Back in 2009, Birdman took a jab at Jay-Z, saying that “Wayne’s the best [emcee]…he do the most and he make the most money.” Apparently, Hova didn’t take too kindly to Baby’s comments, when he spit on January’s “H.A.M.” song, “Niggas fantasize about the shit that I do daily/ Like these rappers rap about all the shit that I do daily/I’m like really, half a billi, nigga, really you got Baby money/ Keep it real with niggas, niggas ain’t got my lady money.”
Now, two months since the song’s release, Weezy F. Baby responds to Jay’s alleged shot. According to MTV, Wayne isn’t looking to restart his competition with Jay-Z, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to keep quiet. He said that if he were to ever respond to Jay, it would only be in jest.
“Me and my wit, given my wit, I would probably play off of it,” he said. “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.”
Lil Wayne and Jay-Z famously took shots at each other in 2006 until the two artists connected on Jay-Z’s song “Hello Brooklyn 2.0.” The two have since hit the studio together on a number of tracks, including Wayne’s “Mr. Carter” and “Swagga Like Us” with T.I. and Kanye West.
