What up NT, I never really caught this line. Is he talking about units moved?

I know theres some Jay heads on here that could've written "Decoded" word to that classic Jay-Z post a few years back...


"Then I'm lea-vin, that's how you get me back
After a year of them 16's, it's one point two
And that's two point four, and I'm only doin two"

anyways good looks

I am relatively sure he is saying that for a feature or a 16 he is charging 1.2 mil and he only was planning to do 2 of them in a year. Makes sense to me.

NO rapper has that kind of money to pay 1.2 for a verse

Both Drake and Wayne wh0r3 themselves on just about every type of track.

Explain to me how a Drake/Wayne feature holds more value than a Hov feature (who rarely guest appears on anything).

after a year of them 16's

why phrase it like that though?

i can't imagine anyone giving up $1.2 million for a jay verse. most album budgets aren't even half of that.

drake's garnering 80k for 16 bars nowadays.

and i would imagine wayne is generously compensated for his guest features.

BUT...

more than hov? that's under serious investigation.

Any rapper that wants to put out an actual good song and get good popularity, will get a Jay verse over either of those two any day of the week.

And there's no way in hell they're getting more money either.

Wayne gets 100 grand for a feature according to about 9 lines he has said in mixtapes before. And in regards to getting that much if you think back to that time, if Jay would have really stayed gone and just jumped in 2 times a year, some people would have paid 2 or 3 mil for those.

Also I think he just says "after a year, them 16s" he does not say of.
