WHAT DID HE SAY? Drake Responds To Lil Wayne’s Diss At Jay-Z

While out in L.A. for the BMI Urban Awards, MTV News caught up with Drake on the red carpet. Drizzy commented on Lil Wayne’s diss aimed at Jay-Z on Weezy’s track “It’s Good” Ft. Drake and Jadakiss. Drizzy followed Jadakiss footsteps and doesn’t want to be involved.

I just got a beat and did a verse over it,” says Drake. “Whatever any other individual has to say, you have to ask the man 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.”

At the end of the day, rap is an individual art,” he said. “You express yourself and whatever you wanna say, you say it, so I guess that’s a question for Wayne more than me.”-Drake

Lil Wayne: Tha Carter IV Leaked Online, “She Will” Debuts On Hot 100, Plus Cortez Bryant & Birdman Speak On TC4

Lil Wayne‘s latest single “She Will” Ft. Drake has debuted at #3 on Billboard‘s Hot 100. The track is off Weezy’s upcoming LP Tha Carter IV. This is Weezy’s highest-ever opening rank on the chart. In other Weezy news, just like most major Hip-Hop albums, Tha Carter IV leaked online.

Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, spoke to Rolling Stone on August 24th, and was feeling very confident that Weezy’s new album wouldn’t leak. “I think we’re lucky this timeWe held it until the last moment we could, and we didn’t send any songs or beats by e-mail – we used iChat, or a person had to get on a plane to share music…I’m knocking on wood before I get off the phone with you and it’s all over the Internet.”

Unfortunately, they weren’t too lucky because the album leaked hours after Bryant got off the phone with Rolling Stone.

Birdman speaks on Tha Carter 4

This is one of the biggest releases of the year, and we wanted to make sure that everybody got to play their part at the same time.

Birdman on wanting to sell a million-plus in the first week and being okay with leaks.

The goal is to sell a million-plus copies,” he explains. Birdman says he’s actually okay with leaks, to a point. “I can deal with it for short period of time. It’s when you have a leak out for a long time that it’s crazy.”

Tha Carter IV will go on sale digitally on iTunes at midnight on August 29th.
