Complex, December 2006

Later that year, when Jay-Z ended his pseudo-retirement with 2006’s Kingdom Come, he said he was “hip hop’s savior” on the title track. Wayne, who had in many ways filled the void Hov left, felt slighted. “I'm better than him. I'm 24 years old... I'm 13 years deep with five albums and 10 million records sold,” he told Complex magazine. "I don't like what he's saying about how he had to come back because hip hop's dead and we need him. What the f--- do you mean? If anything it's reborn, so he's probably having a problem with that. You left on a good note, and all of the artists were saying, 'Yo, this is Jay's house. He's the best.' Now he comes back and still thinks it's his house... It's not your house anymore, and I'm better than you."
