Rappers Slim Thug and Rick Ross have ceased any chances of a possible beef brewing between one another and released a new record called “Paid The Cost.”
On the record, Slim and Ross exchange verses and pay homage to each’s respective Southern region.
“If it ain’t about money then I ain’t involved,” Slim raps, “If them numbers add up, then it’s problem solved/Think like a boss, move like a boss — Said I’m shining like a light bulb/And if you f*ck with real n*ggas, then you gonna like Thug/MIA to the H, Dade to the loft, me and Ross teaching n*ggas how to be the boss.” (“Paid The Cost”)
Proving the song was not an outdated or unreleased track, Ross posted a link to it via his Twitter page.
“expect the unexpected today.,” he tweeted Friday (September 3).

Tensions recently grew between both emcees after Ross’ “King Boss” name checked Slim Thug.
“I be in it for a minute,” Ross raps referring to a female companion. “She dated Slim Thug, but now she f*ck with me/She finally made it to the biggest boss, luckily/Rick Ross, see my life dog, similar to Phife Dawg’s…” (“King Boss”)
Thug questioned the song via Twitter and also dissed Ross.
“Just threw @rickyrozay cd out the roof of the coupe haters get no play in my ride,” Slim tweeted Sunday (August 29).
“Naw yall ain’t gotta stop f*cking wit him for me I just heard what he had to say about me so if u dnt f*ck wit me I dnt f*ck wit u #datsall.”
“I reached out ask if it was a diss if it was old he shoulda just said dat but no response to me mean he still feel like dat.” (Slim Thug’s Twitter)
