If this year’s Hottest MCs discussion took place today Rick Ross could easily snatch the number one spot. Ross’ banner year includes a partnership with Diddy, a steaming street anthem that pays homage to incarcerated drug kingpin Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory resulting in arguably hip-hop’s best full length LP for 2010, “Teflon Don.” And T.I. says his only competition for the King of the South title would be Lil Wayne. Go figure.
Over the past month Ross’ latest certified hit “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast)” has managed to rattle just about everything from the clubs to the car stereos. But with the good comes bad and not so many have been cranking up the volume on “B.M.F.” Forget that Meech’s mom has given the song her stamp of approval not to mention Meech himself. A few weeks back, Young Jeezy took a crack at “B.M.F.” dropping a few lines on it that many felt were peppered with subliminals directed at Ross (Within a 24 hour window Young quickly defused reports he was going at Ross’ head while many didn’t buy it. Notably, the trap star recently performed the song in Houston over the weekend). Ross, for the most part, has yet to respond but prefers to let the music do the talking as he released his own record, “The Summer’s Mine,” where where he references someone as just a “water boy.” So one has to ponder, what are Ross’ thoughts on Jeezy’s alleged diss record? Did he clap back at Young? And what happened to his sales miscalculations that ended his three year run at number one to Soundscan champ Eminem?
Hit the jump to hear from the Teflon Don himself …
