Hip-hop’s two biggest names, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, have thrown a couple shots each other’s way on wax this year … so what’s all the beef about?
Hov responded recently, surprised by why it’s even news.
On the track “It’s Good”, off Weezy’s recently released Tha Carter IV, the rap star send some shots Jay’s way, in response to a bar he aimed at Birdman.
“Talkin’ about baby money, I got your baby money, kidnap your bitch, get that how much you love your lady money / I know you fake n***a*, press your brakes n**** / I’ll take you out, that’s a date, n****,” Wayne raps on the track.
On Jay’s Watch The Throne single, “H.A.M.,” he had this to say: “I’m like really, half a billi, n**** really you got baby money / Keep it real with n****s, n****s ain’t got my lady money.”
Weezy downplayed the beef in Vibe magazine’s coverstory, saying “I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did.”
MTV News caught up with Hov at his carnival-themed benefit last Thursday (September 29), where he reluctantly addressed the situation.
“That’s sport, that’s rap music,” said Jay. “Nothing is going to change but the participants. I don’t even see why that’s news.”
