Imaginary Beef?

"Go 'head witcha sneak dissin n*ggaaaaa..." - Jeezy

Say it ain't so man!! My two favorite Southern rappers beefin??? I don't know man, your guess is as good as mine. It's crazy to me because I believe this is the first time in hip-hop history where two superstars are apparently going at each other, but keep publicly denying it.

Let's do a quick recap to see how we got here:

1.) Rick Ross drops the street/club banger "B.M.F. (Blowing Money Fast)" on his early Summer mixtape (and Teflon Don prequel) The Albert Anastasia EP.
2.) The streets fall in love with the song and Ross soon has the entire USA screaming "I THINK I'M BIG MEECH!!"
3.) The internet starts buzzing that the real Big Meech (born Demetrius Flenory, currently serving fed time as the leader of the notorious Black Mafia Family -- or B.M.F.) and the B.M.F. family isn't exactly cool with the fact that a former Correctional Officer is using his name to further his fame.
4.) The real Big Meech gives Ross the co-sign from behind bars which deads all of the rumors.
5.) New rumors fly that Young Jeezy -- while never known to claim being an actual member of B.M.F. is very well affiliated with them from his "come up" years -- is salty over the B.M.F. record and has secretly recording a remix/diss using the same instrumental.
6.) A brand new Jeezy song surfaces titled "B.M.F. (The Real Blowin Money Fast)" with a recorded conversation with the incarcerated Big Meech. But it's on a totally different beat and with seemingly different lyrical content. People don't know how to take it......is it a diss? just another record? why he call it "The Real B.M.F."?
7.) Rick Ross goes on radio to say that he's confused about the record Jeezy dropped and that he doesn't have beef with Jeezy.
8.) Jeezy drops the long anticipated remix to the original B.M.F track on his 1000 Grams Mixtape titled "Death before Dishonor (B.M.F. Remix)" and spits some subliminal barbs toward Ross ("How you blowin' money fast? You don't know the crew /Are you part of the fam? Sh*t, I never knew).
9.) Rick Ross' protege and Triple C's member Torch goes in on Jeezy on twitter.
10.) Rick Ross drops new song titled "Summa's Mine" and hurls some subliminal darts back at Jeezy (self-made, you just affiliated, really a waterboy, n*gga you entertainment/Blowin Money Fast/Yellow Maserati/Dead man walkin')
11.) Jeezy says he isn't beefing with Ross

So after all of that....we back at square one. And we as fans of hip-hop not supposed to know when beef exists? We've seen LL vs. Kool Moe Dee, Big vs. Pac, Jay-Z vs. Nas, 50 Cent vs. Everybody, Ice Cube vs. NWA, Boogie Down Productions vs. The Juice Crew --- point is, WE KNOW WHAT BEEF IS!!!

Don't get me wrong, I don't particularly like beef or diss tracks. But I hate subliminal dissing even worse than that. I'd have way more respect for you if call the man name out -- this whole saga equates to talkin about somebody behind their back and then smiling in their face. If you don't like dude, LET IT BE KNOWN!! That's all I'm saying. But for the sake of hip-hop, for the sake of the knuckleheads in hip-hop and just for the sake of the direction our music is taking, I hope it's not real; and if it is PLEASE let's keep this on wax. The South needs both of these giants.

HOLLA.
