DJ Khaled Addresses Rick Ross Name-Dropping Him In Baby Beef: "Birdman's My Friend" [Video]
We The Best CEO DJ Khaled has finally caved in and discussed Rick Ross' now-infamous "Idols Become Rivals" Birdman diss song. Specifically, the Miami hitmaker addressed Ricky Rozay name-dropping him on the hard-hitting track.
In a new interview, Khaled said he would always ride behind Ross and admitted he had no ill will toward former business partner Birdman.
"Ross is basically saying, 'Khaled, he don't complain. He keep it moving.' I think y'all know me as a person. Y'all never heard me come and talk about people and stuff like that. He's basically saying, 'Yo, Khaled, You blessed. Keep winning. Don't stop.' ... Birdman, that's my friend. I wanna be clear. As far as anybody that has a situation, I pray and I hope that people can talk to each other and work things out. Birdman, all that is is, you know, at one point I just moved on with We the Best. I got nothing but love for Birdman. They gave me an opportunity. I appreciate every opportunity that's ever given to me. It doesn't matter what happens to the opportunity, it's an opportunity." ("The Breakfast Club")
This week, Cash Money's Turk addressed Rick Ross name-dropping him on "Idols Become Rivals."
"I think Rick Ross is a great rapper. He's a very good lyricist. He can put wordplay together. As far as speaking up for another man, he can't speak up for me. I respect a man for who he is. I respect Birdman. On my situation, me and Birdman dealt with our situation and we handled it like men which I think every situation should be dealt with anyway. I think if he did the record, he shouldn't say my name without hollering at me. I don't think he should have mentioned my name - I got love for everybody. It's just like a family, sometimes family fall out. ... That's not gonna fix the problem. It's gonna make another problem escalate and it doesn't have to be that." (TMZ)
Over the past few days, Ross has continued to promote his "Idols Become Rivals" music video.
Earlier in the week, Ricky Rozay unleashed his hard-hitting new video.
