Lil Wayne Disses Jay-Z (August 25, 2011)
Most listeners agree that Jay-Z threw a jab in Cash Money's direction on The Throne's first release, “H.A.M.,” when he said about, “You got baby money... niggas ain't got my lady money.” He may have been referring to a Birdman interview, in which he said Lil Wayne makes more money than Jay-Z. Lil Wayne later disputed Birdman's claim, but he also warned that he would soon “make a play” off of Jay-Z's diss.
On “It's Good,” Lil Wayne made good on that promise. “Talking about baby money?" Weezy bit back, "I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that 'How much you love your lady?' money.” The line sent the rap world into a frenzy, sparking debate around whether Jay-Z should respond or not.
Jay has yet to retaliate, but he did dismiss any talk of burgeoning beef, chalking the lyrics up as part of the sport of hip-hop. But the war of words between two of the biggest rappers in history was definitely one of the biggest stories of 2011.
