Lil Wayne Covers VIBE

Bow down. Dwayne Carter’s got the Vibe (no Guy) as your highness takes the cover of the October/November issue of VIBE. Below are excerpts of his cover story.

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 bitch, 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. 

VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote and performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”? 

LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not [just] a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.

  • The pyaah

    That Drake question ruffled his feathers. “No competition, I’m the guys boss”. Ha! Face it Wayne, dude 1 up on you.

  • sealey

    Id be pissed at wayne for that comment if i was drake

  • m1

    he kind of shitted on drake.hes an asshole for that.

  • Dashing

    No shots fired at Drake. Drake knows the deal. Wayne is the President of Young Money. Wayne called him and signed him. Wayne was a HUGE part of the reason that we all know and heard Drake. (Maybe he coulda done it on his own, but maybe not) At any rate, Drake has never not deferred to Wayne so I doubt he’d take it any type of way.

    HAHAHA@the cover. Chris Rock “Hip-Hop’s glory days have passed”…AGREED ! This is the “Oh no don’t pay attention to Drake look at me” move with the ‘I mean, I’m the guy’s boss’.

  • Ink

    Yea that’s some preemptive shots fired at Drake. Lets be honest, tho, if Drake left YM it would be dead within 5 years. And by dead, I mean Murder Inc status.

  • BK Gunz

    WACKKKKKKKKKK Who takes VIBE seriously?

  • Tim Step

    Hip-Hop Covers are getting interesting. No Diss-Respect to YN lol

  • Careful

    “I’m just feeling like the Throne is for the taking… watch me take it.” -Drake

    You know, I always assumed that line was referring to Jay/Ye, but now that I think about it, I guess it’s possible that he’s talking about the Young Money throne. Not sure why you’d want that tho… it’s like being king of the island of misfit toys or some shit.

  • COLD DE/TH

    MY HERO! ANOTHER COVER FOR ME TO FRAME IN MY OFFICE! HOW TO LOVE!

  • Bg

    Wayne sort of sounds a little envious of Drake’s success and status. Like someone else said, I wouldn’t be happy with these comments if I were Drizzy

  • pap3rchazer

    damn, I think hip hop is moving so slow n boring, Em said it in 01-02, the mainstream rap game wouldve been dead if 50 didnt come on the scene n pumped some life to it.

  • Michelle

    Young Money needs Drake, Drake don’t need Young Money. That’s a fact jack.

    Weezy already knows Drake is better than him. He’s running scared http://bit.ly/hGH3at

  • Get Real

    I really like how he son’d Drake during the interview, “I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.” #dead Translation, “I have the power to stop Drake’s shine, so I’m not too worried about him.” Lol.

    (no guy)? did you mean no R.Kelly?…

  • 3rd Coast

    Damn Wayne a hater. He should’ve just said “Fuck Drake, he’ll never be better than me. I own him”. And for the record. Jas Prince discovered Drake and brought him to Wayne. If you know about Rap-A-Lot , Im pretty sure J.Prince is getting his due off them niggas.

  • James Allen

    True with that J.Prince statement, that’s why Drake always rap about lean, houston, and doing songs with Bun B. Give it 2-3 more years Drake will be the biggest thing in hiphop and leaves YM and YM will flop

  • Jaymalls

    Didn’t Kanyw wear that jacket??? Anyway @ZoomZoomDad-Otis cosign. That dude @Smoke screen came off like a bitch.

  • rahrahrah

    This is an interesting statement and an interesting position for the both of them. I’m trying to think of another situation like this, perhaps Eminem and 50cent, or Dre and Eminem. Perhaps he’s saying that he reaps financial success before his artist reaps financial success so all he wants is more success for his artist? That’s the most favorable spin that I’m able to put on it.

  • sway-z

    How’s this nigga the “boss” of Drake when Baby’s really the boss of him?

  • Word

    When did 964k become a milli??? You Wayne stans are delusional. Niggas dont ROUND UP and say he did a milli. In that case, Graduation did a Millie first week then but I dont hear nobody bragging about it. Know why? Cuz smart ppl know 900K =/= A Millie.

    Get Waynes head out your asses. C4 was decent. Congrats for the 964k in first week sales. Still have a long way to go to catch up to Eminem and his two diamond plaques, a millie first week back to back, and numerous other accolades. Just sayin’

  • pap3rchazer

    @rahrahrah

    like father like son right??? maybe weezy has resembled his “dad” birdman’s lack of respect for their artists in this interview. shame on him to son your BIGGEST artist like that! we all know weezy signed him but for wayne to make that “i’m the guys boss” reply in the public might hurt drakes chances to stand outside of waynes shadow n in his own 2. if anything, it shows how wayne is really insecure about who’s really #1 in rap right now, i mean 50 had a larger debut than his boss(es) but you dont hear Em or Dre knockin fif.

  • Sam I Am

    ahhh propaganda and payola. oh well….and to the niggas saying if it wasnt for Wayne, we wouldnt know Drake, you need to get out a lil more. Drake was already known on Degrassi and when he started putting out the mixtapes, he got a huge buzz already. There was a real bidding war for him, not that fake MMG bidding war claims. MAd niggas was trying to sign Drake. He just happened to sign to Wayne for whatever reason. So Far Gone had no Young Money influence whatsoever, that was him. Wayne just jumped on, and ever since Drake has provided hit after hit after hit for all of Young Money (Tyga just got Drake’s scraps of Still Got It earlier this week.)

    Wayne is Drake’s boss, but Drake is the one keeping that lanky nigga alive.

  • http://youtube.com Oooo
  • ColoradoKnight

    Wayne going for the Jimmy Hendrix look on the cover, smh? Rappers swearin’ to God their real musicians sometimes? Lyricists, yes. Musicians, no. Either way, C4 was a extremely forgettable unless your an adolescent from the burbs who follows his every skateboarding move.

  • the guy

    and drake cant ever leave the label. HAHA.

  • yma

    Weezy’s hip hop’s leading man? Don’t think so vibe.

  • The Realist

    drake never ever would have made it wit out wayne, he throw him under da bus just fact, wayne is boss and drake isnt close to waynes level skill ect, wit out wayne drake would of got robbed more then the 1 time he already got fucked up lol DEGRASSI = I NEED WAYNE TO SELL RAPS js

    I love Old Wayne. I am getting more and more frustrated with the decision Wayne has been making. Your new music sucks and your style has serious got me wondering about your sexuality. Dude wake the fuck up and look in the mirror, you look like a faggot.

  • James

  • OG Bogi

    “We’re more than friends” <– So gay!

  • a2z

    Correct. Wayne is Drake’s boss. That’s why Drake wrote half, if not 60% of C4. Listen again. Wayne getting $8 a disc, Drizzy getting that publishing dough #winning
