Rapper Rick Ross has recently reacted to Dee-1’s call for self-improvement, and it appears the response is less than pleased. During a recent appearance on Sway in the Morning, Dee-1 urged several fellow artists, including Meek Mill, Jim Jones, and Rick Ross, to reflect on the influence of their lyrical content.
Dee-1 expressed his concerns, saying, “Jim Jones, you could do better, brother,” he said. “I love you too much to not be honest with you. Rick Ross, you could do better, brother. Meek Mill, you could do better, brother! I love you too much not to be honest with you. Oh, you the face of prison reform? Or are you sitting here on your new song with Ross talking about getting somebody murked, and shot at the red light? Which one is it, bro?”
On November 4th, Rick Ross took to his Instagram Stories to address Dee-1’s remarks, and it’s evident that he was unimpressed. He began by referring to Dee-1 as “Lil’ man” and challenged him to match his own philanthropic efforts, emphasizing his long-standing commitment to supporting his community.
“Lil’ man, whoever you is, until you feed the kids where you’re from for 20 years straight, don’t question Rozay,” he began. “Wait until you buy 10,000 bikes. Don’t question Bawse. You heard me, lil’ man? Get that basket off your head, so you could think clear, lil’ man. Since you wanna go viral, I’m gonna show you how to go viral, lil’ man.”
Ross continued by advising Dee-1 to go viral by contributing to his local community, especially during Christmas. “Go viral feedin’ them kids in your hood. Go viral givin’ them bikes away. Go viral Christmas time! Don’t be sayin’, ‘Jim Jones.’ Jim Jones just gave away g*ddamn six figures worth of clothes in his hood. And you a n***a who talkin’. Lookin’ vegan, knowin’ you eatin’ more g*ddamn biggly-wiggly bacon than any other n***a out here. Shut up.”
