      Jay-Z and Lil’ Wayne have traded subliminal disses back and forth in the recent past. How then did the two “Greatest Rapper Alive” contesters wind up on “Hello Brooklyn 2,” one of only three collaborative tracks on Jay-Z’s American Gangster? Turns out Jay-Z doesn’t consider the joint much of a collaboration at all.

 

      Wayne‘s camp sent the record and it was done,” Jay explained to MTV News recently. “So it wasn’t like a collaboration thing. It was done already…It’s more of a great record than a lyrical slugfest. It’s more a creative, great record than two guys spitting. “Success” (with Nas) is more of what people wanna look at when you judge that type of collaborative stuff. It’s me and Nas going at it.”

 

      Wayne confirmed that track was already packaged before Jay-Z asked to use it for his album. It was previously recorded for Tha Carter III, but Weezy says he decided to relinquish it because Jay is the “king.”

  7. you dumbass bama,you are segregating this music just like those devils taught your noose loving ass,stay focused man!you are a germ too!niggas really do hate niggas!!!hip hop is about to be dead with you spreading this virus like many others.wack is now invisible because rap now is obviously any fucking thing you say will sell,even with no substance or a bit of intellect.rock,alternative,country music has no problems in the industry.we fucking do not know how to save something we created because we are fucking selfish.hip hop/rap record sales are down and signing new artist are as well meaning that people are getting single deals and the only reason alot of people are still eating is because ringtones

  8. YOU DAMN RIGHT IM MAD AS HELL FIRST OFF, IF WAYNE WAS FROM THE NORTH WE WOULDNT SCREAM THAT SHIT…NONE OF THE EAST RAPPERS(THAT I KNOW OF) GOT CAUGHT OUT THERE DOING SOME FUGAZI SHIT…SINCE WHEN DID YOU SEE DMX OR METHOD MAN KISSING A NIGGA CALLING HIM HIS DADDY WIFING A WHORE AND PROUDLY MAKING A RECORD ABOUT IT???

AND NIGGER.

    YUAH.

  9. I’m not from the south or north, I’m from chicago, but lil wayne cannot see Jay-z on any level. Little wayne is nice, don’t get me wrong, but he isn’t even the best in the south. T.I. and ludacris would get with this dude on the mic. And lil wayne is one most one domitional rapper I ever heard. This dude can spit but he don’t rap about shit. Jay is a legend, this dude is far from that. It ain’t got shit to do with the south because I love the south.

  10. all yall some dickheads! wayne been rappin nationwide for 10 years now i think it’s more than a phase and he was spittin that shit b4 gillie. as u practice u should perfect ya craft as he did. nas and jay kings umm no. nas aight jay slowly gettin tired of rapping or at least his flow been sounding like it. and if we talking bout that song on the hip hop awards wayne shit suck 2.

  11. The south don’t run nothin… once and for all, neither east or west. The best artists are just those with best flows, imagination, creativity and consistancy. That means for me that you can put Lil Wayne in that category (only just) that you would have Nas and Jay-Z. We need to stop getting territorial over this. It aint even belong to black folk. We just built it for them.

  12. I think right now Lil wayne is the best MC out, but he is not the best MC of all time. My boy JADAKISS of the Lox would murder both wayne and jay z anytime. PS Shout out to my people in new jersey aka brick city. Ya boy’s coming home pretty soon

  13. wayne is better than jay hands down, like jordan and kobe. kobe is the best ever, but will take his hat off to jordan. u lame niggas understand wayne now?

  14. your comparing collage professor to a 3rd grader. Weezy is ight, but Jay is a beast. Weezy don’t have the brains or swagger to come at the king. It’s not quanity it’s quality. Nobody from the east likes rappers just because there from the east. WTF? Thats something you southern catz do. I mean Whane is the closest artist you got to compare to Jay? Get the fuck outta here…

  15. Jay is the King got a Ni**a from New Orleans singing about Brooklyn. Talking about he’s ready to leave New Orleans for Brooklyn and the song with NAS Is aight up until Nas starts to spit he’s off beat like a mother fu*ker NAS is Garbage He needs to retire.
