Earlier this week, Rick Ross released the official video for "Idols Become Rivals," the Rather You Than Me track that put Rozay's beef and feelings towards Cash Money's Birdman on front street. A majority of the track deals with Lil Wayne's issues, as well as the theory regarding DJ Khaled and Birdman's relationship. One name that was mentioned on the track was Turk's, the former Hot Boy who did an eight-year bid on gun possession charges stemming from a shooting incident. And while Ross stated in "Idols Become Rivals," "Turk came home, take that boy a three piece," Turk wishes he wouldn't have mentioned his name at all.

"As far as speaking out for another man," Turk told TMZ, "he can't speak up for me." Turk says he has respect for both Rick Ross and Birdman, and that he and Birdman have squashed their beef. "Me and Birdman, we dealt with our situation, and we handled it like men." The situation Turk is referring to is the lawsuit he filed back in 2015 looking for a reported $1.3 million he said was owed in royalties. Turk says it's all good now, though, and doesn't think Rick Ross shouldn't have used his name in the song "without hollering at me."

Turk also shouts out a number of members of the old Cash Money family, including Slim and Mannie Fresh. Turk wants everyone to "come together," but he does say he likes Ross' "Idols Become Rivals."

That's some big shit from a Cash Money OG. Something tells us this isn't going to end Rick Ross' issues with Birdman, though.
