"I used to look up to you n---a," he pauses and reflects before later likening Birdman's business to the scandals of the Catholic Church: "Catholic record labels, n---as gettin' raped, boy / Birdman's a priest, moans in his synagogue." He even name-drops Baby's close cohort, Mannie Fresh: "Look you in your eyes before I say good night / And pray that Mannie Fresh will get to see the light."
"Damn Stunna, I love you n---a, I hate it came to see this," Rozay adds before alleging that Birdman stole artists' publishing money to cop his riches. He even takes it into Lil Wayne territory: "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?"
Ross wraps by offering candid thoughts, "I can't believe this s--t homie. I still love you, n---a. How the f--k, n---a, you touch half a billion, n---a and your team starving, n---a?"
He also suggests a situation between Khaled and Birdman. "What hurt me most is how you did my brother, Khaled. Khaled was loyal to you, n---a. The pain I seen in my brother's eyes, FaceTiming my n---a, he took that to the chin. That's why my n---a Khaled blessed."
In an interview with Billboard last month, Ross opened up about the track, saying, "I've got a record titled 'Idols Become Rivals' and it's basically me writing a letter to someone in the game that I looked up to damn near the most and I hate what things have come to."
Billboard has reached out to Birdman's rep for comment.
