Rick Ross Defends Meek Mill and Throws Shots at Drake on ‘Color Money’
Rick Ross is sticking up for his Maybach Music Group artist Meek Mill. In his latest single, "Color Money," the Miami rapper takes a few shots at Drake using references from the Toronto rhymer's diss song "Back to Back."
"Color money got your b---- out on a world tour / My lil homie made a million on his girl’s tour / We back to back and down to whack a n----- unborn," he raps. "Miami n----- got them changing all the gun laws / So run Forrest got some shooters and they dying too / I got more money than that p---- that you’re signed to."
It seems Rozay is taking it upon himself to stand up for the Philly rhymer now. Although it's unclear whether he was taking a shot at Lil Wayne or Birdman in the last line -- as fans have noted.
Either way, hip-hop heads are torn on whether or not the song is dope. One fan called the track "tight," while another said it was a "[3 out of 10]," adding that "the jab at drake was ok at best."
All of this talk stems from Meek's Twitter rant this past summer accusing Drake of using a ghostwriter. Drizzy responded with two diss songs, "Charged Up" and "Back to Back." In the latter, he asked Meek's "Is that a world tour or your girl's tour?" It's a line that's been quoted repeatedly despite the "House Party" rapper's comeback diss song, "Wanna Know."
"Color Money" is slated to appear on Ross' forthcoming album, Black Market. The effort is set to drop on Friday (Dec. 4).
