The year long feud between rappers Young Jeezy and Ricky Ross came to a surprising stop as Jeezy discussed the issues in a recent interview.
Aside from those few lines on “Death B4 Dishonor,” Jeezy said the issue spiraled thanks to a Web clip, which Ross perceived to be an additional jab at him. “I feel like the whole started thing from a clip on WorldStarHipHop, and my thing was, if I’m a boss and you a boss, let’s sit down and be bosses,” he said. “You take a clip that somebody edited and run with that? What part of the game is that? If you felt like that, hit me up, let’s chop it up, we bosses.” Finally, Jeezy said he didn’t take things seriously after bumping into Ross at the BET Hip Hop Awards, where the Miami rapper declined to exchange any words with him. “I felt like it was about selling records,” Jeezy said. “It’ not about you about me. We could’ve stepped in the corner and chopped it up. So right then and there, I knew it was about records, so I was cool with it.” (MTV)
DJ Khaled, who shares a common interest between both rappers, had this to say about the on going feud.
“Well first of all, I don’t condone problems,” Khaled explained in an interview with radio host Bootleg Kev. “That’s what I do. I represent that love and making great music. And them two guys, they don’t have no problems. So, you know, I guess this is an exclusive, they don’t have problems. I guess people in the streets, they try to make things into a problem. But that’s just life. That’s when you know you’re hot and that’s just part of the game, man. Being in the game and being successful, you have to deal with things like that. But you know, they ain’t got not problems. It’s all love. I don’t know what to tell you. It’s all love.” (Bootleg Kev)
