In a move a lot of Miami has been waiting for Rick Ross speaks out in support of Trayvon Martin.
The Boss had a personal conversation with the father of the slain teenager today and expressed his support for the cause.
Rozay tweeted to his followers:
Just spoke to father of
#TrayvonMartin in Full support of The Movement.
Much respect goes out to Rick Ross for not trying to gain publicity off of his support but for being a real dude from Florida and letting everyone know where he stands on the matter.
Together we can end racism. Seriously.
Proving time and again he is the Teflon Don must get pretty tiring for Maybach Musics Rick Ross.
Though he did it again, as he was sued by scum of the earth Freeway Ricky Ross for copyright infringement. But for the 2nd time a Judge dismissed the case and our Rick Ross walked away victorious.
In a statement Freeway complained a little bit and let everyone know he was upset…but let’s not forget Freeway Ricky Ross destroyed families, murdered people, made kids grow up without moms and dads because he wanted to push drugs into his own community and when push came to shove he snitched on everyone he ever knew…No love Freeway.
God Forgives, I Don’t may be the name of Rick Ross’ upcoming LP, but the Bawse isn’t as coldhearted as his album title may suggest. When it comes to former Maybach Music affiliate Pill, Rozay wishes the Atlanta MC all the best.
“I’m a real dude and I’m a real boss and once you rep the MMG flag, I’ll never step on your feet; I’mma give you a pass anyway,” Ross told MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway of Pill while at French Montana’s “Shot Caller” remix video shoot in Miami on Sunday.
In December, P-I-Double L took to Twitter to vent about his label situation with Warner Music Group, blaming WMG for his lack of radio and television support. Because of his prominent appearance on Maybach Music’s Self Made Vol. 1 compilation, many believed that Pill was signed to Ross’ label, but in an exclusive interview with MTV News in January, Pill revealed that he was never technically signed to Rozay and that his deal went strictly through MMG’s parent company, Warner.
“Pill’s situation was a special situation because he was already signed to Warner before I did my label deal at Warner. So when I did do my deal, it was a business opportunity that was presented where Pill could run with the team for a year,” Ross confirmed. “I took that opportunity. That year ran its course and it was pretty much up to Warner what decisions they wanted to make with Pill as an artist after that point. I think they made it.”
Pill told MTV News in January that he was working on getting a release from Warner and made it clear that he had no problems with anyone in MMG personally — though he did say that he and Ross didn’t speak very often. “I ain’t got nothing against none of them, nobody. It’s just the situation don’t work,” Pill said matter-of-factly. “It’s cool with us, I don’t got nothing against Ross either. It’s just I don’t talk to him.”
Some believed that Pill’s outspokenness would anger the Boss, but Rozay didn’t take any of it to heart. “He made sure he reached out to me and called me and clarified,” Ross said. “He expressed that in no way was he disrespecting the team or the brand, because it’s a great opportunity and a great look.”
As far as why the “Trap Goin’ Ham” rapper’s situation didn’t work out, Ross thought the young MC just needed a hit record and a little luck to build his momentum. He used the success of MMG’s Meek Mill and Wale to exemplify his point. “Certain things happen for certain people at certain times and none of us could really predict that,” he explained. “I couldn’t predict that Meek Mill would bring ‘Ima Boss’ to me or we couldn’t predict that Wale would bring ‘That Way.’ ”
Even though Pill and WMG are now going their separate ways, Ross is looking forward to seeing his former Maybach affiliate rack up a win. “Hopefully, in the future he’ll bring him a hit record, and get him some paper and do his thing,” he said. “I wish him much success.”
Rapper Rick Ross is involved in a paternity dispute with a Georgia woman, who claims he fathered her son.

But Rick Ross has already filed a response to Childers’ paternity claims and denies he’s the father of her child.
The rapper is seeking a DNA test to prove that he is not the father.
Legal documents filed on behalf of the rapper claim that he never even slept with the woman.
Representatives for Rick Ross were not available as of press time.
Just when Jeezy comes out saying there is no beef between him and Rick Ross. He records a track with Miami native Trick Daddy titled “This one’s for you” aimed directly at Rick Ross…these rap dudes are just sad excuses of what used to be real dudes from the street. Shits sad man.
Jeezy get at us man, explain the thought process here. Ross gave you a shout out on Deeper than Rap…why the fuckin hate? For record sales? We ain’t buyin your shit now, this beef hurt you. Give it up.
Let me preface this by saying for Jeezy to continue to stress that Death B4 Dishonor wasn’t a diss record is wack. Just stand up and say what it was, if you real than be real about it. Stop actin like you didn’t just do that everytime we ask you about it. And don’t try and clown on Ross when you walkin through Miami talkin “Where your favorite rapper at?” and then flashin a gun in your waist and he’s takin that shit personally. Ross owns Miami, Jeezy that shit wasn’t Boss at all it was disrespectful ho shit.
On the other hand I agree with Jeezy when he says Ross should’ve talked to him about it at the BET awards. Ross ignoring him was not Boss like at all. Jeezy and Ross had some crazy tracks together in the past and I look forward to seeing them work together in the future, so long as the dissing can come to a halt. With that said, lets get to Jeezy:
Young Jeezy’s fourth solo album, TM: 103 Hustlerz Ambition, will finally arrive sometime around the end of the year after waiting over 3 years for a release date from Def Jam, and on Wednesday (November 30), the Snowman joined Sway on “RapFix Live” to talk about the LP.
During their discussion, Jeezy opened up about his relationship and rumored beefwith Rick Ross, explaining where things stand at this point.
The contention between the two began in August 2010, when Jeezy released a freestyle over the instrumental to Rick Ross’ hit “B.M.F.” titled “Death B4 Dishonor.” The song bore a few lines that were perceived as a dis, specifically, “How you blowin’ money fast/ You don’t know the crew/ Oh, you part of the fam?/ Sh–, I never knew.” Later that year, Jeezy told MTV News that the song had been recorded even before Ross released “B.M.F.,” but the rumors and slight jabs in the media have continued ever since.
“With rap, it’s a funny thing. You can say things, and people can take ’em the way they wanna take ’em,” Jeezy said, addressing “Death B4 Dishonor.” “But in my mind, in my heart, I just killed the verse. If I killed the verse and you took it personally, then that’s on you.”
The Atlanta rapper said he isn’t dwelling on any issues with Ross, despite things that have happened in the past. “I hear things; the streets talk. I’m hearing he reaching out to [Big] Meech and trying to get him to speak bad — that’s my brother,” Jeezy said of the Black Mafia Family drug dealer. “When you’re trying to bring the streets into rap to prove a point, then you already lost. You separate the two, and that ain’t to be played with. You’ve got people that lost their lives and people that are doing real time. If we gon’ make music, let’s just make music.”
Aside from those few lines on “Death B4 Dishonor,” Jeezy said the issue spiraled thanks to a Web clip, which Ross perceived to be an additional jab at him. “I feel like the whole started thing from a clip on WorldStar, and my thing was, if I’m a boss and you a boss, let’s sit down and be bosses,” he said. “You take a clip that somebody edited and run with that? What part of the game is that? If you felt like that, hit me up, let’s chop it up, we bosses.”
Finally, Jeezy said he didn’t take things seriously after bumping into Ross at the BET Hip Hop Awards, where the Miami rapper declined to exchange any words with him. “I felt like it was about selling records,” Jeezy said. “It’ not about you about me. We could’ve stepped in the corner and chopped it up. So right then and there, I knew it was about records, so I was cool with it.”
A number of artists, including his rival 50 Cent, weighed in on the rapper’s condition.
Drake tweeted a succint message reading, “Prayers for Rozay.”
Texas rap vet Bun B also called for calm and prayers for the Maybach Music Group boss. “Pray for my brother @rickyrozay It might not be serious at all, but let’s pray for him anyway,” tweeted the Underground King.
Rapper Q-Tip tweeted: “Prayers up 4 @rickyrozay homie rest up. Your health is bigger than bizness.”
Wu-Tang rapper Raekwon offered kind words for Rick Ross, as well.
“Dam, hope my dude rozay is good!” Raekwon tweeted.
Diamond tweeted: “Hope Rick Ross is Doing Well.. #blessings.”
Chad Ochocinco tweeted: “Thoughts n prayers out to
@rickyrozay Praying for a speedy recovery.”
Diddy said “Prayin for my brother Rick Ross”
And while 50 Cent stopped short of praying for Ross, he offered his enemy some advice.
“He gotta take care his self,” 50 tweeted. “No [I don’t have any prayers] but I don’t wish DEATH on him my grand father had a seizure.”
cred: AHH / sohh
Prayers for my nigga Rozay!!!
