On the verge of dropping the long-delayed Thug Motivation 103 LP, Atlanta’s Young Jeezy has finally laid his Rick Ross issues to rest and said he has never had a serious problem with the “Boss.”
Talking to DJ Whoo Kid this week, Jeezy said his main focus these days is strictly on the music.
“I don’t think there’s a conclusion to it, because it was really nothing to me in the beginning. I don’t need propaganda to sell my records, I never have. I always did my music. When it’s album time, people do crazy things,” he said. “I’m a real one. I don’t do beef. If there’s a problem, let’s get into it. Let’s get it done. There ain’t nothing to talk about.” (Radio Planet TV)
Prior to Rick Ross suffering two seizures last month, he summed up the overall problem between him and Jeezy.
“You gotta understand, when you talk about this street life and being one hundred and being solid, it’s certain things that you just bring to a person,” Ross added. “That’s what I was expecting. And that never happened. However homie feel, that’s him. Just all the way being real — we were just at the BET Awards, and I sat in the front row, and he performed. If it’s any pressure, handle it right then.” (Hot 97)
Over the summer, DJ Khaled, who shares ties between both rap stars, said they were on good terms.
“Well first of all, I don’t condone problems,” Khaled explained in an interview with radio host Bootleg Kev. “That’s what I do. I represent that love and making great music. And them two guys, they don’t have no problems. So, you know, I guess this is an exclusive, they don’t have problems. I guess people in the streets, they try to make things into a problem. But that’s just life. That’s when you know you’re hot and that’s just part of the game, man. Being in the game and being successful, you have to deal with things like that. But you know, they ain’t got not problems. It’s all love. I don’t know what to tell you. It’s all love.” (Bootleg Kev)
Last fall, Ricky Rozay responded to footage of Jeezy taunting him in Miami.
“I actually got to see the footage of him walking on South Beach down Collins Ave and he played his self,” Ross told Tim Westwood. “You gotta come across the bridge to Carol City…to Little Haiti. That’s where you get your issues–Washington Ave. What’s crazy about that is when they ask about my name, they still don’t really have a direct answer. That ain’t gangster at all. If you really got an issue, put it on the table like a G. Walking down Collins Ave, you played yourself. You’ll get that took from you.” (BBC Radio)
