Birdman Responds To Rick Ross' Diss Song "Idols Become Rivals"!
Rick Ross released his ninth studio album, Rather You Than Me, last week and put Birdman on blast in his song "Idols Become Rivals."

In the track, Ross called Birdman out for his shady business dealings. However, Birdman made it clear he is not fazed by the diss track.

Birdman sat down with Billboard to discuss Ross' song and he appears to be unbothered. 

Birdman stated, "I don’t get caught up in [weak stuff], man. I just keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing. I don’t get caught up in that, I don’t play like that. I’m a man and I stand my ground and I do my thing. Numbers don’t lie, and that’s all I give a [damn] about: numbers, and puttin’ them up.”

Rick had taken aim at Birdman, the CEO of Cash Money Records. Ross called Birdman out for not paying artists the full amount of royalities that are owed. 
Ross rapped in the "Idols Become Rivals" track, "Catholic record labels, n---as gettin' raped, boy /Birdman's a priest, moans in his synagogue /Publishing is his sin, repent, forgive me, Lord. You stole them boys' pub and bought a foreclosure," he raps at another, referring to the Hot Boys; "You would give us self-esteem and motivate our drive / But was in our pockets by the time we count to five."

Towards the end of the song, Ross references lawsuits with Lil Wayne and several Cash Money producers. He raps, "I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne/ His entire life, he gave you what there was to gain / I watched this whole debacle, so I'm part to blame/ Last request, can all producers please get paid?"
Ross recently revealed his decision to do the diss track. He stated, “It’s one of those things that when you’re a student and you admire someone from a distance, then you get the opportunity to work with them and you’re working along with them and then you begin to see things you don’t respect or didn’t expect to see."

He added, “And once you see it almost become the source to that downfall, it’s really unfortunate. And when you see other solid dudes suffering at the same time that’s what make it even worse, that’s what made me wanna put it on wax.”
