Birdman Denies Lil Wayne Shooting Involvement

Cash Money exec Birdman downplayed his ongoing feud with Lil Wayne, repeatedly calling the rapper his son and denying allegations that he was involved in an April shooting against Weezy's two tour buses. "[That's] the craziest [thing] I ever heard in my life," said the label boss, emphasizing that he didn't hear about the incident until afterward. "Anyone gonna bust a gun at Lil Wayne, I got a problem with that... I'd rather [someone] pop at me than pop at my child."
Both Birdman and Young Thug were named in the indictment of Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, who worked as a tour manager for Young Thug. The State of Georgia saddled Winfrey with 30 counts, including aggravated assault, alleging he opened fire on Wayne's bus and later attempted to hide the Camaro he was driving. Neither Birdman nor Young Thug are facing any charges.
