Rick Ross put his feelings about Cash Money CEO Birdman out in the open earlier this week when he dropped the official video for “Idols Become Rivals.” The track deals with Birdman robbing his own artists and producers, as well as his relationship with DJ Khaled. Former Hot Boy member, Turk, was also mentioned on the record but says he wish Ross wouldn’t have mentioned him at all.
“As far as speaking out for another man,” Turk told TMZ, “he can’t speak up for me.” Turk says he has respect for both Rick Ross and Birdman, and that he and Birdman have squashed their beef. “Me and Birdman, we dealt with our situation, and we handled it like men.” The situation Turk is referring to is the lawsuit he filed back in 2015 looking for a reported $1.3 million he said was owed in royalties. Turk says it’s all good now, though, and doesn’t think Rick Ross shouldn’t have used his name in the song “without hollering at me.”
Turk admits to liking “Idols Become Rivals” and hopes everyone will “come together” and put their differences aside.
