Dec 4 - Lil Wayne Goes After Onetime Idol Jay-Z: 'I'm Better Than Him'
 

 
Lil Wayne once said he was the "best rapper alive since the best rapper retired."
Well, with Jay-Z the man Weezy once called his favorite MC out of retirement (see "Jay-Z's 'Retirement' Is Finally Over: New Album Due In November"), Wayne said his stance has changed a bit. Lil Wayne has declared he's still the best even if Hov is officially back on the playing field (see "The Making Of The Best: Lil Wayne Plots His Path To The Top").
"I'm better than him," Wayne said in the new issue of Complex magazine, which features the Cash Money Millionaire on the cover with Travis Barker. "I'm 24 years old. ... I'm 13 years deep with five albums and 10 million records sold."
In the article, Wayne also had some disparaging words for the Clipse, Pharrell Williams and and Young Buck, and said he took issue with Jay rapping about being "hip-hop's savior."
"I don't like what he's saying about how he had to come back because hip-hop's dead and we need him," Wayne said. "What the f--- do you mean? If anything it's reborn, so he's probably having a problem with that. You left on a good note, and all of the artists were saying, 'Yo, this is Jay's house. He's the best.' Now he comes back and still thinks it's his house. ... It's not your house anymore, and I'm better than you."
Jay recently clarified stamping himself "hip-hop's savior" on Kingdom Come as a play on words. "When I say 'saving hip-hop,' I don't mean like I'm standing on a mountain saving hip-hop," he said. "I mean, hip-hop needs events, it needs certain things to happen at certain times, like a spark of energy. Like a [Dr.] Dre album or those moments in time that you look back on when Snoop Dogg first came out, it was like 800,000 [albums sold] in the first week. Those events are needed in hip-hop, and it just felt like it was too far in between.
"My album, I believe, is just going to do its part," he continued. "It's not single-handedly going to save hip-hop. No one can do that. I don't have those delusions of grandeur."
Looking at sales of Hova's latest opus, it looks like he's close to accomplishing his mission. He sold close to 700,000 copies in his first week, easily taking the #1 position (see "Jay-Z Scores Seventh #1 With Kingdom Come").
On Monday (December 4), a video for the album's second single, "Lost Ones," debuted on "TRL." "I feel like a rock star," he said when MTV recently asked him what it feels like to be Jay-Z. "I'm happy to be back. I'm happy to be embraced by the people the way I am already. I'm anxious for people to hear the music I've got. I think you're going to enjoy it, and I'm feeling like a rock star right now. I'm feeling like I'm in the best shape of my life. Muhammad Hovie!"
Jay obviously felt especially great on Monday: He was celebrating his 37th birthday.

lil wayne is definitely going out of his place to say that he is better than jay. wayne is a monster but jay is a beast. hip hop was not dead but jay has brought it back to par. his album may not be the old jay we all know but he has matured as an artist. everyone is quick to hat his new album because they cant relate to it, but thats the point. jay decided its time to resurrect reality and not stories about his life. we all know what he once was but now we want know what hes become. wayne has to step up his abc rhymes and move up to the next grade. he still sounds like hes twelve so he is not even on jays level.

Personally I like both. I thought the Carter 2 was hard as fu*k. But I wasn't feelin' Jay's new album as much as I did the black album or blueprint. Everyone's gotta talk big. I bet TI says he's the best, Snoop says he's the best, Jay says he's the best. It's all opinion. I just hope this fosters some quality tracks that come out in the near future.

Lil Wayne is fu*kin garbage he's always been, he thinks hes the man ever since he left Cash Money and stopped being that little dude in the background of Juve videos. n*ggas is talkin reckless, nobodies better than Hov. Cam, Jim Jones, Weezy, none of these dudes dont even come close to his stature. Nas was and will always be the ONLY emcee right up Hov's alley, thats just the way it is, theres no competition here. fu*kin' n*ggas are retarded HIP HOP IS DEAD, wow!!

Lyrically...Eminem was the best rapper. Maybe his subject matter and stories weren't up to Jay and Nas. But his linguistics (sp?) haven't been touched by anybody IMO. Even though his last few albums were garbage.

I don't understand why he has so many fans. He doesn't appeal to me at all. I don't care how "lyrical" he is, the guys voice sounds like nails on a chalk board. And he really needs to stop taking pictures of himself without a shirt on like he's ripped. He's built like a fu*kin tooth pick.

wayne just tryin to get some shine...hopin Hov will say something...and he can drop his lil diss record. Its cool if you think you the best, if you dont think that then you shouldnt be doin it. But u dont have to make it an issue when another n*gga feel like he is the best, if its like that its a lot of other n*ggas Wayne need to be dissin (T.I., Cam'ron, Game, Eminem, 50 Cent) and whoever else thinks or have said they are the best in the game.

I used to hate lil wayne when i would see him in that one video with his shirt pulled up over his head but his arms still in it....i dunno what video.....but for real im feelin him lately alot. Personally i think wayne is better then jay by leaps and bounds right now. the verse he kicked on Hollywood Divorce was real nice, his verse on that Bow Wow song is real nice. that track "Cry Out" is dope as fu*k and i think better then any song on Jay's new album. I loved Jay when he came in the game. I was just entering college and partying alot and every party was bangin jay, every time i turned on Power 99 I would hear that song 'In my Lifetime" and i loved it but things change and Wayne been steppin his game up...if you aint heard that song Cry Out go listen to it.

Wayne is dope but he got no business trying to fu*k with Em, Game, or even 50.
