Lil Wayne held his fourth annual Weezyana Fest on Saturday and a surprise guest had the audience stunned by what he said.
Birdman made his way on stage and told fans that he love Weezy and issued an apology for his past shady dealings with him at Young Money/Cash Money Records and other legal disputes.
“To be home, f***ing with my son. I love that n***a to death,” the label boss said to the crowd. “I don’t know what y’all know but I know what I know and I know I live by what I know. I knew this day was gonna come but I didn’t know when it was gonna come. But this n***a right here, the realest n***a, the illest n***a and I wanted to apologize to my n***a worldwide to let him know that, you heard me, that n***a put his life in my hands and I’m gonna keep it real – we’re gonna do this s**t until the day we die. YMCMB ’til death.”
This latest statement by Birdman further confirms that he’s still doing business with Lil Wayne. Back in June, Young Money’s Jacquees also inferred that Wayne is still on the label.
“I just talked to Stunna the other day, he told me Wayne Cash Money,” he said on MTV’s TRL. “He said everything good, he said ‘I’m gonna get you Wayne on a song.’ That’s what I heard. I talked to Mack [Maine] the other day. Yeah. I mean, Mack always hit me. We’ve always had a relationship since I came to Cash Money. He always gave me advice. He always told me throughout my career Wayne rocked with me. He’s with Cash Money.”
Prior to the Jacquees interview, Wayne was reportedly seeking and securing a major payout from Birdman.
Could this all lead to new music from Lil Wayne under Cash Money? Or at least a legit release of Tha Carter V? We can only hope such is the case.
