Rick Ross recently took a few jabs at G-Unit in the aftermath of his publicized rap beef with 50 Cent and said he is still waiting for his foes to drop a number one album.
According to Ross, the rapper benefited financially from his taunts at 50's camp earlier this year.
"I made more money, you know what I mean, after you crush such a huge donkey," Ross said referring to 50. "I'm the only one that put out a number one album and we in this business to put out records and put up numbers and generate funds and as you can see, I'm putting out another number one album while [G-Unit] hasn't put out one. So it's elementary to me and I think they learned their lesson, they know to keep going, R.I.P. Hold up, let's give a moment of silence, it's only right to bow our heads for Lloyd Banks. I pray my career don't be like Lloyd Banks'." (Real Talk NY)
Banks previously spoke on Ross and compared his own selling ability to the Miami rapper.
"You got fat, corny n*ggas like Rick Ross, it's just so easy to actually make records," Banks explained in an interview. "He's gotta ride his wave as long as he can. You know, the funny part, he's always talking about his success and sh*t that he did, he need to check my record-selling background. This the sh*t that be killing me, shut up n*gga. I got the diamond tester too, I'm gonna have it at the next awards show too...[His album signing in New York,] it was like minus two people there. That n*gga had barricades lined up like he Justin Timberlake or something. Who the f*ck is you, n*gga...That n*gga's not even half of what I am [lyrically.] That n*gga nowhere near where I'm at, man. You crazy? I'm on another planet somewhere, better get the f*ck outta here with that sh*t." (Radio Planet TV)
In addition to interviews, Banks has also resorted to diss songs including "Officer Down" to address Ross.
"Too easy man, can't a motherf*cker 'round you see me/You need an AK and a Genie, a whole pound of Wheaties," Banks raps. "He been talking 'bout the weight he push/Used to punch the clock in jail/Drove his mama car around/Now he got what you want for sale/See it, I bought it/It's official if I flaunt it...We'll be here long after you disappear/This is proof/One fifty one in the booth...You Super Thug/I'm kryptonite/Sleep with me, your b*tch just might/Same promotion, different fight...This is like practice/Pay your taxes before you spit my name all backwards...50 bodies you, I just lay the chalk around." ("Officer Down")
50 recently said Ross and Triple C's new album, Custom Cars & Cycles, would not be successful upon hitting store shelves next week.
"Triple Cs is next," Fif promised. "And then Rick Ross is going to follow that failure. Def Jam dumped a whole lot of marketing dollars into trying combat me with Rick Ross. More money than they should have. What his numbers were versus what Jadakiss did, didn't make financial sense. So the next go-around, they're going to give him his fair share instead that extra piece of pie. Then you're going to see where he really is." (Complex)
