Rick Ross’s Rather You Than Me cut, “Idols Become Rivals,” has gained significant traction, for its expressive call-out against Birdman’s shady business dealings with Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled and the numerous producers who have been allegedly stiffed by Cash Money and its affiliates.
In an interview with Billboard, Birdman addresses the accusations of money hoarding and his pending lawsuits that popped up on the song. “I don’t get caught up in hoe shit, man,” he said. “I just keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing. I don’t get caught up in that, I don’t play like that. I’m a man and I stand my ground and I do my thing. Numbers don’t lie, and that’s all I give a fuck about: numbers, and puttin’ them up.”
While Birdman appears to be relatively unfazed by the highly-praised record, the lawsuits are, in fact, still pending and there’s no indication of reconciliation between the former friends.
