The altercation backstage at the 2011 Video Music Awards between Rick Ross and Kreayshawn‘s manager Stretch now looks to have been the fulfillment of a promise made by Ross to XXL contributor Ben Detrick for the cover story of XXL‘s October 2011 issue, due out next week. KarenCivil provides an excerpt from the interview:
He even threatens Kreayshawn, the fledgling Bay Area rapper who called Ross “fake” in a recent freestyle. “I can’t wait to slap the s—t out of whoever carries her bags,” he sneers. “And I hope it’s her n—a. Dirty b—h. You better know the f—k you talking about. I’ll pay 50K to mess up your whole week.”
We suspect Ross still stands behind these (rather harsh) words, considering that Kreayshawn derisively referred to the VMA confrontation as “gang violence.” That said, if he’d been intending to ignore the Bay Area rapper going forward, XXL‘s lead time just made that a lot more difficult. Not to mention that this excerpt could take attention away from the other Ross news of the day—his featured appearance in the video for Monica‘s “Anything (To Find You).” Ross may be the Teflon Don, but this beef is sticking.
