Rick Ross opens up about his diss towards Birdman, "Idols Become Rivals."
Rick Ross dropped his new album, Rather You Than Me, just prior to the DrakeMore Life eclipse began. Ricky Rozay has managed to hold his own in the release competition, drawing attention to himself with album cuts like "Idols Become Rivals." The song, an open letter to Birdman of sorts, where Ross comments on, and reprimands, Birdman's business behavior, has even earned a shout out from Lil Wayne.
Ross kept the shade coming at the Birdman-led label, Cash Money, earlier today on twitter. Now in a new interview released by Billboard, the MMG rapper delves further into the motivation behind the record. As Rozay explains during the interview, he felt for Wayne's situation and simply had to speak up about it-- it shouldn't just be "accepted" by the industry and fans at large.
Read the full quote from Ross on the record below. If you missed Birdman's half-hearted response, check that out here.
You know, I just think it’s so f--ked up. Us seeing Lil Wayne’s [situation] and suffering from that, I think we kind of all got used to it. I think the culture has f--king accepted that Wayne would not put out another album. And that’s not the way the game [should be]. That’s not the way we designed this. That’s not the way this is supposed to be.
When we come up from the mud together, it’s not supposed to be this way. Birdman is supposed to be in that f--king building making those f--king people give him money to take care of his man. They supposed to be in the f--king [building], flipping over desks in those f--king offices, fighting to get money. Not f--king suing each other, fighting lawsuits and everybody starving. Not putting out music, not being creative. Us not doing what we came here for. There’s nothing more I hate than that -- us not doing what we came here for.
