In an interview with Bullett, Rick Ross opened up about the digital altercation that took place between his two artists Meek Mill and Wale last week:
“It’s a misunderstanding. As soon as the tweets went out, I spoke to both of them on the phone. Those two guys, they’re brothers. At the end of the day, they’re brothers and it’s time to turn up right now. It’s time for all of us to turn up and stay turned up, you know what I mean? But it’s all love between those two and everybody knows that.”
Last week, Meek Mill took to Twitter and called his label-mate, Wale, a “cornball” for not showing him support. Wale totally disagreed and denied the claims but there still seems to be tension between the two. Rozay doesn’t seem to think this will be a big problem though:
“They’re two real dudes, two successful dudes, and we all came from the same place. When I first brought them on the team, we all drove to our first video set together. It was just us three, and I felt we all was at the bottom at the time. You know, Wale was in his new situation, Meek in his first situation, and me in my very first situation being a CEO, being a bawse with my own label deal. So we all was on the same flow, and once we mention that, it’s all good.”
Ross added that rappers beefing was not something he condones,
“… we’re not here for that. What we’re here for is this, the culture! Fashion, the clothing, sneakers, sending that message – that’s what it’s about. You know certain things will occur; that’s just the nature of the game. There’s going to be dust kicked up at every arena, and you should all expect that. But at the same time, we’re focused on what we came for.”
Over the weekend, Meek Mill was sentenced to three to six months in jail for parole violation. This comes at a bad time, seeing as the Philly rapper recently announced a September release for his second album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, as well as a string of shows, that have now been canceled.
