DJ COTTON HERE MIX: Birdman – “Respect My Name (Best Of Gamespitta Baby)


After the whole Breakfast Club fiasco with Charlamagne last week, Birdman’s name has ringing out here because he told them to “put some respect on his name,” among other things. Me personally, I liked it when his rap name was Baby and he was a “Gamespitta” and the #1 Stunna. This Best Of mix is from that era (the 90’s-late 2002) before he became Birdman and wanted to be a rapper instead.

This is the mixtape/session that was mentioned on Wayne’s Behind The Music where he spit all of the written material that he had left because he was not going to use pen & pad anymore ala Notorious B.I.G./Jay-Z.  Just because he doesn’t write anymore, that does not mean he’s “freestyling” each song.  He actually does lots of punch-ins.  This wasn’t a real popular mixtape and was soon forgotten, especially after the SQ/Sqad-Up mixtapes came out a few months later.  It was also well before high-speed connections and CD burners were easily available so if the bootleg man didn’t have it, most people didn’t either.

THA BIZ VIDEO: MTV Follows Birdman As He Sets-up Cash Money’s Grammy Party

Very interesting special that should air on MTV soon and really shows Baby as a person. They follow him as he plans Cash Money’s Grammy Party as well as meets with artists and studio personel. Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled and more all make apperances. CMR is basically set-up like most mob families. Birdman is to John Gotti as Suga Slim is to Carlo Gambino. Meaning, Birdman is the flashy one but Slim is the one who is really calling all the shots. People in the know have known this for years and Birdman says it here also.

My favorite part is when Birdman says that he doesn’t like loud music because he’s trying to conserve his ears (I’m the exact same way). They also show his children and his son Brian is poised to be the next head of CMR.

COTTON’S VIDEO VAULT: Lil Wayne kisses Birdman on Rap City (May 2002)

Going through my video library I came across this *ahem* interesting piece of footage that forgot I had.  This is the only posted footage of Lil Wayne kissing Baby aka Birdman on the mouth and happened on a May 2002 episode of BET Rap City.  Now they say their kiss is mafia-inspired, but you be the judge.  I have when they kissed on 106 & Park that same month somewhere also.  Tell me I don’t have the most interesting YouTube channel of vintage footage…don’t worry I’ll wait


NEW AUDIO: All-Star Cashville Prince aka Starlito – “Beggin My Feedom, Be My Friend or Belittle My Future” (Cash Money Records Diss)

FREE LITO! Who didn’t see this coming? Star’s going clean off on Birdman and CMR over the BMF beat and I’m suprised it took this long. I’ve said numerous times that Star woud NEVER release an album on CMR because he’s never been on CMR’s radar. This isn’t the first time he’s vented his frustration with CMR.  He’s doe it previously on “Rap Music Ruined My Life” back in 2006 (which wasn’t released until 2007’s Starlito’s Way 2) and his Hollywood Divorce starstyle, recorded the same year and finally released on his The Tenn-A-Keyan mixtape with DJ Crisis in 2007 also. 

It’s crazy that Birdman’s put out 4 albums since Star signed in 2004 and Star’s only been featured on TWO Cash Money songs in that same timeframe ( “We Gangsta” on 5 * Stunna and “No More” on Like Father, Like Son). It’s not like All-Star wasn’t putting out dope mixtapes. When Birdman recently spoke on all the upcoming CMR relases and Star wasn’t mention I knew it was a wrap for him.  I could write a book and a epic HBO series rivaling The Wire if I told the whole behind-the-scenes story of All-Star, Yo Gotti & Cash Money Records that I witnessed first-hand the last 6 years.  It would be the 2K version of Cadillac Records lol.

All-Star says it’s not a “diss” song…but what else can you call it with lines like:

“Like father like son, meet the stepson / interfering with my dreams, Inception”

“Had a Lex and a Luger like the dude that made the beat/ And I got some homeboys that probably wanna shoot at Baby”

“Too much pride to **** ride so I’m fighting for my rights”

“Maybe cause I ain’t a Blood, yeah I get it huh / But they wasn’t rocking bandannas when I met them”

“I sound a little bitter / well its cause I got lost in the system and they found some little n****s”

From All-Star aka Starlito’s blog:

“I don’t want to whine about my woes with a record label, I want progress. A heightened awareness is what I felt like bringing about, because I believe people ask me about my situation most frequently. I don’t have the answers. I do know what’s real, and that’s my desire to move forward as professional rap artist.

I don’t even have to know why things turned so sour, I just want my release to be signed off on…”
