Birdman Breaks Silence on Lil Wayne Drama.

Angie Martinez, an on-air personality with the influential New York hip-hop and R&B station Power 105.1, recently spent two full days in Miami Beach with Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Baby” Williams, also known as Birdman. Cash Money executive Birdman downplayed his ongoing feud with Lil Wayne in a lengthy interview with Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez, repeatedly calling the rapper his son and denying allegations that he was involved in an April shooting against Weezy’s two tour buses. “[That’s] the craziest shit I ever heard in my life,” said the label boss, emphasizing that he didn’t hear about the incident until afterward. “Any nigga gonna bust a gun at Lil Wayne, I got a problem with that… I’d rather a nigga pop at me than pop at my child.” Both Birdman and Young Thug were named in the indictment of Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, who worked as a tour manager for Young Thug.

Speaking to Power 105.1 host Angie Martinez, who he invited to his mansion and yacht in Miami over the course of a two-day interview, the mogul said their current disputes are just “business”. “Wayne is forever my son. The State of Georgia saddled Winfrey with 30 counts, including aggravated assault, alleging he opened fire on Wayne’s bus and later attempted to hide the Camaro he was driving.

I never thought Mula [Wayne] would be saying nothing negative about me, ever. “So that man open his mouth and say something negative about me, that was a lot — that shit fucked my day up,” Birdman continued. “I love my son. Lil Wayne released a mixtape with lyrics that sniped at his former mentor, and filed a multimillion-dollar suit against the label alleging multiple breaches of contract.

What’s going on now I don’t really know how it’s going to turn out.” The pair have been embroiled in a legal battle since January, when Lil Wayne filed a $51m lawsuit against Cash Money after his much anticipated Tha Carter V album failed to be released. He then sued the label for $51 million, demanding to sever ties and be named joint copyright holder on all music released on his Young Money imprint, including material from Nicki Minaj and Drake. In his interview with Martinez, Birdman addressed the rumors that should Wayne leave, Cash Money would also lose the Young Money roster: “No,” Birdman said. “You’re just listening to what they say.” He added: “Nicki and Drake ain’t going nowhere, regardless.” Martinez’s full interview with Birdman is scheduled to air Tuesday at 4 p.m. on Power 105.1.

I would prefer him to be with me.” He also downplayed the severity of their beef: “Ninety percent of that [social media] shit is fake,” he said. “Nine-nine percent is not true. . . Amidst all the courtroom drama, Wayne and Birdman’s spat took another public turn when Weezy joined the Jay Z-helmed streaming service Tidal where he dropped a new mixtape, Free Weezy Album. But this ain’t the place or the time for that.” 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.

One day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced he was upholding Tom Brady’s four-game “Deflategate” suspension, the Patriots’ quarterback let it be known that he doesn’t intend to take a seat without a fight. In a statement posted Wednesday on his Facebook page, Brady said he was “very disappointed” with Goodell’s decision, dismissed several findings of the Wells Report and denied he played a role in – or had any knowledge of – the deflation of game balls used in the Patriots’ AFC Championship rout of the Indianapolis Colts in January. “I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either,” Brady wrote. “Despite submitting to hours of testimony over the past six months, it is disappointing that the Commissioner upheld my suspension based upon a standard that it was ‘probable’ that I was ‘generally aware’ of misconduct.

The fact is that neither I, nor any equipment person, did anything of which we have been accused.” Brady also addressed the “new evidence” Goodell mentioned when announcing his decision – the destruction of a cellphone the commissioner said contained “text messages and other electronic information” – denying that he had purposely tried to obstruct the league’s investigation or hide his role in the “Deflategate” scandal. “I disagree with yesterday’s narrative surrounding my cellphone.
