Southern rapper Rick Ross has addressed speculation on whether or not his Def Jam labelmate Young Jeezy is trying to put him on blast with the recent release of his own version of "Blowin' Money Fast (B.M.F.)."
From Ross' perspective, he is still on good terms with the "Snowman" but was perplexed with Jeezy's decision to make "The Real Blowin' Money Fast" track.
"I haven't had a chance to talk to the homie," Ross said. "I really don't know what the thought process was behind it. My record was called 'Blowin' Money Fast.' It confused me that if it was called 'The Real B.M.F.,' I would have called it 'The Black Mafia Family.' ... You know, you may have to ask him. Other than that, we still reppin', we still riding, and [my] record is getting love everywhere. So it's all good." (MTV)
Since Jeezy's release, the Atlanta, Georiga emcee has now put out another possible subliminal track directed at Ross called "Death Before Dishonor (B.M.F. Remix)."
Released today, Jeezy's "Death Before Dishonor (B.M.F. Remix)" has the following verse. "How you blowin' money fast? You don't know the crew / Are you part of the fam? Sh*t, I never knew / Y'all was supposed to make it hard, this is easy, h*e / "Pull up in that triple white," I think I'm Jeezy, hoe." When leaked to media today, Def Jam employees referred to the song as "the most controversial record of this year," although no formal confirmation of the diss has been made. Although Ross' name is never mentioned, many speculate that Jeezy is confronting his Def Jam label-mate. (Hip Hop DX)
