Birdman Walks Out Of “Breakfast Club” Interview With Charlamagne (VIDEO)
Birdman walked out of his “Breakfast Club” interview on Friday morning, after confronting the show’s Power 105.1 hosts over allegedly disrespecting him. Watch below.
Birdman was slated to be the big guest on this morning’s radio broadcast, but before they went on air, he started going off. As seen in the footage below, the rap mogul walked in with a small entourage and then declared to DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God, “I’m gonna start this sh*t off straight telling all three of y’all stop playing with my name.”
Apparently upset over the show’s past interviews with Rick Ross and Trick Daddy, both of whom discussed him, Birdman continued, “Stop playing with my f*cking name. Period. Stop playing with my name… N*gga, when my name come up, respect it. Stop playing with my f*cking name. All three of ya’ll, stop playing with my name. I ain’t gone say it no more.”
Charlamagne encouraged Birdman to say his piece on air, and DJ Envy then formally kicked off the show, calling the rapper “a special guest.” Charlamagne then interjected, “He done cursed us out. Tell ’em — get it off your chest, Birdman.” He responded quietly, “I said it already. I ain’t gotta talk no more.”
The two men then went back and forth, with Charlamagne pressing, “I don’t understand the anger,” and questioning why Birdman even came to the show. And that got the performer and businessman fired back up. “I wanted to talk to you as a man to your face. You understand me? I knew a few places you was at, I coulda pulled up. But I thought that was gangster. I wanted to come look you in your face like a man and tell you how I feel.”
He then insisted there was “no issue,” but went on, “I just wanted to let you all know stop — put some respect on my name.” Charlamagne asked, “Did you pull up on Ross that way, or Trick Daddy?” Birdman shot back, “I’m pulling up on you, n*gga.”
And with that, Birdman asked if they were “finished” and “done.” “I ain’t got no more talking,” he said, getting up and signaling to his crew that he was leaving. After they left, Charlamagne quipped, “Grand opening, grand closing.”
Yee cracked, “What about all my notes?” And DJ Envy declared, “Our shortest interview ever.” Check out the full video below. Warning: Graphic language.
