Trick Daddy expressed to MTV News that he has not taken too kindly to Rick Ross addressing his condition on the song “Valley of Death.” The song, on Ross’ upcoming Deeper Than Rap, contains the lines, “Caught a little case, buddy had a little cheddar/ Pled out to 15, poured his life in a letter/ Very first line he called Trick Daddy stupid/ Said he had AIDS telling people that it’s lupus/ Not the one just to jump to conclusions/ I’m getting money, small talk can be a nuisance.”
The rhyme doesn’t sound as if Ross himself is making the accusations, but rather someone in prison he was corresponding with. However, Trick still questions why “false” claims are being brought up and, regardless of the Boss’ intentions, Trick says his disease shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Ross did insult Trick in a video that recently surfaced online. In the clip, Ross after being told by the interviewer that it was Trick Daddy telling people that Rick was a prison guard had venomous words for his then-labelmate and sometime collaborator.
