Birdman says Lil’ Wayne is #1 because he makes MORE MONEY than Jay-Z!

birdmansnap 102009 Birdman says Lil Wayne is #1 because he makes MORE MONEY than Jay Z!

In a recent interview with TropicalTV, rapper Birdman spoke his mind about who the real #1 MC is based on wealth and lyricism…

“I don’t think he’s the #1 MC. In any kind of way. Wayne is the best, he do the most and he makes the most money. I don’t think no niggas in the business makes more money than us. So how could you be the best if you don’t make the most money? And you don’t do the most? Lyrically, be for real man, can’t nobody fuck with Wayne. To me, if you’re #1 and you’re not no money, it don’t mean nothing. That’s #1 to me. Fuck all that rap shit. You heard me? You got COLD rappers who ain’t never been heard. And then you got niggas who really can’t rap and making money. It’s about who’s making the most money to me, I don’t give a fuck about the rest of that shit.”

So Birdman… Jay-Z makes no money? We don’t recall ever seeing Lil’ Wayne top the Forbes list. Now don’t get this wrong, Lil’ Wayne is a HOT RAPPER, but we don’t feel that he’s the HOTTEST if you’re talking about a combination of money + music. Yes, Lil’ Wayne might make more from his music but Jay-Z makes more from his brand, which came from music.

I’m talkin’ bout music I ain’t talkin’ bout rap
You talkin’ bout who’s hot I ain’t talkin’ bout that
The conversation is changed Lets yap about that
I don’t run rap no more I run the map
-Jay-Z “What We Talkin’ About”

Lil Wayne wishes he could be like Jay-Z. Immitation is the highest form of flattery, but to have your homo dad out there claiming something you’re not is just tacky!

Okay.. did he just contradict himself? He said you got niggas who “really can’t rap and making money”.. So if they made more money then Wayne (just hypothetically speaking), but they couldn’t rap.. but they STILL made more money than Wayne, would that make them hotter than him? Probably not. He’s a lame. And yeah, I think Jay-Z has some money.

before y’all start shittin on wayne gotdamn…lets consider where this came from. Birdman…the nigga Wayne writes for. He write all that nigga verses. So who the fuck is Birdman other than a name at Cash Money. Nigga need to STFU. Cause even Wayne knows he’s not better than Hov.

Birdman is crazy. Lil Wayne is hot, but Jay has been hot since 95. and Im sure Jay is bringin in more money yearly than wayne, and don’t have to work as hard. Plus Wayne didnt’ get hot until he started rapping like Jay.

P.S. Wayne should take a break, he puts out so much music, that I get tired of hearing him. He should lay low for a year or so.

True Wayne is hot !!!!!!!! But lets get it right he ain’t F@#&ing with Jay in No way when he can go set on the sofa with the Big O, or Go to the White House not just talked about at the White House. Man baby starting some shit I hope this does not start a war with them. I think that is what baby want so he can get his money up. If you look at it being about money Jay would be Bill Gates and Cash Money would be Oprah don’t get me wrong she got Money but Bill has More. I don’t get Dropped I drop the Lables ( what other N!&&@ could say that and be on top when he drop them)

lil wayne shyt is recycled over and over and over again! If you really sit back and listen to his shyt he is sayin the same shyt just backwards or the verse is rephrased but YET AND STILL saying the same shyt. I dont care for Jay-Z at all cuz I think he is too cocky and arrogant BUT I aint gon front he is hot and waaaaayyy better than weezy. Jayz got the music, the clothing line, the b-ball team, and prolly other shyt we dont know about. what wayne got? Music to a certain extent. Birdman needs to sit his ass down and come out wit a hot album for a change. Plain and simple.

LOL…HAVE BIRDMAN BEEN DRINKING SOME OF WAYNES SY-SURP..LOL..HE JUST CONTRADICTED HIS SELF. MONEY TO ME DOES NOT MAKE A GREAT RAPPER. THERE IS PLENTY OF UNDERGROUND RAPPERS OUT HERE THAT IS MORE TALENTED THAN THE ONES WHO ARE POPULAR AND MAKING MONEY MAIN STREAM. JAY Z IS MAKING MORE MONEY THAN WAYNE ALL AROUND FROM A BUSINESS PERSPECTIVE. BUT AS FAR AS MUSIC WISE WAYNE IS MAKING MORE MONEY THAN JAY Z IN THAT AREA. AS FAR AS WHO IS THE BEST RAPPER AND LYRISIST OUT OF THE TWO. EVEN THOUGH SOME OF WAYNES LYRICS ARE BEGINNING TO SOUND A LIL WATERED DOWN WHEN HE IS TOO HIGH..LOL…BUT WHEN HE AINT TOO HIGH..LOL..HE IS HANDS DOWN A BETTER RAPPER AND LYRICIST THAN JAY Z!!

Since when did lil Waynes money become we. He must be talking about himself when talk about rappers making money and cant rap. Not one of birdman songs make any sense.

Birdman and his old ass needs to sit down. Like honestly I dont even like Weezy anymore. All his music is starting to sound the same seriously…. thank god they got Drake and the rest of the Young Money crew. Jay-Z is that boy forreal. Numbers dont lie:)

LMAOOO…Dat ninja birdman is stupid. Comparing to how much material Wayne puts out which is an whole lot of mixtapes n features on other songs and ghost writing, to Jay-Z just havin a couple of features and an album, He makes about the same as Wayne, Wayne is working mad hard, yet he’s slighty makin more money dan Jay from song only. Considering the fact that Jay-Z is an entrepreneur every sense of the word, Wayne’s bankroll cant really compare. Plus Jay makin money off Kanye West who does exactly wat Wayne does. Same grind. There’s no way Wayne can make more money dan Jay.

Don’t get me wrong HOV is on Point….but I’m sensing some made Wayne haters. Lil Wayne is #1 Right now. And to be honest Lil wayne is making more than HOV is right now. And for all those on Drake d*ck.. who you think got him where he’s at now. Lyrically he’ll never be wayne. Drake throws out the same kinda lyrics Wayne does. They’re all good rappers though. So stop hatin seriously. Little fun fact…HOV’S biggest sales week ever was 680,000. As you know Wayne sold over a million in one week. Think about it!
