Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV is already stirring controversy and it’s not even officially out. On a new song off his highly-anticipated album, Weezy spits a fiery verse that some have perceived as a shot at Jay-Z.
The stinging lines appear on “It’s Good” featuring Jadakiss and Drake. “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 ni**a, press your brakes ni**a/ I’ll take you out, that’s a date, ni**a,” raps the Young Money chief.
The verse is believed to be his response to Jay’s verse on “Hâ€¢Aâ€¢M,” where he reportedly took shots at Birdman. “I’m like really, half a billi, ni**a really you got baby money/ Keep it real with ni**as, ni**as ain’t got my lady money,” spits Hov.
Wayne acknowledged that he heard Jay’s verse and hinted that he may respond in an interview with MTV News from March. “‘Ye played it for me personally,” said Wayne. “I went to a session with him the other night. I wouldn’t ask him about a Jay-Z line because he’s not Jay-Z.
“Actually the subject that he’s talking about in that line, I can’t box with the god with that, nah mean. I’ll be the first one to tell you that. Given my wit and the type of person that I am, I’ll capitalize and I’ll play off of it.”
