Rick Ross has wasted no time in continuing his war of words with G-Unit by releasing a new video blog sarcastically questioning Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo‘s loyalty to 50 Cent and announcing plans for his new anti-50 Cent site.
Aside from some violent challenges to 50 Cent, in his latest video the “Boss” references G-Unit associate and producer Sha Money XL.
“F*cking monkeys, you work for me,” Ross said in the clip. “Your neighborhood don’t respect you, I was just out in Queens. Shout-out to [Bang Em] Smurf…I’mma keep disrespectin’ you until you bow down…Tony Yayo, you 48 years old and been snortin’ powder for 40…, I’mma keep sonnin’ you for the rest of your life…Sha Money, he gonna fire you again, you know whenever he feel himself, he fire all y’all n*ggas. So next time he fire you, Sha Money, come work for me…Tony Yayo, when the last time he took your grandma shopping? Lloyd Banks, y’all been loyal to this n*gga, y’all should kill this n*gga at the next meeting and come holla at me, I’ll give you $100,000…I made you pay to buy ThisIsCurly.com, now I got ThisIsSabrinasSin.com.” (World Star Hip Hop)
Along with Ross’ statements, he has also said the rap battle would prove how much better of a lyricist he is than 50.
“My freestyles as you could hear them, ‘Kiss My Pinky Ring,’ I do them in 20 minutes and put them out there,” he said in an interview. “Those crumble empires. People listening to how potent the music is. That’s all this really is for me. I’m not really excited yet. All this is a platform for me to show people how talented I am. How much better of a lyricist I am. So if  sold 10 [million], my next album should sell 12.” (MTV News)
While Ross’ calling out of Fif may strike a cord with the G-Unit leader, rappers like Busta Rhymes have warned about the consequences of making things become physical.
“I’m a big fan of Rick Ross,” Busta said in an interview. “I’m a big fan of 50. I just feel like it’s great entertainment, I just hope it stays that way…When it’s to the street, it ain’t about the rhymes anymore. It’s about poppin’ somebody’s head off and compromising somebody’s well-being.” (Miss Info)
50’s latest antic was a cartoon-based spoof called “Officer Ricky: Welcome to Death Row.”
“Saturday Cartoons Presents ‘Officer Ricky: Welcome to Death Row,’ the episode’s description reads. “50’s fourth episode of Officer Ricky at his best once again as he arrests the one that he previously looked up to: Ex-CEO of Death Row, Suge Knight featuring Akon, DJ Khaled, T.I.” (This Is 50)
