February’s celebratory Cash Money reunion in New Orleans brought together some of the label’s original sounds, faces and vibes for fans founded 26 years ago.
And while such commemoration sparked just a tidbit of hope for a reconciliation between Birdman and Lil Wayne, the Young Money apostle’s latest stage broadcast unfortunately says otherwise.
Headlining the Mass Appeal: Live At The BBQ festivities for SXSW, Weezy directly addressed his publicized tension with Baby and current career plights for fans. Backed on stage by a handful of members from his YM entourage, he confirmed that the tension with the Cash Money co-founder is still thick.
“In all honesty, I know y’all do know I am going through some bullsh** with my motherf**king career,” he said to the crowd, “and n**gas is trying to steer my career without letting me do or say a damn thing.”
Giving thanks to his vast fandom for sticking it out with him anyway, he added that he’s holding just as strong despite strain from the Young Money-Cash Money war. The concern from fans arose originally after a string of seizures and harrowing tweets from Weezy amid the strife with Baby.
“If you think that I am stressing or letting this sh** get to me, please remember: there’s too much good p**sy, and too many great motherf**kin’ loyal fans to worry about bullsh** a** Birdman,” he concluded before leading into his sentiment-complementary hit single, “No Worries.”
