News of jabs on I'm Good, Drake Responds To Lil Wayne's Jay-Z Dis

LOS ANGELES -- If there is a Lil Wayne/Jay-Z beef brewing, Drake isn't indulging

Although he is featured on Weezy's "It's Good" -- the leaked Carter IV track that finds Lil Tunechi throwing a subliminal shot in Hov's direction -- Drizzy downplayed any involvement.
"I just got a beat and did a verse over it," Drake told MTV News from the red carpet for the BMI Urban Awards n L.A. on Friday before he accepted the award for Songwriter of the Year. "Whatever any other individual has to say, you have to ask the an himself. I just did what I know how to do. I just got on a record. I heard the beat, did a verse and heard the final product."

                                                                            On the song, VMA Nominee Wayne raps, "Talkin' 'bout Baby money? I got your Baby money/ Kidnap yo' bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money." To the casual listener, the line doesn't sound like much, but fanatics can connect the lyric directly to Jay-Z's jab on the Throne's "H.A.M."

It all started in 2009 when Cash Money CEO Bryan "Baby" Williams objected to Jay-Z topping MTV News' Hottest MCs list for that year. "I don't think he the number one MC, in no kinda way," Baby said, casting the first stone. "Wayne is the best, he do the most and he make the most money. I don't think no n---a in the business make more money than us."

It took a few years, but Hov returned fire at the top of this year when he and Kanye leaked their first Watch the Throne track, claiming not only that Birdman and Wayne weren't seeing Jay-Z-caliber bucks, but that financially, they couldn't even compare to his wife, Beyoncé. "I'm like, 'Really, half-a-billi?' N---a, really, you got Baby money/ Keep it real with n---as, n---as ain't got my lady money," Jay lyrically retorted.

Wayne hinted at retaliation when he sat down with MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway in March. "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 God. 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."
