Baby a.k.a Birdman has made it his business to share some controversial opinions to the world on 106 & Park the other day. According to him, Lil Wayne does more in Hip-Hop than none of than Jay-Z! What a claim to make right?
Well, let’s evaluate this further…
According to this years “Cash King’s” list from Forbes.com Hov topped off the chart with revenues in the $35 million dollar range. Lil Wayne came in at number six with $20 million.
Jigga is estimated to have a net worth of $150 million dollars. Lil Wayne is estimated to have a net worth of $65 million dollars. Hm… Isn’t looking good for Wayne.
Lil Wayne’s record label “Young Money” includes artist like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Bow Wow, and some others we could care less about.
Drake (the most famous of the bunch) has made a strong imprint in hip-hop already, and he hasn’t even put out an album yet. Nicki Minaj is on her way to the female Drake status. With her hips, lips, and t*ts you can’t help but pay attention- f*ck what she’s saying! And Bow Wow well no comment…Drake may be the new hot sh*t but he can’t carry the team by himself!
At one point Roc-A-Fella Records controlled the radio,and music game. Dame Dash, Memphis Bleek, Beanie Siegel, Young Gunz, Freeway, Kanye West, Amil, Teirra Marie, and Rihanna were all throwing up the rock sign at one tie or another. Priceless songs in hip-hop have come from these artist. Such songs like: “Can I Get A What,” ” Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop,” “Through The Wire,” ” Is that Yo Chic?” and “Pon De Replay.”
It’s safe to say that Jay wins again.
Both men are currently on tour. Recently Jay-Z donated his proceeds to the victims of 9/11( The release date of The Blueprint album). He’s brought out guests including Beyonce,Rihanna,Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Pharrell,Mary J. Blidge etc. Lil Wayne has brought out the likes of Keyshia Cole, T-Pain, Keri Hilson, and Young Money Artists (of course), etc.
It is safe to say again that Jay wins in that category.
When it comes down to reproducing, Wayne is NO stranger to putting that work in! All of his chicks are beautiful but are they messing with Mrs. Jay-Z,the baddest chic in the game? Hell No!
Jay you win again!
Besides these obvious accomplishments Jay-Z has won seven Grammys, and Lil wayne, four. Jay- Z is the owner of the 40/40 club, and owns the sole license to distribute Armadale vodka in the US. Jay-Z has stocks in the New Jersey Nets and was the President of Def Jam Records and still is president of the revamped Roc-A-Fella records, Roc Nation. Yeah Lil Wayne sold a mil in his first week but all his sales put together doesn’t even come close to Jay. Wayne is TALENTED and he gets props for selling the h*ll of his Carter 3 album but…
The Winner is:
“The Dynasty Continues, Yall Die!” Birdman “We don’t believe you, you need more people!”
