Lil Wayne has reportedly taken at hit at the Watch the Throne rapper, Jay-Z, in his latest track. It is assumed to be off his anticipated album, Tha Carter IV, Weezy spits his rhyme shamelessly.
The song--called Its Good--also features artists Drake and Jadakiss. You who are rich and whose troubles are few/ May come around to see my point of view/ What price the crown of the king on his throne?/ When you're chained in the dark all alone, the song opens.
I'm as real as they come, I follow the rules/ I'm still in the hood, but I probably should move/ Made enough money, I don't f*** around/ I just felt they needed me, so I stuck around, Jadakiss continues.
Please pardon my brother/ He's just angry at you n****s who don't have your heart in your rap s***/ And got too f***in comfy, cause we still f***in hungry, Drake raps.
Weezy takes the mic again seemingly targeting Jay-Z's track H.A.M on WTH. Talkin' about baby money, I got your baby money/ Kidnap your b****, get that how much you love your lady money. I know you fake n****, press your brakes n****/ I'll take you out, that's a date, n****.
In an interview with Vibe Magazine, Lil Wayne expressed that he does not anticipate confrontation with Jay-Z. I know there won't be any repercussions behind what I did. I know for a fact music is about perception. You can't do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can't ever be upset about someone's reaction.
I'm not going to say I don't know what would happen before I even say [something on record], he continued. I do know what will happen. I'm aware of it. But it is what it is.
Both stars have enough clout to hold there own in verses. Fans on Twitter are actually excited to see the two titans throw down in a rap battle.

Jay-Z is currently promoting his album, Watch the Throne, with Kanye West. Since Watch the Throne's release on August 8, the duo's promotion of the album has been highly unconventional. Instead of releasing a lead single for radio play before the drop of the album, Jay-Z and Kanye have skipped that tradition.
Some may argue that Jay-Z and Kanye West have enough clout to ignore the the typical radio rules entirely... In fact, Jay and Kanye talk about their greatness so much, it is almost as it they forgot to actually bring it to the album.
According to most critics, the album has its impressive moments. In spite of their large egos, Jay-Z and Kanye West are talented artists and bring great tracks to the table. But considering the hype surrounding their names, the album falls short.
Watch the Throne has sold 436,000 copies in its first week. It comes in second to Lady Gaga's Born This Way as the year's biggest debut. It fell short of what retailers expected to be 500,000 sold in the first week. The album is currently number 1 on iTunes and broke Coldplay's record for all-time greatest first week sales on the online store. It sold over 290,000 through iTunes. But, their first single, Otis, dropped down several spots on the BigChampagne's Ultimate Chart.
In spite of their names, Jay-Z and Kanye have some work to do if they want to keep their album on the top of the charts.
The Watch the Throne Tour begins on Sept. 22 in Detroit. 24 dates and several cities including Toronto, Chicago, San Jose, Los Angeles, Dallas, Boston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Vancouver and East Rutherford are on the list for tour stops--and reports suggest that there are more to come!
Lil Wayne's album, Tha Carter IV, is due later this summer. Catch Lil Wayne and Jay-Z on the VMAs Sunday!
