Rick Ross was on The Breakfast Club this morning to promote his new album, Black Market. But the talk of the town is the candid way he expressed his disdain for Birdman’s treatment of Lil Wayne, and the shots he sent towards Drake.
As for “Color Money,” which puts its sights on Drizzy, Renzel didn’t back down.
“That record is what it is, ya dig?,” said Ross. “It’s a lot of different people that’s going to interpret it a lot of different ways, and it is what it is.”
He added, “Let’s see how it unfold. I don’t play no games.”
Ross also clarified that Lil Wayne is his homie, as is J. Prince. Thus meaning it was Birdman who he was hurling shots at with the “I got more money than that pu**y that your signed to” line. DJ Envy made sure to ask about his relationship with Birdman, and Renzel went in.
“I don’t have one with Birdman,” answered Ross. “If you read the Source magazine you would see that, ya know right now, and really me just seeing what Wayne going through as an artist. Him being a boss. Me idolizing Birdman at a time. Me looking up to Lil Wayne. Wayne being the first artist to make so many feats—not just as an artist but an artist coming from the South. That’s something that I took personal.”
Then he added, “So for me to see the way things are transpiring I can’t respect that. And I don’t respect that.”
Ross even admitted that Birdman was an influence on MMG, minus the whole allegations of jerking artists, of course.
“Of course he was, that’s why it hurt me to see what transpired,” said Ross of Birdman’s influence. “That’s what I wanted to build my team after.”
Black Market is out December 4. Watch Renzel spill the tea below.
