Birdman recently sat down with ESPN’s Cari Champion on her Be Honest podcast, and the pair talked about the Cash Money founders estranged relationship with his longtime artist Lil Wayne, who has recently been expressing his ill feelings towards his former mentor. According to Wayne the label has placed a hold on his album Tha Carter V.

“I’ma heal that. He’s still my son. I don’t like how a lot of this shit went down, definitely don’t like a lot of shit he had said, but at the end of the day, I would never in my life say nothing negative about him,” Birdman states in the interview. “I wouldn’t be a man if I can say somebody is my son, and I can speak down on him. That’s not a man. I look at him as my son and I won’t finish the game without Wayne. Even if he stay with me or go do whatever he want to do. I respect him as a son. I’ma fix it. Whatever happens after that, we gon’ let it be.”

Earlier this summer, Wayne was seen wearing a hat that read “Fuck Cash Money.

“It’s something I’m gonna do,” Birdman says of repairing their relationship. “A lot of shit going on. And we definitely talking, as far as his end and my end. That’s a goal for me in this game. I said I wanted to finish the game when I started and Wayne’s somebody I really would like to finish the game with, even if we finish with respect of him still being my son. That mean more to me than the money and the music. I don’t give a fuck about none of that, I care more about our relationship and that’s what I want to heal.”
