The the Rich Gang rapper confirmed the news on Instagram that the movie titled Before Anything is only a few months away. “MAY 12 THE MOVIE #BEFORE ANYTHANG sound trak same day 20yrs cashmoney lifestyle,” he wrote along with the cover art. The biopic will chronicles Birdman and his brother Slim rise in hip hop and building one of the most recognized brands in rap music history, Cash Money Records.
The rap mogul first announced the movie last year April after seeing the success of NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton at the box office. But instead of going to the big screen, Birdman is going straight to Apple Music which has an incredible reach at the moment.
“I think that Dr. Dre and Ice Cube… I think they are geniuses for what they have done and accomplished,” Birdman said during an interview last year. “For them to do that and to make it trend-setting, they opened doors for us. And I just think that what we have is way more special, because we’re in modern times.”
