UPDATE: Rick Ross Defends Going At Baby For Lil Wayne, Says "Love & Respect" Sparked Diss Song
Maybach Music Group's Rick Ross has no shame in going at Birdman. The hip-hop heavyweight has defended taking an ample shot at the Cash Money boss.
Yung Renzel went to Instagram Thursday (March 16) and revealed his admiration for estranged Cash Money artist Lil Wayne inspired his hard-hitting leaked "Idols Become Rivals" diss song.
On the newly leaked song, Ross does not hold back on blasting Birdman.
"I grew up on that Cash Money/"Bling Bling" was well-known to flash money," begins Rozay. "I used to see you n--s on my TV screen / And wonder what was life like, was it all a dream / And then I met you out on Live Nation dates / Came to the realization that your watch was fake / Damn, you nearly broke my heart / I thought you n--s really owned them cars." ... "I used to look up to you n-a," he pauses and reflects. He even name-drops Baby's close cohort, Mannie Fresh: "Look you in your eyes before I say good night / And pray that Mannie Fresh will get to see the light." (Billboard)
Ross also gets personal about his past feelings for Birdman and speaks up Wayne.
"Damn Stunna, I love you n-a, I hate it came to see this," Rozay adds before alleging that Birdman stole artists' publishing money to cop his riches. He even takes it into Lil Wayne territory: "I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne / His entire life, he gave you what that was the game / I watched this whole debacle so I'm part to blame / Last request, can all producers please get paid?" (Billboard)
Last month, Ricky Rozay revealed he would take aim at someone on his "Idols Become Rivals" song.
"I've got a record titled "Idols Become Rivals" and it's basically me writing a letter to someone in the game that I looked up to damn near the most and I hate what things have come to. So I have so many different records, approaches. Me and Nas, the way we rapped on "Powers That Be" - we not in control, is it the higher-ups? Or are we the higher-ups? Are we the powers that be? I'm just really ready for these records to get into the streets so that people can hear the excitement in my voice and the music, the way me and Future, the collaborations... I did a record titled "Dead Presidents," I'm so excited for that to hit the streets." (Billboard)
