Throwback Friday: DMX, Irv Gotti & Jay-Z Throwing Up Their Middle Finger Inside The Studio

Back in 1998, platinum-selling rapper DMX, record producer Irv Gotti and music mogul Jay-Z were spotted inside of Sony Studios in NYC. This was considered the Golden Years of Hip-Hop. DMX is currently touring the states and is in the studio working on his comeback album. Jay-Z will be embarking on a United State “The Throne” tour with Kanye West, this Fall. As far as Irv Gotti, I haven’t heard anything about him lately. In the past, he produced  DMX’s “What’s My Name?,” Jay-Z’s “Can I Get A…”, and Ja Rule’s “Holla Holla”.

Front Page: Lil Wayne Gracing The Cover Of Vibe’s October/November Issue

YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne is covering the October/November issue of Vibe magazine. In the cover story, the New Orleans native talked about his competition, taking shots at Jay-Z, Drake being his competition and much more. The platinum-selling rapper latest album Tha Carter 4 was released back in August and sold almost one-million copies in the first week. Weezy also feel that there won’t be any repercussions behind what he said about Jay-Z. This issue also feature stories from Meek Mill, J. Cole, Pusha T, Common and other artists. Below are some excerpts:


“There’s no competition [with any artists]. Music isn’t about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy… Everybody just happy to do music these days. There are no problems. That shit died a long time ago with them old-ass rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys.”

VIBE: You say competition is for the “old guys,” but it sounds like you’re going at Jay-Z with that line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.” Are we looking at it the wrong way?

LIL WAYNE: I know for a fact, music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. If I know that for a fact, I can never be upset about someone’s reaction to it. I’m not gonna say I don’t know what will happen before I say it [on record]. I do know what will happen. I am aware of it. It is what it is.

VIBE: So you knew the repercussions of going after Jay before anything even happened?

LIL WAYNE: Well, I’m a man. I believe as a man you should know that. Every man should know the repercussions and consequences behind whatever they do before they do it. And of course, I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did.


VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote and performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”?

LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not [just] a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.
