Fresh off the release of his new video for “Ms. Gladys,” Cash Money’s Birdman announced on Instagram tonight that he will be releasing a new album this June. The project, titled Ms. Gladys, will be the rapper’s first solo album since 2009’s Priceless. He has, however, released two mixtapes in addition to the Rich Gang projects in conjunction with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. Ms. Gladys is the name of his deceased mother, whom he honored in the video for the album’s lead single.
It’s been a tumultuous time for Birdman, who’s been dealing with a massive lawsuit from Lil Wayne and saw the breakup of Cash Money’s breakout Rich Gang last year. At this point, it’s hard to know what exactly to expect from his new music. However, with his Wayne feud seemingly simmering down and his ready access to a cadre of big-name guest stars, it’s certainly possible that Ms. Gladys could be something of a comeback moment for him. We’ll have to wait until June to find out.
