The Empire Fires Back At Wayne, Says His Mixtapes Are Better Than Tha Carter III

Posted By on June 2, 2008

    Recently Lil Wayne told DJ Drama on his Shade 45 radio show that he was upset at "The Empire" mixtape DJ for using his material in the unauthorized series called The Drought Is Over [listen here]. The Empire has fired back by saying they get his records from someone in camp. “He gotta look at his inside camp and understand that I got those records from somebody that sits right next to him on a bus…That’s co-signing him while he’s talking about me. I’m not gonna put his name out there, but it’s one of those guys. They’re sitting next to him every day.”

    Lil Wayne told Drama that he doesn't work with The Empire, yet The Empire puts out a CD on him every month. The Empire says that isn't true. “I spoke to Wayne,” the DJ assured. “After [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 don’t even know who I am, that was wrong.”

    The Empire talked about Waynes statements that he put out CDs every month, "That’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 that’s wack and I’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.”

    Empire says that Tha Carter III isn't as good as his CD series. “It’s not what I expected,” Empire confessed. “There’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 “Mr. Carter
record on Tha Carter III, that record is crazy. No records on none of
my tapes equal that joint. But I don’t know, The Drought Is Over 2 is
just crazy to me.”
