Rick Ross Takes a Stab at 50 Cent in ‘Mafia Music’
Miami-based rapper Rick Ross is looking to bring a little controversy to his name by choice this time around. Ross, who made headlines last year for being "ousted" as a corrections officer, goes hard at 50 Cent on his latest song 'Mafia Music.'
"I love to pay ya' bills, can't wait to pay ya' rent/Curtis Jackson baby mama, I ain't looking for a cent/Burn the house down," Ross says in reference to the fire that occurred last summer at the home owned by 50 that housed his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins. "You gotta' buy another. Don't forget the gas can, jealous, stupid motherf---er," he finishes. In response, 50 simply posted the song on his website.
The beef between the two reportedly stem from words that 50 had warning Ross to keep his distance from rapper Fat Joe during 50's feud with him. In a previous interview, Ross eluded to the controversial nature of the four minute song. "It's titled 'Mafia Music' and it's [going to] cause a lot of problems," he said. "Of course, I had to address a few things. I had to address a few people. Some people are [going to] be f---ed up. That's the best way I can put it."
Among others who seemed to have rubbed Ross the wrong way are T.I., Shawty Lo (which is ironic considering Tip and Lo have also had a verbal squabble), and Whitney Houston. 'Mafia Music' also finds Ross tooting his own successful horn while lyrically assaulting his enemies.
His latest album 'Deeper Than Rap' drops in April.
