Birdman Apologizes to Lil Wayne at Lil Weezyana Fest
The family feud is over.
Birdman publicly apologized to Lil Wayne on stage at the fourth annual Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans on Saturday (Aug. 25). With Weezy by his side, the Cash Money boss took the mic and issued an apology in front of the crowd of thousands at Champions Square.
“I knew this day was gon’ come, but I didn’t know when it was gon’ come,” said Baby. “But this ni**a right here, the best ni**a, the realest ni**a, the illest ni**a. And I wanted to apologize to my ni**a worldwide.”
The two then embraced before Birdman pledged his loyalty to Wayne. “That ni**a put his life in my hands and I’ma keep it real with that ni**a, we gon’ do this shit till the day we die. This YMCMB for death,” he continued before performing the Big Tymers’ “Still Fly.”
The apology comes after Birdman and Lil Wayne settled their highly-publicized beef. Wayne sued Birdman and Cash Money for $51 million in 2015, seeking release from his contract. The suit was settled for an undisclosed amount in June, and the long-awaited Carter V may see a release before the end of 2018.
“We’ll get that this year,” Birdman told Rap-Up in February. “I’m guaranteeing you gon’ get it this year.”
During Saturday’s Lil Weezyana Fest, Nicki Minaj also made a surprise appearance to perform hits including “Barbie Dreams,” “FEFE,” and “Big Bank.”
