Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross has put an end to the talks of his issues with 50 Cent after going head-to-head with the face of G-Unit these past four years.
In Ricky Rozay’s opinion, 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 this 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”)
Meek also said both hip-hop stars should acknowledge how much money they could generate if they placed their egos to the side.
“I had plans on doing it,” Meek added. “If I ever see them around each other and I’m there, if I’m around, there ain’t going to be no fighting in there. … It’s just MMG as for now. [Without the feud,] there’s a lot of money to get.” (“Sway In The Morning”)
A few years ago, the “Boss” said he had no active beef with Fif despite a few exchanged diss records.
“That’s the beauty of art,” Ross told us. “You can take it and channel it any way you want to. Of course, I realize I put a lot of pollution out there as well that I wouldn’t this year. That was a part of me learning. I’ll forever be attracted to some form or fashion of war. I feel it’s competitive but at the same time, I’m focused on my numbers. I’m focused on my business. I’m focused on my brand. I wanna see other things blossom around me, versus back-and-forth with nothing. For the most part, I feel when you prioritize your business, that’s the result — that’s the advice I’ve been given for so long. I’m trying it out.” (MTV)
