Friend or foe? Apparently, Rick Ross and Young Jeezy are the latter these days.
Though the former labelmates have collaborated on songs before, including Ross' "Maybach Music 2," the down-South MCs have been at odds since this past summer. It all started with the release of Ricky Rozay's "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)," a song that takes its acronym from the Black Mafia Family.
Jizzle — who has a friendship with incarcerated Black Mafia Family leader, Big Meech — released a venomous "B.M.F." freestyle of his own this summer. Though he denied dissing anyone on the track, he was spitting lines that seemed like they might be targeting Ross. Jeezy told MTV News that the reccord was not a dis. But Miami's Boss isn't too fond of subliminals, as he recently told The Source magazine.
"I’m not sure what was going on," Ross said. "[The freestyle] was most definitely [disrespectful], whatever it was. Then the explanations seemed sideways, less than G."
Ross says he was caught off-guard by the record. To let him tell it, he had no clue there was an issue between the two.
"It’s most definitely when we always touching distance from each other," Ross explained. "I’m tight here. It’s not like I’m in Miami and you in New York. We see each other. That’s the only issue I had. It was sideways. So I made a record, “Summer’s Mine” just to [let him know], if we gonna play that sport, let’s put it on the table like men. If it was just a freestyle that the world took the wrong way, leave it alone. That’s how I took it."
The new issue of The Source magazine starring Rick Ross and Wiz Khalifa on its cover hits stores December 14.
