Birdman Welcomes Paris Hilton to Cash Money Roster
Some hungry rappers are probably angry over news that Paris Hilton – yes, the socialite – has signed to Cash Money Records.
Recently, Hilton appeared in the video for Rich Gang's "Tapout," which featured Christina Milian as her partner-in-crime. Now her cameo makes even more sense considering Rich Gang is headed by Birdman.
The Cash Money Records head honcho announced the news via Twitter today. "Welcome@ParisHilton to tha Family.RichgangRichgirl.YMCMB," he wrote. However, he wasn't the first to spill the beans.
A columnist broke news of the signing in his Showbiz 411. He spoke with Hilton about her upcoming album on the hip-hop label. Set to arrive this summer, Afrojack will produce the project and she already has a song with Lil Wayne.
Rap fans shouldn't be too disappointed in her union with Cash Money considering she's not going the hip-hop route. "This is a lot different than my first album," she explained. "It's really going to be house music."
Hilton's first album, "Paris," was released in 2006. She worked with Fat Joe and Jadakiss on the song "Fightin' Over Me."
