After the recent incidents with Rick Ross, Uncle Luke has written an open letter to him in attempt to have Rozay squash his beefs.
Â Coming from someone who has survived many rap beefs himself, Uncle Luke is giving some friendlyÂ advice to Rick Ross about squashing his recentÂ beefs.Â
Rick Ross has been the target of someÂ threats fromÂ the Gangster Disciples as well asÂ last week's drive by shooting incident in Florida. These recent threats and attempts toÂ Rozay's life has caused Uncle Luke to reach out to Rick Ross in an open letter to help him out. This is what he had to say:Â
Dear Rick Ross:
As someone who survived several rap beefs, Iâm 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. Youâve paid your dues and youâve grown lyrically since the release of your debut album, Port of Miami, in 2006. Youâve 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 canât make money, watch how fast Warner Bros. Records turns on you. I know from experience how venues and the music industry would like to black ball you.
You have the Gangster Disciples breathing down your neck because youâve named-dropped Larry Hoover, the gangâs founder, in your music. Unlike the record andÂ book publishingÂ industries, these bad dudes donât understand the concept of public domain. They see you getting rich forever by rapping about their leader, and they donât like it. Thatâs why theyâre on YouTube talking about how you need to go see them and cut a check.
Itâs a shame you canât enjoy life without spending part of your earnings on heavy security or risking your freedom by purchasing an arsenal. Remember, thatâs what landed T.I. and Lil Wayne in prison. You donât want that to happen to you. However, those are the consequences of rapping about being something youâre 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 I donât want you to fall into the trap of believing you are really a gangster.
Trust me, you donât want to go out like Biggie Smalls or Tupac. Itâs time you squash your beefs.
