Weezy Didn’t Understand Jay’s Mr. Carter Verse

I’m right, cheah
In my chair
With my crown, with my dear
Queen Bee, as I share
Mic time, with my heir
Young Carter
Go farther
Go further
Go harder
Is that not
Why we came? and if not,
Then why bother?

The biggest rapper in the world pays him a huge compliment and this fucking kid doesn’t even catch it until somebody points it out.

From a Q&A Rolling Stone did with Wayne:

On “Mr. Carter,” Jay-Z calls you “my heir, Young Carter” — that had to feel pretty cool.
That line right there was hard! Unbelievable. I didn’t even realize it at first. My homie had to tell me “You know what he said, right?” I didn’t even get it. I was like, “Why is he saying ‘air’? Is he just talking about the air?” But I’m smart enough to know that he’s smart enough not to just be talking about the air. I felt real dumb, but then I felt so good. It was an incredible compliment.

    I haven’t listened to “Tha Carter 3” and I don’t really care to.

    From the songs that I heard I think its all overrated material.

    To me it sounded like a person who isn’t significantly intelligent attempt to make material that is, and falling short. [C] “Dr. Carter” and “Mr. Carter” just to name two.

    ^1) weezy is not smart

    2) jay is not just talking about air, its obvious

    3) weezy implying he is not stupid based on how not stupid jay is means weezy is in fact quite stupid

    4) jay gave him a compliment he didnt even realize it hes too busy thinking about being fly like air

    5) hes admitting this to the world

    6) this is the guy who is the heir

    *leaves*

  50. PHENOMENON Says:

    Is it just me. . .or does Wayne turn that Jay verse into complete sh*t?

    Sorry Jay, you fu*ked up. It most definately should have been Lupe. [IMO]

    The Cool = Classic!

    I’m sorry, but if “Tha Carter 3” can be called Classic, then i feel it is my duty to balance out the universe.

  61. Kapulot Says:

    WOW! thats to much stupidity to take in before breakfast.

    *pours bowl of Wheetos*

    Still to much.

  62. Yeah Boy Says:

    “The biggest rapper in the world pays him a huge compliment and this fucking kid doesn’t even catch it until somebody points it out.”

    Actually the biggest rapper (scratch that) ARTIST in the world right now is Wayne himself. Sorry haters.
    I know in Hip Hop its considered taboo by many to validate sales as a means to whose bigger and better, but somewhere along the lines of ‘Pac gloatin about going “quadruple/quadropple platinum”, Jay sayin “only dudes movin units Em, Pimp Juice and Us, and 50’s “I create material that connects with the most people in the world” (or somethin like that). Sales has become a direct indication for who’s the biggest artist.

    Sorry I had to go there but its time to give Weezy the respect that you gave Jay or any iconic MC that took and carried the torch. Haters can no longer hide behind the theory that Waynes just a mixtape rapper who cant make a “classic” album. Sidenote: the actual term “classic” is so fuckin relative its sickening. You can only call somethin a classic if you actually like the shit. Not everybody liked Reasonable Doubt back in 96. It went over alot of peoples heads at the time (outside of NY anyway). The fact of the matter is that Reasonable Doubt and Illmatic and Cuban Linx are bonafied classics, but not too many niggas outside of the boroughs was going crazy for them shits. Does it give those the right to say it isnt a classic? Hell no, because they just werent into it at the time, point blank, those who were deep into those artist could only truly say those were classic albums, others just quietly agreed not wanting to go against the grain and cause conflict.
    So with all that being said, its time for cats to finally get off the hate-wagon. Jays not the biggest, Kanyes not the biggest, not Coldplay, not Mariah, not High School Musical, not Hannah Montana. Waynes the biggest thing in the world right now in enterntainment. Bigger than Lebron, bigger than ______

  63. Yeah Boy Says:

    And please spare me the whole “Universal bought a majority…” case. makes absolutely no sense. Why in the world would suits spend their own money to buy their own shit??? to help an arstists buzz so he can go off and make independent money doing shows and shit? Them suits aint that fuckin nice guys. No company purchases their own products to make themselves look good. We should know by now that suits give a fuck about perception, all they want is capital, and Im not the biggest math guy, but buying your own shit just doesnt add the fuck up.

    Peace guys.

  66. jackNASTY Says:

    damn…this doesn’t fit in with my whole “weezy wrote jays verse” theory to explain why he called him the heir.

    either way…still don’t mean shit… cause the heir to jays thrown = eminem > you.

  67. brooklynstandup Says:

    Marcus Garvey- Jamaican who came to america led the Pan African movement… if whites where not going to give Blacks rights we should go back to Africa and establish our own government… U.S shut that down and deported him.

    If Wayne couldn’t get that, than it speaks volumes of the next generation of rappers and hip-hop fans. You lost.

    “the Biggies and the Pacs and the Marleys and the Marcuses..GARVEY, got me a molotov cocktail…”

    self explanatory. it’s a shame people don’t actually listen to lyrics because jay goes in. right before that was the best line on the album..

    “show no mercy the Murcielagos are far from bein a bastard that Marcy had fathered…”
