Frenemies: A History Of Lil Wayne & Jay-Z's Relationship

Jay-Z Calls Lil Wayne His Heir On “Mr. Carter”

Date: June 2008

Lyric: “I'm right here, in my chair/With my crown and my dear/Queen B, as I share/Mic time with my heir/Young Carter, go farther/Go further, go harder/Is that not why we came?/And if not, then why bother?”

Complex says: Everything being on the up-and-up, Jay decided to return the favor that was Wayne’s verse on “Hello Brooklyn 2.0” with a guest appearance on Tha Carter III’s “Mr. Carter.” With Jay feeling confident that he was back in the driver’s seat after the release of American Gangster, he finally acknowledged the claims Wayne had made for years and embraced him as the heir to hip-hop’s proverbial throne.
