Birdman On His Relationship With Wayne: “Wayne Forever My Son, That’s Not Going To Change”
Despite the legal woes, alleged drinks being thrown and indictments handed down, Birdman says he still has love for Lil Wayne.
“What’s going on now, I don’t really know how it’s going to turn out,” Birdman said. “But that’s my son, and I’m going to support whatever he do.”
In part one of an interview with Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez, Birdman sits down with the seasoned radio personality aboard his yacht in Miami, and she asks how one of hip-hop’s most formidable record labels became a hot mess.
“A lot of our misunderstanding is because our business got so big and everyone got in our business,” he said. “It’s not just me and him. It’s all these other mother f***ers in the business.”
Birdman alleges that he spoke to Wayne two days prior to the interview and says their relationship isn’t so contentious.
“The media makes it worst than what it really is. Me and my son don’t scream at each other. I’m a man. He respects me as his pops and I respect him as my son. There ain’t never come a day where he’s going to talk to me in a disrespectful manner. We didn’t come from that cloth.”
