Since today is the anniversary of 400 Degreez, the good folks over at Complex got down with Juve The Great and had him break down his 25 essential songs yesterday. But today they came back with another scoop where Juve recalled his ugly breakup with Cash Money and explained why Ice Cube sent him $50,000. But the best part is when he goes in on Lil Wayne and claims Wayne is getting ripped off by Baby and Slim:
“If you notice the Young Money/Cash Money imprint, some of the stuff that need to say Young Money don’t say Young Money. I know Baby and I know Ronald ["Slim" Williams]. They ain’t giving up power of their company. They don’t care how big Wayne gets, they not giving up. If I didn’t getting it, he ain’t getting it. [Tha Carter III] album did great. But I don’t think Wayne collected a dime on royalty side.
“I thought he was scared [that’s why he stayed]. I was like, ‘You don’t have to be scared.’ I’m really from the projects. No disrespect to [Baby and Slim], but I’m 10 times more street than they are…I’m like, ‘Don’t let them niggas intimidate you. If you wanna leave, leave. You’re with me now, not them.’ One thing led to another and he signed back, but I took it as he was scared.”
