again after the rapper covered up his company tattoo.
Baby now sports a red star over the image.
Rapper-turned-oil magnate Birdman (a.k.a Bryan "Baby" Williams) may have reneged on his and brother Slim's (a.k.a. Ronald Williams) plans to start an oil company. The Cash Money Records founder was sighted with a new star tattoo on his skull that all but completely blocks out the inked-on "Bronald" logo taken as a symbol of his devotion to the endeavor.

Bloggers have speculated that Baby is has something to hide.
Check Birdman's new tattoos. Yea the big star on the top of his head is old but he added a couple of new ones...one which strategically covers his Bronald tattoo complete with picture of an oil pump. If Bronald Oil is legit well then Birdman's new tats send a terrible message. Regardless, it's clear there is a cover up going on...on his head and possibly in real life. (Woooha)
According to recent reports, Birdman's company listings and locations have not been verified.
As for what Bronald is doing in the oil and natural-gas business, the Williams brothers declined through their publicist, Kia Selby, to comment. Selby said she was unable to provide information about the oil company. Bronald doesn't have a listed telephone number. Numbers for residences in New Orleans and Florida that are linked to Bronald in state records don't take incoming calls. (Bloomberg)
He previously confirmed the existence of his oil and natural gas company.
"I've been in the oil business about 4 or 5 years now," he revealed in an interview. "That's something me and my brother decided to do outside of music. I read about oil a lot and I was able to get in business. [My company] is called [Bronald] Oil, and I'm making good money off that; that's something for my kids and my kids' kids. They can live off that money forever. 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*t that are getting money monthly. I like that oil sh*t. I'm gonna put some more time into it." (Ozone Magazine)
