This just in from the punk-ass moves bureau. Above, check out "Death B4 Dishonor," a new jam from Jeezy's upcoming 1,000 Grams mixtape. Over the beat from Rick Ross' "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)," a rather confident-sounding Jay Jenkins spits the following accusatory couplet:
"How you blowin' money fast, you don't know the crew/ Oh you part of the fam? Shit, I never knew."
The "crew" in question, of course, is the purportedly defunct Black Mafia Family, or BMF, with which Jeezy is alleged to have held strong ties. And the "you?" Well, the "you" is Rick Ross. Right? Right.
Except...now Jeezy says it's not?
After the leaked track hit the blogs on Monday and the supposed beef began to circulate, MTV contacted Jeezy for comment. In the resulting interview, he flatly denies that the shot was directed at Ross.
"It's not a dis," Jizzle told MTV News via phone from ATL. "First of all, I'm not gonna get nothing out of dissing that guy. That's one. What am I gonna get out of dissing him? I think sometimes people can read into things too deep. They trippin', man. They crazy out there. Basically, if homie takes that as a dis, he's insecure.
Erm. Can I get a "yeah, right?" Digging himself deeper and deeper into a conveniently Jeezy-sized hole, the rapper continued, commenting specifically on the "crew" lyric:
"That's for real," Jeezy explained. "That's for anybody. I got niggas in prison behind that shit. I feel that if you speaking on shit, you gotta at least know who you talking about. That's like niggas speaking on Cash Money: If he ain't never been a part of Cash Money, [then] I'mma speak it better if I'm a part of Cash Money. To me, [Black Mafia Family] was real. I know all the members. Who else would say a line like that but me? I'm one of the few people who can say that, so I said it."
Huh. Whatever his original intent, it would appear that Jeezy, who used to be good at this sort of thing, has forgotten how to own a dis. Right? That was a total dis, right? I'm not going crazy, am I?
Further complicating the matter is the fact that Ross and Jeezy are labelmates. And in another weird Jeezy/Ross development, the Snowman is now claiming that his "B.M.F. (The Real Blowin' Money Fast)" collab with the incarcerated Big Meech was written before Ross' version. Who what now? Is it just me, or is Jeezy emotionally devolving into a toddler before our very eyes? Someone get this man a blankie!
ooooohhhh, I'm so excited!! I can't wait to see them together!
come on man you know you got a bromance. you probably still rock that OutKast…
Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
