Jay Z Tried to Sign Lil Wayne to Roc-A-Fella for $175K


Lil Wayne has spent much of the last year and a half legally battling Birdman, attempting to get free of his Cash Money contract and recoup some of the millions he says he’s owed, but it all could have gone differently if Wayne had signed with Roc-A-Fella Records around 2005.

At the time Wayne was considering leaving the home that made him after his deal with Cash Money ended, and Jay Z invited him up to New York City to see if he could convince the greatest rapper alive at the time to rock a Roc chain. As Lil Wayne recounts in this new interview with DJ Drama, the meeting didn’t go well. After Wayne awkwardly stood around while Jay Z hung out with his famous buddies, Hova then pulled Weezy aside to offer him $175K for his services, a number that was laughably low for Weezy at the time.
