TaylorMade: Rapper and producer, Birdman

EDITOR’S NOTE: Continuing Front Row’s pledge to take fans places they rarely see, we bring you “TaylorMade.” The recurring feature places you alongside editorial assistant Taylor Garrett as she roams the studios, halls, buildings, offices and green rooms across ESPN’s sprawling Bristol, Conn., campus.

This week, we bring you the latest “TaylorMade” spent with rapper/producer, Birdman during Thursday’s “Car Wash.” Birdman was promoting his upcoming show on BET, “Music Moguls.”
