Trick Daddy Tells Rick Ross to Apologize for Lupus Insults
The song, "Valley of Death," contains the lyrics "Caught a little case, buddy had a little cheddar/ Pled out to 15, poured his life in a letter/ Very first line he called Trick Daddy stupid/ Said he had AIDS telling people that it's Lupus/ Not the one just to jump to conclusions/ I'm getting money, small talk can be a nuisance."
"Millions of people are stricken with lupus," Trick said about his life-threatening condition. "I have stayed out of the bulls---, I will continue to stay out of it. Ross had been with Slip-N-Slide Records as long as I have been with Slip-N-Slide Records. He's known I've had lupus for 10 years. I was referred to my doctor by Ted Lucas who is the head of Slip-N-Slide Records. I would like to apologize to everyone suffering with Lupus. I would like to apologize for the insults."
Trick and Ross have a history of near-beef; many thought Trick was going after Ross in his 2006 song 'Breaker, Breaker,' and Ross dissed Trick in a video which recently surfaced. "That video is, like, three or four years old," Trick said. "It only just leaked. Somebody said, 'How you feel about Trick Daddy saying you're a prison guard?' I ain't never said that. He fell for that. Me and Ross had a conversation after that. I said, 'I'm not interested in fake beefing with you.' I'm not interested in beefing period -- I have never been. I'd rather focus on getting money and building my company Dunk Ryders."
Of course, it doesn't help that Trick just hired Ross' former manager, either. "E-Class -- he's working with me." Trick explained. "He's doing my management, we're getting money. This is something we should have done a long time ago."
