When you’re a Cash Money Millionaire the sky is the limit when your are popping tags. Birdman dropped several bands on a recent shopping trip with Complex.

He was joined by Joe La Puma on the newest episode of Sneaker Shopping. The two toured the vast selection at Flight Club’s Los Angeles location as they discussed Baby’s style throughout the years.

Stunna detailed gravitating towards the Reebok brand in the early years of the label. “We were more into the Chuck Taylors and Reeboks. You know Nike was a fad at the time but our projects; we were Reeboks and Girbauds [jeans].

When asked why he has historically shied away Jordans he admitted that he didn’t stan for the highly sought after kickz. “I love Jordans but I don’t know the collection like that. I[‘m a Michael Jordan fan but I never been big into the shoes” he explained.

Naturally his sponsorship deal with Lugz was also a topic. Birdman cited the partnership as very lucrative. “They bought me houses. My house in New Orleans they paid for that; three million dollars”.

After the discussion Baby gets to doing what he does best; shopping. He gifts his entire entourage pairs of Jordans, Yeezy’s and Air Force One’s for himself costing him almost 9K. #MustBeNice

Complex “Blueprint” Series Interviews Angie Martinez [VIDEO]

Angie Martinez didn’t become the “The Voice of New York” overnight. The Brooklyn native put in years of work before being a Hip-Hop radio icon. She recently sat down with the Complex Blueprint series to discuss her monumental come up and more.

With a parent in the radio business Angie developed an interest in broadcasting at a very early age. “I remember growing up and hearing my mother say things [like] ‘Oh these jocks, I hate when they love the sound of their own voice.’ I had that insight of the other side of radio as a kid because I always heard that from her” she explained.

Martinez also details her professional entry into the game as an intern for Power 96 Miami. The opportunity didn’t come via a job interview but rather as a second chance to get her teenage years in order after developing a habit of not attending school. “My mother found out eventually and she shipped me to Miami.”

Ang also credits Funkmaster Flex as the one who gave her the first shot at airtime when she was his board operator saying “he would get on the mic and he wasn’t really comfortable so he would wind up talking to me.”

The original Butter Pecan Rican also talks ultimately leaving HOT97, writing her first book and drops multiple jewels on how to advance one’s brand. A definite must watch for any fan of the culture.

You can peep the twenty minute plus interview in its’ entirity below.
