Birdman Says Lil Wayne Is Better Emcee Than Jay-Z

Birdman says there's no way Hov is number one in the game because Weezy "makes more money."

Bryan "Birdman" Williams [click to read] is expecting an abundant amount of success in the upcoming months under his Cash Money umbrella. He said in an interview recently that the label will release ten albums (including Drake's Thank Me Later, Wayne's Rebirth and The Carter IV, and Bow Wow's forthcoming CD) and that he is striving to have each of them fill up a spot on the top ten music chart. Although the idea of Cash Money monopolizing the entire top ten chart may be a stretch, the second portion of the interview was even more interesting. Baby spoke on Jay-Z's MTV crowning of "Hottest Emcee in the Game" [click to read], calling the music television channel wrong for its choice.

"I don't think [Jay-Z] is the number one emcee in no kind of way," he told Tropical TV. "Wayne's the best. He do the most and he make the most money. I don't think no nigga in the business make more money than us. How can you be the best if you don't  make the most money? And you don't do the most? Lyrically, come on man, be for real, can't nobody fuck with Wayne...if you number one and you ain't getting no money it don't mean nothing."

One may wonder if the Cash Money CEO's implication is that Jay-Z, who co-owns the Nets, the 40/40 Club, and who is one of the biggest entrepreneurial figures in Hip Hop, is actually not making much money compared to Lil Wayne. Equally as noteworthy, Baby expressed his belief that lyrical skills don't matter if an emcee isn't big in the bank.

"To me, it's 'who's making the most money,"
he continued. "That's number one to me. Fuck all that rap shit. They got cold rappers you never even heard. Then they got niggas who really can't rap and making money. It's about whose making the most money to me. I don't give a fuck about the rest of that shit. Maybe other ones do, but if you making money, that matters to me."

    Recognize game. Why yall even asking this mark Birdman "Aka Salad Tosser" about rapping. Fool dont know nothing but kissing his booboo on the lips all day. I wonder what else they be doing. Do they sleep in the same bed?? I wonder did Birdman fondle Wayne when he was younger to have some dude who's only a few years older to act in a homo way.. On the strength of that I cant co-sign nothing they do. That aint normal. By the way lil homie, Wayne you aint no Blood. You playing like its sweet. Come to Compton on some cuz $#!t and get dealt wit.

    The kings of hip hop during the 90's are the best emcees... Nas, jay, Snoop,BIG L (RIP), Biggie (RIP), Pac(RIP), wu tang, Big Pun (RIP) dmx (yes, ppl, he was the shit back in the 90s)... and many more When Wayne was shitin on cash money diapers, and Frake was trying to be a actor for NICK JR... It's obvious to say, thats where they learned to flow... How can a rehab candidate be better than a rapper turned well respected entrepreneur? How can a actor turned rapper be taken seriously? CASH MONEY RECORD LABEL IS FULL OF SHIT
