Lil Wayne stopped by Drink Champs to promo his new album Funeral.
A theme of the interview was the competitive nature of Hip Hop. In one segment, Wayne explained how he's prepared to take the head off of his artist and friend Drake anytime Drizzy is on a track with him.
In another, NORE told Wayne for the first time that when JAY-Z heard Wayne's 2006 "Dough Is What I Got" freestyle over "Show Me What You Got," Hov didn't know what to do.
“When he rapped on ‘Show Me What You Got,’ I had to take a long walk and look at myself in the mirror," N.O.R.E. remembered Jay texting him. “I said, ‘Are you sure you still got this?’
"He didn’t say that part,” Weezy responded. “He just let me know, ‘Boy, you’re coming for me.'"
Wayne's Hov subs on "Dough Is What I Got" sparked some soft beef between the rappers, but that's long been cleared up.
"I can't let another single word go without saying how genuine and how much of a man that guy is," Wayne said of JAY during his Drink Champs interview. "That's a real man right there. What he was doing was he was just trying to help in any form or fashion," Wayne continued, likely talking about his longstanding lawsuit with Cash Money, as Hov stepped in to help Wayne in any way possible. "So he was like, 'If I gotta sign your mom, man, whatever I gotta do to help you out in your situation that you're going through right now.' He was like 'I know it's embarrassing. They got s--t all public. What I wanna do is make sure you're straight as a man."
