Lil Wayne feat. Jadakiss and Drake, “It’s Good” (Jay-Z Diss) (Lyrics)

24 Aug

Kiss does his usual. Drake raps like he’s both Wayne and Weezy’s friend. But it’s when Weezy takes exception to Jay-Z’s “H.A.M.” couplet — I’m like “Really, half a billi? Nigga, really?” You got baby money / Keep it real wit’ niggas, niggas ain’t got my lady money — and gets greasy that “It’s Good” takes off. Sure, he lets his chance to headshot Hov slip late (“I lay ’em down, Tempur-Pedic” happens), but this is your “Jay-Z diss” off the now-leaked The Carter IV, and Wayne will sell records off of this song.

So, uh, good for you, Weezy. “It’s Good” lyrics after the jump. Continue reading

Lil Wayne feat. Drake, “She Will” (Lyrics + MP3)

12 Aug

Lil Wayne has an album coming out at the end of the month, which you could be forgiven for forgetting, despite it being part of his sequence of The Carter albums and containing smash singles “6 Foot 7 Foot” and “How to Love”: C4 is the rare rap album that seems bigger on radio than the Internet,  and has been dwarfed by Watch The Throne. “She Will,” in that context, seems like an effort by Weezy to ride the cometary Drake’s tail back to whatever level of Internet hype/discussion he thinks he should inhabit. You tell me: Does it work?

Young Jeezy feat. Lil Wayne, “Ballin'” (Lyrics + MP3)

12 Apr

Jeezy and Wayne hook up to make people say “Hey, so Thug Motivation 103 might not be completely worthless.” And everyone in the mainstream trap is chasing Lex Luger, including whoever the Lil Lody who produced this is. Hook isn’t quite big enough, but this will do, though I’m imagining that Jeezy purloining Jay’s “Light Up” lines doesn’t help and that the “Last year I made a hundred million dollars flat” bar will be debunked.

Lil Wayne, “Green and Yellow” (Lyrics + MP3)

3 Feb

Throw it up, touchdown on Ike Taylor

Longtime Green Bay Packers fan Weezy drops a freestyle over “Black and Yellow” to back the Pack before Super Bowl XLV. It’s not the damage Wayne could do to “Black and Yellow” (he’s aping Wiz’s flow a little too neatly for my taste, and doesn’t use the defecatory exploits of Najeh Davenport like he could have), but as a Packers fan, it’s nice to have Weezy doing the soundtrack to a Super Bowl berth.

Nicki Minaj feat. Lil Wayne, “Roman’s Revenge 2.0 (Remix)” (Lyrics + MP3)

17 Jan

Nicki needs a new art director.

Young Tunafish’s verse over Roman Zolansky’s missive to the misses of rap didn’t get slapped on before Pink Friday because of that stint on Rikers, and that’s okay. This is Weezy swinging and missing at the “We Takin’ Over” flow, though he begins and ends strongly (“Foie, gras, I hear you ducks is quackin'”), and Nicki’s verses are the same as the original “Roman’s Revenge.”

Low-key change that will bug me? The chorus has one less “Rahh” in the first four bars. It’s subtle, but it weakens the menace that the longer buildup had.

Oh, and “Old-ass rappers” is probably a shot at Jay, and might be a response to the “Really, nigga, you got Baby money” line on “H.A.M.” that a Forbes (!?) writer fingered as a diss, and who on Earth could care at this point is beyond me.

Download the “Roman’s Revenge 2.0” MP3 via Karen Civil and X. Update: Download the official “Roman’s Revenge (Remix)” via YouHeardThatNew.

“Roman’s Revenge 2.0” lyrics after the jump; the official remix has slightly different lyrics, including more “Rahh” in the hook and the hook between the second and third verses moving to after the third verse, and the restoration of the interlude in which Nicki deploys the mother of her male alter ego to chide the talkers, except it’s “You and this boy Lil Weezy.” And that’s better, I guess.
