A few months ago, Bryan “Birdman” Williams tweeted about purchasing a one of a kind Maybach Exelero coupe for a whopping $8 million. Blog forums were filled with comments which condemned the Cash Money CEO for hardly ever being in the news concerning any philanthropic efforts, but instead for highlighting Gucci shopping sprees and a massive car collection which already includes a $1.5 million dollar Maybach Landaulet and a $2 million dollar Bugatti Veyron . . .whatever the heck that is.
Now, it’s been reported that Birdman has not yet paid for the newest pricey toy. And because it has ended up in the media where everyone gets to share their opinions simply because, well, we all have one, there’s a new spin on the comments being posted.

After all, anyone who could name themselves “Birdman” and still be listed by Forbes as having a net worth of at least $100 million gets my vote for some type of business sense.
Let’s say Birdman weighed his options, investments, upcoming business transactions and simply changed his mind. I mean, could a brother do that without being made a mockery of? Maybe he wants to save up more cash money before he buys the car or maybe he’s decided to lay off the purchase all together. Either way, what’s wrong with that?
This notion of buying something we really can’t afford is a problem we see extremely too often in America and especially within the Black community. Once we open our mouths about something we want to “save face” by going through with it, whether the choice is beneficial or not. READ MORE
