Basically to be expected we got a whole bunch of nothing out of Birdman’s exclusive interview. The Mogul hasn’t said a peep since the $51 million dollar lawsuit against Cash Money, and all of the beef started between Weezy and Young Thug.
Angie Martinez of New York’s Power 105.1 had the opportunity to meet with Baby, also known as Bryan Williams, at his home to talk in detail of the drama and allegations surrounding the Cash Money camp. He touched on the shooting of Lil Wayne’s tour bus, and of course assured us that he had no idea about anything regarding the situation, YET the gunman called his phone right after…
Baby also spoke on the reports and videos of him pouring drinks on Wayne in the club after performing disrespectful lyrics from his remix to CoCo. Again, he “knew nothing about the incident” and made it clear that anyone disrespecting his son would be checked regardless of who they may be. Hey it is what it is, but the shake of the cup in the video after Wayne noticing him implies otherwise.
Focusing more so on Wayne being “his son,” Williams shared little to no details of Wayne’s lawsuit against him. Angie definitely asked the questions everyone has been dying to know,
- “Do you pay your artists?”
- “How is the relationship with Wayne now?”
- “Did you support Young Thug’s ‘Carter 6’ idea?”
- “Will Nicki and Drake walk if Wayne leaves?”
Pretty much everything we all want answers to right? Of course, like an old head, he gave generic responses for everything. Did I mention Wayne was his son? He did let us know that Drake and Nicki are staying with Cash Money regardless of Wayne’s decisions. Nicki and Drake have made it pretty clear that they rock with Wayne to the death, so I’d like to see how that plays out.
They also touched on similar past lawsuits against the Cash Money boss. Birdman went on to explain Tyga’s situation, and thate there was a new contract instated, the artist himself just had differences with other label mates. Angie tried to mention Cash Money’s former artist, Turk, but was quickly shot down by Birdman stating that “he’s not entertaining it.”
Overall, Birdman says no one has a problem with him and that he has a good relationship with all of his artists. He even mentions that he speaks to Wayne periodically in the midst of all of the madness. Williams gave the explanation of “People are going to think what they want, so f-ck it,” which I can agree with, especially when he clearly wasn’t there for clarification.
Word to the wise, if you’re going to sit down for an exclusive, make sure you’re telling us something we don’t already know. Family business is family business and that’s completely understandable, however, as far as the media is concerned, I’ll be taking Baby’s “word” with a grain of salt. There’s no way everything is all gravy like he wants us to believe when HIS SON is getting shot at and fingers are pointing at him.
