Looking like a king on his throne… Lil Wayne is featured on the latest cover of VIBE magazine speaking on coming for Jay-Z and competing with Drake.
VIBE: You say competition is for the “old guys,” but it sounds like you’re going at Jay-Z with that line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your b—-h, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.” Are we looking at it the wrong way?
LIL WAYNE: I know for a fact, music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. If I know that for a fact, I can never be upset about someone’s reaction to it. I’m not gonna say I don’t know what will happen before I say it [on record]. I do know what will happen. I am aware of it. It is what it is.
So music is about perception but then you come back with a threat and that’s perception as well – so it just is what it is!
VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote andb performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”?
LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not [just] a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.
Lil Tune-chi is off the lean and clear! There is no way he can compete with his own artist – no matter what Drake does, Lil Wayne is going to get a check!
