A Recent History of Vicious Interview Disses in Rap

Lil Wayne Disses Clipse in Complex

Date: December 1, 2007
Best Line: "I thought the whole 'Mr. Me Too' video was about me, to tell you the damn truth. They think I want to be like them. I'm on a million-dollar bus going around the world charging people from $50,000 to $150,000 for verses, and I got 77 songs in magazines and I got a billion more. Do the math; you think I'm trying to be like you? No sir."

During his first Complex cover story, Lil Wayne made sure to fire shots at Clipse after being accused of coping their style—essentially, wearing BAPE and rapping about cocaine. Wayne said "They had to do a song with us to get hot, B," in reference to "What Happened To That Boy." However, in his second Complex cover a year later, Wayne took more direct shots at Clipse, claiming that "Mr. Me Too" was clearly based on him. After dropping some hot figures, the math was clear—Wayne wasn't worried about anyone besides himself at the time.
