Birdman was asked about the viral photo and videos of him kissing Lil Wayne on the lips that have became a widely discussed topic in hip-hop. During an interview with Revolt’s “Big Facts Podcast,” Birdman attributed the affectionate gesture to their close father-son relationship. At the time, he feared he may not live to see another day.
“I always looked at Wayne as my son…’cause I was in the streets and I thought this might be the last time they ever see me, ’cause I was living like that,” he said. “That’s where that shit really started from. I thought that, every night I leave, I might not never come back.”
