Birdman Responds to Allegations on New Rick Ross Album

In 2013, Rick Ross and Birdman released a collaborative album they’d recorded in 2008, The H, an indicator of the bond between the two rap moguls. Since then the relationship has deteriorated. Around the release of his last album, 2015’s Black Market, Ross directly dissed Birdman on the “Breakfast Club” morning show. Now the Miami rapper has addressed the Cash Money founder in a similar fashion on “Idols Become Rivals,” a Black Metaphor-produced cut on his new LP, Rather You Than Me, that also features Chris Rock. Just hours after the album was released, Birdman responded.

“I don’t get caught up in hoe shit, man,” said Birdman to Billboard‘s Dan Rys. “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 fuck about: numbers, and puttin’ them up.”

On “Idols Become Rivals,” which Ross sent an Instagram caption message to Lil Wayne about last night, Ross details the many ways in which he’s come to be disappointed with Birdan, rapping lines like, “How the fuck, nigga, you touch half a billion, niggaa / And your team starvin’, nigaga?,” Since the fall of 2014, Lil Wayne has continuously complained about Birdman and Cash Money Records, his lifelong label, withholding funds. In 2015, he filed a $50 million lawsuit against Birdman that’s yet to be resolved.
