Rick Ross claps at Birdman with ‘Idols Become Rivals’.
A new single off Â Rick Ross‘ forthcoming album Rather You Than Me leaked yesterdayÂ (March 16th). ‘Idols Become Rivals‘ takes aim at Birdman and offers a dark look at what happens when heroes fall from grace.
“I grew up on that Cash Money/â€Bling Blingâ€ was well-known to flash money,â€ Ross raps. â€œI used to see you nâ€”â€“ on my TV screen / and wonder what was life like, was it all a dream / And then I met you out on Live Nation dates / Came to the realization that your watch was fake / Damn, you nearly broke my heart / I thought you nâ€”â€“ really owned them cars.”
The song grows increasingly tense as Ross illustrates all the ways his idol has failed him. â€œDamn Stunna. I still love you, nâ€”-,â€ he says at the halfway mark and again towards the end. “Hate that it came to this.” Take a listen below and let us know what you think.
