Sometimes things just fall into place. Moments after Maybach Music Group’s latest #1 product, Meek Mill, called out Drake’s rhyme-writing on social media, Rick Ross expressed his solidarity, sharing Meek’s words. According to some late-night web-surfers, the symbolic act came after R.R. first sided with Drizzy—before deleting a highly-controversial tweet (screen-captured by several reputable sources). The tweet, saying “Drake >>>>>>Meek” is heavily in question. Fans are well aware that Ross and Drake have a long (longer than Drake and Meek’s) history of friendship and collaboration. However, the MMG founder and CEO is now publicly riding with his family, re-tweeting the following:

Curiously, the “Family Ties” video falls right into the storyline. A solo cut from 2014’s Hood Billionaire, one of Ross’ most introspective songs of recent years takes audit of his life and those in it. The Miami, Florida-based mogul who is currently facing some legal woes (while foe, 50 Cent is doing the same, related to their late 2000s beef), waxes wordplay that ties to De la Soul, Michael Rappaport, and his own health issues.

Is this serendipitous or opportunistic?

Where do you think Rawss’ allegiances truly lie?
