Despite a very public beef, fully equipped with slander and four letter insults, Cash Money Records CEO Birdman still found time to wish his estranged son, Lil Wayne, happy birthday. The record executive took to Instagram yesterday to acknowledge his son born day.
“HBD MY SON @liltunechi #BEFORE ANYTHANG #CMR uptownshit #BMJR #ymcmb4life #bloodlove,” Birdman wrote in the first of four posts.
Ironically, the love came a day after reports of a judge ordering Birdman to submit his financial records to the courts, after Wayne accused the CEO of spending $70 million out of a $100 million advance that was meant to be used for the Young Money Label. Birdman has been warned that he has 30 days to explain where that money was spent.
Wayne, who turned 34 on Tuesday, has been feuding with Birdman since 2014, when the New Orleans artist accused Baby of compromising the release of Weezy’s twelfth studio album “Tha Carter V”. Additionally, Wayne filed a $51 million lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money, claiming he was cheated out of advance money and royalties.
Although Wayne has been canned in his disdain for Birdman, even saying on FS1’s ‘Undisputed’ with Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless that he would never work with the CEO again, Birdman still expresses optimism concerning the two’s relationship.
“I’ma heal that. He’s still my son,” the New Orleans native said. “I don’t like how a lot of this shit went down, definitely don’t like a lot of shit he had said, but at the end of the day, I would never in my life say nothing negative about him. Even if he stay with me or go do whatever he want to do. I respect him as a son. I’ma fix it. Whatever happens after that, we gon’ let it be.”
