Tensions haven’t eased in the ongoing Birdman and Lil Wayne feud and it does not seem like it’ll be going away anytime soon. While many fans and hip-hop artists have come to Wayne’s defense in the years-long skirmish, Birdman hasn’t said much about the situation… until now. Fed up with naysayers passing off their opinions, Birdman took to social media to sound off on his critics who say that he has to pay his “son” the money he’s owed.
“I be hearing all you ni**as talking about this Lil Wayne sh-t. Lil Wayne this, Lil Wayne that,” he said during his rant. “B–ch, Lil Wayne my son. I raised him. He ain’t had nothing, I brought him to be something and got something. B–ch, you think I ain’t gonna make sure he straight?”
The Cash Money CEO warned that he’s “a real mastermind” and threatened that the individuals getting involved “don’t wanna see no murder.” He continued to unleash his anger throughout the 11-minute, profanity-laden rant, and bragged that no one “can outdo me, can’t beat me, ain’t gon’ f–k with me.”
While Birdman did not address a particular person, Rick Ross caught wind of Birdman’s rant and defended Wayne. “Boy, You a year late and five years late paying that man his money. Pay that man his money, we all know you ain’t right,” Ross said in the clip. “Stop with the jokes. Bring that sh-t. Bring it.” The Maybach Music head honcho later headed out on his balcony to soak in the warm weather and continue addressing Birdman.
“That’s what’s so beautiful about life — it ain’t no ceilings. You go as far as you want to go, have no fear,” he added. “All that talking sh-t, that sh-t do not work around here Baby. I’ll put you in check, I’ll put you somewhere else.”
This is not Ross’ first time defending Wayne. Earlier this year, the “Lamborghini Doors” rapper weighed in on the problem between Birdman and Wayne within an interview with Billboard after the release of his latest album Rather You Than Me featuring the Birdman diss track “Idols Become Rivals.”
“You know, I just think it’s so f–ked up. Us seeing Lil Wayne’s [situation] and suffering from that, I think we kind of all got used to it,” he told Billboard about the $51 million lawsuit Weezy filed in 2014 against Birdman and Cash Money which alleges he’s owed $10 million for an advance on the long-delayed Tha Carter Valbum, as well as additional royalties. “I think the culture has f–king accepted that Wayne would not put out another album. And that’s not the way the game [should be]. That’s not the way we designed this. That’s not the way this is supposed to be.”
