XXL NEWS HIGHLIGHTS ’08: The Empires Strikes Back At Lil Wayne, “I Got Your Records From Somebody That Sits Next To You On Your Bus.”

No hard feelings. Despite being called out by Lil Wayne for putting out his unauthorized The Drought Is Over series, The Empire isn’t mad at Weezy. However, he does have some sound advice for the rapper.

“I’ve never been to a Lil Wayne studio session,” Empire told XXLMag.com. “He gotta look at his inside camp and understand that I got those records from somebody that sits right next to him on a bus…That’s co-signing him while he’s talking about me. I’m not gonna put his name out there, but it’s one of those guys. They’re sitting next to him every day.”

As previously reported, Weezy phoned into DJ Drama’s Shade 45 radio show to clear up comments he made about mixtape DJs in Foundation Magazine. Apparently, Wayne wasn’t pissed at DJs in general, but at Empire in particular. “For all DJs, just letting y’all know, that whole shit was meant for that Empire nigga,” Wayne declared during the phoner. “I don’t fuck with [him]. This nigga puts out a CD on me every month. I couldn’t [even] tell you what he looks like.” Empire has a different story.

“I spoke to Wayne,” the DJ assured. “After [The Drought Is Over] Pt.2, I spoke to him. We were supposed to work out a situation where we can work together. Wayne hosted my first Empire joint, so for him to say he don’t even know who I am, that was wrong.” He made the comments that I dropped CDs every month,” he continued. “That’s wrong. I dropped five CDs in two years. I made sure all of them were quality. My CDs are known for having the new music. These kids are running around putting stuff out like stuff I played or whatever leaks on the internet, I think that’s wack and I’ve been not feeling that. I feel like I did more good than bad. Those have been the hottest CDs in the streets for the past year and a half.”

To let him tell it, leaking Tha Carter III was wrong as well. Though he’s featured leaked records from earlier Carter III versions, Empire doesn’t agree with the DJs who leaked the CD in protest. “I could have took Tha Carter and put out a new Drought, but that’s not what I’m about,” he explained. “The kids that did that, that’s wack. They’re just trying to look for press.”

He didn’t leak the record and he won’t say if he profited from the Drought series, but he does have an opinion on Tha Carter‘s third act. Actually, Empire thinks The Drought Is Over Pt.2 is a better record than Tha Carter III.”It’s not what I expected,” Empire confessed. “There’s definitely some records on there. The Dought Is Over 2, a lot of those records were samples that would have been really good if they could have been cleared. It would have been very costly to clear. That “Mr. Carter” record on Tha Carter III, that record is crazy. No records on none of my tapes equal that joint. But I don’t know, The Drought Is Over 2 is just crazy to me.” –Carl Chery

    @ Sweet and anybody else who spits such blasphemy…

    What are you listening to that makes you say that Wayne is the greatest? Wayne is good, but he can’t compare to @ least 30 rappers that I can think of off the top of my head. ‘Mr. Carter’ was, is and will always be trash. Dedication 2 was hot, but this new syrup rap is trash and any real hip hop head knows the real.

    i got C3, i downloaded that shit cos wayne always says shit then denounces it, like the jay z shit…so i copped C3 off the chuck t link….i never heard drought is ova pt 2 but C3 aint bad. Id much prefer the “A Millie” verison with Corey Gunz, but he got murked on that, however Jay murders him on Mr Carter but its all good. Album will probably get 5 mics just for the hype but its probably 4.5. its not really hip hop defining but neither was lil kims classic (haha i cant remember the name now…is it naked? or some shit like that) anyways..i wont buy it now that i copped it off the link. oh and i wont buy it cos he fucked up Hello Brooklyn 2.0

    Ok Ok. It’s Wayne’s world right now. C3 leaked.
    And although I don’t get into that talk you all be saying about him, the album is NOT THAT BAD. “Gossip” stands out to me.

    But C3 will make him an OVERGROUND, MAINSTREAM artist. It is an international sounding project.

    Congrats to Cash Money. Grinding pays off.

  • TOWN BUSINESS (oakland)

    Shit everyone on earth know that Lil Wayne isn’t a street threat on any format. Glad DJ EMP has the balls to do such to wayne and not apologize.. empire is victimizing wayne.

    I have to go with Bmore sun.. @ sweet you sound like a twelve year old broad. Wayne can indeed say what he wants just as long as there is an apology behind it. Real men stand behind their worlds , regardless, from the begining and end.

    BUT LIL WAYNE WAS IN VIRGINIA PROMOTIN HIS SHIT ON THE RADIO. HE LEAKED LIKE 5 SONGS THAT HE SAID WERE ON THE ALBUM AND MY DUDE SAID THAT ONLY ONE OF THEM WAS ON HIS SHIT.

    HE IS JUST CREATIN A LAST MINUTE BUZZ.

      If anybody is the spitta now its juelz santana, pap, chamill, or even T.I. they all make better quality music then wayne does. Their quality of music is so much better then his, and wayne gets so much more credit and he stole juelz swag and acts like its his. Jim Jones and santana are his homies, i know but thats where he got it.

    Alot of people are thinkin too small scale for this. There are so many angles to the madness. Many people dont think about the engineer (the dj dont make the album he breaks the album). The Suits in the skyscrapers (They run this whole scene, one thing i know is i havent heard of too many rock acts having leaks). Wayne himself (with marketing ideas drying up, beefs are old; why not leak your first 16 tracks then record 5 more tracks that arent on the leaked version to stir the masses again). There are so many other directions to go in. Im not a Wayne fan but its a decent album. It versatile, not just all about swagger splashin. There is a bit of experimentation that i can respect (i.e Phone Home).

    But there’s alot of stupid lines he that says on the album…and to me his voice sound different..
    Well its an average album..definitely not a classic
    American Gangster, B.A.R.S, The Cool, The Solution, Ego Tripping, and a whole bunch of other albums last year was better than this

    ok ok

    carter II was better for flow and beats

    BUT

    carter II has got decent new concepts like Dr. Carter/phone home and also is a much more mature album than most people and himslef have ever put out

    he talks abotu real shit in tie my hands/misunderstood/shoot me down/comfortable

    the beats arent as good as CII but there are some bangers, some real shit tracks, some tracks for ze ladies and some dirty south music (la la etc.)

    3.) Dr. Carter

    4.) Shoot Me Down

    5.) You Ain’t Got Nothin’ (recycled and Fab had the best verse but everyone did well)

    Everything else is either average Weezy shit or just trash (“Phone Home”). That being said I think it’s the most versatile and lyrically accomplished album he’s put out since Tha Carter – not a classic though, sorry. 3.5/5

  • Wolverine03

    Can anyone explain to me how someone can even consider that wayne is the best alive? I could name 50 rappers right now that are better. He may have a couple of catchy songs and a few slick metaphors but he will never be taken seriously in my mind. If you think wayne is that hot you are clearly ignorant. Pick up a Wu-tang cd or a nas cd and you will quickly realize hes not even close to their level in any way shape or form.

  • balaramesh

    carter 3 is the most OVERHYPED record ever. that is why it took 2 years to drop.

    i give wayne credit. he does take shots with more mature sounding records. i think he is trying to be musical like kayne.

    this is my biggest problem with wayne: he makes great mixtapes but not so great albums. mixtapes, he can do what he is best at; just saying hot stuff that rhymes. on albums, his lack of overall direction shows. actually, let me rescind that statement. his label should have done a better job selecting songs. but if he really expects to be a label head, he has to become more involved.

    i cannot even listen to “a millie” anymore after hearing cassidy DESTROY anything wayne said on the original.

    wayne came in 3rd place on the joint with fab and juelz.

    the mr. carter is good. not great. but as expected, jay murkes him easy.

    overall, i would say that c3, is 3.5 out of 5 at best. not really a bad album but it does not live up to two years of hype.

    Iiight so fuck the dj? For real? Wow! First lemme say I dont get alot of radio/club play, sometimes my record dont apply & I can understand that but I dont care if I had no spins on my record I would never say fuck a dj. No DJ at all, I wouldnt say fuck a DJ that I dont know!! lol It just baffles me how the hottest artist out right now can say Fuck the dj’s!! Where would he be without the DJ tho? Real talk, I hear his records and its always a dj playing it. Be it on the radio, in the club or on a cd. If you hot then DJ’s gon fuck with you but they are part of the reason you hot, its a tag team kinda combo. You rap on everyone’s song (whether they want you to or not) you jump on cats tracks and send em out to the world, wouldn’t you want someone to think its hot enuf to play? So then I heard him on Drama and he said ” Fuck them dj’s”! Niggas takin my music and puttin out CD’s that aint official. Nigga? You rapped on 70 songs that wasn’t official! Alot of these DJ’s are branding you. They making you hot! If a kid grabs a best of cd from the barbershop he bought that for some of your new shit, If I asked him what CD he got he’s gon say yours, not DJ (insert name here) presents you! You gave DJ’s the option to play whatever you made…YOU gave them the option, you rapped on everything. Its crazy how cats do DJ’s after they get to the point that they want to get to. No single, you been rapping over everyone else’s shit for more than a year , you even book shows and do mixtape songs for over a year and right before your album drops its FUCK THE DJ??!?! You said it aint about the money so why would you care if they make a little change on a mixtape or attempt to keep thier name up by formatting and sequencing some of the music that you put out for FREE?? Some of these cats work at a radio station and clock in for two hours a day if that! They gotta hustle( clubs, weddings, parties, mix cds) just like you for the bread but now its fuck them? I’d go rap at a DJ’s daughter’s 8th birthday party ( and do drops while I was there) to make sure I’m in good standing with him/her, cuz as long as I make records Im always going to need them. Even when he called in to clear the shit up he still didnt really. Wow..yall made him the hottest rapper out and he said fuck yall & then said fuck yall again? See how these cats do you? Yall really need to support the artists that support you. Yall have the power to change this shit. I have a new record and album coming out and if I asked a dj if he had my record he could look me in my face and say he doesnt have 1 Skillz record in his Serato & I wouldnt say fuck him! Im scared of what would happen to my career if I did that. But my question is how can you make rap music and say fuck the dj and have a career, thats what the fuck I wanna know…..SKILLZ

  • faruk

    the carter 3 is pretty good man and i like rappers like jay-z, pap, nas, chamil, j-hood, juelz, jr. writer, really most dips, t.i. drake, fabolous, game, lupe, cassidy, beans, az.

    Its a good album he has some different concepts on the whole album. Dr. carter is krazie, that might be the best song in my opinion. Hes not the best repper alive but he is one of the better rappers alive, and he shows it in lyrics on this album. I thought it was gonna be garbage cause of the material he been realing lately (lollipop bullshit) but thats for the label and the bitchs anyway. But anyone who likes dedication 2 or drought 2 or even the carter 3 leak empire mixtape, then you should like this. ITS BETTER THEN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE!!!!

    I think Weezy needs to understand the marketing element that mixtape DJs bring to the game right now. For him to sell nearly three million records in 2008 must be attributed to his relationships with mixtape DJs. Now I’m not saying that Wayne needs DJs to sell records. It just seems to work out best for both parties when Wayne drops countless amounts of music every year.
