“Freeway” Ricky Ross Has Stopped Others From Confronting Rapper Rick Ross

The beef, Ricky Ross a drug kingpin feels that the rapper is using his name to succeed and get further in his career. He even took Ross to court over it in 2010, claiming copyright infringement , but lost.

Now in a recent interview Ricky Ross claims that he has had to stop Suge Knight and others from taking the issue further.

“It’s hard,” he said when asked how he keeps people from confronting Ross on the streets. “Trust me, these dudes in L.A. don’t like what he’s done…Even when I lost the lawsuit, three of the shot callers from the hood came to me and said, ‘Is it time yet?’ I was like, ‘Nah, man.’ I don’t want that. I don’t want nobody to do nothing to him. They want to put a no-fly zone on him, saying he can’t come to L.A.”

“Even Suge Knight came out. Suge stepped to me one day like, ‘Let me handle this.’ I was like, ‘Nah.’ It ain’t about that.”

MTV Wrap Up – The UK Rap Rundown

The Olympics is what everyone was talking about last week, with the opening ceremony on Friday being rather explosive and extravagant. We saw familiar faces such as Mr BeanJames Bond and the ‘Queen’ jumping out of a helicopter…

Dizzee Rascal was given the honour of recording the official Olympic Song of the London 2012 Olympic Games. At the ceremony, he performed the track ‘Scream’ which features the first lady of Dirtee Stank, Pepper along with ‘Bonkers’. Wretch 32 opened the Olympic Torch Relay Finale in London’s Hyde Park. This was a great moment for the urban music industry, showing the popularity and strength it has.

Margate rapper Mic Righteous previously released a diss track to Tim Westwood called ‘Sack City’ which has now been taken off YouTube after the ‘Big Dawg’ put in a complaint about it. Mic tweeted a picture of the video, which has a message on it stating, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Tim Westwood.” Considering the track came out over a month ago in June, it has taken quite a while and everybody has probably heard it by now anyway…

Hip-hop collective Caxton Press have been hard at work releasing video after video. Last week the visuals to ‘Touch The Sun’ came out, which is the eighth video from their ‘Shame The Devil’ album.

Sho Shallow showed us another side to him as he took a more laid back and melodic approach for new track ‘Weed In My Lungs,’ a refix of Kirko Bangz’s ‘Drank In My Cup’ – which has also previously seen remixes from J. Cole and 2 Chainz.

Manchester’s Lyrican put out the first joint US and UK hosted mixtape ‘The Problem Child’ with Charlie Sloth and DJ Drama. The 15 track project includes the internet hit ‘Simon Cowell’. He is becoming one of rap’s most promising figures and the mixtape proves why with his intelligent wordplay and strong delivery.

There are two freestyles that have caught my eye this week; the first one goes to USG’s youngest member 15-year-old Geko, who brought heat to Charlie Sloth’s Fire In The Booth. He tells us a few stories through the first track and then gets into an emotional freestyle.

With the re-launch of the Grime Daily website and the name change to GRM Daily, rapper DVS was the first artist after the re-launch to put out a Daily Duppy. He slows it down with some deep bars for the first half before switching it up over the ‘Rack City’ beat – check it out!

This hasn’t stopped Mic, will Westwood try and remove this as well?
