It may be deeper than rap, but it was only a matter of time until Rick Ross opened up about the attempt on his life in his rhymes. On Tuesday (February 20), Rozay spit a few bars alongside Gucci Mane and Birdman on the remix to Young Scooter’s underground single “Columbia.”
“Chickens like the Wing Stop/ N—a tried to kill me, but I had the thing cocked,” he rhymed at a slow and measured pace, alluding that he wasn’t exactly helpless during the shooting.
The Maybach Music mastermind followed up the line with a direct reference to the Rolls Royce Phantom that he crashed into a building trying to evade the shots. “They think I know the voodoo/How they keep showing my Ghost on that Channel 2,” he said, throwing a nod to all the news coverage he has been receiving of late.
Rozay, has been pretty quiet about the January 28 drive-by. He spoke to MTV News on the 2013 Grammy red carpet , but other than that, the Boss has been pretty tight-lipped. “[There are] no suspects and we not here to speculate on any suspects,” he told MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway. “I’m just staying positive, I’m moving forward and I’m just staying on top of my game.”
The Boss did admit that we has taken some measures to protect himself, but ultimately he just plans to live his life. “You most definitely gotta make some adjustments, but at the same time I’mma live my life and I’mma do what I love to do, and that’s make music,” he said.
Later this year, Ross plans to drop his sixth solo LP Mastermind and it’s a safe bet that he’ll creatively open up about the incident a little bit more.
