Cash Money boss Birdman has updated fans on his status with estranged protégé Lil Wayne and explained why he does not put his personal matters on social media.
In Birdman’s perspective, using social media to speak out or even defend his image is pointless.
“I’m in it and I know what it is. And one thing about the social media is you can’t correct it. You gotta let it be what it be. It doesn’t even make no sense to even make a comment. It don’t make no sense. People are going to believe what they read so you gotta really know how to rock with that, know how to fall back and when to fall off. That’s how I like at it. [Social media?] I ain’t on it like that.” (Big Boy’s Neighborhood)

A few weeks ago, footage surfaced of Wayne going off on his record label and Baby.
“Before I go any further, I want y’all to know I got two new albums coming y’all way. Real quick, let me hear you say, ‘F*ck the bullsh*t.’ Say ‘F*ck the world.’ Say ‘F*ck the Birdman.’ And ‘F*ck Cash Money.’ … I’m going through a lot of bullsh*t right now. These n*ggas got me in bars right now, they don’t want to see me make good music. I don’t know what the f*ck’s going on, but f*ck them n*ggas and I just want you to know, if anything – if you thought for any second I gave a f*ck about it I can’t because I got people like y’all that still support me.”
