Rick Ross dropped a song titled "Color Money" recently taking shots at a familiar MMG foe and his boss.
"My lil homie made a million on his girl tour/We back to back and down to whack a n!gga unborn/Miami n!ggas got them changing all the gun laws/So run Forrest got some shooters and they dying too/I got more money than that p*ssy that you’re signed to," he raps.
Most hip hop heads knew he was dissing Drake and assumed the second person was Lil Wayne. But during an interview with The Breakfast Club today, the Miami rapper made things clear.
"I just released Color Money and that record is what it is," Ross said. "It's a lot of different people that's gonna interpret it a lot of different ways and it is what it is. Everybody who know Rozay know how I get down and when I come I come. Let's see how it unfolds. We most definitely know how I come and what I do."
Charlamagne Tha God said he thought the lyrics could be about Wayne, Birdman or J. Prince in his opinion.
"Weezy my homie. I was just with Weezy the other night in the club. J. Prince, that's my big homie," Ross continued. "Anything else, take it how you want it. I don't have [a relationship] with Birdman. Me just seeing what Wayne going through as a 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 a artist, but a 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 that. I was as Club Liv, and me and Mack Maine was huddled up speaking. [I told him] you gon' hear some things, and I've said some things and I'ma stand on that. And I mean that. You gon' see that and let's make it clear."
Charlamagne asked the rapper if Birdman was an inspiration of his at one point.
"Of course he was, that's why it hurt just to see what transpired," Rick said. "Whatever the difference is. You don't have to come up with a solution to the number or the figure. But as far as the communication. That's what I wanted to build my team after. The way they kids was molding together. So, for me to see this, that's a no go. I ain't with that."
When asked if he and Birdman could sit down and talk about this, Ross said he was in Wayne's corner.
"I don't know," he answered. "I respect Lil Wayne's struggle. I'm supporting Lil Wayne right now. Not about the black and white, what's on the contracts. But just on the way things transpiring. I don't respect that. And it's whatever it is. You from the South...you gotta set better examples of how we do business even if you have a issue with a artist. The man name, Tha Carter album and all that. You gotta respect that. That's that man's last name. I just don't respect it."
