In an interview with Billboard, the New Orleans mogul spoke on Rozay’s “Idols Become Rivals” record. “I don’t get caught up in hoe sh-t, man. I just keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing,” he tells Billboard. “I don’t get caught up in that, I don’t play like that. I’m a man and I stand my ground and I do my thing. Numbers don’t lie, and that’s all I give a f–k about: numbers, and puttin’ them up.”

One of Ross’ biggest supporters is the very man he’s defending on record, Lil’ Wayne. After an encouraging Instagram post by the Miami MC, Weezy F. Baby expressed appreciation to Yung Renzel. “dam big bro that msg hit me in the heart and put the motivation on automatik start, tweeted Weezy. “I needed that. 1 boss 2 another.”
