Birdman’s beef with Druski, which many suspect is a bit, has escalated as the Cash Money boss and his people mobbed his on-screen rival and stole his bling.
Coulda Been Records is a parody imprint of the Hip Hop mogul’s empire started by the Maryland comedian, who has been in the hot seat ever since Baby caught wind of his antics.
On Friday (November 10), Birdman shared a picture of him holding a chain with the Coulda Been logo. In the caption, he wrote: “SURPRISE PARTY B*TCH/ SLIPPIN IN STUDIO/ RICHGANG.”
On Saturday (November 11), TMZ published CCTV footage of Stunna and two other people pulling up on the funnyman inside a studio and subsequently engaging in what the outlet called a “minor scuffle.” As the confrontation turned physical, Druski and his crew were caught on camera running away.

Last month, Druski addressed the tension between him and the New Orleans native. During an interview with Forbes, the social media superstar was a bit tight-lipped when it came to the war-of-words that has transpired between them over the past few months.
“Hey man, y’all just gotta keep watching,” Druski told Rosemarie Miller. “You see I gotta peek behind my back. We here, man. When your idols turn to rivals, that’s what they say. I ain’t saying too much. That’s all I’mma say.”
The two have been going back and forth since the summer, and it still isn’t clear if the whole thing is staged or not. In July, Druski went live on Instagram as the shady, cigar-smoking CEO to scout new talent. The highlight of the night, however, came towards the end of the broadcast when Birdman swung through and confronted Druski for stepping on Cash Money’s toes.
“I’ve been looking for you, n-gga,” the businessman said ominously as he joined the call. “I heard you was in my neck of the woods. I ain’t think it would’ve been gangsta if I pulled up on you … but you won’t come outside or inside, n-gga.”
He added: “It’s like you starting to step on my toes. You young n-ggas really got the game fucked up. I am that n-gga, n-gga! I’ve been watching this shit you doing. What the fuck is this record label you starting?”
Visibly ruffled, Druski then apologized to Birdman, except the latter wasn’t having it. Unimpressed, he replied: “Put some respek on my name, bro. Coulda Been Records? That shit sound like CMB, man! … I like what you doing, but I don’t like what you doing ’cause you fucking with fire, you fucking with real gangsta shit.”
