Birdman discussed his controversial interview with Charlamagne and The Breakfast club as he sat down with Ebro and his team today on Hot97. He maintains Charlamagne continued to taunt him for years and he’d had enough. He also discussed his problems with Trick Daddy and falling out with Rick Ross, who he considers a brother.
All Birdman needed was Charlamagne to simply to respect him nothing more. Here are quotes from his interview:
I think for a few years he’s just been slandering my name, not respecting me. To me as a man, it was deeper than music, so I just wanted to go up there and see what’s happening. Put some respect on my name…I can understand a man with his opinion, and that’s respectable. But I feel when you’re going off the record and taunting me for years, I feel as a man I’m going to make sure that man respects me as a man. There’s no other way about that.
Well clearly Charlamagne and Birdman are not exactly friends right now, but how does he feel about Rick Ross?
Me and Ross were like brothers, everyday hanging together. One of the reasons we came to Miami is because them n-ggas embraced us. I don’t know what his call was to even get in me and my son’s business, so whatever business me and him have, that’s my son. That sh*t’s gonna work itself out. I have the utmost respect for Ross. I taught him a lot of game in this sh*t. He watched my pimping, and he went and did his own thing with it. It threw me off… I ain’t spoke to him or seen him. If we speak, we speak. I can go the rest of my life not speaking to nobody. I don’t give a f*ck about that.
Ok then, how about Trick Daddy, Birman. Any chance of mending that particular broken relationship?
I’m a straight gangsta. That n*gga been in my hood. He knows what’s happening with me. I guess a n*gga get on the radio and wanna be funny or something. That n*gga knows what’s happening with me. Google me. Call anything in the 504, ask about me, and watch what comes up. A straight G. I’m just a hustler. I’m a mastermind…Ross and Trick, they had their opinion. They said that sh-t one time. You ain’t gonna keep hearing that sh-t. That n*gga on the radio station, he’s been playing with me for three, four years. He’s constantly playing with my name. Find you somebody to play with. That’s all I’m saying.
While it would be great if Birdman learned to forgive and move on, it doesn’t look like ti will be happening any time soon.
