Lil Wayne Speaks On Alleged Jay-Z “H.A.M.” Diss x Signing Drake & Nicki Minaj

Wed, Mar 2, 2011 by

In the video above, Lil Wayne speaks to MTV‘s Sway about Jay-Z’s alleged diss on the “H.A.M.” record with Kanye West. Weezy says he didn’t ask Ye about the Jay “baby money” line, because he is not Jay-Z. After the jump, you can see some more footage from Tunechi and Sway’s interview were Wayne discusses about signing Drake and Nicki Minaj to Young Mula.

“The first thing I said was this kid’s a superstar,” Weezy told MTV News about his introduction to Drizzy. “I don’t think you can remember, but I did some interviews back then when they were asking me about him and I said he’s better than me. I can’t sing. I can make a song, but this kid has the actual R&B presence. Then he’s one of the dopest lyricists. That right there, he has a welcoming appearance. I knew he was something bigger than something I had envisioned for my company when I ran into this kid. I was thinking I’m going to put my people on and we’re going to be all right, but then when I ran into this kid, I was like, this a superstar, he’s got a chance to make my company something for real, something to be thought of, to be remembered.”

“I can’t front, I just thought she was going to be the new female MC that none of these other female MCs can touch,” Wayne said about Nicki. “But now, she’s blossomed into a megastar with this new attitude and this style. Now when I talk to her, I just tell her, ‘Do what you do, baby.’ I used to be able to go into the studio and say, ‘Nah, don’t say that, don’t say that.’ You know, ‘That was better.’ Now, do what you do, baby. I don’t have a clue about what you’re doing right now, but it’s working, do it.”

I Could Be Wrong Though… Not Into Critically Analyzin What People Say… Im Sure It’s About Birdman Though So Weezy Shall Do What He Does And Do The Beat On D4 Ha Ha

  • still best rite now!!

    no, he saying Jay does have the most money, he cant compete with him thier but he can come back with a witty response as an emcee

  • Noc

    probably just means he consideres himself sufficiently business savvy to know the exposure and buzz following the line, diss or not, will help earn him bucks / capital. hence undermining the diss itself.

  • ME

    exactly @still best rite now!!

  • 30504

    so basically he’s not trippin off it???

  • just the way he ended the interview you can tell he has something up his sleeve for jay-z and he turn niggas into superstars what jay-z artist is a superstar????????

  • bloodbro

    fuck it
    tomorrow we get 6’7″ baby

  • Bs&Nino

    When he says he will capitalize off it he’s saying that he will use it like a publicity stunt.
    I don’t even think Wayne is worried about what Jay is saying anyways

  • Rio904

    he sayin Real G’s move in silence like lasagna…..he comin wit somethin crazy soon getem weezy lol..

  • DjDuff

    When he says he’ll capitalize off it, he means he’ll come back with a verse in contradiction or in other words get Jay Z back.

  • GoldPanda

    capitalize and play off of it .. meaning he’ll take the beat .. make it 10x better .. go at jay z with witty punchlines , metaphors , sarcasm , and smoke a cigar and go back to doing himself

  • weezy805

    what i think he means is…hes gonna use what jay says and diss him right back hes the type to diss back to what he says

  • kurtis-weezy

    Fuck jay-z bulls just pissed that ymcmb bulls got their shit right and that he fuckin sucks , waynes gonna fuckin come back and shit in jay-z’s pillow case. hahahaha birdmans probably shits out more money than jay-z has ever seen.

  • effuhaterz

    weezyfire how do yu kno about whats on d4 already

  • this is dope.

  • ricardo laguna

    fuck jay z the only thing good is that he fucks beyonce beyonce makes love to the rest but nothing more to fuck jay z lil wayne is the best

  • ILH

    This is what Merriam-Webster has under “Capitalize” – intransitive verb – ******to gain by turning something to advantage****** : (see also) profit (I added the little stars for emphasis)

    Which is a good example of the sense that Wayne was using the word in.

  • weeazy

    baby money could be anything. i think its a stretch to call that a diss.

  • DanYMCMB4ever

    Yo guys, but if we see in perspective Lil wayne makes more money than Jay-z if you look at the income coming from records sales only!! not from his rockfella and other businesss…so in fact, Jay doesnt make as much money as weezy just from his music production and sales!!!! the rest of the business is something anybody can do!!!

    YO feel me!!!

  • ZAY

    “Old ass rappers , I’m still tha shxt , Old ass pampers !”

  • gopackgo

    weezay i think you right ..like some people have said this interview is old now anyway they’ve already seen eachother at the game in l.a. and shook hands so it must not be nothing.*shrug*
