Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross has no problem addressing anything in 2019. The hip-hop veteran has responded to getting ripped by rap star Nicki Minaj.
Ross appeared on “The Breakfast Club” this week and explained his feelings toward protégé Meek Mill’s former flame.
“Nah,” Ross said when asked if he had run into Nicki. “I mean, if somebody meet Obama with you, she is a keeper. Until you find out otherwise. You know what I mean? Me, personally, nah, she was around me a few times but other than that, she was a huge talent but she was in-between Meek and Drake at the time. She don’t know or she might not understand coming from a big homie like myself, playing that position, that was a very fragile role. It would be very easy to put that responsibility on her. But that ain’t what I tried to make it too. But most definitely when I saw it go the sour, it would be easy to assume that she didn’t have something to do with it. And if somebody tell you they didn’t, they lying.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Rap star 50 Cent went to Instagram Wednesday to shout-out Nicki for going in-in on his longtime rap rival.
In a recent interview, Ross said while he doesn’t have any active beef with Fif, he saw a music collaboration extremely unlikely.
“Honestly, I’m a businessman. If 50 Cent still had value, I may have been done it. But not being funny, homie just ain’t that dude no more. We was riding through L.A. smoking to ‘Hate It or Love It’ yesterday. That sh*t was dope. We was saluting Cool & Dre, that’s Miami who did the production. Game, 50 Cent… That was dope. If he was still making music like that, of course. Drake could hit me, and say, ‘Rozay I got 50 on the record.’ And if he was still dope like he was eight years ago? Rozay will lace that.” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
50 Cent almost immediately addressed Ross’ comments and questioned Ricky’s own value.
“I don’t know what his value is to music culture at this moment. I never made music with him. I don’t have interest in making music with him. A lot of these guys, even when you make reference to music culture and stuff like that, they’re one-trick ponies, so they’re going to be gone. In hip-hop, they say it’s not what have you done, what have you done for me lately, right? So you could get next to the guys that got momentum and try and survive based on that. But, it’s not a lot going on there.” (Complex)
