Birdman talks 50 Cent's "I'm the Man" at the 38:00 mark.
"Can I tell y'all my favorite song right now? 50 Cent's I'm the fucking Man," Birdman told Angie. "Y'all should be playing that all day, every day. That's my shit. I played that before I come here. I'ma play that when I leave here. I'ma play that on the plane. I'ma play that when I get home. And I'm late on that song 'cause Miami just started playing it. Damn, 50 spittin' on that bitch and the song tight. That's my favorite. Shout out to 50 Cent, keep doing your thing."
"Does he know that? Did you tell him?" Angie asks.
"Nah, I never told him," Baby replied.
Angie then quizzed the Cash Money Records co-owner about his relationship with 50 Cent.
"We cool ... we real cool," he said.
