Birdman Talks ‘Respek’ And Lil Wayne Gay Rumors In New Hot 97 Interview [Video]
Birdman has a gold AK-47 in his home that actually works. It’s not an art piece, but a real “piece” that could do damage. It’s also legal, Birdman made sure to clarify.
That’s one of the facts discussed in the new video interview with Birdman, also known as “Baby” or “Stunna” or by his real name, Bryan Williams. Birdman had plenty to say to Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning crew after having an angry non-interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1, as reported by the Inquisitr.
Uploaded to YouTube on May 2, the interview with Birdman and the Hot 97 folks has gotten more than 800,000 views in one day. Birdman talked about the way he pronounced the word “respect” and how it caused a bunch of memes to show up on social media in the wake of Birdman telling the Power 105.1 crew to put some respect on his name.
“Ebro and Laura were in Miami so they decided to get up with Birdman to see what Respek is to him.”
Warning: The following video of Birdman on Ebro in the Morning contains language that might be offensive to some viewers.
On Instagram, the hashtag #respeck has 38,691 posts, while the Twitter hashtag #respek has 64,656 posts. Therefore, more people are using the “respek” spelling without the letter C to stand for the pronunciation that Birdman used for the word respect. Birdman said that he knew folks were making fun of the way he spoke and recalled how when he first became famous with his crew out of New Orleans, no one knew what they were talking about because of their dialect.
Instead, Birdman educated the nation on terms like “stunna,” which sounds similar to “stunner” and means someone who looks great and has a lot of positive or stunning things going on in their life and with their fashionable clothes and cars. Mainly, Birdman was chomping at the bit to explain why he was so mad at the Power 105.1 Breakfast Club crew.
In the video named “Birdman Goes Off On The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 (04/22/2016),” Birdman could be seen not giving much of an interview but mainly telling the Breakfast Club crew to respect him.

Overall, Birdman said he felt disrespected, claiming Charlamagne Tha God spoke about Birdman often in ways that Birdman didn’t like. With the Hot 97 crew, however, Birdman was eager to talk about everything from Lil Wayne to Nicki Minaj and more.
Birdman addressed any gay rumors surrounding him as nonsense and urged folks to Google him to see what he was really all about. Birdman was also eager to discuss how Drake recently sold 400,000 or more albums in an hour when the album Views became available for sale.
Beyond those topics, Birdman repeatedly stressed the need for CEOs in hip-hop. Birdman said that too many business-minded folks also want to rap. Instead, Birdman believes that some people should concentrate on running the hip-hop companies instead of jumping on every track — especially if they can’t rap.

Birdman bragged about Lil Wayne selling a million records three times in a row and the fact that Universal opened their checkbook for him. Birdman was on fire, eager to take his interviewers out on the town for a good time. Birdman said he had been waiting for the Hot 97 crew for three days.
There’s also a new movie coming out about Birdman’s life, he said, a biopic that will explain his life prior to exploding onto the rap scene. When Birdman got his tattoos on his face and the gold in his mouth at 12 years of age, he said that he had accepted the fact he would accept a life of “trapping,” or drug dealing. He didn’t know he’d have to enter the corporate world. Birdman also chastised the crew for not playing 50 Cent’s “I’m the Man” song more often.
