Rick Ross Responds To Young Jeezy Rift


By Alvin Blanco

While Rick Ross and Keri Hilson might be friends after collaborating on "The Way You Love Me," you can bet Young Jeezy is not on the Bawse’s Christmas list.

The Miami rapper has once again called out his Def Jam labelmate, this time in the pages of The Source magazine’s latest issue.

In the cover story, Ross takes issue with Jeezy’s subliminal jabs in song and in video that surfaced recently. Specifically, Ross feels Jeezy’s "BMF Freestyle" was definitely aimed at him despite the Snowman saying the contrary.

"I’m not sure what was going on," said Ross. "[The freestyle] was most definitely [disrespectful], whatever it was. Then the explanations seemed sideways, less than G."

The Bawse, who has recorded with Jeezy before ("Maybach Music 2"), was puzzled as to why the rapper didn’t come to him directly with any issues he may have had with "BMF (Blowin’ Money Fast)," the song at the heart of this debacle.

"It’s not like I’m in Miami and you in New York," said Ross. "We see each other. That’s the only issue I had. It was sideways. So I made a record, 'Summer’s Mine' just to [let him know], if we gonna play that sport, let’s put it on the table like men. If it was just a freestyle that the world took the wrong way, leave it alone. That’s how I took it."

The Source mag’s Man of the Year went on to say that the fact that he and Jeezy are labelmates has no impact on how he has or plans to handle their current war of words. Even if it is Def Jam CEO LA Reid making a call seeking some sort of truce.

"I don’t accept those kinda calls," said Ross. "I think they know that would have been an exercise in futility. Whatever it’s gonna be, it’s gonna be. If we gonna get money, we gonna get money. If it’s pressure, just put it on the table. I feel no way. I had nothing but love for the homie, but if me getting money in the streets or making music offended you, I can’t help that."

The December/January issue of The Source magazine featuring Rick Ross and Wiz Khalifa on its cover hits newsstands on December 14.
