Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Baby” Williams previously spoke on Lil Wayne‘s decision to ignore past diss records from 50 Cent and his artist’s main focus.
In some newly released footage, which was likely recorded around summer 2008, Baby addressed Wayne’s attention on generating profits and avoiding outside controversy.
“We got money man,” Baby explained. “We on islands and jets f*cking h*es. We ain’t trippin’ off petty sh*t. We got money. Ain’t ever a dark day in my life, why won’t I go spend 250 right now, I’ll burn that b*tch…We just did a deal for a 100 mil, we got money for real. It ain’t no game. We ain’t got time for bullsh*t. We getting money man. We go to the studio that’s money, that’s like $20 million. When I hit your town they pay 250 just to say they saw us…We been through the wars, I got scars from wars. Get with that anytime, but lets get with this money sh*t, that’s what’s up…Me and my son are rich for real, that’s why I won’t entertain bullsh*t…Today, I’m the only n*gga in the industry, me, my son and my brother that own everything, nobody owns nothin’. We 100 percent in this b*tch, we make more than they make.” (SmackTube)
Along with making disses towards Weezy in a past King Magazine interview and his song “Part Time Lover” both around 2007, Fif called out the rapper in the song “Try Me” earlier this year.
“Fat f*ck playing Wii Fit Nintendo/Have another tattoo, here’s another tattoo,” 50 rapped referring to Rick Ross. “Run into my goons soon, have a new bullet wound/Officer Ricky, radio for backup/See ya a** anyway, you know I’m gon’ act up/You wanna play with me when I don’t wanna play/Have my n*ggas whip the skin off ya a** all day…This n*gga’s an appetizer. Where you at Wayne? You the full course meal, Wayne. You awfully quiet.” (“Try Me”)
Baby has expressed his close relationship with Wayne and recently justified their “mafia” kiss from 2006.
“That’s my son, ya heard me,” he explained in an interview. “If he was right here, I’d kiss him again. I kiss my daughter, my other son, I mean, you have children? Well, if you did you’d understand what I meant with it. I just think people took that too far man. That’s my son. I’ll do it again tomorrow, I’ll kill for him. Ride and die for him.” (Tim Westwood TV)
In addition to working with Wayne on music, the duo reportedly have a film coming out together this summer.
“Me and Wayne just finished this movie, Like Father, Like Son, that’s coming out in June and the album coming out at the same time,” Baby said in an interview. “That’s what we do. Just me being myself. I just wanted to, it’s something we wanted to fund. It’s ours…So, it’s really what it is, like father, like son,” Baby added. “Normal day growing up in New Orleans, you know. Hood rich.” (Power 105.1)
