R-E-S-P-E-K. Capitalizing on his controversial “Breakfast Club” interview, Birdman has released the full version of his new single.
Unveiled by Funkmaster Flex, “Respek” finds the Cash Money chief revisiting the famous slogans he used during the infamous interview, which he walked out on. “Tell them ni**as to respek my name,” he says at one point. “Or keep it out of their fuckin’ mouth.”
It isn’t all about the controversy, however. The mogul also takes time to say “rest in peace” to his mother, who he named his album Ms. Gladys after. That project is set to drop June 24 followed by Rich Gang’s Rich Gang 2: The Lifestyle on July 1.
Prior to dropping the track, Birdman also opened up about sexuality rumors, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross during an interview with Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning.”
