Last month, in an interview with Billboard, Rick Ross teased a diss that would appear on his upcoming album, “Rather You Than Me,” saying it was to “someone he looked up to” his entire career. Now, it has been confirmed that the person he was referring to was Birdman.On his new leaked song “Idols Become Rivals,” Ross opens with memories of looking up to his former idol before learning that everything wasn’t as it seemed.
“I used to see you n*ggas on my TV screen And wondered what was life like, was it all a dream? And then I met you out on LiveNation dates came to the realization that your watch was fake Damn… you nearly broke my heart I really thought you niggas really owned them cars
You stole them boys pub and bought a foreclosure Scott Storch demons in it, which is more poison I handed over records, never charged a coin But consist the sentiment, I’m talkin’ all alone All Miami issues, Rozay handle for him
I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne his entire life, he gave you what there was to gain I watched this whole debacle so I’m part to blame Last request, can all producers please get paid?”
Ross ends the track speaking directly to Birdman. He says:
“Can’t believe this shit homie. Still love you n*gga. But how the fuck you touch half a billion n*gga, and your team starving n*gga? You on an island n*gga. You came to my city my n*gga. I let you in my city n*gga. What hurt me most is how you did my brother Khaled n*gga. Khaled was loyal to you n*gga…. You put my n*gga in a hole homie. I don’t feel you for that my n*gga.”
Birdman has yet to respond to the leaked diss track. However, Rick Ross’ “Rather You Than Me” is set for release tomorrow (March 17), so maybe he will respond then. What do you think?
