Lil Wayne and Birdman are still embroiled in a $51 million legal battle, but it looks like the Like Father, Like Son duo is making strides in their personal relationship. Despite their ongoing court drama, the longtime collaborators were seen hugging one another at Miami’s LIV on Sunday (March 11).
Footage of the meeting and embrace popped up on social media shortly after it happened. It features Tunechi and Baby embracing in a hug while Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares (Intro)” plays in the background. They then speak to one another, though their words are inaudible over the music.
The reunion is surprising due to the fact that animosity has been brewing between these two for years. In June, Wayne told Birdman to “suck” his “dick” during an on-stage rant. The year prior, he said that Baby was “not family” despite their past father-son bond.
Wayne and Birdman had a similar nightclub meeting in 2016. Although it seemed like all would return to normal following their reunion, Tunechi would go on to diss Baby in the months that followed.
But through all of this, Stunna has maintained that the duo would repair their relationship in due time. This year, he spoke positively about Weezy during an interview with Rap-Up, where he also guaranteed that the long-awaited Tha Carter V LP would be released this year.
In October, Baby also bashed critics who talked about his relationship with Tunechi. “I be hearing all you ni**as talkin’ about this Lil Wayne shit,” he said at the time. “Lil Wayne this, Lil Wayne that. Bitch, Lil Wayne my son. I raised him. He ain’t had nothing, I brought him to be something, and got something. Bitch, you think I ain’t gonna make sure he straight? Suck a ni**a dick, bitch.”
