I told you guys from the very beginning of this thing that it was going to have legs and most you said it’s done, and here we are 6 months later and it’s still going. A few weeks back Young Jeezy was in Miami with a bunch of Crips (CTE) and Jeezy called out Ross more or less saying “Where’s Your Favorite Rapper At?”
About 2 weeks after that Rick Ross responded to the video saying Jeezy played himself.
Says Rick Ross:
“I got to see the footage of him walking on South Beach, down Collins Ave…[Tim: it got a little crazy out there.] Yeah, he played himself. You gotta come cross the bridge to Carol City, Lil’ Haiti, that’s where you get your issues. I mean, Washington Ave? Give me a break…..what’s crazy about that, you can see on that same footage, when they asked about my name, they still don’t really have a direct answer. And that ain’t gangster at all. If you really have an issue put it on the table and handle it like a G. Walking down Collins Ave…You played yourself, you’ll get that took from you.”
In his “Man of the Year” cover issue of The Source magazine, Ross discredits the way Jeezy handled the whole situation as not being G.
Has the phone call between you and Young Jeezy take place yet?
Nah. That hasn’t happened. It’s nothing I’m looking forward to.
You guys have worked together before. It seemed the camaraderie between you two was genuine. The last summer he put out his own “B.M.F.” freestyle, but told me personally it wasn’t abbot you. Did you feel disrespected?
I’m not sure what was going on. [the freestyle] was most definitely [disrespectful], whatever it was. Then the explanations seemed sideways, less than G.
What’s more surprising; a diss records by somebody you were cool with or by somebody you don’t know?’
It’s most definitely when we always touching distance from each other. I’m tight here. It’s not like I’m in Miami and you in New York. We see each other. That’s the only issue I had. It was sideways. So i made a record, “Summer’s Mine” just to [let him know], if we gonna play that sport, let’s put it on the table like men. If it was just a freestyle that the world took the wrong way, leave it alone. That’s how I took it.
An added twist is that you and Jeezy are both on Def Jam. Did you ever get a call from L.A Reid saying “Hey, let’s not let this get out of hand?”
Nah. I don’t accept those kinda calls. I think they know that would have been an exercise in futility. Whatever it’s gonna be, it’s gonna be. If we gonna get money, we gonna get money. If it’s pressure, just put it on the table. I feel no way. I had nothing but love for the homie, but if me getting money in the streets or making music offended you, I can’t help that.
Thoughts on the situation?
