Background

The album was originally going to be called Pricele$$ 2, as the sequel to his previous studio album Pricele$$, however, later Birdman changed the name to Bigga Than Life. On August 13, 2010 a YouTube video called "Birdman's Bigger Than Life Photo Shoot" was uploaded.[2] The video shows Birdman having a photoshoot using multiple studios. The CD version of Lil Wayne's album Tha Carter IV includes a flyer confirming the album's name and date of release. Birdman released a mixtape in March called Bigger Than Life, featuring the 2010 Kevin Rudolf song "I Made It (Cash Money Heroes)", also featuring Jay Sean and Lil Wayne from Rudolf's studio album To the Sky, and the Gucci Mane's song "Mouth Full of Golds", from his independent album The Return of Mr. Zone 6. Birdman is on both of these tracks. The mixtape also has a guest appearance by rapper Game.[3]
