Back in March, just a day before Rick Ross’ ninth album Rather You Than Me was set to drop, the LP suffered an early leak and generated tons of chatter online–especially because of one track in particular: “Idols Become Rivals.”
On the track, Rozay candidly airs out his grievances towards former friend Birdman, namely for the Cash Money co-founder’s shady business practices. As Ross exclusively told REVOLT TV, “[I] watch[ed] him do bad business with some of the homies…one of my good dudes, who we all know, wasn’t supposed to suffer like that.”
Today, Rozay shares the music video for the controversial track and he continues to pull no punches. In the clip, he can be seen reflecting in places of worship and among luxury cars. But, the strongest digs come when he throws a Cash Money contract into a blazing fire; shows plaques proving both Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled’s inarguable successes; and gives producer Bangladesh some face time to publicly declare that he, too, has gone unpaid by (we’re assuming) Birdman. Watch it below.
Watch Rick Ross discuss “Idols Becomes Rivals” and his relationship with Birdman with REVOLT.
