On the Red Carpet of the 11th annual BMI Awards, MTV’s Rob Markman catches up with Drake to ask about Lil’ Wayne’s shots directed at Jay-Z on “It’s Good” off Tha Carter IV. Like Jadakiss, Drake is keeping that between the two hip-hop heavyweights.
“I just got a beat and did a verse over it. Whatever any other individual has to say, you have to ask the man himself. I just did what I know how to do. I just got on a record. I heard the beat, did a verse and heard the final product. At the end of the day, rap is an individual art. You express yourself and whatever you wanna say, you say it, so I guess that’s a question for Wayne more than me.”

After the jump, Steve Stoute shares his views on the same hot topic….
While promoting his upcoming book,Tanning Of America that drops September 8th, Jas Fly got the chance to ask The Comissioner Steve Stoute why he feels Jay-Z won’t respond to Lil’ Wayne’s diss line.
“For Jay-Z to do ANYTHING that resembles moving backwards right now would be insane. And a Jay-Z beef is moving backwards. Jay is SO MUCH bigger than rap at this point. He’s a movement. And THAT’S where his head is at. That’s where his focus is. And NO ONE is on his level, even worthy of him battling with. No one. So you probably won’t see that happen.”
