Lil Wayne Speaks On Jay-Z Diss “It’s Good”
(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated new album, Tha Carter IV, officially hit the Internet last night in a leaked form before the album’s official release this Sunday, and has caused quite a stir online for a reported Jay-Z diss found on the album’s fourteenth track “It’s Good,” which also features Drake and Jadakiss.
Wayne raps: “Talkin’ bout baby money, I got ya baby money / Kidnap yo b***h, get that how much you love yo lady money / I know you fake n***a, press yo breaks n***a”
Speaking to Vibe for an upcoming issue, Wayne was asked about the verbal assault and responded with the following:
“I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did. I know for a fact music is about perception. 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. 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. I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.”
This all began last summer on The Throne’s track “H.A.M.” where Jay-Z addressed the amount of money that Cash Money CEO Birdman actually makes. Following the release of the song to the public, Wayne addressed the issue back then with MTV:
“Me and my wit, given my wit, I would probably play off of it,” Wayne explained. “But I wouldn’t make it a competition, because actually, the subject that he’s talking about in that line, I can’t box with the god. I’d be the first one to tell you that, given my wit, and the type of person that I am, I’d capitalize and I’d play off of it. Yeah, I definitely would.”
