Do you hear it?
Lil Wayne isn’t one to sneak a diss… but that fact hasn’t stopped fans from speculating that he’s going for Meek Mill and Rick Ross in his new song “Big Bad Wolf.”
We’ve looked at the evidence, and it’s a little slim. Even so, tea lovers have to drop their bag in if it looks like they might spend a day sipping hot water. So here we are… let’s break this down!
Let’s start with the supposed Meek diss.
“I got Dream Chasers, that ain’t never dreamt it,” Wayne spits at one point.
While that’s a very clear allusion to Meek’s brand, the context of the song makes it clear that he’s talking about bringing people up and not putting Meek down.
The lines before this one are “I got b***hes getting tired of spinning, spin it/ If we winning, win it.” Wayne is clearly saying that his come-up was also the come-up of everyone around him. Not even Meek’s ultra-high-profile beef with Drake can warp this line into a diss.
And even if Wayne dislikes Meek, it’s not exactly the best look for him to be sending shots his way right now. Throwing punches at a man who is currently in prison on what just about the entire hip-hop world has decided is a bulls**t charge is not the move for someone who wants to be considered the best rapper alive. The court of public opinion is heavily favored toward Meek right now and, even if it wasn’t, he can’t exactly defend himself.
The next lines are even further removed from reality. The idea that Wayne would go after Rick Ross when the rapper has been his biggest booster in his beef with Birdman — even going so far as to drop a diss track supporting Wayne’s quest to get paid by the Cash Money head — makes zero sense.
Here are the lines in question:
“When s**t get ugly, I go Pretty Ricky
I don’t f**k with rats, neither Minnie Mickey,
I don’t f**k with cops, that’s the Piggly Wiggly”
The argument here seems to be that Ricky is an oblique reference to Rick Ross, not a direct one to the group Pretty Ricky. The references to pigs and rats in this case would play with Ross’ weight and his former status as a corrections officer. We just don’t see it. More than likely, it’s a play on the song’s title. He’s calling himself the Big Bad Wolf, who famously didn’t f**k with pigs

The Ross slam just doesn’t make sense after Rozay delivered a spoken word outro on the song “Idols Become Rivals,” taking Birdman to task over his failure to treat Lil Wayne right.
“Can’t believe this s**t, homie. Still love you, n**ga. But how the f**k you touch half a billion, n**ga, and your team starving, n**ga?” he said. “I let you in my city, n**ga. What hurt me most is how you did my brother Khaled, n**ga. Khaled was loyal to you, n**ga…. You put my n**ga in a hole, homie. I don’t feel you for that.”.
