WOW! Jay Z Offered Lil' Wayne Some Money To Sign To The ROC?‎

If you remember back in 2008 Jay Z and Weezy collaborated on the single "Mr. Carter" off Tha Carter III album. Rumors were rampant back then that Hova wanted the hottest rapper at the time on his team while he was at his prime. He sat down with DJ Drama and detailed the offer Jay had actually given him.

"You know when I went out to talk to him about being at Roc-A-Fella, and mind you this was years ago. First of all, he was at the 40/40 in the daytime, and when I got up there he was talkin', it was Denzel [Washington], it was Derek Jeter…I was like, 'This is his clique?' And they up there just laughin' at jokes I just don't get. He literally sat me down next to him, and this where all that is going on at, and he sat me right here. Like 'You ain't a part of this,' you know? And he would talk to me on the side after every joke."
So how much did Jay offer him?
"That man offered me 175 [thousand dollars]," Weezy said. "Two teeth in my mouth is 175. My bottom teeth. So we laugh about that all the time."
One can only imagine what would've happened if the two collaborted on the deal. Now the two can enjoy their collaborations on TIDAL.
