KAYNE WEST WAS ON THE BRINK OF JOINING Cash Money before he signed for Roc-A-Fella, Birdman claims.

But as his label already had Mannie Fresh as producer, Birdman decided to let Kanye leave and join the Roc.

The Cash Money CEO explained that even though he knew Yeezy was a special talent, there could only be one beat maker in the crew.

And Bird chose to go with Fresh, who had been with since the beginning out of loyalty to the DJ.

Speaking to Big Facts on YouTube, Bird said: “Kanye West was with me before he was Kanye West.

“I knew he was special but I let him go, because I had Mannie Fresh, and I wasn’t ever going to disrespect Fresh ‘cos I started with him.

“And it was gonna be Fresh or Ye, so I had to let Ye go.”

So when Roc-A-Fella came calling, Bird wasn’t going to stand in Kanye’s way and let him join them.

Not only that, Stunna also revealed that he flew the young Ye, who used to live with him, to meet with Jay-Z and ex-partner Dame Dash to get the deal done.
