Lil Wayne is not expecting nor concerned with a Jay-Z lyrical rebuttal to his Carter IV album containing a diss challenge and disparaging Beyonce comments.
“It’s Good, which also features Jadakiss and Drake, contains several Wayne retorts for Jay-Z in response to the Roc Nation CEO’s perceived jab on Watch the Throne’s “H.A.M” (“You got Baby money… You ain’t got my lady’s money…). Wayne flips Jay’s line by threatening to kidnap Beyonce (“I got your baby money/ Kidnap your bitch/ Get that how much you love your lady money”) and later declares he’ll “take out” Jay-Z. Jadakiss, who is signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, distanced himself from the song by claiming he had no idea a diss would be included with his feature.
Despite the controversy, Wayne told VIBE magazine that he’s certain Jay-Z will not engage in another high-profile Hip-Hop battle.
“I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did. I know for a fact music is about perception,” Wayne explained. “You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can’t ever be upset about someone’s reaction.”
In 2007, Lil Wayne declared in various interviews that he was a better rapper than Jay-Z. He later apologized, stating that his self-proclaimed “best rapper alive” moniker caused interviewers to use baiting questions. This time, Wayne assures observers there will be no such retraction.
“I’m not going to say I don’t know what would happen before I even say [something on record]. I do know what will happen,” Wayne said. “I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.”
At press time, Jay-Z nor Beyonce has addressed Lil Wayne’s record. Tha Carter IV will be released officially on August 30.
