Lil Wayne ignited a firestorm of blog coverage and media talk on Aug. 24 when his latest song, “It’s Good,” which takes blatant shots at Jay-Z and his superstar wife Beyoncé, leaked to the web. Although many have wondered if Wayne has ignited another epic hip-hop battle, the skateboard Gremlin is saying just the opposite, claiming “there won’t be any repercussions” for the song.
In a recent interview with VIBE for their upcoming Oct./Nov. issue, Wayne spoke of his Drake and Jadakiss-assisted diss track, in which he raps, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your b—h, get that how much you love your lady money/ I know you fake, n—a.” Despite the (expected) reaction to “It’s Good,” Weezy confidently claimed that he had no regrets about the controversial track.
“I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did,” said Wayne. “I know for a fact music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can’t ever be upset about someone’s reaction,” said Wayne.
Wayne continued to elaborate, explaining that he understands the hype surrounding the song, but isn’t concerned with it, equating the track to any other song he’s made.
“I’m not going to say I don’t know what would happen, before I even say [something on record],” he explained. “I do know what will happen. I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.”
Well, it seems like these two hip-hop titans have enough respect for each other to indulge in some brazen, yet friendly competition. – nicholas robinson
