The LOX's Jadakiss has stepped forward to disassociate himself from Lil Wayne's "I'm Good" record, despite appearing on it, which takes shots at Jay-Z.
Hitting up Twitter, Kiss said his verse was submitted 90 days ago.
"RT @LeRonCrowd: F*ck that sh*t Wayne&Drake was talkin bout!So we gon act like @Therealkiss Didn't Kill that ...http://tmi.me/eWlBl," Kiss tweeted August 24th.
"Yall hating a** c*cksuckers better chill..they only sent me a track wit NO verses and I recorded that verse 3 months ago! #leavemeoutofit"
"When I DISS n*ggas or have a problem Wit ANY RAPPER I SAY THere NAMES without hesitation and YALL know this already!"
"On my way back to NY,pardon the outburst but N*ggas Know Better! #anybodycangetit" (Jadakiss' Twitter)
Yesterday, Wayne's Carter IV track leaked online with his verse taking aim at Jay.
"Talkin' 'bout baby money, I gotcha baby money," Wayne raps. "Kidnap your b*tch get that how much you love your lady money / I know you fake, n*gga / Press your brakes, n*gga / I'll take you out, that's a date, n*gga / I'm a grown a** blood, stop playing with me / Play a**hole, and get an a** whippin' / I think you pussycat, hello kitty." ("It's Good")
In March, Wayne offered his initial take of Jay's "Baby Money" reference from "H.A.M."
According to Weezy, who heard the track personally through Kanye West, he isn't looking to start another competition with Jay. Wayne told MTV News that he didn't ask 'Ye about the alleged dig: "I wouldn't ask him about a Jay-Z line because he's not Jay-Z." That doesn't mean Wayne wouldn't respond to the line, even if he hasn't returned fire just yet. "Me and my wit, given my wit, I would probably play off of it," Wayne explained. "But I wouldn't make it a competition, because actually, the subject that he's talking about in that line, I can't box with the card. I'd be the first one to tell you that, given my wit, and the type of person that I am, I'd capitalize and I'd play off of it. Yeah, I definitely would." (MTV)
In February, reports suggested Jay was taking a subliminal shot at Cash Money on "H.A.M."
"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, Beyonce took in a whopping $87 million by our last annual count, more than any rapper -- and more than Jay-Z and Lil Wayne combined. (Forbes)
