Birdman never asked to be included in the lyricist’s lounge, his primary focus always on the business side of things, as it pertained to his Rich Gang, Cash Money holdings, one distinguishable from the other on the basis of time.
Current-day Birdman has adapted to become a “behind the scenes” figure for the most part. It could be argued that his lyrical output, when scrunched together, barely fits the criteria of a recording artist, in the modern sense of the world. But when he does put himself in that position, Baby rarely disappoints. On Just Another Gangsta, he and fellow Cash Money great Juvenile remind us of their essential purpose, with a project steeped in late 90s nostalgia.
