Rick Ross takes aim at Birdman throughout this diss track attacking the Cash Money boss for shady business practices and how he's treated Lil Wayne over the years. The pair were once close, however by late 2015, Rozay was saying they no longer had a relationship because of Birdman's treatment of Wayne.
Speaking to Billboard magazine, Ross explained his motivations for the track. "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," he said.
Birdman and Lil Wayne have been involved in a very public beef for several years. The New Orleans rapper even released an album Free Weezy in which he expressed his wish to be released from his contract with Cash Money Records. At the time of the release of this song, Wayne was seeking over $50 million from Birdman in a lawsuit. Ross raps in the third verse:
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 explained the track in an Instagram 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."
Wayne reposted the image, writing, "dam big bro that msg hit me in the heart and put the motivation on automatik start. I needed that. 1 boss 2 another."
The song kicks off with a Chris Rock skit.
This samples the song "Agua De Dos Ríos" by Camilo Sesto, which Jay Z previously borrowed for the closing track of his The Dynasty: Roc La Familia album, "Where Have You Been."
