March 04, 2013: MediaTakeOut.com CONFIRMED this morning that Bryan 'BIRDMAN' Williams just put a $1 MILLION DEPOSIT DOWN - to be one of 3 people to own the 50th anniversary Lamborghini Vaneno. When the car is delivered . . .BIRDMAN will pay the balance owed on the vehicle . . . IN CASH!!! (MTO)
Reports claim there are three buyers of the limited edition Lambo.
For its 50th anniversary, the Italian automaker has created its most bizarre car yet: Meet the Veneno, a $4 million alien craft that will be assembled for only three buyers who've already put down their deposits -- and being sold out before it goes into production is only a hint of the Veneno's speed. Thanks to Internet leaks, we can say the car was built from the Aventador chassis, and uses a 740-hp version of the 6.5-liter V-12 linked to a 7-speed automated manual transmission, good for a top speed of 220 mph. The three copies Lamborghini plans to build will have red, white, or green touches to match the Italian flag. (Yahoo Auto)
Birdman has stayed busy adding dollar signs to his name as Cash Money Records celebrated reaching a huge benchmark late last year.
Cash Money Records, the iconic record label owned and operated by brothers Bryan "Birdman" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams has added another achievement to their already lengthy roster: the sale of 500 million songs worldwide. "There is no more dynamic and prolific a label than Cash Money Records and the YMCMB family - point blank. We're proud of every one of our artists and their contribution to our legacy," says Bryan "Birdman" Williams, the Co-CEO and Founder, Cash Money Records. "What's most humbling is the global reaction to our story. Slim and I built this label from the ground up and seeing our brand connect with people across borders, culture and language makes us appreciate every one of our fans worldwide. We can't wait to deliver another 500 million bangers". (Statement)
