Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is focused on leaving the past behind him after being asked about his status with one-time rap foe 50 Cent on "Chelsea Lately" this week.
Although quick to dismiss the 50 questions, Ricky Rozay dished on expanding his popular Wingstop fast food restaurant franchise.
"Not at all," Ross told Chelsea Handler when asked about his situation with 50. "I'm really through talking about dog. When I look up at the scoreboard, we're winning big. [laughs] ... I started with one [Wingstop restaurant] and then it grew into something a lot more. Multiple [spots]. We've got a few and I'm actually in the process of acquiring 25 new franchishes. Yeah, it's 25."

Recently, Ross spoke on Fif's comical fiction "Pimpin Curly" persona.
"I mean, was he in his Pimpin' Curly mode? If he wasn't in Pimpin' Curly you know I ain't really move. ... You know we ain't got time for that. We winning. Check the scoreboard. We running the numbers up high. Other than that put the wigs on for us. That's when we enjoyed it and we laughed. Put the wigs on. You know what I mean? Go back to that. Other than that we gon' keep getting this money." ("The Breakfast Club")
Last month, Ross said he felt throwing himself into a war with Curtis Jackson in 2009 was a win-win.
Rick Ross' beef with 50 Cent is nothing but a chess game. While on a press run for his Mastermind album, Rozay spoke to Huff Post Live about sparring with 50 during the early years of his career. "At the end of the day, it's all about chess, you know what I mean. When you don't have nothing to lose, like I didn't at that point, it really ain't matter," says Ross. Nowadays, few people can garner the Bawse's attention. "The position I'm in now, there's certain things you have to bring to the table to even catch my attention," he explains. (Complex)
Over the fall, Ross said he believed their rift held little significance in light of real-life problems his associates deal with daily.
"You know, at the end of the day where we come from when it's real you see real things happening. I got homeboys. I got to look at they kids and they no longer here. I got they moms and the holiday time," Ross explained when asked about the 50 beef. "That's what be on my mind sometimes. So, I done dealt with real things in real life. So, when you see that type of--I just call it buffoonery or whatever it is, I was enjoying it too. So, it's like I could have fun too with it. You know what I'm saying? And then at the end of the day I always felt like I'm the one with nothing to lose. I was like this a bad decision for homie to make. You gotta do your homework. You gotta watch--you gotta know what's going on before you just [start problems]." ("The Breakfast Club")
