“It’s about him right now. I got to deal with a situation I’ve never had to deal with in my life. It ain’t cool with me, but we have to live through it.”
Cash Money seems to be one of the last major labels still around even with the absence of former popular members Mannie Fresh and Juvenile. With Lil Wayne facing a possible year sentence there are questions of the future of Young Money.
Birdman recently spoke with the Associated Press about his latest album Priceless and advice that he has for his son Lil Wayne before he serves his time.
“To keep doing what he loves – music. That’s the only thing we’ve got. You take that away from us, we really don’t need to live. Music, that’s the only thing that gets the stress off your mind to make you feel better. It’s how good it sounds after you’ve done it. The enjoyment of it.”
Birdman says there won’t be a drought of music from Wayne while he’s away. “Of course. I don’t know how many. It’s up to him. It’s his world. My son is his own boss. Whatever he wants to do, we’ll back him up.”
Birdman compared their label to other labels on success. “Now I don’t see any top labels. I look around and see all those people who did it before me. To me, the labels, I don’t see no company with constant success with a clique. At some point, there was a lot of people doing this. It used to be crowded. I see a lot of people who have don’t it, and now don’t see them.”
