According to new reports, Birdman is under investigation for supposedly planning to shoot up Lil Wayne’s tour bus! The news is even more shocking as he called him his ‘son’ before!
The 49-year-old is suspected of having been behind the rapper’s tour bus shooting back in 2015.
TMZ was the first publication to share this piece of news, shocking many.
The outlet claims The Cobb County, Georgia DA has confirmed Birdman is currently being investigated to determine whether or not he was really the mastermind behind the attack.
But he is not the only one as it is being reported that another rapper, Young Thug, 27, is also under investigation for the same crime.
The shooter at the time, Carlton Winfrey, was sentenced to spend 20 years behind bars.
Even though it seems like nowadays Birdman and Lil Wayne are relatively peaceful towards one another, in 2015, they were indeed feuding.
As fans know, it was Birdman who discovered and helped the other rapper reach fame and recognition but at some point, they had a fallout, reportedly over money but also the delay of his album, Tha Carter V’s release.
The long-awaited album was actually released earlier today!
Thankfully, during the shooting, nobody was injured, but the police were obviously called, and the shooter later pled ‘guilty.’
The beef between Birdman and Lil Wayne continued in court over the years as well as through diss tracks released by both parties.
This is not the first time Birdman is accused of being behind the shooting.
However, during an interview with radio host Angie Martinez in 2015, he denied it.
‘Wayne is my son no matter what. That ain’t never gonna change,’ he insisted.
