A lot happens in Hip-hop outside of our beloved Zimbabwean side, so this is the premier of a weekly digest I call Hip-hop This Week, where I share the shenanigans, triumps and other stories happening in other nations and give a little bit of my commentary.
On December 2, All Hip-hop published a story under the Headline, “Rick Ross Appears To Take Shots At Drake in Defence To Meek Mill On Color Money”
“My lil homie made a million on his girl’s tour
We back to back and down to whack a n*gga’s unborn
Miami n*ggas got them changing all the gun laws
So run Forrest got some shooters and they dying too
I got more money than that p*ssy that you’re signed to” – Rick Ross
This song is off his leaked album titled Black Market (which he of course leaked himself, it’s not a leak when you open the tap yourself but anyway…)
Well Drake being signed to Lil Wayne under young money also means, Weezy took a bullet in the last line quoted. The first line of course is in defense to Drake’s lines in his Back 2 back diss, “You love her, then you gotta give the world to her / Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour? / I know you gotta be a thug for her / This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more,” So well, he is trying here to flip the line and make Meek Mill look cool for making extra cake on his girls tour.
As if that’s not enough he by the end of the track throws shots at Diddy, “Double M, we balling way harder than Puff and them / It ain’t no love lost, I only see one boss,”
Basically I think the leak and all this name-dropping is orchestrated to give life to hype and curiosity of those who’ve not heard. I thought Puff and Ross were cool but I guess the industry aint really about friends.
50 Cent said in patiently waiting,
“If I get shot my phone will stop ringing again/ These industry n*****z aint friends they know how to pretend/”
Speaking of 50 Cent and Rick Ross ….. in other news 50 Cent, said he has no plans of paying back money owed to “Rick Ross Baby Mama”
Earlier this week, rap mogul 50 Cent and Hollywood producer Will Packer(Think Like A Man, Ride Along) announced that they beginning work on a new comedy series for FOX titled My Friend 50. A dope move which he took to instagram, “Now you know I ain’t bullshi**ing, I got WILL( Green Lit ) Packer on the Team. We walk in pitch, then walk out with bag full of money.”
However when a fan, commented to highlight that 50 Cent still owed $7 million to Lastonia Leviston, the mother of one of Rick Ross‘ children whose narrated sextape he leaked (leading to the lawsuit where he was asked to pay $7 million in damages)
50 replied with “oh I’m gonna owe that, lol.”
Can 50 Cent evade the law and really get away with this or he is just tryin’ to feel gangster on Instagram?
