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.”
10:45 a.m. ET – The day started out with First Take.
11:43 a.m. – Birdman sat down with the First Take social team and gave his reaction to Chris Andersen’s performance during the 2005 NBA Slam Dunk contest. The lack of “Birdman” Andersen’s tattoos (at the time) was of particular interest to the Birdman in Bristol.
12:16 p.m. – The Undefeated interview with Maya Jones in the ESPN Radio green room.
12:35 p.m. Before a stop at the ESPN Café, Birdman strolled ESPN’s fight song alley and played his Univeristy of Miami Hurricanes’ fight song.

Our latest @hisherspodcast is with @birdman5star. Might be the best podcast interview we've ever done. In this clip, Birdman explains why he sleeps on a bed of money (literally) and on the podcast, he discusses his "friendship" with Toni Braxton, his upbringing, relationship with @liltunechi and love affair with New Orleans.
