Drake Responds To Lil Wayne's Jay-Z Diss
 

 
LOS ANGELES -- If there is a Lil Wayne/Jay-Z beef brewing, Drake isn't indulging.

Although he is featured on Weezy's "It's Good" -- the leaked Carter IV track that finds Lil Tunechi throwing a subliminal shot in Hov's direction -- Drizzy downplayed any involvement.

"I just got a beat and did a verse over it," Drake told MTV News from the red carpet for the BMI Urban Awards n L.A. on Friday before he accepted the award for Songwriter of the Year. "Whatever any other individual has to say, you have to ask the man himself. I just did what I know how to do. I just got on a record. I heard the beat, did a verse and heard the final product."

On the song, VMA Nominee Wayne raps, "Talkin' 'bout Baby money? I got your Baby money/ Kidnap yo' bi*ch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money." To the casual listener, the line doesn't sound like much, but fanatics can connect the lyric directly to Jay-Z's jab on the Throne's "H.A.M."

It all started in 2009 when Cash Money CEO Bryan "Baby" Williams objected to Jay-Z topping MTV News' Hottest MCs list for that year. "I don't think he the number one MC, in no kinda way," Baby said, casting the first stone. "Wayne is the best, he do the most and he make the most money. I don't think no n---a in the business make more money than us."

It took a few years, but Hov returned fire at the top of this year when he and Kanye leaked their first Watch the Throne track, claiming not only that Birdman and Wayne weren't seeing Jay-Z-caliber bucks, but that financially, they couldn't even compare to his wife, Beyoncé. "I'm like, 'Really, half-a-billi?' N---a, really, you got Baby money/ Keep it real with n---as, n---as ain't got my lady money," Jay lyrically retorted.

Wayne hinted at retaliation when he sat down with MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway in March. "Me and my wit, given my wit, I would probably play off of it," Wayne explained. "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."

And he definitely did. But when it comes to Weezy's response, in which he playfully threatened to kidnap Hov's lady and hold her for ransom, Drake didn't feel comfortable speaking for his YM mentor.

"At the end of the day, rap is an individual art," he said. "You express yourself and whatever you wanna say, you say it, so I guess that's a question for Wayne more than me."

In an August 25 interview with Vibe magazine, Wayne cryptically responded to a question about potential fallout form his track. "I know there won't be any repercussions behind what I did," Weezy boldly said. "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."

No word on whether Wayne will perform "It's Good" when he touches the VMA main stage on Sunday, but whatever happens, the YMCMB camp is promising a rock-star performance.

What do you think of Lil Wayne and Jay-Z's lyrical beef? Will Hov respond? Tell us in the comments.

The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will air live Sunday, August 28, from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles at 9 p.m. ET/PT, following the Selena Gomez-hosted pre-show at 8. See the list of nominees, revisit last year's highlights and vote for Best New Artist by visiting VMA.MTV.com.

Soooo, Drake, what's this then:

Mind in one place, heart in another
Please pardon my brother
He’s just angry at you n*ggas who dont have your heart in your rap sh*t
And got too fu*kin comfy, cause we still fu*kin hungry
Young Money, got the munchies

Those were the lines/verse that preceded Wayne's verse. That sounds like he knew about the contents of Wayne's verse.

Too late to back down now plehboi, belieee dat burr burr
