Jay-Z takes aim at Lil Wayne, and says he’s “ready for that war.”
Jay-Z keeps the headlines coming, as the latest lyrics revealed from his upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail serve as a diss towards Lil Wayne.
On Jay-Z and Kanye West’s track “H.A.M.,” where Jay raps, “I’m like, ‘Really, half-a-billi?’ / Ni***, really, you got baby money / Keep it real with ni***s, ni***s ain’t got my lady money,” Wayne took the bars as a diss towards Cash Money head honcho Birdman, a/k/a Baby.
In response, Wayne dropped “I’m Good” on Tha Carter IV, rhyming, “I got your baby money / Kidnap your b***h, get that how much you love your lady money.”
Though both verses dropped in 2011, it appears Jay-Z hasn’t forgotten about the bars aimed at his wife, Beyonce.
“Wanna kidnap wifey / Good luck with that bruh / You must gonna hide your whole family / What you think we wearing black for / Ready for that war / Ready for that war ready / You ain’t ready, yo, you radio,” spits Jay.
The two emcee’s history of subliminals began in 2009, in an interview where Birdman claimed Wayne was both more lyrical and made more money than Hov. Jay brushed off the notion in an interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97. Later, at a pre-Grammy party in 2012, Wayne spit a few bars dissing Jay-Z and Kanye West’s group, The Throne.
This beef has been going on so long that I didn’t even remember that they had beef toward each. others.
