Carter v. Carter: Lil Wayne and Jay-Z's Complicated History
Birdman Jumps In
Things seemed to be all gravy again between Jay and Wayne until Birdman, CEO of Cash Money Records and Wayne’s adopted father, stepped in. "I don't think [Jay-Z] is the number one MC in no kind of way," he told Tropical TV. "Wayne's the best. He do the most and he make the most money. I don't think no n---- in the business make more money than us. How can you be the best if you don't make the most money? And you don't do the most? Lyrically, come on man, be for real, can't nobody f--- with Wayne... If you number one and you ain't getting no money it don't mean nothing." Damn — it was all good just a week ago.
