RICK ROSS: “I Don’t Even Know Who You’re Talking About”

Few people were surprised earlier this week when former Terror Squad MC and Big Pun protégé Cuban Link released a scathing diss track aimed at TS boss Fat Joe. The two have engaged in an on-and-off war of words for years now and the track, called “You’re Not Hood” and recorded over DJ Khaled’s hit single “So Hood,” just seemed like the latest chapter in an ongoing saga. Less expected however were the seemingly random jabs at Khaled himself and Miami native Rick Ross.

Ross recently sat down with Complex magazine to discuss his new album, Trilla and his plans for the new year. When asked what his response to the sneak diss was, Ross stated that, while he hasn’t heard the track yet, listeners shouldn’t expect any type of response from him anytime soon.

“I don’t even acknowledge, you know what I’m saying, who ever you’re talking…and I don’t even know who you’re talking about, and I haven’t heard it. To make noise you have to be number one, and that’s what it’s about. You can’t get sidetracked for nobody or nothing.”

    Yall use that word to death and its ok?? but if someone else uses it all hell breaks loose it should be the same all around dont use the word if yall dont want anyone else to use it. I understand the reason yall dont like others using the word but shit……..

    • niggafrommemphis

      While it is a term,no,I don’t think a white person or alatino has the right to use that term cuz it could get one of them killed.It can be an endearing term and a hateful one,depending how you use it.I don’t use that word around others out of my race,besides a coupple of white hos’ i fuck with,cus if they get to comfortable they might get it twisted.Fat Joe ain’t a “nigga” in my opinion and that’s why I got a problem with him,i don’t give a fuck how many niggas he know,they some bitches if they let an outsider talk like they are one of us.Niggas ain’t gonna fuck with them like that,so it works both ways.FUCK ALL WHITE PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY CAN SAY THAT SHIT AND WALK AWAY WITH IT!!!

  • khalilamani

    Fat Joe uses the N-word because he is black! It’s evident you don’t anything about Puerto Rican culture. Take a trip to Puerto Rico and see how many people look like you (black) and Fat Joe (light-skinned). And while you’re traveling check out Cuba and see the stamp of Africa. That’s why J-Lo used the N-Word in her song a few years back. She grew up, knowing that she was part of African/black culture, thereby knowing she could get away with the N-word. Blacks, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Mexican… all non-white people get a pass using the N-word. I didn’t create this. It just is! Now get on a plane. one.

  • Shinob Shaw

    Aint puerto rocks part black isn’t that what besides nationality what seperates them from Chicanos? I don’t care if P-Rock says nigga! you cat’s got shit backwards! Kill all watered down Music! 7

  • stoneyisland

    You internet thugs kill me…now you got your panties ina bunch cuz a latino uses the word nigga??? You internet thugs dont seem to have a problem with a white person calling you nigga, why dont you load up the camino and drive to a white shopping mail and fuck up the first person you lay eyes on….Oh yeah I forgot you nigga’s only gangsta’s on line. Go kill yourself bitches

    • G

      Damn, all this time I wondered…why does everybody let this whiteboy get away with this, but Fat Joe is latino. Always thought he was Caucasian and Pun was Puerto Rican. Dude is pale tho

      Amsterdam is in the building!!!!!!!

  • iLLogikal da Beat Arkatech

    first off, Fat Joe is from P.R. in case some of ya’ll ignorant ass ppl out here dont know history, Puerto Rico has had black people living there ever since the Triangular Trade days. when sum spaniards brought slaves over and used the island as some type of pit stop. Along with all the other Caribbean islands. So there is a high chance that Fat Fuck Joe does have some black along his blood lien. As for Cuban Link, his father is Black and mom a native Cuban.

    anyways fuck Rick Ross. dude really is scared of Cuban Link. he has to be one of the most underrated rappers in NYC. hardest dude in the Boogie Down Bronx. Rick Ross just dont wanna get in a beef with him cuz he knows damn well that he be living in MIAMI. fuckin large population of Cubans there. come on know, who else brings u that raw shit that u all motherfuckers sell over here? Cuban Link actually is a legend. dude chilled with Pun back in the day as well. check his tracks out before any of u all start disrespecting a true mc.

  • http://www.yahoo.com what it do?

    If a latino cant use the word nigga. Than all you rappers shouldnt be wearing scareface shirts. Remember Scareface is a latino.

  • Ali

    that’s a good approach to it…cuz I don’t know who tha hell that is either lol

  • Rudeboy

    yo, im Puerto Rican and I made my bed in cities from Maryland, DC and now Florida. I have been sayin nigga all my life, cuz i was always raised in black/latino neighborhoods. even when i stepped in all black parties or picnics i talked the same and no one ever beefed with me. latinos use the same nigga word cuz we grew up the same. the only time i ever had beef was with one ignorant black dude at job corps. and he got his face fucked up. and all my boys (latino and black) were laffin. hahah word

  • BIGFE

    For all you dumb fucks go learn your history Puerto Ricans were called niggas too! We have African in us to! Were mixed with African, Spanish from spain “Europeans” and Tiano Indian. Ask all the great Latino baseball players what they were called in the fifties and sixties and I bet they would say “Nigga”.

  • Brasco

    Yo,
    I started this debate bout Fat Fuck joe and for the record I aint no rascist just quizzing bout this dudes use of the word nigga. “What it do”, do you smoke crack? Fat Joe says nigga and ooohhh lucky us gets to wear scarface t-shirts? Since when was wearing Scarface shit a racial slur? Thats acknowledging another culture retard just like Fat Fuck attempting to rap. If white people want to call each other crackers thats cool but I just stick to my own shit nigga!! Fuck fat Joe!!!

  • BIZZLE

    I SAY NIGGA 100 TIMES EVERY MORNING WHEN I WAKE UP…IT KEEPS MY TEETH WHITE.

  • Jonny High socks

    I feel Cuban. If u really look at Terror Squad who has put an album out since pun died???? I know Remmy Ma dropped but it wasn’t when she was still hot off that lean back shit. Fat Joe is the type of person that has to be the center of attention. I saw his latest vid and the Terror squad niggas ain’t even in it. What ever happened to Tony Sunshine???? Cuban links was a talented person but Joe was so scared he would get bigger than him he hated and shelfed his shit. Remy left and he put it in her contract she could not work with G unit or 50 cent. He even put their Government names in the paper work!! Thats lame as fucc.

  • lows

    ah so what fat joe ant say “n.gga in a racist way and you know it.fat joe grew up around blacks all his life and even where im from rican cats can say n.gga long as they saying in a rite way and it all ways been like dat cause we know ricans got 15 percent black in them. fat joe been down for a while even as a kid he went to old school krs1 shows and freestyled their. i dont know where yal from but in the east rican cats can say n.gga. and the rules ant change. and as for cuban link man i dont know what to even say about him to bad him and joe had that fall out.

  • Ryan

    Cuban Link was nice in the TS days, like the real TS with Pun and all them. Armageddon was nice too, what the fuck happens to these dudes, do they get too drugged out for their own good? I don’t blame Ross for not saying anything cause it’s not his beef and Cuban Link was stupid for bringing an outsider into it, he should stick to Fat Joe.

      Those two need to move on, this beef is the most played out beef in music history, Geddy has left TS, Because he said it himself on his website that he was idle aka lazy.
      Cuban used to be nice in TS, But he’s a waste of talent now.

  • enigma

  • http://THENUMBERTOO.WORDPRESS.COM THENUMBERTOO

    CUBAN LINK IS AN OPPORTUNIST, JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THE RAP GAME. PEOPLE IN MUSIC REALIZE THAT SUCCESS COMES FROM GREAT TIMING.

    LINK WAS AIGHT, OK IN THE LATE 90′S, BUT WAS A CANDLE AGAINST THE SUN WHEN IT CAME TO PUN AND EVEN DON CARTEGENA (JOE).

    I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THAT LINK WAS STILL RAPPIN. I WOULD HAVE QUIT RAPPIN SO LONG AGO.

    BUT ROSS IS COOL TOO, HE’S DEFINITELY A RAPPER, NOT A LYRICIST, BUT HE IS ONE OF THE HOTTEST RAPPERS OUT THERE, THOUGH.

    WE WENT TO THE RICK ROSS CONCERT WHERE I LIVE AND I HAVE TO SAY HE’S A COOL DUDE.

    PEOPLE THOUGHT HE WAS GONNA STAY FOR THE AFTER PARTY, BUT THIS DUDE DRINKS ROSE (ROSAY). SHIT IS LIKE A FEW HUNDRED A SHOT.

    LINK AIN’T GOT WHAT ROSS GOT AND MOST LIKELY WON’T AT THIS POINT IN RAP, WHICH IS DYIN LITTLE BY LITTLE AS TIME PASSES.

    Rick Ross is the truth, who cares about cuban link anyways, ross is the boss, while cuban link is nothing but a puppy.

    I aint got nothing bad to say bout rick ross but he is trying to say he aint gonna diss cuban cuz he aint nobody ,thats funny cuz he already through an indirect to cuban in a previous song. As for Khalid and him being “so hood” and gangsta ,tell me why cuban took ya ts chain in puerto rico in the rap convention and u was beggin for it. Pitbul is anouther one that was rollin wit joe and when joe and cuban got at it in a hotel in miami pitbull was acting if he had a gun and cuban smacked his ass with a chair..Come down to bx fat joe,you know what it is daddy,thats why ur fat ass moved to the m.i.a,you so hood ?? yea real hood niggas know the deal fat boy.
