Lil Wayne Covers VIBE
Lil Wayne is the latest story for an issue of VIBE magazine now that he’s gracing their Oct/Nov cover.
In it we see him talk about the competition in the rap game—or rather the lack thereof.
“There’s no competition [with any artists]. Music isn’t about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy… Everybody just happy to do music these days. There are no problems. That Isht died a long time ago with them old-A$$ rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys.”
VIBE also made sure to ask about his Jay-Z diss on the track It’s Good.”
“VIBE: You say competition is for the “old guys,” but it sounds like you’re going at Jay-Z with that line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your Itchbay, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.” Are we looking at it the wrong way?
LIL WAYNE: I know for a fact, music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. If I know that for a fact, I can never be upset about someone’s reaction to it. I’m not gonna say I don’t know what will happen before I say it [on record]. I do know what will happen. I am aware of it. It is what it is.”
