Uncle Luke, one of Hip Hop’s most sexually explicit rapper, had some words of advice for the Ricky Rozay. We all know that Rick Ross has been catching all kinds of drama from the Gangster Disciples due to using theirÂ paraphernalia. Rick Ross took their threats lightly until a tragic incident took place were he got caught up in an alleged drive-by shooting in Ft. Lauderdale, FL where he crashed his Rolls Royce. Uncle Luke put out a letter that advised the following for Rozay.Â
Dear Rick Ross:
As someone who survived several rap beefs, Iâm going to give you some advice. You need to seriously address the threats and attempts on your life. You have worked hard to become a big name in hip-hop. Youâve paid your dues and youâve grown lyrically since the release of your debut album, Port of Miami, in 2006. Youâve arrived, buddy.
But all this gangster bullshit is jeopardizing your career. No club or arena is going to risk people getting shot. You can forget about doing any tours or CD signings. And if you canât make money, watch how fast Warner Bros. Records turns on you. I know from experience how venues and the music industry would like to black ball you.
You have the Gangster Disciples breathing down your neck because youâve named-dropped Larry Hoover, the gangâs founder, in your music. Unlike the record and book publishing industries, these bad dudes donât understand the concept of public domain. They see you getting rich forever by rapping about their leader, and they donât like it. Thatâs why theyâre on YouTube talking about how you need to go see them and cut a check.
Itâs a shame you canât enjoy life without spending part of your earnings on heavy security or risking your freedom by purchasing an arsenal. Remember, thatâs what landed T.I. and Lil Wayne in prison. You donât want that to happen to you. However, those are the consequences of rapping about being something youâre not.
Hip-hop has a rich history of college guys who never committed a crime rapping about moving kilos of cocaine and taking out snitches. Every gangster rapper takes on the role of a real hood legend to build up street cred. But I donât want you to fall into the trap of believing you are really a gangster.
Trust me, you donât want to go out like Biggie Smalls or Tupac. Itâs time you squash your beefs.
Rick Ross’s street credibility has been questionable since it was exposed that he was a correctional officer, but there have been dudes that have been connected to the streets that have correctional officers. I think that it’s clear that when you want to claim that you are this ruthless, notorious drug dealer this kind of drama comes with the territory. Hopefully it doesn’t end up in a Tupac and Notorious BIG tragedy.Â
