Two songs in Rick Ross' newest album, 'Apple of My Eye' and 'Friends Become Rivals', are seemingly aimed at Nicki Minaj and Birdman.
Rick Ross has recently released his album and it already made headlines, especially for the two tracks which seem to diss Nicki Minaj and Birdman. In a track titled "Apple of My Eye", Rick raps about Nicki and Meek Mill's past relationship. "I told Meek I wouldn't trust Nicki/ Instead of beefing with your dog you just give him some distance," he raps.
Prior to this, Meek posted a cryptic message on his Instagram account along with his photo with Rick. "Rozay been told me don't trust you," Meek wrote in the caption, also hinting at the release date of Rick's album, "Rather You Than Me".
Cash Money Records co-founder, Birdman, also gets explicitly dissed by the 41-year-old rapper. In a song "Idols Become Rivals", Rick is taking Lil Wayne's side in Lil Wayne-Birdman feud. "I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne/ His entire life, he gave you what there was to gain/ I watched this whole debacle so I'm part to blame/ Last request, can all producers please get paid," Rick raps in the third verse.
Rick and Lil Wayne used to be frequent collaborators in Cash Money Records, but in 2015 Wayne sued Birdman for $51 million over unpaid fees related to his unreleased album.
Rick took to his Instagram account to show his appreciation to Lil Wayne. He wrote in the caption, "The Level of respect and Love that I have for WAYNE makes it hard to sit back and not speak on the situation. The streets need you. Being a Boss means having the courage to say the things everybody thinking but scared to say. I can't wait for you to hear it. Midnight."
In response to the meaningful message, Lil Wayne tweeted along with the screen shoot of Rick's Instagram post, "damn big bro that msg hit me in the heart and put the motivation on automatik start. I needed that. 1 boss 2 another."
