Lyric: “I’m like, ‘Really?/Half-a-billy nigga, really?’/You got baby money/Keep it real with niggas/Niggas ain’t got my lady’s money.”
Complex says: Referencing Birdman—also known as Baby—and his 2009 claim that Lil Wayne was making more money than him, Jay-Z reignited the fire. Demeaning Birdman and Wayne by calling their net-worth “Baby money,” Hov took it a step further by hinting that their funds don’t even stack up to Beyoncé’s. However, we always found Jay’s claim amusing, since Beyoncé makes more money than he does too.
