Carter v. Carter: Lil Wayne and Jay-Z's Complicated History

Why does this all sound familiar? We all remember that Lil Wayne threw shots at Jay-Z on "I'm Good," off Tha Carter IV, calling him "p---y," threatening to "take him out" and even vowing to kidnap Beyoncé. And now he dissed Jay and Ye's duo, The Throne, at the YMCMB pre-Grammys party this past Saturday (Feb. 11). But how did it come to this? Just three years ago, the two rap titans were cheesing on stage together at the Grammys during their performance of T.I.'s "Swagga Like Us." But their on-again, off-again rapport goes back years, through a roller-coaster ride of subliminal on-wax disses, dope collabos, interview insults and mutual praise. Click on for an in-depth history of Jay-Z and Lil Wayne's love-hate relationship. —Alex Gale
