Rick Ross and Jeezy showed the hip-hop world that they can do more together as collaborators than they can as rap adversaries. Now, after the release of their highly touted get-together, “War Ready,” fans are in for another treat, Rozay reveals.
“We knocked out two records. One is mine, one is his,” Ross told “RapFix Live” host Sway when he appeared on Wednesday’s show.
Ross, DJ Khaled and MMG’s Fat Trel came onto the show to talk about Rozay’s brand-new Mastermind album and dissect all that went into recording the LP. The Maybach Music boss says that his hook-up with the Snowman wasn’t some grand rap scheme — things just happened to work out.
“It wasn’t nothing that was planned. It wasn’t planned at all,” Ross confirmed. “Me and [Jeezy] ran into each other — my homeys over there, his homeys on the other side of the door — and we just chopped it up,” he added of Jeezy, who he had a well-publicized skirmish with backstage at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards.
“Where I’m from, if you ain’t shed no blood, if you ain’t lose no money behind it, it’s really small talk,” Rozay continued. “When me and him chopped it up, we did it like bosses and said, ‘Let’s set an example for the next set of entrepreneurs. It’s bigger than us. Let’s do it for the South, let’s do it for the game.’ ”
The Mike Will Made It-produced track finds the former foes trading bullying bars over pulsating 808s and pounding drums. Ross didn’t give much information about the pair’s next collaboration, however. “You’ll be hearing something else,” the tight-lipped MMG boss said.
