After Rick Ross dropped his latest track “Idols Become Rivals” off his Rather You Than Me album, and dissed Cash Money Records founder Birdman, the Internet went ablaze, but according to Birdman, he’s unfazed.
“I don’t get caught up in hoe sh*t. I just keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing. I don’t get caught up in that, I don’t play like that. I’m a man and I stand my ground and I do my thing. Numbers don’t lie, and that’s all I give a f**k about: numbers and puttin’ them up.”
Before the drop, Rozay stated in regards to the track’s target, “It’s basically me writing a letter to someone in the game that I looked up to damn near the most. I hate what things have come to.”
“Damn Stunna, I hate it came to this. Rap game so much f**k sh*t done. That’s why this .45 in my Trukfit trunks / F**k a skateboard, I went and got a Wraith, boy / Catholic record labels, ni**as gettin’ raped, boy / Birdman’s a priest, moans in his synagogue / Publishin’ is a sin, repent, forgive me, Lord.”
The Maybach Music Group founder has since confirmed he was only sticking up for Lil Wayne, “the level of respect and love that I have for Wayne makes it hard to sit back and not speak on the situation.”
A grateful Wayne acknowledged Rozay in a tweet, saying, “Dam big bro that msg hit me in the heart and put the motivation on automatik start. I needed that. 1 boss 2 another.”
