If there is one thing that we all can expect from a Birdman interview, is that it is bound to go viral.
This week, the Young Money honcho stopped by the Big Facts podcast for an interview that has been making its rounds online, since its initial release. While the rapper and businessman talked about a number of topics, ranging from the infamous kiss that involved Lil Wayne, to him revealing why he didn’t end up signing Kanye West as a producer, how he apparently shoved out over $1.5 billion to his artists Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Wayne, to his now recent comments on Jay-Z and Diddy.
It’s no secret that Jay-Z, a recently confirmed billionaire and Rock & Roll of Fame Inductee, and the multi-faceted Diddy have had their hands in some of the biggest hits and business deals in the culture of hip-hop, but according to Birdman, he’s accomplished more than both Jay and Puff. Although B meant no disrespect by comments on what both Jay and Diddy have achieved, Birdman stated, “As a man, I accomplished more than all of them. And I don’t say that in a disrespectful way, I’m not trying to be disrespectful. But the reality of it is, none of these dudes accomplished more than me in the music business. Not one of them, I don’t care what name you say, accomplished more than me. That’s facts. No if, and, or buts about it.”
Standing on his confidence and his word, Birdman goes on to further explain his ups on both Diddy and HOV, as he continued explaining, “And I’ll never say anything negative about Puff. I’m not gonna deprive that he [put a lot of people on]. But I don’t think they did more than me. And you can ask him yourself, he’ll vouch for it. You can ask JAY-Z himself, he’ll vouch for it.”
