Drake Claims He Was Unaware Of Lil Wayne's Jay-Z Shot On "It's Good" At Time Of Recording

It's not just Jadakiss who was unaware that Lil Wayne would use the three-emcee moment to speak his mind on Jay.

Young Money Records emcee Drake spoke with MTV News last night on the red carpet to the BMI Awards. The Toronto, Ontario native revealed that was unaware of the contents of Lil Wayne's verse on "It's Good" at the time of recording. Drake, along with Jadakiss appeared on the Wayne track, which is included on next week's Tha Carter IV release.

“I just got a beat and did a verse over it,” said Drake, who won awards later in the evening. “Whatever any other individual has to say, you have to ask the man himself. I just did what I know how to do. I just got on a record. I heard the beat, did a verse and heard the final product.”

Jay-Z appeared on Drake's studio debut, Thank Me Later, which released last year.

Earlier this week, Jadakiss made a similar statement regarding his previous knowledge of the diss.

    see thats the problem with socitey people always want to see things escalate. Drake is doing what he is supposed to be doing "nothing". Thats why things get taken too far. Thats not that mans so called rap rap beef.he will be a fool if he responds to Jay and LiL Wayne issue. Also i dont think Drake is a pussy or he is not down for his team because he wont negatively respond. At the end of the day Wayne made the comment so he needs to deal with what ever the outcome may be.but lets not forget it was Baby who went on the air to say Wayne is better then Jay and Wayne has more money then Jay. When are we going to get it together as people and realize that negativity does nothing but bring blood shed. who ever stated that hiphop was built on beef doesnt know shit about hiphop because it wasnt.Hiphop would have much better songs if beef wasnt put in to it.So as people and fans of hiphop lets stop promoting rapbeef.

  • ItsJT

    I like Jay Z and Wayne so my comment is completely neutral. Truth is they both make money no matter the lyrics. Jay Z wouldn't make it a full on beef with Wayne cause he has too much to lose, he's at his final stage of his career and there would be no need for him to lose fans by dissing another rapper. Wayne however knows he has an enormous YMCMB fanbase and know they would back him up. I'd like to see them beef it out, the hip hop game is boring with everyone being friends. Funny how neither of them will EVER take a shot at Eminem, the king of disses. If you don't agree check out 'The Warning' dissing Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey

    ha ha figures drakes bitch ass would cower with his tail between his legs saying i have no part in that lol drake is quick to yell young money but when beef comes the fag turns vegetarian lol

  • Tim

    Drakes got too much respect for Jay you guys gotta realize beef is ones own thing Jay and Wayne got beef not Jay Wayne and Drake and besides wheres Birdman during all this

  • sun_god7

    The writings on the wall - Drake and Nicki are leaving Young Money as soon as their contracts are up. They both are - and can - be bigger than Wayne.

  • Jay Gonzalez Rojas

    who gives a fuck, i agree with drake... that's more of a question for wayne to ask. yea he is in young money, thats nice, very good for him... but that is wayne and jay-z... u r more of a pussy if u gotta have a friend on ur crowd to defend u, if he doesn't then fuck it... be a man.

    jay z is way better than wayne plus carter 4 is trash

      Eminem would burn anyone, anyway. The Game, Jay and Wayne know that. No one has the balls to take shots at Eminem, a white guy, who is murdering them at their own music. Respect at its most.

    Yeah right. These new school rappers are like politicians. They measure everything they say to make sure they don't piss off the wrong people instead of just being honest. I don't care how 'talented' Drake supposedely is, he's so corny as a person that I can't bear to listen to him. Rappers are just wack human beings these days. I can't support these punk ass dudes.

    This dude soft as baby ass. I like Drake though, but you can't trust him to have your back in a bar fight.

    Jay already responded on a freestyle, it went somethin like: "shit is easy, just believe me when you see me niggas. Make em sound like they got asthma, wheezy niggas. I press my brakes up. Im on tour, thats my only fuckin dates, bruh. You smokin on some laced up. They got phony flowin thru they vains...Fake blood" wonder where its goin from here

  • Azhar

    Not buying any of it...I personally think Jada and DFrake knew... Shit is real corny! And i may be in the minority but I thought Ether had a great beat but it was full of lies and jokes at least when Jay diss somebody he say truthful shit Takeover, Blueprint 2, Super Ugly, HAM were are real talk, Wayne u not a fuckin blood stop claiming sum shit u not apart of... shit is real fucking corny!!! And to bring Beyonce into it WTF...Real G rule no women no children...Wayne u a plug!!!!

      nah back down was the best diss track it was a physical beef before it hit the studio then we watched one rapper career go thru the roof and the other career was devistated it did plenty of damage 50 hit a nigga pocket and ego hard over a crazy dr dre track, nas and jay two lyrical monsters going at it.dosent matter who won or lost nobody lost any fans or money over it we just found out how much of a slut carmen was haha

    • YOUAJOKE

      ETHER WAS EASILY THE BEST DISS TRACK WHEN NAS AND JAY WERE BEEFING... YALL MUST BE MAD JAY STANS IF YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE SUPERUGLY IS BETTER THAN ETHER OR JUST FUCKIN STUPID BUT PROBABLY BOTH

      i was with you until you said that real g rule no woman shit. how you gonna say that right after you bring up superugly? by the way, that superugly shit is the only dis song that genuinely made me feel bad for somebody. jay went in on nas lady. anybody that says ether was better is lying.

    What everyone keeps forgetting is that Birdman called out Jay in like '09 saying he's not the top MC in the game and nobody gets money like Birdman and Wayne do. So Jay had every right to take those shots at Birdman, it just took him 2 years to do it.

    dont knw how we started discussing jayz and nas but i dont mind. Jay-z not only handled nas (blueprint2 song) but he signed him and and then left the label so nas was sent in a fucked up direction. And if its going to be anyone coming at jay-z now a days...who bette then wayne. 2 of hip hops commercial heavy weights. whether ur in denial or not.

    • DIRTYLES

      YOU SAYING JAY HANDELED NAS PROVES YOU DONT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT NOTHING . NAS EXPOSED JAY TO THE WORLD, BEFORE ETHER NOBODY WENT AT JAY AND I MEAN NOBODY. AFTER NAS DROPPED ETHER HE PROVED HE WAS THE KING OF NY. WAYNE ON THE OTHER HAND ISNT BUILT FOR THIS HE ISNT CLOSE TO BEING ON THE SAME LEVEL AS JAY OR NAS. OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN GETTING AT JAY (CAM'RON, 50, GAME) AND HE HAS NEVER ONCE UTTERED A REPONSE, WITH HIM RESPONDING SO QUICKLY ONLY PROVES HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR WAYNE, TRUST HOV WILL MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF WEEZY'FUCKIN'BABY. LOL!!

      How u start talkin bout Game in here??? Rappers aint got the right to go at legends and involve others unless there with that. I respect drakes response- if it's accurate. I DEFINITELY respect the fact Game wouldnt go at Nas and several other NY emcees. 50's talent is limited. That's why he wants to involve others he signs to get on wax and battle FOR HIM. He's a BITCH like that hahaha...

    Birdman talking out of his ass again:I love how Drake dismissed Birdman's nonsense talk of a collaboration LP with him and Wayne:Birdman should be put in a damn psych ward:He has some serious mental issues: Birdman is the reason for all of this nonsense:I doubt Drake would come to Birdman's defense the way Wayne has:Drake idolizes Jay-B, i believe Drake when he says he didn't know Wayne would diss Jay: Only person who takes Birdman series is Wayne:

  • PA

    Honestly by the way Jada and Drake are reacting it really give me hope on a Hov response. These ninjas sound SHOOK! lol. They came right out and said they dont want any part of the oncoming Jay-Z smack down he is about to put on Wayne. Wayne is prob the easiest person in the game to make a diss track on; Kissing baby, fake blood, wanna be punk rocker, lip rings and shit, to now a wanna be skater??? That fool has been a fake industry ninja and always will be cause he grew up in the industry and doesnt know any better. I really hope Jay comes back on this fool with a full record cause after that c4 performance Jay-Z might be able to dead his ass... Jay-Z: So busy kissing baby, you forgot to kiss my ring bitch. WTT!

      JADA AINT SCARED OF SHIT... IF HE WANTS BEEF HE CALLS OUT THE NIGGA OR JUST STRAIGHT UP DISSES THEM... NONE OF THESE FAG SUBLIMINAL SHOTS LIKE WAYNE AND JAY

    Bullshit!!! If u listen to Drake's verse on the song it is mighty ironic that what he raps about correlates so much with what lil wayne says in his verse....its funny how niggas backing down on wayne now!!!! LOL fucking clowns!!!!

  • Obi Patrick

    Bullshit, Drake would be the first to know with his dick so far up his ass...

  • Aubrey

    I never wrote that verse with the intention of hurting the jigga man. I love Jay-Z,but my love for Weezy is immeasurable. It breaks my heart that we haven't been intimate in while now,and I know his heart belongs to Birdman,but no matter what I want Wayne to be happy. So I support him in what ever he does. I only ghost wrote his verse because Weezy offered me sex in exchange,needless to say,Wayne I'm still waiting.holla!

    Heard C4 last night. Worst of the Carter series, and I'm a fan of the previous three. I hate how his rapping style has changed; he sounds like Rick Ross now. After hearing his most recent mixtape, my hopes weren't too high for C4, so I wasn't disappointed at least

    Let's stop with this nonsense as if Jigga is even worth the "fear". He's a clown making wack product and getting sales by over promotion. Nigga been wack forever since the black album and has given half ass work even before then. On top of that, he's the subliminal king...until Nasir roasted his ass and made the word "ether" a gatdamn verb. Wayne replied and got gully with the nigga. Who cares.
