Rapper Birdman's Instagram hacked

Hip-hop mogul Bryan 'Birdman' Williams was targeted by hackers on Thursday (30Jul15) when his personal contact details were posted on his Instagram.com page.

The Cash Money Records boss' social networking page was compromised by cyber criminals, who shared his two cell phone numbers and email addresses with fans online in a series of posts.


The first image featured a screen shot of a notepad message, which read: "Kallme or sendme pic I luv h**s Got a little d**k either Yu withit or not. Pay yu cash cuz my checks bounces (sic)."


Another post teased, "The best is yet to come......."


The rap veteran, aka Baby, moved quickly to delete the unauthorized uploads, but not before his 1.6 million followers had caught sight of the strange notes.


The hackers struck again moments later, posting another message, which stated, "Don't be shy, just call me. I love attention." That note was also promptly removed.


Williams has yet to comment on the security breach.


The 46 year old is currently in the midst of a feud with his longtime protege, Lil Wayne, who sued Williams and his Cash Money Records associates for $51 million earlier this year (15), amid allegations he is owed royalties for his long-delayed album, Tha Carter V.


Earlier this week (begs27Jul15), Williams also denied any involvement in a shooting which targeted Wayne's tour bus following a club appearance in Atlanta, Georgia in April (15).


Williams' name was recently included in an indictment against the alleged gunman, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, who reportedly called the rap boss immediately after the shooting.


Attempting to clear his name, Williams told New York radio host Angie Martinez, "(That's) the craziest s**t I ever heard in my life. Any n**ga gonna bust a gun at Lil Wayne, I got a problem with that... I'd rather a n**ga pop at me than pop at my child (sic)."
