The Cash Money Records CEO revealed this during an interview with Lil Wayne on the Young Money Radio season finale on Friday, 17 July. Birdman, born Bryan Williams, said he plans to release one last farewell project before he exits the game.
The 51-year-old star expressed interest in the possibility of doing a sequel to him and Wayne's acclaimed 2006 collaborative effort titled Like Father, Like Son.
"I’m done rapping. Rapping ain't for me no more. I'm done with that. I like to make rappers. That’s what I do. I want [Like Father, Like Son 2] to be my farewell thing. I want to go out how I came in. Talking real rap."
Wayne did not hesitate and was quick to voice his approval to his mentor and friend's request. Weezy also promised to send Birdman some songs so he can add his verses to them.
