Dear Rick Ross:

As someone who survived several rap beefs, I'm 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. You've paid your dues and you've grown lyrically since the release of your debut album, Port of Miami, in 2006. You've 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 can't make money, watch how fast Warner Bros. Records turns on you. I know from experience.

You have the Gangster Disciples breathing down your neck because you've named-dropped Larry Hoover, the gang's founder, in your music. Unlike the record and book publishing industries, these bad dudes don't understand the concept of public domain. They see you getting rich forever by rapping about their leader, and they don't like it. That's why they're on YouTube talking about how you need to go see them and cut a check.

It's a shame you can't enjoy life without spending part of your earnings on heavy security or risking your freedom by purchasing an arsenal. Remember, that's what landed T.I. and Lil Wayne in prison. You don't want that to happen to you. However, those are the consequences of rapping about being something you're 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 don't fall into the trap of believing you are really a gangster.

Trust me, you don't want to go out like Biggie Smalls or Tupac. It's time you squash your beefs.

    *waits for Ross to diss Luke*

    Luke made some great points, but he shouldn't have spoke about the GD's, especially when they stated it wasn't about Larry Hoover.

    no he can't. what is he gonna rap about? how is he gonna market himself? his chance to change his image was during the whole "Officer Ricky exposure". he chose to keep the image and go harder.

    Let that nigga live already...Why is it only in hiphop where artists are expected to hold up to and live out through their art? smh. This type shyt just sets us back, not only as a genre, but also in the bigger picture/underlining theme as BLACK ppl, SMH...niggaz really are self destructive.

    luke ain't say a word, that we didn't already know. Luke is practically telling Ross 2 "pay them dudes".

    it's fucked up how Ross worked hard to get to this position.
    blood, sweat, and tears to make his dream a reality. 2 only have pieces of shit, attempt to leech him off.
    ain't no checks being cut

    quick question: if Ro were to cut a check 2nite .
    how many of them dusty ass, no value, pieces of shit. that's in them videos, with their welfare fingers out , are gonna get a piece?????????????

    rick ross does rap about the things @blackcaesar & @blackgerald are saying but its at an arms length. its from the same "oh well. im a rich drug dealer lens" of everything else. he can save face by really hitting the ground with his Hold Me Back, Valley Of Death, Tears Of Joy song & just cut out the cocaine references.


    at this point if ross is rapping over the same type of beats (c'mon) & on some struggle/ how i came up shit his fans arent the most involved listeners to be able to tell or have a gripe..

    Well, Tupac and Biggie were ethered right along with Ross.

    But don't fall into the trap of believing you are really a gangster.
    Trust me, you don't want to go out like Biggie Smalls or Tupac. It's time you squash your beefs.

    Youre Talking bout self destruction? What other genre talks about moving kilos of coke like they scarface? Isn't that destructive to young impressionable minds? To tell them if you cant afford a bentley you aint shit.

    Sit down you played yourself trying to sound intelligent
