Birdman recently sat down with Big Bank, DJ Scream, and Baby Jade for the BIG FACTS podcast, and he was asked about videos and photos of him kissing Lil Wayne on the mouth.

Birdman explained, “”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. Cause I was living like that. That’s what that sh*t really started from ’cause I thought that every night I leave, I might not ever come back. He went on to add, “And I always today look at Wayne as my child. I was his father when he didn’t have a father since he was nine years old. And I love him like my own and I’d give my life for him and I’d take a life for him.”
