Baby To Birdman

YMCMB boss Birdman was formerly known as "Baby" when Cash Money was on the rise. His first rap moniker "B-32" stood for "Baby with the 32 gold teeth in his mouth." Although still called, "Baby" by his crew, he officially switched his moniker with his solo album Birdman in 2002, shortly after The Big Tymers disbanded.
