Tensions between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy may be heating up once again as the “Boss” has responded to footage showing his Def Jam labelmate taunting him in Miami.
Speaking with radio personality Tim Westwood, Ross responded to Jeezy’s video.
“I actually got to see the footage of him walking on South Beach down Collins Ave and he played his self,” Ross told 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)
Jeezy’s footage began to circulate across the Internet earlier this month.
Last week, a viral video of Jeezy began making its rounds. The clip featured Jeezy in Miami, and while he never mentioned Ross by name, when an unidentified interviewer asked about the beef, there was little mistaking who Jeezy was talking about. “Where your favorite rapper at?” Jeezy asked. “I don’t see that n*gga. I’m on the streets…come out here, n*gga. Whatever n*ggas wanna do. I’m out here.” (Hip Hop DX)
Tensions between Ross and Jeezy escalated after Triple C’s member Torch called out the “Snow Man” last summer.
“#JeezyWhyUMad BMF the Biggest Rekord in the Kountry & Even tho that’s the name of Ya Krew Yo Lame a** Kouldnt kome up with That.”
“#JeezyWhyUMad GUCCI went in Jail Hotter Than U Kame Home & He Still Hotter Than U & Now His lil Nikka Waka Hotter in the Streetz than U2.”
“#JeezyWhyUMad Sneak Dissing the Only way U Kan Be Relevant out here?? #Hating4Sukka’s!!!” (Torch’s Twitter)
Jeezy later came forward to put to rest rumors about his “Death Before Dishonor” summer track subliminally dissing Ross.
“It’s not a dis,” Jeezy said in an interview. “First of all, I’m not gonna get nothing out of dissing that guy. That’s one. What am I gonna get out of dissing him? I think sometimes people can read into things too deep. They trippin’, man. They crazy out there. Basically, if homie takes that as a dis, he’s insecure…Subliminals, for what? … What’s understood ain’t gotta be said. I didn’t think people would take the record like that. I did it like I would have any Shawty Lo record, any Rocko record, whoever. I got on [Ross’ beat] and did it like how I do it, the best way I know how. I don’t know if because the BMF situation is for real for me that everybody is like, ‘Ooh. Oh, sh–.’ Twitter is a muthaf—a, by the way.” (MTV)
