Rick Ross Went After Birdman to Defend Lil Wayne
Rick Ross pulled no punches on his Birdman diss track “Idols Become Rivals.” The song made waves due to Ross' unfiltered views on the Cash Money Records founder’s business. In a new interview with Billboard, the Miami rapper said he went at Birdman for Lil Wayne.
“You know, I just think it’s so fucked up,” Ross noted. “Us seeing Lil Wayne’s [situation] and suffering from that, I think we kind of all got used to it. I think the culture has fucking accepted that Wayne would not put out another album. And that’s not the way the game [should be]. That’s not the way we designed this. That’s not the way this is supposed to be.”
Ross was particularly bothered by Birdman and Wayne's dispute going to court. The Miami rapper felt like Birdman should have never let it get to that point.
“When we come up from the mud together, it’s not supposed to be this way,” he said. “Birdman is supposed to be in that fucking building making those fucking people give him money to take care of his man. They supposed to be in the fucking [building], flipping over desks in those fucking offices, fighting to get money. Not fucking suing each other, fighting lawsuits and everybody starving. Not putting out music, not being creative. Us not doing what we came here for. There’s nothing more I hate than that -- us not doing what we came here for.”
