On Friday, Rick Ross liberated his ninth studio album Rather You Than Me, which (among other incredible moments) features a blistering attack on Birdman titled “Idols Become Rivals.” On that track, the Maybach Music commander-in-chief airs out the Cash Money general over his treatment of past collaborators in regards to money — including now-estranged son/artist Lil Wayne:
I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne
His entire life, he gave you what there was to gain
I watched this whole debacle so I’m part to blame
Last request, can all producers please get paid?
Sometime shortly after the song’s release, Billboard had a chance to speak to Birdman over the diss…unfortunately, all the rap mogul seems to care about is money:
I don’t get caught up in hoe s***, man. I just keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing… I don’t get caught up in that, I don’t play like that. I’m a man and I stand my ground and I do my thing. Numbers don’t lie, and that’s all I give a f*** about: numbers, and puttin’ them up.
If anything, this quote certainly won’t clear his name of any accusations.
