Young Jeezy - Death Before Dishonor (Mixtape, 2010)
I already expressed my feelings that Jeezy was going in on Rawse on The Real Blowing Money Fast, but this is even harder to deny. I think that Rawse bigging up Jeezy’s brother was probably the last straw for a rapper who values his credibility above all. When Jeezy spit i know Big Meech; the REAL Big Meech on the Hustlin’ (remix) four years ago, I never expected that four years and countless scandals later Ross would be the one to bring the BMF head’s name back into attention, only to get subliminals thrown at him multiple times by his one-time homeboy. Is this the beginning of a beef between Officer Ricky and the Snowman? A part of me feels that Jeezy may just be jealous because of the fact that the Boss got his push over at Def Jam, and is getting the publicity he feels he rightfully deserves for TM 103. Who knows how true all of this is though; we’re just gonna have to wait to find out. Honestly, it wouldn’t be good for business either way; they’re both on the same label, and they make good music together. I’d rather them stay acquaintances then just randomly start beefing, especially considering the fact that neither of them are particularily good at beefs. They both came up the losers (in my opinion) of their biggest feuds in their career, Jeezy with Gucci and Ross with 50, at least on the musical aspect. Although they may’ve rebounded with stronger careers, neither of them have really released any monumental diss tracks in their career (and yes, I’m including Stay Strapped).
