Birdman stopped by LA’s Power 106 radio station for a quick interview this week, where he was inevitably questioned about the war brewing between Drake and Common, and the Cash Money CEO didn’t hesitate to respond. “Drake the homie so we ride or die, ain’t no second questions about that, but we’ve never been a brand to make records and want to make money off of making records off other people, that’s not what we bout,” he said. “So to me, however the young homie deal with it, we behind him, we supporting him 100 percent with our life, so that’s just what it is.”
“Ain’t no other way, Drake the lil homie, that’s blood, that’s blood that’s family and ain’t not siding with that,” he continued. “It’s drake or nothing.”
Despite having Drake’s back, Birdman reiterated that the YMCMB family has never attempted to prosper off of rap beefs. “We don’t do all that, we never did that, never was about making money off of making music off of diss records, that’s not how we operate,” he said. “When you get caught up in that, to me you forget what it’s about, and it’s about the people and that’s what we do. We do our music for the people. We’ve never been a brand to do diss records and try to make money, that’s not us.”
“But Drake the homie and we support him fully and whatever he bout, we bout, and however that turn out that’s just what it is.”
In other words, don’t expect any shots from Lil Wayne directed at Common.
