Rick Ross discusses Jeezy with Tim Westwood: “You played yourself…If you really have an issue put it on the table and handle it like a G.”

Rick Ross visited my UK colleague Tim Westwood, to talk about Teflon Don, Lil Wayne, his Birdman collabo album and more (*incidentally there are rumors that Ross will be migrating to Cash Money Records like DJ Khaled did)…
But towards the end, Tim read off some listener questions.
One person asked if Rawse had seen a recent video of Jeezy, walking in Miami, with a large crowd. Jeezy tells the cameraman, “Where your favorite rapper at? I don’t see that n—a, I’m in the streets, n—a. Look behind me….crip, n—a… I’m out here n—a, whatever n—as wanna do, I’m out here, n—a.”

Rick Ross’ response:
“I got to see the footage of him walking on South Beach, down Collins Ave…[Tim: it got a little crazy out there.] Yeah, he played himself. You gotta come cross the bridge to Carol City, Lil’ Haiti, that’s where you get your issues. I mean, Washington Ave? Give me a break…..what’s crazy about that, you can see on that same footage, when they asked about my name, they still don’t really have a direct answer. And that ain’t gangster at all. If you really have an issue put it on the table and handle it like a G. Walking down Collins Ave…You played yourself, you’ll get that took from you.”

Ross is also asked about walking out during last week’s Soul Train Awards taping because he was allegedly upset about losing “Best Hip Hop Song” to Eminem. Chrisette Michele, who was supposed to perform “Aston Martin Music” with Ross, reacted: “Who stands off at an award show because they don’t win?…apparently rapping is about venting, bashing, chauvinistic pigging, and EGO. Not cool.” But Ross said he walked out because of a lack of performance input.“I came the day before and they gave me a mic for rehearsals, and I had no input on the performance. We done worked a long time to get in this position not to just get thrown on stage. We had just did our thing at the BET Awards and played a part of that performance down to the pyros on stage. I just want to be part of the production….it wasn’t nothing personal to no one.“
