The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
The Birdman has never made an official solo mixtape before. Now, he has decided to put out two.
Earlier this week, he told KarenCivil.com that he and Mack Maine are dropping a street CD called White Boys, and the #1 Stunna told us of another batch of free music: Baby and DJ Scoob Doo are releasing a Godfather mixtape and accompanying DVD.
"My first tape, I'm doing with Scoob," Birdman explained. "Godfather and the DVD. Scoob is our partner. I really like what he did with Wayne, the 'Nino [Brown' DVD series]. I felt like he should trend-set it. Do it with everybody. Me, Drake. I think it shows a different part, what people never get to see, because Scoob gets the exclusive. Everyday life, just life, how we breathe, eat. It's nothing we're scripting out. Just turn the camera on. The mixtape, I was like, 'Come on, Scoob, let's do it.' I never did one. I always wanted to do one. With Junior being gone, I just wanted to represent my son. We just go hard and go in."
Birdman and Wayne are already part of Scoob's new "Entourage" reality DVD. And yes, there is enough footage left over a sequel.
" 'Entourage,' it's back to Scoob. That's our partner. When he come around, he get the real sh--," Baby revealed. " 'Entourage' is no actors. Real sh-- we do every day. I told Scoob we should do more of that sh--. We got 'Entourage 4' we're working on now. You gonna always see us affiliated with DJ Scoob Doo.
"[With 'Nino'], I enjoy just the whole play, watching my son's last few days before he go to jail," he added about the "Nino Brown" DVDs. "That sh-- priceless. It's real what he was doing. Now that it's almost over, we can sit back and watch. But it seems like yesterday. It was all workload. Workload and work mode. 'Let's shoot some videos, Stunna, let me record, let's make sure everybody got what they need, because I'mma be gone for a year.' All due respect for the grind mode. Scoob was there for all that."
The Birdman said once Wayne gets out of jail, he'll go back to work on Tha Carter IV and he and his son will also drop a part two to 2006's Like Father, Like Son.
"The Like Father, Like Son album, it's gonna come out next year," Birdman said. "We gonna do them all the time."
