Rick Ross says that he and Jeezy were able to move past their rift due to a variety of reasons.
“It was a lot of misconfusion at the end of the day because me and his personally never had an issue and I think that was one of the reasons we were able to really resolve this problem because we never really personally had an issue,” Rick Ross says during an interview with HuffPost Live. “Amongst bosses, you know we like to call it, ‘That rapper stuff.’ Real bosses get over that and that’s what we did and I’m happy we was able to do that and set the examples for some of the younger bosses that’s coming up and let ‘em know it’s all about making that positive progress.”
Rick Ross and Jeezy collaborated on the recently released “War Ready,” a selection off Ross’ upcoming Mastermind album, a collaboration that followed a feud between the two rappers. A rift between Jeezy and Ross dates back to at least 2010. In 2012, the two were involved in a scuffle. Footage of the brawl between Jeezy and Ross can be seen here.
“We had past differences and you know we put that to the side, being true bosses, and to do something big for the culture, which is bigger than both of us,” Rick Ross says during the HuffPost Live interview. “Here we have it, ‘War Ready.’”
Rick Ross said the collaboration is also part of his growth.
“MMG and Ricky Rozay, I’m expanding and getting bigger every day,” he says. “It’s a lot of other entrepreneurs that’s doing the same and Jeezy is one, so it was just time for us to come together. Let’s capitalize and something big happen for the game, for Hip Hop for the culture and we may be doing something else. You never know.”
