If I can kind of give you a update/background to this post, Birdman the artist/businessman got real on air. Once things go on air there is certain awareness that the audience in tuned in to a professional radio station. You know off air you can say whatever you want and put in place what can’t be talked about on air. So there were boundaries that got crossed I thought when he told the radio crew to be more respectful when they discussed him. Off air he gave them a warning about the usage of his name.
Birdman has provided the world with decades of music, he helped Lil Wayne get his bling bling. And yet Stunna has been sued by numerous individuals, usually other artist. His lawsuits often get publicized, so we talk about it and I think he gets portrayed as a crook. So this particular radio show is known for questioning his success and motives without him present.
I always remember my college professor saying that if the person being discussed isn’t in the room then that was gossip. Very true, yet we thrive on entertainment and it’s entertaining to talk abut these rappers.
Once they went on air, the djs asked about his remarks off air. The interview never really started, Birdman said what he had to say and left the station. He definitely got his message across.
Was Birdman pulling a stunt, you know summer is around the corner and this would be perfect publicity for an album or record?
I think with anybody and it’s hard to pull off because we talk shit, but if someone’s name other than our own comes out of our mouth then we should treat that name with respect. I would want the same if my name was being discussed. Easier said than done, believe that.
