The title of Rick Ross’s new album is very compelling. God Forgives, I Don’t. The statement in itself makes you never want to get on Rick’s bad side. Nevertheless, forgiveness really helps that one that has been done wrong. It rarely tortures the person that did wrong in the first place. This means forgiveness is true liberation.
With that, it is high time that Rick Ross make a few exceptions to his mantra and bury the hatchet.
1) Officer Ricky and Wicklow Entertainment
There is no way that Rick Ross has not seen Officer Ricky on YouTube. If he hasn’t, he should. A parody is one of the highest forms of comedic flattery. It’s right below the comedic roast. Ask Flavor Flav about that distinction. While he’s never acknowledged them, he’s got to forgive them for clowning, because their videos are gut-busting funny. With that, the first instinct would be to get upset. But, after it fades…forgive. Ross was never a la policia anyway!
Officer Ricky – “Donuts”
This is too funny. Undeniable.
2) 50 Cent
I know, unthinkable. How could Rick Ross possibly forgive his most formidable opponent? All the things 50 Cent did with Rick’s baby moms, his kids, and reputation? Boxers can fight for 12 rounds and hug even after all the pre-fight trash talk. Ross should let it go. Be friends with 50 Cent. Give him a ginormous hug. He’s still a monster in the game of entertainment and can help Rozay in a number of ways. If Nas and Jay can re-kill an already dead beef, so can these current titans. (On the low, surviving the 50 Cent beef made Ross way stronger.)
3) Young Jeezy
I’ll never forget when Rick Ross and Young Jeezy’s beef was at its height. AllHipHop was “chillin” with Ross in a backstreet parking lot in ATL. It was tense (Steve Raze as my witness). You could cut the tension with a set of clippers. Jeezy appeared to be on a rampage, and Ross was steadily rising. But, lo and behold, we discovered these awesome Southern rappers could co-exist and maintain their relevance. Now, Rick Ross recently suggested he’d be willing to record a joint album with Jeezy. “As far as I’m concerned, bring that money bag, let’s shake the world up, that’s what Double M-G is about,” Ross proclaimed! I think he should have said, “I’d like to be BFFs with Young Jeezy.” This would have tripled the impact of the inference that he was willing to forgive Jeezy and all those Crips.
This girl was on a roll, and then she went and dissed the Don. That Don is ROZZZZZZZZAAAAAY! Remember? A year or so ago, KreayKreay was that White girl mobbing the streets of Oaktown. After a beef with Rozay, she’s the rappin’ Cindy Lauper, all respect due of course.
Anyway, I think Rozay should bless her with a verse. At least say, “I like that b*tch, Kreayshawn. I’d smash that,” to the media so she can get people to forget her girl V-Nasty’s penchant for the N-word. Nevertheless, until Rick approves her, Kreay can’t really go back to the ‘hood if Ross is in the same ‘hood, and there’s no security to stop the raging BAWSE! Kreayshawn probably wishes she never uttered the rhyme, “You trying to play me like a boss/ But you faker than Rick Ross, b*tch.”
5) Freeway Ricky Ross
These two men have been in a legal beef for quite sometime. First of all, there needs to be some financial forgiveness, because Freeway Ricky Ross was ordered to pay $500,000 in legal fees to the rapper Rick Ross. Now, we know that that is not going to happen – let’s get to the next one. Freeway Rick is an OG in the drug trade game in a way that eclipses every single rapper that ever sold anything. Rick Ross holds the number one album, God Forgives, I Don’t, and is at the tippy top of the rap game in a way that few rappers can manage these days. A double co-sign would be epic. This is the rare instance where there needs to be mutual forgiveness. Rozay can let it slide now that the OG tried to infringe on his rap livelihood, and Freeway Rick can let it slide that his name got hijacked and refurbished when he was in jail. Let bygones be bygones.
