Earlier this year, Rick Ross called out Birdman on his Rather You Than Me track
Idols Become Rivals for stealing from Lil Wayne. and pretty much anyone that’s ever worked for him. “I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne/His entire life, he gave you what there was to gain,” Ross raps. “I watched this whole debacle so I’m part to blame/Last request, can all producers please get paid?”
Ross, in a previous interview with Complex said the track wasn’t a diss but more of a wake up call. “A lot of people may have took that as a diss record, but for me I hope homie took something from that,” he explains. “I hope something good come from that. I hope that him and Wayne will be able to work out whatever it is.”
Birdman had spoken about the record in the past but not in detail. Now, yesterday (October 11), the Cash Money CEO took to Instagram Live to finally answer his critics.

And if you cross my line… you already know… I ain’t even gotta tell ya. You know what type of nigga I am.”
Shortly after Birdman’s rant surfaced, Rick Ross wasted no time in responding to his former mentor via Snapchat.
“Boy, you a year late, and five years late paying that man his money. Pay that man his money,” Ross said on Snapchat. “We know you ain’t right. Stop with the jokes, nigga. Bring that shit. Bring it.”
“That’s what’s so beautiful about life,” he continued. “It ain’t no ceilings. You go far as you want to go. Have no fear, all that talking shit, nuh uh, all that shit don’t work round here, baby. We’ll put you in check, nigga, We’ll put you somewhere else […] Shut up and pay niggas.”
Birdman and Lil Wayne currently have an ongoing financial dispute, with the latter claiming Birdman, real name “Bryan Williams” owes him profits made on Drake and Nicki Minaj along with an $8 million advance for the long-awaited “Carter V.”
