Lil Wayne Reacts to Alleged Jay-Z Swipe [VIDEO]

Lil Wayne and Jay-Z’s beef may get thrown in the microwave and reheated. The New Orleans rap superstar finally spoke out about a line spit by Jay-Z on “H.A.M.”—the first track from Jigga’s collaborative album, Watch the Throne with Kanye West —that many speculated was aimed at Weezy.

In an interview with MTV News, the Young Money General said he may respond on wax to the alleged swipe, but he can’t lie about money he doesn’t have. “Me and my wit, given my wit, I would probably play off of it,” Wayne explained of how he would go about addressing the barb. “But I wouldn’t make it a competition, because actually, the subject that he’s talking about in that line, I can’t box with the god. I’d be the first one to tell you that, given my wit, and the type of person that I am, I’d capitalize and I’d play off of it. Yeah, I definitely would.”

The line in question stems from Jay’s verse on the Lex Lugor produced cut, “H.A.M.” which dropped last January. “Niggas fantasize about the shit that I do daily/ Like these rappers rap about all the shit that I do daily,” he raps. “I’m like really, half a billi, nigga, really you got Baby money/ Keep it real with niggas, niggas ain’t got my lady money.”

In the meantime, Weezy is readying the release of his new video for “6 Foot 7 Foot,” the first single from his forthcoming album, Tha Carter IV.  The clip will premiere on MTV tomorrow night (March 3) at 7:54 p.m. EST.—Elan Mancini
