Before the world knew who Drake was, Lil Wayne made his way back to the forefront of the game, but that wasn’t good enough. Watching Jay-Z do what he did, Lil Wayne wanted that status for himself. What happened was Lil Wayne taking shots at Jay-Z, leading some to believe there was beef between the two.
Jay-Z shut all of this down and featured Lil Wayne on “Hello Brooklyn” off American Gangster. When he returned with The Blueprint 3, Jay-Z featured Drake and shouted Lil Wayne out several times. Birdman began taking shots at Jay-Z for various reasons, saying they had more money and that Tha Carter III tops The Blueprint 3.
Drake returned the favor to Jay-Z, featuring him on his Thank Me Later debut and continuing to befriend him. Lil Wayne took major shots at Jay-Z in 2011 that Drake distanced himself from. Jay-Z provided insight on what happened with him and Birdman and Drake spoke on his position yesterday with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez.
