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

Jay-Z Sends Subliminal Shots At Lil Wayne On “Trouble”

Date: November 2006

Lyric: “I can only view lil’ niggas like lil' niggas/But in lieu of lil' niggas trying to play that boy/I *phew, phew* lil' niggas with the latest toy/Unlike you lil' nigga, I'm a grown ass man/Big shoes to fill nigga, grown ass pants/Probably hustled with your pops, go ask your parents/It's apparent you're staring at a legend who/Put a few lil' niggas in their place before/Trying to eat without saying their grace before/Blasphemous bastard get your faith restored.”

Complex says: By this time, Wayne’s consistency prompted many fans to argue that he was the best rapper alive. Meanwhile, Jay was back from retirement and bent on reclaiming his spot. We couldn’t help but wonder if Jay was subliminally talking about Wayne on here because he kept referring to “Lil.” The last line on here was a clear reminder to the young rapper that the God MC is not to be toyed with.
