Lil Wayne’s relationship with his mentor Birdman isn’t going too well lately, but the 47-year-old producer and rapper is decided to support Weezy’s projects!
Recently invited on Travi$ Scott’s Beats 1 .wav radio, Birdman, whose real name is Bryan Williams, answered a very difficult question: What’s going on with Lil Wayne’s latest album, “Carter V”? The producer said that he hopes they can put all the drama behind and there’s no doubt that the album will be on the market as soon as Lil Wayne gives the green light.
Surprisingly, he also praised his “son”, claiming that Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. is one of the best in this game, a true legend, and that he’s got his back, no matter what he wants to do.
There was a strong bond between Lil Wayne and Birdman, but a multi-million dollar lawsuit with Cash Money affected their relationship, in a negative way. A reconciliation seemed possible back in November 2016, but the talks were interrupted shortly after.
On Tuesday, the 34-year-old rapper posted a message on Facebook, somehow giving details about this future plans. “CV. Funeral. D6. Young Money,” meaning that the new Carter, the next entry in the Dedications series, will possibly be his last album.
Lil Wayne spoke about retirement in 2011, when he said that he’ll put the mic down at 35, determined to dedicate more time to his kids. Well, it seems that his time to call it quits is getting closer, but we have a feeling that he’s going to be around for at least a few more years…
After being abandoned by his biological father, at the age of 2, and his stepfather, Rabbit, died before he became a star, Birdman was seen as a parental figure by Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. Now, Lil Wayne said in a recent interview that he’s all done with Cash Money and it’s also over between him and Birdman. “His last name isn’t Carter, baby. He’s not family.”
