While speaking at Brooklyn Law School, Slim revealed that he was already working on a screenplay. "There’s a lot of things that people don’t know that we went through, things that happened behind the scenes of the company, things that happened before we were with Universal. So we got a lot of stories, but the way I’m putting it together is gonna be great."

The two continued by acknowledging that Straight Outta Compton paved the way for them to make a biopic about Cash Money. "For them to do that [movie] and to make it trend-setting, they opened doors for us, and I think that what we have is way more special because we’re in modern times," Baby said.

Birdman also told the moderator, "Can I tell you something my brother told me? He said everything we’ve ever did – and I got 20 plus years selling records – nothing we ever did is worth more than that script. I’m excited about the script. That’s something I really want to do."
