American rapper Bryan Christopher Williams, popularly known by his stage name Birdman, opened up about his “lip kiss” with rapper Lil Wayne on Big Facts podcast on Tuesday 21 September. 


A photo of Birdman and Lil Wayne kissing on the lip from 2006 has resurfaced and seems to have been misunderstood by fans for years.

Birdman revealed on the Big Facts podcast that the kiss actually stemmed from the fear that he might never cross paths with the Lollipop hitmaker again.

“I always looked at Wayne as my son and I always looked at it like, ’cause I was in the streets, and I thought this might be the last time he ever see me,” said the rapper. 

“Cause I was living like that. That’s what that s*** really started from ’cause I thought that every night I leave, I might not ever come back,” he continued.

Birdman explained that he took on the father role in Lil Wayne’s life and he loves him like his own. 

“I was his father when he didn’t have a father since he was nine years old,” said Birdman of Lil Wayne who attempted suicide at the age of 12. 

“And I love him like my own, and I’d give my life for him and I’d take a life for him,” he continued.

Birdman: ‘That’s my son’

In a previous radio interview with Tim Westwood in 2009, he also mentioned that Lil Wayne is like a son to him and he would kiss him again, just like he would his daughter.

“That’s my son. If he was right here, I’d kiss him again. I kiss my daughter, my other son — you have children? Well, if you did, you’d understand what I meant with it. I just think people took that too far, man. That’s my son. I’ll do it again tomorrow; I’ll kill for him. Ride and die for him,” he said at the time.

Birdman also added that the only suitable opponent for Lil Wayne in a Verzuz battle is Lil Wayne himself. 

“Himself, Wayne versus Tunechi. He got too much s*** going on, he don’t need to touch that. Come on, brother — this is Tunechi,” he said in the interview with Big Facts.
