After weeks of speculation and teases, Maybach Music Group head Rick Ross has unleashed his long-awaited "War Ready" music video with one-time rap foe Jeezy.
The highly-anticipated dark visual premiered online Friday (March 7).
Enemies become friends in the video for "War Ready." Rick Ross joins forces with his former rival Jeezy and his MMG signee Tracy T in the action-packed visuals, shot during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. Gun shots ring out as the hip-hop titans turn a warehouse into a violent battlefield in the TAJ-directed clip, which features cameos from Meek Mill, YG, DJ Khaled, and DJ Mustard. (Rap-Up)
While he would not take full credit, Atlanta rapper T.I. recently said he spoke to Jeezy about hooking up with Ricky Rozay.
"I ain't gonna say I brokered peace and got them in the studio, I simply said to one of my closest partners in the game -- Young Jeezy -- I simply said to him, 'We done did as much as we can do with this. It's gone as far as we can take it, ain't nothing else to do'," he told MTV News on Tuesday while he was driving up to Los Angeles. (MTV)
The "King of the South" also shared some thoughts on the rappers' "War Ready" anthem.
"If it ain't nothing that can't be talked about, that hasn't gone so far that a motherf--ker can't come back and do what the f--- we do man, get money. War costs money," Tip said. "Young ain't the type of mother---er you can just tell what to do, but if you can present something that makes more sense then what he had, go on, he will give you the opportunity to make it make sense to him. And I think the same for Ross. They exhausted all of their other possible opportunities." (MTV)
Despite a publicized rift between one another over these last few years, recent reports revealed Tip spoke to the "Snowman" to remind him about the importance of business affairs.
You'll recall ... the Ross/Jeezy beef goes way back ... and got nuclear at the BET Hip Hop Awards two years ago when the two rappers tangled backstage and shots were fired in the parking lot. Sources close to both men tell TMZ those days are gone -- as is the bad blood -- all thanks to T.I., who had a kumbaya moment with Jeezy. T.I. told us he had a heart-to-heart with Jeezy and got him to see he had taken his eye off the ball. He was focusing on bad blood rather than what was important -- MAKING MONEY. Jeezy saw the light and Rick ended up seeing things the same way. (TMZ)
