Lil Wayne on Jay-Z Diss Song: ‘It Is What It Is’

The Internet is going nuts over Lil Wayne‘s controversial song ‘It’s Good‘ (featuring Drake and Jadakiss), which recently leaked online. The presumed diss track, which appears on the rapper’s new LP ‘Tha Carter IV,’ features Weezy throwing lyrical jabs at the hip-hop king Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé:

“Talkin’ about baby money, I got your baby money, kidnap your b—h, get that how much you love your lady money / I know you fake n—a, press your brakes n—a / I’ll take you out, that’s a date, n—a,” he spits.

The stinging verses is in response to Jay-Z’s line on ‘H*A*M,’ in which he reportedly dissed Wayne and his mentor, Cash Money Records CEO Birdman. “I’m like really, half a billi n—a / Really you got baby money… [you] ain’t got my lady’s money,” he raps.

In an interview with VIBE, Wayne cryptically addresses his harsh lyrics against Hov and Bey-Bey, and seems unfazed by the notoriety the song has received on the blogosphere.

“I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did,” he told the publication. “I know for a fact music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can’t ever be upset about someone’s reaction.”

For the Young Money leader, ‘It’s Good’ is just another track on the album. So whatever develops in response to the song, Wayne is ready to roll with the punches. “I’m not going to say I don’t know what would happen before I even say [something on record],” he says. “I do know what will happen. I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.”

Honestly, we hope that Jay-Z doesn’t respond to the Weezy’s taunts. Two millionaire rappers throwing lyrical jabs at each other doesn’t really excite us unless the songs are good. However, Hov might fire back since Wayne call Beyoncé a b—h, which was very uncouth of him.

So tell us what you think. Should Jay-Z respond to Lil Wayne’s diss record? Post your comments below.
