Young Jeezy is denying reports that his new track is aimed at his fellow Def Jam affiliate Rick Ross.

As previously reported a Jeezy track hit the net titled “Death Before Dishonor” that donned the beat of Ross’ hit “Blowing Money Fast.”

In the track Jeezy seemed to diss Ross, mocking his weight and questioning his ties to Big Meech and his Black Mafia Family.

The Atlanta rapper says not so however and called into MTV News to clear the air.

Jeezy tells MTV the track was not meant to be a diss and if Ross or anyone else feels otherwise, it’s because they’re “insecure.”


“It’s not a diss. First of all, I’m not gonna get nothing out of dissing that guy. That’s one. What am I gonna get out of dissing him? I think sometimes people can read into things too deep. They trippin’ man. They crazy out there. Basically, if homie takes that as a diss, he’s insecure, and anybody else out there who does, they are insecure.”

Jizzle also says that he tried at his hand at the BMF track because he has real life ties to the former multi-million dollar drug trafficking ring. While he says he wasn’t taking shots at Ross, he did admit to “talking Shyte” on the track. [Isn’t that the same thing?]

“That’s for real…That’s for anybody. I got n*gas in prison behind that Isht I feel that if you speaking on Shyte, you gotta at least know who you talking about. That’s like n*ggas speaking on Cash Money: If he ain’t never been a part of Cash Money, [then] I’mma speak it better if I’m a part of Cash Money. To me, [BMF] was real. I know all the members. Who else would say a line like that, but me? I’m one of the few people who can say that, so I said it. That’s real life, though. You gotta know th’e crew, baby. I thought that was the purpose of the game: to get on records and talk your Shyte, right?”

According to Jeezy, he doesn’t need to throw sublimal shots because “what’s understood ain’t gotta be said.” He also blames the rise of social media for the hype surrounding the track.

“Subliminals, for what?” What’s understood ain’t gotta be said. I didn’t think people would take the record like that. I did it like I would have any Shawty Lo record, any Rocko record, whoever. I got on [Ross’ beat] and did it like how I do it, the best way I know how. I don’t know if because the BMF situation is for real for me that everybody is like, ‘Ooh. Oh, Isht’ Twitter is a muthaFawka, by the way…”

Let’s listen to “Death Before Dishonor” again.

Do you believe him?
