Birdman Reveals He's Ready to Retire After Collaboration with Lil Wayne 'Like Father, Like Son 2'

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. 

"I would like to do a [Like Father, Like Son 2]," he told Wayne around the 15:30-mark of the interview.
"Come on, man. You ain't gotta ask. That's was not a question," Wayne replied. "You know I can send you six joints, you ain't gotta do nothing but put your verses on ’em. You already know how I do."
"I'm done rapping," Birdman replied. "Rapping ain't for me no more. I'm done with that shit. I like to make rappers. That's what I do... I just want it to be my little farewell thing. I want to go out how I came in."

Birdman and Lil Wayne's original Like Father, Like Son album dropped back in 2006. The LP was spearheaded by the singles "Stuntin' Like My Daddy" and "Leather So Soft," and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Baby has released 10 albums as a solo artist and as part of the Big Tymers duo with Mannie Fresh. Most recently, he put out the Just Another Gangsta collab album with Juvenile in 2019. A sequel to the project was announced but has yet to materialize.
