lil wayne is mad that everyone realized how mediocre the carter IV was and moved on, while people are still praising the throne and will be for a long time.

Jay-z passed the torch down to wayne on "the carter 3" and since then weezy has done nothing but insult music with bullshit like the carter 4 and now taking shots at hova? The Throne should just destroy this asshole. maybe it will make him sit down and write a good song again.

- RIP, Whitney and Alori
- As far as the Otis beat goes, I'm not all that surprised.
- Weezy is closing in on Game territory, what with these inexplicable dumbass shots at Jay.
- Blue Ivy is adorable.
- I'm probably in the minority, but I think new Timbaland project should be cool if he doesn't attempt to rap.

luv this meme

for what it's worth, jay-z started it this time, haha.

- real shit man, i think "otis" is so under-appreciated on WTT. minimalist beat, unbelievably great sample, no hook and two of hip-hop's greats singing about wealth in some of the more unique ways i've heard in years. i mean, a maybach bumper sticker that reads "what would hova do?" GAME OVER.
- B I C is indeed a qt pie. but how does that kid belong to jay? CONTROVERSY!
- agreed on timbaland. even his beats fell off, unfortunately. shock value 2...plz.

I don't understand Wayne anymore. Is he REALLY off of drugs?

there's no other viable explanation. he put some of the most prolific music out during the carter III era, and was heavy into his drug usage during TCII. all of a sudden, there's a drug ban and TC4 is one of the worst things he's ever done? and in a discography with rebirth and human being, that's saying a lot.

I forget who it was explaining it, maybe it was the Def Jam A&R, but he said that 'Ye made "Otis" when they were supposed to be boarding a plane, and made everyone wait for him to make it real quick, and Jay-Z was watching one of the Heat vs Mavericks games, and by the time the beat was made, Jay-Z already had all his lyrics ready.

The line is in "H.A.M." haha but yeah, I'm pretty sure your rankings in net worth are right.

But to contradict what was said about who started it, Birdman was the one talking down on Jay-Z's worth (although granted, this was maybe a year before "H.A.M." actually came out).
