With his upcoming album, Black Market, due out tomorrow (December 4), Miami rapper Rick Ross appeared on The Breakfast Club to speak on his latest project and more.
In regards to the ongoing feud between Birdman and Lil Wayne, Ross spoke in-depth on the matter. He revealed that although he once looked up to Birdman and what he had with Cash Money Records, he no longer has a relationship with him.
The Maybach Music Group founder also added that he doesn’t respect what’s going on between the two.
“I don’t have one with Birdman,” Rick Ross said when asked about his relationship with Baby. “If you read The Source magazine, you would see that right now—And really me just seeing what Wayne going through as an artist. Him being a boss. Me idolizing Birdman at a time. Me looking up to Lil Wayne. Wayne being the first artist to make so many feats. Not just as an artist, but an artist coming from the South. That’s something that I took personal. So, for me to see the way things are transpiring, I can’t respect that. And I don’t respect it…It’s a lot that transpired behind that that I don’t respect.”
Prior to speaking on Birdman and Lil Wayne, Ross was asked if he was taking shots at Drake on his “Color Money” record. On the song, Rozay appears to reference Drake’s “Back To Back” as he raps:
“Color money got your bitch out on a world tour / My lil homie made a million on his girl tour / We back to back and down to whack a nigga unborn / Miami niggas got them changing all the gun laws.”
He didn’t confirm if he was referring to Drake on the song, but did state that people will interpret it different ways.
“I just released ‘Color Money’ and that record is what it is, you dig? It’s a lot of different people that’s gonna interpret it a lot of different ways,” he said. “And it is what it is. I mean, everybody who know Rozay know how I get down. And when I come, I come. So, I just say let’s see how it unfolds. We most definitely know how I came and what I do. I don’t play no games…Weezy my homie. I was just with Weezy the other night at the club. He was just on the remix with me. J. Prince, that’s my big homie. Anything else, take it how you want it.”
Lastly, the Miami wordsmith kept his comments about Timbaland, who he previously feuded with, short and to the point.
“Homie made a big mistake. He gon’ fix it though,” Ross said in regards to Timbaland.
