What happened? In a response to Jay-Z’s “H.A.M.” diss, Wayne rapped on Tha Carter IV’s “It’s Good,” "Talkin' 'bout baby money, I got your baby money / Kidnap your bitch, Get that ‘how much you love your lady?' money/I know you fake nigga/Press your brakes nigga."
When asked about the line Wayne said, “I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did. 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.”
Complex says: Reminiscent of the time Jay-Z mentioned Nas’ baby’s mother on “Superugly,” Waynes mention of kidnapping Beyonce may have taken this battle up a notch. Saying, “Press your brakes” is Wayne no longer willing to defer to Jay-Z. His nonchalant, “It is what it is” quote afterward furthers the fact that Wayne is now willing and ready to take out his most skilled adversary yet. The ball is in Jay’s court now.
