Agree Or Disagree?!?: Forbes Claims Jay-Z Dissed Baby In New Jawn With Kanye “H.A.M”

- By Bossip Staff

Last time we checked, Forbes provided us with the 411 on who is making the most money but it seems like they have added a new department to the company… Analyzing Jay-Z’s lyrics. According to Forbes, Jay-Z insulted Baby, CEO of the Cash Money Gang, with this line:

Ni**az fantasize about the sh*t that I do daily, Like these rappers rap about all the sh*t that I do really? I’m like… “Really Half a Billi Ni**a, Really You Got BABY Money”

Keep it real with Ni**az, Ni**az ain’t got my lady money!

Now… we are not exactly sure what made Forbes think that they are experts on Jay-Z lyrics but they went for it. Take a look at what they had to say:

On the track, released on Kanye’s Facebook page early Tuesday morning, Jay-Z complains that his competitors merely fantasize about what he does on a daily basis — including, but not limited to, schmoozing with Warren Buffet and Steve Forbes. He also cites this writer’s $450 million valuation of his personal net worth, rounding up slightly to “half a billie,” before taking a shot at a fellow Hip-Hop Cash King or two: “Really, you got baby money.”

The line is a double entendre meant both as a general reference to the small amount of money that other rappers have in comparison to Jay-Z, and as a specific reference to the wealth of rapper Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter, also known as “Weezy Baby,” and fellow New Orleans rapper and record executive Brian “Birdman” Williams, also known as “Baby.”

The latter recently claimed the former had more money than Jay-Z, which is, well, simply not true. Jay-Z earned $63 million dollars last year, tops on our list of hip-hop’s top earners, while Lil Wayne banked $20 million. Birdman did not make the list.

Perhaps the best line on Jay-Z’s new track is a verifiable and, one might say progressive, boast: “(You) ain’t got my lady’s money!”

Indeed, Beyoncé took in a whopping $87 million by our last annual count, more than any rapper — and more than Jay-Z and Lil Wayne combined.

So… What are your thoughts??? Do you think Jay-Z is dissing Baby or…. Is he speaking on all these flagrant a** wack a** rappers walking around spitting about making millions but they can’t even sell 100K albums….talking about Aston Martins and Maybachs… We Won’t Go There!!!!

  • Wow...,

    Jay is stuck on himself… He didn’t have to go there…. A lot of “rappers” rap about things they don’t have or wish they had… I’m sick of all this beefing…. The industry needs to stick to one thing and that’s music… Stop with all the dissing… Life is too short… If you got it good if you don’t that’s still good… We all should support one another….

    • Jo-Jo

      Also, just b/c Baby didn’t make as much as Jay-Z last year doesn’t mean that Baby doesn’t have as much or more money than Jay-Z. Ummm…hello!!!….the amount of money one has is the SUM of the money they’ve made over the years (minus what they’ve spent, of course). Telling us what each artist made last year is only telling us part of the story.

    • Jordan

      sounds more to me like him giving props…like…”really you got BABY money?” and then saying..”you ain’t even got my lady money!”

  • nymphis

  • J. Reezy

    @wow, hip hop has always been about “dissing” each other. Going back to the early 80’s. Its friendly competition to see whose better. No guns or talk of killing was said in that verse, so Jay just put Baby in his place, that’s all. Every job has competition, and rapping is their job..

  • get em paid

    Oh well it ain’t like I contributed to the cause, their statement or their wealth lol

  • brother3xxx


    • mouth

      Exactly. Wonder if the writer of the article talked to Jay to see if he was speaking about anyone in particular.

      Prob not. They just started some drama, gave us something to pull them apart for. Something to dog BOTH of them about.

      They’re entertainers. D@mn.

      “Willieeeee… Come here Willie.”

  • s.b.s

    U know what I always wondere why Birdman never was on the Forbes list??? he clearly makes alot of money… interesting and Lil wayne DAMN sure ont got more money than Jay-Z all he does is selling records, and has a record label no buasiness deals, no endorsments, i mean he has way more than me but just sayin lol

  • Sitting Pretty

    Agree with Miami Chick 100%

  • Greeneyedbandit

    If he ever fall,it will be H.A.M. And,@Miami Chick,i agree.

  • #teambreezy

    Okay but lil wanye made 20 million behind bars..he was locked up SOOOOOOOO i think thats good.who else is doing that?

  • this is it

    One of the most observant comments I have seen on this site. You hit it right on the head.

  • this is it

    “Really, you got baby money.”

    To me it sounds like he is asking these so called ballers do they really got money like baby. IDK.

  • kslim1

    Only N***** brag about having material shit…I think Jay won’t be happy until he thinks everyone is hating on him. Guess what, I personally could careless about the millions of dollars that he could never use even if he died at 80…you can’t take it with you. EPIC FAIL.

  • Matix B

    I haven’t paid attention to Jay-Z in over ten years, but when I do he’s always rapping about the same shyt..OK we know you are RICH and your “wife” is richer, but can you come up with some different content please? He’s so braggy braggy it’s comical. If Jay-Z was so secure in his position you wouldn’t have to keep reminding people about his clout. SMFH.

    • Matix B

      *** He ***

    • ReALiSt

      What are those 38DDz saying, girlie??

  • MXredJ

    If he said “yall got birdman baby money ” then I would say he took shots… but once again the media is making nothing into something… yadda yadda !!!
    Birdman I know for a fact has millions of millions… no beef here..ppl just commenting because they dnt like Jay because of the way the media talks about him now … that devil ish is for the birds… its not true ..listen to still ghetto by jay..

  • Well Well

    I believe no matter how much money Birdman and Wayne make, they will never be on the cover of Forbes. It is all about marketing and presentation to the public majority and having the ability to “crossover”. I think Wayne and Birdman’s outward appearance and persona will keep them from being recognized by Forbes and Warren Buffet.

  • Me

    I thought birdmans net worth was 400mil and Jay Z was 450 mil! Either way Jay had all these deals and endorsement. All Baby had was Wayne and he is still close to Jay when it comes to money! Baby has cash believe that!

  • Stac

    @ Miami hit the nail on the head.

  • look here mane

    all thoz tatz on baby’s dome, he may have a serious case of ink piosoning. tha nucca talk like hov cheeze ain’t major.

  • Jo-Jo

    Well-said!! Co-sign 100%!!
