News: Rick Ross Gives 50 Cent Pass After Diddy Attack
Tuesday, Mar 4, 2014 7:43PM
G-Unit head 50 Cent no longer has to worry about shots being fired his way courtesy of Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross following an Instagram gag aimed at him and close pal Diddy this week.
Despite Fif's direct attack, reports claim the "Bawse" has bigger things on his mind than a response.
50 Cent may have been hoping to start a blood feud when he publicly insinuated Rick Ross and Diddy were gay lovers ... but sources close to Ross tell us there will be NO reprisals. Sources tell us Ross won't retaliate for one simple reason -- he doesn't give a crap about 50 Cent or anything he says -- he thinks 50 is IRRELEVANT. 50 briefly posted a pic on Instagram Sunday showing Ross leaning in close to Diddy as if they're about to kiss ... with a caption that said, 'something ain't right' -- with the clear implication the rappers are gay.

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")
Earlier the same year, Ross' protégé Meek Mill said his relationship with Fif dated back to his pre-fame days.
"Eh, you know, what they got going on, they grown men, it's been going on for a long time," Meek said in an interview referring to the rift between Ross and 50. "If I could, I would. I knew 50 before I even got signed with Ross. So, you know, when I signed with Ross, I couldn't just act like I didn't like 50 at all, that'd a be fake of me, so, if I could, I would. I don't like seeing nobody I know go through anything. I don't want to be in the middle one day and you got to choose sides or anything like that." ("Sway In The Morning")
