Lil Wayne and Birdman’s embrace at LIV Nightclub over the weekend surprised many of their fans, but sources say that it was just an extension of a months-long plan to make peace.
Insiders confirm that the Like Father, Like Son duo has been working to repair their relationship, separate from their ongoing $51 million lawsuit, for months now. “They’re family and that’s bigger than money,” one source told TMZ.
Although they’ve had several conversations, the longtime collaborators have not completely returned to the glory of their former bond. Still, insiders say that a reconciliation is in the works.
Their nightclub embrace over the weekend was not planned, according to the report. After they were both announced, Birdman’s son Bryan Williams Jr. greeted Weezy. Then, Wayne came by Baby’s table for the embrace.
Despite Wayne’s constant disses, Birdman has maintained that the two would eventually work out their differences. In October, Stunna explained what would become of the feud.
“Lil Wayne my son,” he said. “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.”
It’s unclear how this may effect Weezy’s music. Due to their ongoing legal battle, Tunechi has opted not to release Tha Carter V, but Birdman recently guaranteed that the highly-anticipated album would be released this year during an interview with Rap-Up.
