9. Lil Wayne Apologizes To Jay-Z For Saying He Was Better Than Him
Date: February 2007
What Happened: Responding to Jay-Z coming out of retirement in a December 2006 interview with Complex, Lil Wayne addressed Jay-Z saying, “It's not your house anymore, and I'm better than you."
But Wayne soon backtracked a February 2007 interview with XXL: ““I wanna apologize to Jay and his family and friends, because I was asked that question and they put it in there like I was just feeling like, ‘Oh, you know what, nigga? I’m better than Jay!’ They came at me like, ‘So you say you’re the best. Can you say that you’re better than everybody? Would you say you’re better than Jay?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, nigga, I’m better than everybody!’ But I’d like to throw that apology out there ’cause of whatever trouble I caused, I ain’t want that to happen.”
Complex Says: First they love you, then they hate you, then four years later they threaten to kidnap your wife for ransom.
