Will Rick Ross and Young Jeezy become the next Throne? A fan asked that very question–whether Rick and Jeezy could put aside their differences and collaborate together on an album–on The Russ Parr Morning Show and Rozay gave a flat, unenthusiastic grunt.
Rick did however, add, “You know where I’m at and the position I’m in right now, I don’t have no beef with nobody. I’m chasing that crown right now..Right now ain’t the time for that. We staying focused.”
Ross also talked about spending more time recording and making “bigger records” in comparison to the past. He said that he takes advice from his younger MMG homies like Wale, Meek Mill and Rockie Fresh.
Ross and Jeezy have had a longtime checkered relationship, earlier this year though, it seemed that the two heavyweights may collaborate for the right price. When MTV’s Sway asked if Ross and the Snowman could sit down and work things out, Rozay was open to the idea if it was financially beneficial.
“I’m always ’bout business; that’s why I’m here. I haven’t taken nothin’ personal since I came in the game and I think if you in this business and plan on having longevity in this you shouldn’t take nothin’ personal,” Ross said, noting that their differences never led to any physical altercations. “Ain’t nobody stepped on my Jordans yet, not out here. As far as I’m concerned, bring that money bag, let’s shake the world up, that’s what Double M-G is about.”
