So it’s nearly a week later and — even with Beyoncé and Drake dropping new albums — Birdman still has the Internet ablaze, following his interview with The Breakfast Club, that came to an abrupt end. There are endless memes floating around, videos that have chopped up clips of the interview, and even songs (like this one).
While I still stand behind Birdman 100%, I can’t lie; the stuff I have been seeing is pretty damn funny. So today, I decided to have a little fun of my own. Below is a transcript of the now infamous interview. The only thing is, it’s written how it would have been, if this happened in Jamaica.
Hopefully no one gets offended, as we are just trying to make light of the situation. Read this in the voice of your favorite Jamaican and enjoy a laugh, on me.
Birdman: Yuh ready?
DJ Envy: Yah, mon.
