DJ Khaled has finally stepped forward to address the Birdman and Rick Ross beef, as well as, his fallout with Cash Money Records.
Earlier this week, Rick Ross released the video for his Birdman diss track “Idols Become Rivals.” A lot of that track is about Birdman treatment of DJ Khaled and Ross claimed in an interview with Wendy Williams that Birdman owes Khaled a lot of money. Speaking with The Breakfast Club, DJ Khaled explains why he thinks that Ross went after Birdman and his current relationship with the Cash Money co-founder.
Khaled has some high praises for Rick Ross whom he called his brother in and outside of the music industry. “Me and him (Rick Ross) come from the bottom, the mud, to marble floors,” the “Grateful” rapper said. “When he’s shouting me out on that record, that’s what you call a real friend, family. [He] loves me and I love him back. Me and him are forever. Music or no music.”
Despite his falling out with Cash Money, DJ Khaled didn’t have anything bad to say about Birdman or Slim and he didn’t speak on the details of their falling out. “Birdman, that’s my friend,” DJ Khaled added. “I want to be clear. As far as anybody that has a situation, I pray and hope that people can talk to each other and work things out. Birdman? All that is, is at one point, I just moved on with We the Best. I got nothing but love for Birdman and Slim. They gave me an opportunity. I appreciate every opportunity that’s ever given to me.”
DJ Khaled says at the point he just want everyone to come together and work things out. That will be a far cry given how bad Lil Wayne and Birdman relationship is at the moment. Rick Ross seems to have no interest in being friends with the Cash Money head.
