Rick Ross: Wale, Meek Mill Beef Was a Misunderstanding

The Bawse explains how he squashed the drama between his two MMG artists.

Meek Mill's beef with Wale was a "misunderstanding" according to Rick Ross. In an interview with Bullet, The Bawse spoke about the social media squabble between his two MMG artists and how he stepped in to resolve the situation. 

Meek went at Wale first on Twitter, and Ross interjected immediately. "As soon as the tweets went out, I spoke to both them on the phone," said Rozay. "Those two guys, they're brothers. At the end of the day, they're brothers and it's time to turn up right now. It's time for all of us to turn up and stay turned up, you know what I mean? But it's all love between those two and everybody knows that."

It didn't take long for Ross to get through to them either. After Wale responded to Meek on Instagram, they both went silent on the subject. "That's why you seen whatever was said, the little brotherly jabs and then that was it," he pointed out. "That's all you're going to see."

Settling their difference was about reminding Wale and Meek that MMG is a family unit. "They're two real dudes, two successful dudes, and we all came from the same place," Ross continued. "When I first brought them on the the team, we all drove to our first video set together. It was just us three and I felt we all was at the bottom at the time. You know, Wale was in his new situation, Meek in his first situation, and me in my very first situation being a CEO, being a boss with my own label deal. So we all was on the same flow, and once we mention that, it's all good."

Now that the fight is behind them, MMG's concern is supporting Meek while he's behind bars. The 27-year-old Philly rapper was sentenced to three to six months late last week for probation violation.
