With the release of his long-awaited album Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition less than three weeks away, Young Jeezy stopped by MTV's Rap Fix to open up on a variety of issues, including his reported beef with Rick Ross.
The tension between the two rap stars began with Ross's song "B.M.F.(Blowin'. Money. Fast)," which references Atlanta drug kingpin Big Meech and his Black Mafia Family. Jeezy, who considers Meech a brother, apparently took issue with Ross' alleged association. In a freestlye over "B.M.F (Blowin'. Money. Fast)" beat, the Atlanta rapper broached the subject.
"How you blowin' money fast/ You don't know the crew/ Oh, you part of the fam?/ Sh--, I never knew."
Ross has said he felt disrespected by the remarks, but as far as Jeezy is concerned, it was just good rap music.
"In my mind, in my heart, I just killed the verse," he said. "If I killed the verse and you took it personally, then that's on you."
Jeezy addressed Ross' rumored efforts to validate his statements by personally reaching out to Big Meech, calling such behavior misguided.
"When you're trying to bring the streets into rap to prove a point, then you already lost," he said. "You separate the two, and that ain't to be played with. You've got people that lost their lives and people that are doing real time. If we gon' make music, let's just make music."
From the Snowman's perspective, what Ross is really after is record sales.
"I see you at the BET Awards ... You don't say nothin'. The next week you on [Funkmaster] Flex talkin' crazy," Jeezy said of the Bawse. "You tryin' to sell records. It's not about me and you. You could've told me the same thing, we could've stepped in the corner and chopped it up. So that was my take on it. Right then and there, I knew it was about records. So I'm cool with it."
Previously, Ross made similar comments about his encounter with Jeezy at the BET Awards, expressing his own disappointment that Jizzle didn't step up to squash things.
Jeezy recently released a video for his latest single, "F.A.M.E." featuring T.I. TM103 is in stores December 20.
