Rick Ross Says He's Open To Squashing Beef With Birdman

(AllHipHop News) MMG boss Rick Ross inserted himself into the longstanding conflict between Young Money captain Lil Wayne and Cash Money head Birdman. Rozay's "Idols Become Rivals" took direct aim at the executive also known as Bryan "Baby/Stunna" Williams.
However, the Rather You Than Me track ended with an outro where Ross says, "I still love you, n*gga." Now that Wayne and Birdman appear to be on better terms since settling a $51 million music revenue lawsuit last year, can Rick Ross get over any issues with Stunna as well?
"Just being honest with yourself or with myself, if Lil Wayne could move forward with his differences with the homie, why should I still have a difference with him? You know, he never owed me nothing," Ross expressed during a conversation with N.O.R.E. at the Miami Dade College - Wolfson Campus convention center.
The Hurricanes memoir author continued, "I just was speaking as a big homie from my perspective: 'Damn, I see my little dawg suffering, something ain't right here. Let me say something about it.' That's what it basically came down to. And like I said, they moved forward. Rozay don't got no issue."
Besides unmasking Wayne's troubles with Baby, "Idols Become Rivals" was also a subtle audio exposé of Cash Money's alleged misconduct involving DJ Khaled. Rick Ross expounded on Khaled's fallout with CMB.
"The passion for me even doing that really came from me watching Khaled's situation. Y'all know Khaled's an honorable dude and of course, he left with nothing but class, with nothing to say, but me knowing what was going on, that's where that really came from," said Ross.
He added, "Like damn, this was really going on. And I said I'd never speak on that or give details, from my homie Khaled, but I just felt it wasn't right."
In 2019, original Cash Money Records acts Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Juvenile reunited for the "Ride Dat" single. In addition, Rick Ross was able to reconnect with Wayne's YMCMB protégé Drake for "Money in the Grave" and "Gold Roses" this year.
