Default Rick Ross Challenges Eminem, Says He Defeated 50 Cent

Rapper Rick Ross recently released a trailer for a new video, "Cold Blood," from his new album, Deeper Than Rap, which hits stores today, April 21st. MTV.com reports that in the trailer, Ross is seen wearing a suit in a church and the words "R.I.P. Curtis Jackson" appear on the screen. During an interview with WQHT-FM's DJ Envy, Ross explained that 50 Cent was boring him and that he might have to take on Eminem for some real competition
The rapper also shared that to him, Eminem has lost some of his swag and that he wasn't exactly excited about the Detroit rapper's new video, "We Made You." Ross said, "His swag ain't the same, though. We not dissing. We'll never dis. The video was funny. This time I'm not gonna be critical because I'm a fan. But I see the swag ain't the same."

He was right in saying Eminem has lost his old steez. His new stuff is pretty uninspiring

So Rick Ross lost the beef with 50 because he had a job? Suburban "hip hop" fans are so silly.

Eminem never had Swag. He's a white boy who can rhyme nice, but his productional work sucks (Carry the Cross was awful), and his gimmick is growing old. Stop picking on blonde pop stars and start focusing on some other stuff. We know it by now.

So it sold well i take it? I'm trying to figure out if he can go platinum, gold etc

I downloaded the album and same day deleted. I did like some beats tho. Mafia Music is still the best song imo. I just like the whole song. Even his lyrics.

Pouring moet in her hair/Excuse me her weave/The bluest of weed/Coke in the car smellin like blue cheese/

Not sure why i like that but i do. Eh

It sold over 150K it's first week. Port of Miami and Trilla sold about the same amount. 198K and 187K respectively. He has always been a slow and steady seller anyway. The 50 beef did little to help or harm his sales because 50 has little cache with Ross' target demo.

I cant believe your serious. What about this gimmick??
(Rabbit Run Lyrics)
Some days I just wanna up and call it quits,
I feel like I�m surrounded by a wall of bricks,
Everytime I go to get up I just fall in piss,
My life�s like one great big ball of ****,
If I could just put it all in all I spit,
Instead I always try to swallow it,
Instead of staring at this wall and ****,
While I sit writers block sick of all this ****,
Cant call it ****, all I know is I�m about to hit the wall,
If I have to see another one of mom�s alchaholic fits,
This is it, last straw, thats all, thats it,
I ain�t dealing with another ****ing politic,
I�m like a stewin bubble in him, till it filters up,
I�m about to kill it, I can feel it building up,
Blow this building up, I�ve been sealed enough,
My cup run it over I�ve been filled up,
But then explosion bust and spills my guts,
You think all I do is stand here and feel my nuts,
But I�m a show you what, you gonna feel my rush,
You don�t feel it then it must be too real to touch,
Feel to touch, I�m about to tear **** up,
Goosebumps, yeah I�m make your hair sit up,
Yeah sit up, I�m a tell you who I be,
I�m make you hate me cause you ain�t me,
You aint, it ain�t to late to finally see,
What you close minded ****s were too blind to see,
Whoever find me, is gonna get a finders fee,
Out this world and ain�t no one out there mind as me,
You need peace of mind, well here�s a piece of mine,
All I need�s a line but sometimes,
I don�t always find the words to rhyme,
To express how I�m really feeling at that time,
Yeah sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, just sometimes,
Its always me, how dark can these hallways be,
The clock stikes midnight, 1, 2, then half past 3,
This half ass rhyme with this half ass piece of paper, (tear)
I�m desperate at my desk if I could just get the rest,
Of this **** off my chest, again, stuck in this slum,
Cant think of nothing, **** I�m stumped,
But wait here comes something,
Nope, it�s not good enough, scribbel it out, new pad,
Krinkel it up and throw that **** out,
I�m fisseling now thought I had figured it out,
Ball�s in my court but I�m scared to dribbel it out,
But I�m afraid, why am I afaid, why am I a slave to this trade,
Sign that I�ll spit to the grave, real enough to rawl you up,
What me to flip it I can rip it any style you want,
I�m a switch, yeah a *****, jimmy smith ain�t a quitter,
I�m a sit here till I get enough,
For me to finally hit a ****ing boiling point,
Put some oil in your joints,
Flip the coin ***** come get destroyed,
An mc�s worst dream I make them tense since they hate me,
See me and shake like a shangeling fence,
By the looks of them you would swear yours was comming,
By the scream of them you would swear I�m sawing something,
By the way they running you would swear the law was coming,
Its now or never tonight is all or nothing,
Momma, jimmy keep leaving on us, he said he�d be back,
He pinky promised, I don�t think he�s honest,
I be back baby I just got to beat this clock,
**** this clock, I�m make them eat this watch,
Dont believe me watch, I�m a win this race,
And I�m a come back and rub my **** in your face,
***** I found my neck, you gonna hear my voice,
Till you sick of it you ain�t gonna have a choice,
If I gotta scream till I have half a lung,
If I have half a chance I grab it, rabbit run...
