In this clip, Turk talked about the Big Tymers influence on the swag that’s associated with music today, particularly this idea of “stuntin'” which Turk says Birdman and Mannie Fresh started. He talked about each of their styles as rappers but pointed out that neither one actually considered themselves to be rappers. According to Turk, the only reason Birdman started taking rap serious was because he had no choice once Juvenile and B.G. decided to leave the label. Turk also spoke on Birdman adopting Lil Wayne as his son after Wayne’s biological father died and how Birdman was a father figure for the entire crew, especially him and Wayne.
This clip wraps up with Turk detailing his personal struggles with drug addiction which coincided with the tumultuousness that was cooking up within Cash Money. Turk spoke of how bad the drug habit had gotten, taking him to the point of overdosing after which point he said God intervened.
