Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross and his ongoing feud with fellow southern Rap mainstay Young Jeezy has been the fodder of discussion since the inception of the beef. With speculation that Jeezy made the first jab at Ross last year over the “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast)” sumemr anthem, Ross counterpunched on a verse off the mixtape fave “Summers Mine.” This past summer DJ Khaled served as a reluctant middleman noting there was no beef and that he could get both men on a record together. However, yesterday (October 4), Ricky Rozay addressed the beef in a more direct fashion during a radio interview.
Joining with Hot 97 on-air personality Funkmaster Flex, the typically relaxed Ross spoke on the situation in grand detail. “It was a freestyle done on the “B.M.F.” track where some things were said, and you know, I attempted to address it like a real G would,” said Ross. “I never got a direct answer. There was some things being said on record which perpetuated that there may be pressure, there may be beef. I always did business with homie.”
Ross further continued with, “You gotta understand when you talk about this street life and being one hundred and being solid, it’s certain things that you just bring to a person and that’s what I was expecting, but that never happened. However homie feel, that’s him.”
Ross went on to say that although Young Jeezy performed at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards over the weekend where the MMG chief sat front row, no words were exchanged of any sort.
“We were just at the BET Awards and I sat at the front row” Ross confirmed. “He performed. If there’s any pressure, handle it right then. Thats the type of person I am. So if we not gonna handle it right then and you see me and you keep walking, if you come from where I come from thats how you handle your business.”
Flex later suggested that the root of Jeezy’s issues with Ross may stem from the Florida rapper’s rise to superstardom while the Snowman’s career has been a bit stagnant lately.
“Before some of your biggest records came, Jeezy represented that street party element” said Flex. “And since then, this is just me on the outside, looking in, you’ve captured some of that.”
“Some of it or all of it” Ross quickly shot back.
Aside from possibly churning the pot on his war of words with Young Jeezy, Rick Ross managed to slip in a release date for his upcoming fifth studio album. God Forgives, I Don’t will drop on December 13 according to the “Bawse.”
