Most average listeners heard Jay simply saying that his competition had "baby money," as in immature, little to none. But that's not what Team YMCMB heard in this line. CEO Birdman, a.k.a. “Baby”, took Hov's words as the ultimate offense, questioning the heaviness of his pockets.
While Jay has never confirmed or denied his intent behind the line, Young Money soldier Drake said it was ”silly” to claim that this wasn't an intentional diss. Considering how far the whole exchange has escalated—and how Birdman has actually embraced the term by claiming "We're going to keep spending this baby money"—we might have to side with Drizzy on this one.
