Rick Ross stopped by “The Breakfast Club” for a revealing interview Monday morning, where he discussed his forthcoming album “Black Market,” as well as his continued house arrest situation and his weight loss, noting that he’d lost 80 pounds. He also threw a few shots at his rival, rapper 50 Cent.
“It really isn’t personal at all with me. I just feel homie a shallow, weak dude, and you gotta be shallow at this point,” said Rozay. “I’ll probably be in my emotions as well if my first album was titled Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and I filed bankruptcy. I guess his kidneys failed.”
Things got really interesting when he was asked for his take on the Drake vs. Meek Mill beef. “My position,” he observed, “I think this is what’s good for the culture. Coming up in the game, you will have skirmishes going for the No. 1 spot.”
He called Meek his “little brother” and Drake his “lil homie,” and compared them to “two lil homies in high school who fought over a pair of J’s.”
He explained that he’d just gotten off the phone with Meek, who he says is “making some of the most powerful music he ever made. That’s what I’m excited for, the next level.”
The hosts pressed him to acknowledge that Meek buckled under the pressure—Ross stood firm. “Ain’t nobody get bodied,” he said. “If you think that was bodied, you buggin’. That’s light work. We got more money we finna go get.”
He promises Meek’s upcoming music will silence his doubters. “If you think Meek Mill through, you trippin’.”
When asked about his infamous Drake >> Meek Mill tweet, he laughed it off. “That was a fake tweet,” he said. “I don’t even tweet like that. Dudes like me don’t use the greater than, less than [symbol].”
Plus, he introduced his fiancée Lira Galore, who sat in Rozay’s lap during the interview. “The key to being a boss is being able to see and know what you want,” he said.
