Don’t come for Jay-Z’s family, unless you’re ready for war. Nearly two years after Lil Wayne threatened to kidnap Beyonce on the song, “It’s Good,” off Tha Carter IV, Hov is swinging back on a new track from his upcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail called “La Familia.”
In the lyrics, which were revealed on the Magna Carta Samsung app this weekend, Mr. Carter takes off the gloves – figuratively of course. “Wanna kidnap wifey/ good luck with that bruh/you must gonna hide your whole family/ what you think we wearing black for/ ready for that war/you ain’t ready yo,” Hov spits on the track.
The Cash Money-Roc Nation drama all began back in 2011 when Weezy took shots at Jay-Z for calling apparently out his father Birdman on Watch The Throne’s “H.A.M.,” in which Jay-Z raps, “I’m like really half a billi n—-, really you got Baby money; Keep it real with n—-, n—– ain’t got my lady money.”
Wayne wasn’t too fond of the Roc Nation mogul’s diss and decided to go eye for eye on “It’s Good,” rapping, “Talkin’ ’bout baby money, I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, Get that ’how much you love your lady?’ money.”
Guess Jay-Z wasn’t going to let that one slide.
