Young Jeezy Says The "Death Before Dishonor" Track Is Not An Officer Ross Diss

We're not going to make you wait 26 episodes until the season finale to reveal the answer to this cliffhanger. On Monday night, Young Jeezy released "Death B4 Dishonor," the first song from his upcoming mixtape, 1,000 Grams, Vol. 1. On it, he raps over Rick Ross' "(B.M.F.) Blowin' Money Fast" instrumental, which quickly fueled heavy speculation among fans that the Snowman was actually dissing the Bawse. Jeezy settled the question straight-up on Tuesday (August 10).

"It's not a dis," Jizzle told MTV News via phone from ATL. "First of all, I'm not gonna get nothing out of dissing that guy. That's one. What am I gonna get out of dissing him? I think sometimes people can read into things too deep. They trippin', man. They crazy out there. Basically, if homie takes that as a dis, he's insecure, and anybody else out there who does, they are insecure.

"When it comes to that [Black Mafia Family] situation, I'm gonna talk about it a little flyer anyway," Young added. "I happen to know that situation very well. But basically ['Death B4 Dishonor'], it's off a mixtape that's coming out. My mixtape is coming out on Thursday, it's called 1,000 Grams. I took all the records I liked and flipped them my way. It's a gang of records on there like that. It's like 12 joints, all records that I heard in the club that I like and flipped them my way.

While Jeezy doesn't mention Ross by name on "Death B4 Dishonor," one of the lines fueling the speculation questions: "How you Blowin' Money Fast?/ You don't know the crew/ Oh, you part of the fam?/ Sh--, I never knew."

"That's for real," Jeezy explained. "That's for anybody. I got n---as in prison behind that sh--. I feel that if you speaking on sh--, you gotta at least know who you talking about. That's like n---as speaking on Cash Money: If he ain't never been a part of Cash Money, [then] I'mma speak it better if I'm a part of Cash Money. To me, [Black Mafia Family] was real. I know all the members. Who else would say a line like that but me? I'm one of the few people who can say that, so I said it. That's real life, though. You gotta know the crew, baby. I thought that was the purpose of the game: to get on records and talk your sh--, right?

"Subliminals, for what?" the Snowman added. What's understood ain't gotta be said. I didn't think people would take the record like that. I did it like I would have any Shawty Lo record, any Rocko record, whoever. I got on [Ross' beat] and did it like how I do it, the best way I know how. I don't know if because the BMF situation is for real for me that everybody is like, 'Ooh. Oh, sh--.' Twitter is a muthaf---a, by the way."

During our talk, Jeezy said that his song "The Real BMF" had already been recorded (and was sitting in his vault) before Ross' "(B.M.F.)" was released. "The Real BMF" was supposed to have been included on the upcoming TM103, but once he heard that Ross put out a song so similar, he decided it didn't belong on his LP; it would just be a giveaway to the streets.

Young also described Ross' "(B.M.F.)" as "dope" and said he was bound to jump on the record one way or another, either officially or through the mixtape circuit, which he ultimately did. On 1,000 Grams, Vol. 1 he also flips Soulja Boy's "Pretty Boy Swag" into "Dope Boy Swag" and Kanye West's "Power" into the record & #8212; so aptly titled for the #1 Trap Star & #8212; "Powder." Records by the Clipse and Young Money also get their instrumentals borrowed for the tape.

"It was one of those things, you get in a zone and wanna get some sh-- off," he said of the DJ Scream-hosted tape. "I wanted to have some fun. Get in the booth, smoke me one or two."

And yes, his long-awaited TM103 album is still on the way. He promises it'll drop before the end of 2010.

What do you think of Jeezy's explanation? Does this end the speculation for you? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.

You know what, I'm kind of losing respect for Jeezy. I'm listening to "Death B4 Dishonor" right now, and he is clearly going at Rick Ross. I can't believe he just now pulled that b**** a** move. All he had to do was fess up to that diss and go hard at him.

i think they both dickriders . at first i didnt think he was coming at ross then i listened again. he's backsliding because thet either record label mates or he's shook. rick ross raps better and is selling more records now even if he is a cop , per say

no one is saying have senseless beefs but note:
- a lot of dudes selling out
- hop hop is moving away from elements of the streets. its more boardroom and college dorm
- ironic when hip hop was ignorant it was profitable, now n***** singing, dressing in pink, say they r "artist", sing a set of "soft rap" and albums r not selling.....

open your eyes to commercial controllers.

something just feeling wrong about the present state of hip hop
