Young Jeezy has issued a statement via MTV, saying that his version of Rick Ross’ hit is not a diss towards the Teflon Don. Jeezy was very candid when he said:
“It’s not a dis. First of all, I’m not gonna get nothing out of dissing that guy. That’s one. What am I gonna get out of dissing him? I think sometimes people can read into things too deep. They trippin’, man. They crazy out there. Basically, if homie takes that as a dis, he’s insecure, and anybody else out there who does, they are insecure. When it comes to that [Black Mafia Family] situation, I’m gonna talk about it a little flyer anyway,” Young added. “I happen to know that situation very well. But basically [‘Death B4 Dishonor’], it’s off a mixtape that’s coming out. My mixtape is coming out on Thursday, it’s called 1,000 Grams. I took all the records I liked and flipped them my way. It’s a gang of records on there like that. It’s like 12 joints, all records that I heard in the club that I like and flipped them my way.”
Someone from Ross’ camp gave a response on twitter, bashing Young Jeezy claiming that “he sneak dissing”, but his outburst is irrelevant at this point. Ross himself issued a statement before this, stating he didnt know “what his thought process was behind it”. Clearly this is pure ol hype that is trying to drive a rift between to great stars. Hopefully they move past this.
