To quote Rick Ross’ beloved The Godfather, it’s never personal with Rozay—it’s strictly business. And recently, it appears that choking fellow rappers is Ross’ business, and business is fairly robust. The rapper spoke with a Miami hip-hop station of his recent altercation with Young Jeezy at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, explaining the context of the situation as such:
This is nothing personal to me. At the BET Awards it basically just boiled down to me running across Young Jeezy, he had five security guards in front of him, five police officers behind him and we crossed paths I said ‘what’s up?’ soon as he said ‘what’s up?’ I tried to choke him. His security guards hemmed me up; whoever the big black dude with the bumps on his face, he should give that dude something special for Christmas.
More interesting, though, is the Bawse’s take on whether or not the incident may recur:
I’m a hands on type dude. I’m better with my hands than I am at making music. So it’s not personal but if I see Young Jeezy again will I try to choke him? I don’t know, it’s an option.
Oh, and for the record, Ross says during the same interview that his canceled gigs in NC last week weren’t due to Gangster Disciple threats, but because “the promoter, he wasn’t really handlin’ his business.” Hey, when it comes to concert promotion, sometimes you handle your business, and sometimes you don’t. It’s an option.
