Birdman Reveals He's Ready to Retire Following His Recent Collaboration with Lil Wayne

Birdman has disclosed his shocking plan to retire from rap once he wraps up a new project with his long time friend and fellow rapper, Lil Wayne.

For the finale of the “Young Money Radio" show, Lil Wayne was joined by his rap “pops,” Birdman — whose real name is Bryan Christopher Williams — for a conversation that lasted for sixteen minutes.

According to BET, the pair spent most of the show talking about their days as Cash Money stars, their view on the current stage of rap, and providing help to those in need during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Birdman [made the] headlines for his engagement to Toni Braxton. At the time, the news outlet noted that fans assumed that the pair’s relationship was over after they both posted some cryptic messages on social media.

It wasn’t until the conversation was nearly at its end that Birdman divulged his intention to quit the music industry. However, he made it clear that he wanted to work on one last rap project with Wayne before he left the game. While claiming that he preferred to “make rappers,” the 52-year-old said:

“I want [Like Father, Like Son 2] to be my farewell thing. I want to go out how I came in. Talking real rap.”

Bird man’s unexpected revelation comes a year after Forbes reported that he had put his Miami house up for sale. As pointed out by the outlet, the producer placed the 20,000 square-foot mansion on sale with an initial asking price of $20 million.

It didn’t take long before Birdman reduced the asking price for the seven-bedroom house to $14.5 million. The house, which underwent some renovation in 2011, was fitted with a home theater, recording studio, two guest suites, two wine cellars, a jacuzzi, and a 100 feet waterfront access. 

Just before he put his mansion on the market, Birdman made E! Online headlines for his engagement to Toni Braxton. At the time, the news outlet noted that fans assumed that the pair’s relationship was over after they both posted some cryptic messages on social media.

Things looked even worse when Braxton allegedly misplaced her engagement ring at an airport — an issue that the “Unbreak My Heart” crooner and her man have since resolved.

The couple has, in fact, moved onto other more significant issues such as a date for their big day. With regard to that, Daily Mail indicated that Braxon admitted that she and Birdman have been “going back and forth on wedding dates.”

It would be recalled that the Cash Money Records co-founder and his woman made their engagement public in 2018, almost two years after they started dating.
