Rick Ross: I Talked To Both Wale and Meek Mill As Soon As The Twitter Beef Started
(AllHipHop News) Rick Ross is a label owner, but to him he's also a mentor, a friend and now a beef mediator. During a recent interview on the day Meek Mill and Wale engaged in a Twitter feud, Ross explains how he nipped that disagreement in the bud.
On July 8th, Meek Mill went on his personal Twitter account to accuse his Maybach Music Group artist Wale of hating Meek for years after he alleges Wale did not tweet out the Dreams Worth More Than Money release date. In an interview with Bullet Media hours after the Twitter back-and-forth began, Ross explained that he squashed it long before it grew into a bigger media frenzy:
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.
Back in 2010, Rick Ross announced he would be releasing a Spliff-TV directed Teflon Don: The Movie that summer, the first film to be released through his production company Maybach Films. After a trailer was released the movie never saw the light of day. In an April interview with DJ Skee, Ross explained that a new film from Maybach Films had its script completed and would be released "early next year." While Ross still contends that the movie will be released, the release date has changed:
We just finished writing our first film. We’re still in the final works. We haven’t released the title or nothing like that, but I want to begin production and filming before the year’s out, so maybe as early as next summer we can do something.
