All hell is about to break loose if the rumors circulating around that Lil’ Wayne dissed Jay-Z are true!
On Lil’ Wayne’s track “It’s Good” featuring Jadakiss and Drake off “Tha Carter IV”, which mind you isn’t even out yet, Wayne spits a verse that will have you contemplating. The “How To Love” rapper shows no love saying:
“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,”
Many take the verse to be a response from Jay-Z’s verse in H.A.M. were he spits:
“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,”
Back in March Lil’ Wayne addressed the verse to MTV News saying:
“‘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.”
If you haven’t heard of The Weeknd ye,t get to know him because he’s on the come up. “The Zone” is a Drake- assisted track from his newest mixtape Thursday. The Toronto lyricist is bringing a sexy, mellow feeling back into the game. The Weeknd gets into his zone rapping:
“I been making love to her through you/ so let me keep my eyes closed”

Lenny Kravitz, Swizz Beatz and Drake collaborate for the breezy “Sunflower,” a track from Kravitz’s upcoming album Black and White in America, dropping August 30.
Lenny previously told Billboard:
“I got on the phone with Drake for [‘Sunflower’] before he had even heard the track and he said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it. I’m a fan and I love your work and I would love to be on it.’ So that was cool.”
I am LOVING the old school vibe of this tune! Check it out:
We’ve been waiting for this one. Lil’ Wayne recently dropped his newest track “She Will” featuring Drake. Weezy raps:
“N*ggas is jealous/but really I could care less/ I’m in hell’s kitchen with an apron and a hair net
Take a listen below.
There is no comparison between Lil’ Wayne & Drake’s forthcoming collaborative album according to Birdman. The Cash Money CEO sat down with xxlmag.com to discuss this and what sets them about from Jay and Kanye. Birdman almost immediately went in on how this album shouldn’t be compared to “Watch The Throne”:
“It’s older versus younger. “I listened to a few songs [off Watch The Throne] and it feels like an older feel to me. I think with Drake and Wayne, they young. They young cats. You got 23 and 28. Then you got Jay-Z and them, who are older and really on their way out the game. Then you got Wayne and Drake and them, who are still youthful to the game. So, it’s two different types of music all the way across the board.”
Other than discussing their age group Birdman gave his props for what the duo has done for rap:
“But what they’re doing is great. “I think it’s great for the game, great for the business, great for retail as a whole. I just think when Wayne and Drake get together is going to be something real special also because we more youthful.”
Do you agree with Birdman??
Lil’ Wayne is in promo mode for his highly anticipated album “Tha Carter IV”. He was “Sorry For The Wait” and now it appears that he’s ready for August 29th to be here. Looking very rock star-ish with his shades, piercings and body art work, Wayne stays true to self.
With his performance on the VMA’s nearing and soon to be released track “She Will” featuring Drake on the horizon. Get used to seeing even more Weezy F’ baby..and please say the baby.

Yesterday, we showed you general coverage of the OVO Fest in Toronto, but today we have something a little more special.
During his set, Drake sang a snippet of Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” during an R&B medley, slowing it down from the original version. Mmm, mmm, mmm, he sings it so well.
