The Empire Strikes Back At Lil Wayne
from Yo! Raps Magazine
LOS ANGELES, (RUSHPRNEWS) 06/03/2008 -Lil Wayne recently told DJ Drama on his Shade 45 radio show that he is upset at The Empire for using unauthorized material on his mixtape series â€œThe Drought Is Overâ€. Now The Empire strikes back by saying that someone inside Lil WayneÂ´s camp sent him the tracks. â€œHe gotta look at his inside camp and understand that I got those records from somebody that sits right next to him on a busâ€¦ Thatâ€™s co-signing him while heâ€™s talking about me. Iâ€™m not gonna put his name out there, but itâ€™s one of those guys. Theyâ€™re sitting next to him every day.â€
Lil Wayne told Drama that he hasnÂ´t worked with The Empire yet but that false, according to the DJ. â€œI spoke to Wayne,â€ the DJ assured. â€œAfter [The Drought Is Over] Pt. 2, I spoke to him. We were supposed to work out a situation where we can work together. Wayne hosted my first Empire joint, so for him to say he donâ€™t even know who I am, that was wrong.â€
Empire also added itÂ´s not true that he puts out CDs every month. “Thatâ€™s wrong. I dropped five CDs in two years. I made sure all of them were quality. My CDs are known for having the new music. These kids are running around putting stuff out like stuff I played or whatever leaks on the internet, I think thatâ€™s wack and Iâ€™ve been not feeling that. I feel like I did more good than bad. Those have been the hottest CDs in the streets for the past year and a half.â€
Furthermore Empire says that WayneÂ´s â€œTha Carter IIIâ€ isnÂ´t a good CD. â€œItâ€™s not what I expected,â€ Empire confessed. â€œThereâ€™s definitely some records on there. The Dought Is Over 2, a lot of those records were samples that would have been really good if they could have been cleared. It would have been very costly to clear. That â€œMr. Carterâ€ record on Tha Carter III, that record is crazy. No records on none of my tapes equal that joint. But I donâ€™t know, The Drought Is Over 2 is just crazy to me.â€
â€œTha Carter IIIâ€ will hit stores on June 10.
