Lil Wayne Says “I’m Better Than Jay-Z” In Complex
Date: December 2006
What happened? In an interview with Complex, Lil Wayne explained his feelings on Jay-Z coming out of retirement saying, “I don't like what he's saying about how he had to come back because hip-hop's dead and we need him. What the fuck 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."
Complex says: One of the clearest shots between the two, Wayne wanted the number one spot in the game and he wasn’t up for sharing it.
