According To Mannie Fresh, Things Are Still Not 100 Between Lil Wayne And Birdman
Lil Wayne and Birdman's tumultuous friendship is reportedly still on the rocks, according to Mannie Fresh. Uproxx reports that although the two are cordial in public, Fresh said that many issues between the two, including their lawsuit against each other, still need to be sorted out.
"By sheer coincidence, I wind up bumping into Baby and I was like, 'Dude, I would love if you introed this song,'" the Cash Money producer told Genius while explaining the background of the song "Hate," the Juvenile song which he produced and the two rappers were featured on.
"He [Birdman] was like, “Send it to me, it’s done.” I can see how paperwork and foolishness can destroy something. Everything is not resolved with him and Wayne, but I overcame it by saying to them, 'We can resolve all that behind the curtain, but for now, let’s make music for the people.' When it all started coming together, the brotherly love came out. We did the song, then, “I wish you the best, we should do it more often.”
Lil Wayne and Birdman recently performed together in Miami, which got the rumor mill spinning regarding a possible reconciliation, but we see that's still not the case.
