As Birdman matriculates, the Cash Money CEO is shedding his marred reputation as a businessman by making amends with artists like Juvenile and Lil Wayne. To continue this metamorphosis, Baby revealed that he would like to remove his face tattoos as a sign of growth and maturity.
On Friday, Baby and Juvenile made an appearance on the popular talk show The Wendy Williams Show. While promoting their new joint-album Just Another Gangsta, Stunna explained to Williams that he’s ready to part ways with his prominent face tattoos.
“I didn’t want to take the head [tattoos] off but I wanted to take the facials off,” Baby said. “I just felt like me being older, I would like to get it off.”
Prior to his appearance on Wendy, Birdman and his brother/co-founder of Cash Money Records Ronald “Slim” Williams sat down with Forbes to discuss their CMB empire. During this conversation, Birdman disclosed that his maturation combined with the pressures of the business world have fueled the desire to remove his face tats.
“I just think at this point in my life, I don’t need that,” Baby told the publication. “That stereotypes you. It takes away from the business and certain things.”
The person who helped motivate Stunna to make this transition speaks to the new position that he alluded to in Forbes. In addition to evading Wendy’s trademarked shade, Baby stated that his former foe 50 Cent aided in him realizing that his face tattoos are not as becoming as they once were. 50 even referred Birdman to the specialist that removed some of his tattoos.
“I was asking my partner 50. Shout out to 50 Cent,” Birdman said. “Cause he removed his tattoos and I wanted to go to somebody who can take these tats off my face.”
