Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross recently discussed his publicized dispute with one-time rival Jeezy and explained how they managed to bury the hatchet.
Despite the speculation, Ricky Rozay said he never had a serious problem with his fellow Def Jam comrade.
“It was me and Jeezy running into each other. It was one of those moments when his crew was on one side of the door and mine was on the other side of the door. I don’t want to disclose that location yet. I wasn’t expecting it, but when we saw each other, we clarified all the misunderstandings and miscommunications. At the end of the day, I never had a problem with him and it was vice versa. We never lost money together. Nobody ever got hurt. It was just a lot of talk. We said, “Let’s do it for the game. The culture is bigger than us.”” (TIME)
Last week, Ross revealed they ran into one another during a chance encounter and talked things out like bosses.
“Right,” Ross said when radio host Angie Martinez referenced the feud coming to an end. “[Is it really squashed?] Most definitely. You know at the end of the day, it was never any bloodshed or any money loss between us. So to a real boss, anything other than that is small talk. That’s something you can fix. We ran into each other and it just so happened his team of homies was on the other side of the door and my team was. It most definitely was a [tense moment], you don’t know how it’s gonna go down. But you know, we both just bossed up, chopped it up. We did it for the South, we did it for the culture.” (“The Angie Review”)
Footage from their “War Ready” music video surfaced online last month.
Rick Ross and Jeezy put their beef aside and went in front of the cameras to shoot a video for their collaboration “War Ready” during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. Gun shots rang out as the hip-hop titans turned a warehouse into a violent battlefield in the TAJ-directed clip. “History. Bet that,” tweeted TAJ. (Rap-Up)
While he would not take full credit, Atlanta rapper T.I. recently said he spoke to Jeezy about hooking up with Ricky Rozay.
“I ain’t gonna say I brokered peace and got them in the studio, I simply said to one of my closest partners in the game — Young Jeezy — I simply said to him, ‘We done did as much as we can do with this. It’s gone as far as we can take it, ain’t nothing else to do’,” he told MTV News on Tuesday while he was driving up to Los Angeles. (MTV)
