Rick Ross is known to fire back when someone talks smack about his business. Recently, Rick took a moment to address his perceived rift with Meek Mill
Back in October, Meek Mill took to Twitter to voice his annoyance at Atlantic Records and Maybach Music Group claiming that he hadn’t been paid what he’s owed. But MMG head Rick Ross believes Meek’s comments were not directed at him.
In an interaction with The Morning Hustle, Rick took the opportunity to discuss his perceived rift with Meek. He shifted the blame towards Atlantic Records claiming,
“I’ma be honest, when Meek taking a jab at anybody, the only way I can assume is he’s doing that at Atlantic Records,” he said. “All we ever did was get paper and it’s real easy to say a n-gga name. Ain’t nothing to — you feel me? I know what it is when me and Meek always got money. He a boss now. We done been down 10 years. Is he signed to Maybach Music? Yes, he is. But he’s also a boss and real bosses give other bosses opportunities to become bigger bosses. Go, man. Go buy the biggest shit in Dubai, man. Let’s go be billionaires. And if I’m only gonna get $7 billion and you get $20 billion, God is great! That’s all it is. Is it any pressure? It ain’t no pressure. And always remember, it’s real easy to make it clear when it’s pressure.”
Rick was initially hesitant to address Meek’s since deleted Twitter rant. But Last month he told Complex,
“I don’t respond, that’s how. That’s all we’ve ever did was win and I’ve never responded to anything, because I’m the boss, and the boss ain’t got to respond. You keep winning.”
The Richer Than I Ever Been artist eventually gave in and explained his relationship with Meek. In a interview with TIDAL’s Elliot Wilson, Rick claimed he gave Meek the “space to grow.” He added that he brought Meek to the city when he was a “youngster” and always made sure the Kentucky rapper gets his due.
Rick is currently busy doing press rounds for his latest album, Richer Than I Ever Been. According to HITS Daily Double, his early projections don’t seem impressive.
The projections state the album is expected to sell roughly 30,000 album-equivalent units in it’s opening week which equates to a #20 spot on Billboard 200 making it the lowest-selling and lowest-charting album in Ross’ career.
