Lil Wayne told the story of JAY-Z trying to sign him back in the day.

"This is years ago," he said during a radio interview. "First of all, he was at [his club] the 40/40 in the day time. When I got up there it was Denzel [Washington], it was Derek Jeter. I was like 'This is his click? 'And they up there laughing at jokes I just don't get, I'm mean laughing loud. He literally sat me down next to him, and this where all that’s going on at, and he sat me right here. Like, ‘You ain’t a part of this,’ you know? And he would talk to me on the side after every joke. That man offered me 175 [thousand]."

Wayne wasn't impressed with the offer, which would barely cover his dental work. But it's all good now, and before clearing up things with Birdman this summer, Wayne had made noise about signing with Hov and Roc.

What do you think Wayne's career would've looked like today if he wouldn't signed with Jay?
