Birdman Talks Lil Wayne Launching Young Money, Confirms Tha Carter 5 Will Drop This Year

Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams recently chopped it up with Billboard for an interview.

During their conversation, Baby confirmed Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V album will be released this year and spoke on how Wayne launching his Young Money record label helped strengthen Cash Money Records.

You can read what Birdman said after the jump below. Click here to see what Baby and Slim had to say about Nicki Minaj and Drake!

Let’s get to this right away: How are things with Lil Wayne now?
Birdman: Carter V coming out this year, man. Wayne my son, and it’s just that simple. Carter V definitely coming out, though.

Lil Wayne launched the Young Money imprint in 2005. How did that reinvigorate Cash Money?
Birdman: Cash Money had a run; it was a legacy and a brand. I wanted Wayne to do his thing and get Young Money younger talent. Let him guide and I’ll follow his lead. And Nicki came in to play, Drake came in to play, and it was just a perfect situation.

    Birdman lies and we all know it

  • JTLivinRight

    I actually believe him….C5 just may come out this year. Wayne better play his cards right and not switch up, and once it goes steady, perhaps he’ll get his money.

    • #1Stunna

      lol why you keep actin like it’s wayne’s fault for not getting his money. this situation is 100% birdbitches fault

      • Torianbadass

        Right this wouldn’t happen if he just paid him

      • JTLivinRight

        I know full well it ain’t Wayne’s fault! I’m saying at this point the sad truth is Birdman will only allow Wayne to get his money if Wayne reconciles with him….which is gay and fucked up, but its like the only shot…ONLY.

      • WhatUp5

        Wayne didnt produce the sales they expected, so hes not getting paid what he expected.

        • #1Stunna

          Not at all.

    • Why would you believe him .

      • Torianbadass

        Maybe birdman is right I think he is that’s just my opinion

    • πŸ’°πŸ€˜πŸΎMula Gang πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ’°

      Nope stop βœ‹

    • Raz!

      youre still a fag for your comment yesterday

      • JTLivinRight

        You’re gay for letting it resonate on your mind up to today. Ain’t nobody told ya sweet ass to bring that shit up…but here we are

  • Giraffe Boy

    “wayne my son” lol he says this every interview

  • Torianbadass

    When that C5 come out I’m bumping it and BBQ

  • πŸ’°πŸ€˜πŸΎMula Gang πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ’°

    Yaya

  • Raz!

    baby has been saying it’s “coming this year” since 2014

  • ⚜️BATMANπŸ›‘

    Ya niggas that got hope for C5 remember Wayne has the masters. Birdman doesn’t have the money to pay Wayne. Therefore C5 will not come out through cash money, maybe the Roc.

  • BRLA Life

    MARK MY WORDS: BIRDMAN WILL SET UP WAYNE THIS YEAR AND KILL HIM THEN HE WILL RELEASE CARTER 5 UNDER CASH MONEY RECORDS AND IT WILL SELL 3 MILLION FIRST WEEK!!!!

    • WeezyFBaby

      Shut ur fat ass up

      • BRLA Life

        Dont be mad at me be mad at Birdman, he got waynes tour bus shot up 2 years ago. Hes been plotting on his “Son”

        • WeezyFBaby

          Idc about anything you said just letting you know ur fat

          • BRLA Life

            fake ass nigga

        • JTLivinRight

          I’ll actually agree with you. These niggas too pussy to actually consider this real possibility. I said the same thing but the bitch niggas got mad cuz it’s possible. Look at that one dude who got his shit cleaned in Hollygrove and somehow Birdman cleared his IG off the dude. Smfh

          • 1017BLOOD

            He wasnt from Hollygrove

            • Mula EL

              He got killed in hollygrove tho but y’all niggas that’s not from the N.O need to stop speaking on shit y’all don’t know about

              • Tuned #BWA #POP

                Who man is this

        • Zay

    • TRUKFIT

    • Stop smoking mid bro

    • Zay

      Dont say stupid shit like that bro

      • dharma

        While it’s stupid Wayne dying is the only way i see him sell 3M first week.

        • Zay

          Sales for a life man?..

          Really bro.
          Niggas already kill each other for money.

          I dont give a shit about sales.

        • Zay

          If it’s good music it’s good music

          FUCK SALES man

    • SUPA M

      3million?! Impossible 1million max

    • realone504

      Well damn nigga lol that shit don’t do nothing in the long run

  • WeezyFBaby

    He’s said this like twice last year and twice now this year. It’s not coming.

  • YellowTablet

    • TRUKFIT

      LOL

  • TRUKFIT

    C5 IS A MYTH ITS THE NW DETOX

  • He might be right this time

    • πŸ’°πŸ€˜πŸΎMula Gang πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ’°

      Ehh I doubt it bro they always do this they will be on speaking terms one minute and the next minute they call off negotiations πŸ™„βœ‹οΈ It Never fails

      • That’s tru but idk cause Wayne turning 35 this year & I think he’s really finna retire so something gotta happen.

      • dharma

        Birdman has said in the past that C5 was coming out but Wayne didn’t. I’m sure they’re making progress and we’re getting closer to its release.

        • Tuned #BWA #POP

          This

        • πŸ’°πŸ€˜πŸΎMula Gang πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ’°

          hahahahahaha

    • Tuned #BWA #POP

      Maybe, Wayne be asking is niggas ready for CV and Tez said they real close. But then again don’t get too hyped

  • Tuned #BWA #POP

    Scrape it out the pot and still cooking

  • Tuned #BWA #POP

    πŸ€” so y’all think CV gone drop before D6 and funeral

    • #1Stunna

      Idk, if they want to drop CV the right way. They need GOOD project to come pit first for hype…they should do an ep or something.

      • Tuned #BWA #POP

        Redrop FWA

        • #1Stunna

          Tru, but replace “I’m that nigga” with street chains

          • Tuned #BWA #POP

            yeah just make street chains the final track, Fwa too slept on

            • #1Stunna

              It’s a shame they put it on tidal, should’ve just put it out as a mixtape on datpiff

              • Tuned #BWA #POP

                Fr cause it’s a dope project and nobody really is on Tidal at least not like Apple Music

        • JTLivinRight

          Nigga, no. All wayne needs is to drop D6 and then shortly after, one single from C5

          • Tuned #BWA #POP

            Boy be quiet, FWA is a great project that didn’t get enough attention. Deserves more listens

            • JTLivinRight

              I know the project was great, I just want him remaking the wheel

    • πŸ’°πŸ€˜πŸΎMula Gang πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ’°

      Ain’t shit coming bro

      • Tuned #BWA #POP

        Been telling you this

    • JTLivinRight

      I feel like D6 is made already. But as for Funeral…I feel like that was bullshit.

  • TooReal

    The lies

  • #1Stunna

    If CV drops through roc (I don’t think it will) they will put it Exclusive to tidal for 1 week and fuck the sales up.

    • That was gonna be the plan all along…first it was they Google Play

      • #1Stunna

        Yeah, but google play would have benefits, such as more sales. Tidal will ultimately hurt CV.

  • T-Chubbs

    Knt believe anything birdman says. For one it’s really not up to him if it comes out or not…Wayne holding CV hostage til he gets that bag. So fukk all this interview shyt…if u a tru fan you would want yo fav artist to b kompensated for his/her work. It’s join tho…hell juz dnt knw when smh

    • T-Chubbs

      It’s bomin tho

  • G.O.A.T worshipper

    😑😑😑 This bitch is killing Tunes career. I can see that now! Ppl are starting to not care about C5 anymore πŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎ fucking birdman 😑

  • Dr Carter

    Birdman is killin me ahaha

  • If they make C5 an Apple Music exclusive tho….Wayne doing numbers

    • Tuned #BWA #POP

      Hov need to sell Tidal to Apple

    • Weezy504

      I don’t have an iPhone

  • Tauheed Epps

    Fuck this bitch ass bird and his stupid label

  • Tauheed Epps

    anyone else find it funny that the vote/survey thing shows 7 projects and this nigga ain’t released anything from any of them??

  • Hel Pepper

    To everyone saying Wayne is going to die, it’s not possible because he’s already dead inside. We as fans should support Wayne no matter what decision he make, thats what a real fan do.

    • Weezy504

      Yeah from all that lean

    • JTLivinRight

      Also true, sad, but yeah…

  • Free Ma$e

    I don’t believe Birdman and I don’t believe Wayne…That’s my nigga and I love my niggas music but both these niggas be misleading as hell and say shit just to get attention. Like that “it’s the ROC” shit! Had errbody buzzin like is he joining HOV?! Knowing damn well he ain’t released from Cashmoney/Universal yet…My point is Wayne be full of shit too!!!

    • JTLivinRight

      Welp, can’t disagree with this man for this one.

    • Cash money/young money are expert liars lol

      • πŸ’°πŸ€˜πŸΎMula Gang πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ’°

        They ain’t even experts cause they get caught every time πŸ˜‚ then act like nun didn’t happen

    • tunechifuckinli

      Ur full of shit go fuck urself

      • Free Ma$e

        I’m full of shit? No, it sounds like your mouth is full of dick fuckboy! Get that mans dick out your mouth and observe the situation. When has Wayne said “anything” and it was actually 100% believable? This is the same nigga that said racism doesn’t exist and that he’s never witnessed it!!! He’s full of shit a lot of times. You can be a fan of the music and not necessarily the person. Most of y’all niggas got blinders on. This Baby and Wayne beef is all staged I think…

  • Ima different Weezy & im drippin Fiji in the Lamborghini got the seats wet

  • Weezy

    Birdman says alot of shit

  • Davonsticks

    Everyone knows Birdman just lying after will call wayne and tell him “I just lied to your fans fuckboy. I ain’t releasing shit”

  • tunechifuckinli

    All of y’all are fuckin stupid shut the fuck up with ur complaining asses go talk shit about Wayne off his fan site not on it u fuckin bitches yall make real Wayne fans look bad go listen to lil yachty or one of them other faggot rappers that doesn’t rap about shit but yet their so fuckin famous for nothin all u haters go suck a fuckin dick and shut y’all’s stupid asses up fags

  • Fyneface Serekara

    Birdman is sounding very friendly and it’s a good thing. Kudos to Lil Wayne…
