Birdman and Lil Wayne appeared together at Club Liv in Miami on Sunday January 18, making it clear, once and for all that they have put aside their differences.
“This my motherf*cking son and I’ma die for him. I’ma live for him and I’ll motherf*cking kill for him. That ain’t gon’ ever change, n!gga,” Birdman told the audience as Wayne stood next to him.
Baby also used the occasion to address people who have dissed him recently over the way they perceived Weezy’s contractual situation was being handled.
“All you b!tch n!ggas that be saying my name, I’ma pull up! And I ain’t gon’ pull up talking you heard me? Believe that” he said.
Two artists that Birdman could be referring to are Rick Ross and Pusha T.
Ross was highly critical of the Cash Money Records boss during a December interview with The Breakfast Club.
“Weezy my homie. I was just with Weezy the other night in the club,” Ross said. “Anything else, take it how you want it. I don’t have [a relationship] with Birdman. Me just seeing what Wayne going through as a artist. Him being a boss. Me idolizing Birdman at a time. Me looking up to Lil Wayne. Wayne being the first artist to make so many feats. Not just as a artist, but a artist coming from the South. That’s something that I took personal. So, for me to see the way things are transpiring I can’t respect that and I don’t respect that. I was as Club Liv, and me and Mack Maine was huddled up speaking. [I told him] you gon’ hear some things, and I’ve said some things and I’ma stand on that. And I mean that. You gon’ see that and let’s make it clear.” Pusha T shared similar sentiments during an interview with Mikey T The Movie Starlast month.
“If you steal something that’s just corny,” Pusha told Mikey and Clark Martin. “If you stealing something contractually, that’s like the lowest form of a thief. It’s like a cat burglar. It’s not even respectable in no way, shape or form. You ain’t even thugging it. You’re like, sneaky. I don’t respect that. I ain’t respected Baby for a long time no way, so it don’t matter.”
50 Cent told MTV last February that people shouldn’t add their two cents to the Lil Wayne and Birdman rift because of the close relationship they have.
“I just know that they have a father/son relationship. That can be something that they communicate between the two of ’em and resolve instead of having everybody else involved in it,” 50 reasoned. “Be careful of the things you say about the Wayne and Baby situation. Because Baby will forgive Wayne for the things that he’s saying. And Wayne will forgive Baby for the things that he’s saying. But that may not forgive you.”
