Rick Ross is getting ready to release his 10th solo LP Rather You Than Me on Friday and multiple sites are already reporting details about the project.
According to Billboard, the MMG CEO goes to Church on “Idols Become Rivals,” calling out Birdman and addressing his issues with the Cash Money boss.
“I grew up on that Cash Money/”Bling Bling” was well-known to flash money,” begins Rozay. “I used to see you n—-s on my TV screen / And wonder what was life like, was it all a dream / And then I met you out on Live Nation dates / Came to the realization that your watch was fake / Damn, you nearly broke my heart / I thought you n—-s really owned them cars.”
“I used to look up to you n—a,” he pauses and reflects. He even name-drops Baby’s close cohort, Mannie Fresh: “Look you in your eyes before I say good night / And pray that Mannie Fresh will get to see the light.”
“Damn Stunna, I love you n—a, I hate it came to see this,” Rozay adds before alleging that Birdman stole artists’ publishing money to cop his riches. He even takes it into Lil Wayne territory: “I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne / His entire life, he gave you what that was the game / I watched this whole debacle so I’m part to blame / Last request, can all producers please get paid?”
Ross wraps by offering candid thoughts, “I can’t believe this s–t homie. I still love you, n—a. How the f–k, n—a, you touch half a billion, n—a and your team starving, n—a?”
He also suggests a situation between Khaled and Birdman. “What hurt me most is how you did my brother, Khaled. Khaled was loyal to you, n—a. The pain I seen in my brother’s eyes, FaceTiming my n—a, he took that to the chin. That’s why my n—a Khaled blessed.”
Complex has also tweeted that Rick Ross spits lines about Meek Mill’ beef with drake and the rappers relationship with Nicki Minaj on “Apple Of My Eye,” see tweet below.
