AllHipHop.com: Mystikal was definitely a surprise last week when that news came out. Nowadays, people have all kinds of opinions about this stuff, especially with the Internet now being so interactive. People had opinions about both Busta and Mystikal signing with Cash Money; it didn’t seem like the right fit to some people, so what do you say to that?
Birdman: Music tells it all. Time tells it all. I just want to give out good music. I mean, Mystikal will give us the best he has and Busta will give us the best he has, and at the end of the day, the numbers don’t lie. I’m gon’ definitely put them on the highest plateau I can put them on, at the superstar level that I know they’re at. We’re gon’ let it do what it do and keep working hard at it. Whatever we do this year, we have to do better next year, so for me, all of it is a growing pain. Everybody’s growing; everybody’s trying to expand, so ain’t no use of me looking at it like that. Whatever happens, happens. We’re growing, and we’re trying to continue to grow. Opinion and hatred – that’s a part of life. We accept that with motivation. That’s just life. We live through it, and keep it moving.
