West Coast newcomer Kreayshawn has finally addressed a recent freestyle she performed name checking Maybach Music Group’s Rick Ross with, simply stating there was no negative intention behind it.
Admitting she does not know Ricky Rozay, Kreay explained how his name appeared on her freestyle.
“I feel like with anything, you’re painting a picture. I’ve never, ever intentionally dissed anybody my whole career, and I don’t do that personally with friends either,” the Bay Area rapper said. “I’m not like a person to go against anyone or anything. So hey, no offense to you Rick Ross. There’s no Rick Ross offensive things going on in there, even though it sounds like it.” (MTV)
In her freestyle, Kreayshawn takes a shot at Ross’ past career as a corrections officer.
“I’m about to grab a knife, you tryin’ to play me like a boss/But you faker than Rick Ross/I’ll f*cking cut your d*ck off/Like Lorena Bobbit/Yeah, I’m Kreayshawn, and you can’t stop it.” (“Cosmic Kev”)
Last April, rapper Shyne aired out Ross for his past ties.
“The difference between me and everybody else, I was talking to Fat Joe the other day when he was like, ‘Yo, it’s entertainment,’ and I was like, ‘That’s the difference between me and a former correction officer or any of these other dudes.’ It’s not entertainment for me. You dig? Whatever I give you, is me…[I’m definitely talking about] Rick Ross. Absolutely. He’s the only officer I know that’s a rapper. I don’t know anybody else that used to be a cop that raps…Hip-Hop comes from the gutter, it’s from the struggle, from the dudes that’s in prison so for a dude that used to lock dudes in, for the dude that used to be like, ‘Yo, on the wake up! You got a visit,’ for that dude to turn into the biggest gangsta rapper is like shocking to me. I don’t even understand that. That makes no sense to me…” (Superstar Radio)
Despite the hype surrounding his image, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy recently defended Ross.
“Rick Ross is just one rapper out of many that we’ve been reaching out to,” P added. “Number one, aight, he a correction officer. Aight, so what? I know a lot of cops, I know a lot of corrections officers. I know some people that’s on the other side of the criminal sh*t — and just because you got that job or whatever, whatever, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you a part of the people that’s trying to target us and f*ck with us. Not all of the law enforcement gets down like that. It’s a select few of them that do…That doesn’t bother me that he was a corrections officer. Like, so what?” (This Is 50)
