Rick Ross called out Birdman on the Rather You Than Me album cut, "Idols Become Rivals", and now, the hip-hop mogul has responded.

In an interview with Billboard on Friday (March 17), Birdman brushed off the disses, while adding the only thing that matters to him is "numbers".

"I don't get caught up in hoe sh*t, man," he said. "I just keep doing what I'm doing and keep pushing. 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*ck about: numbers, and puttin' them up."

In a separate interview with Billboard, Ross described "Idols Become Rivals" as a letter to a former idol in music. "It's basically me writing a letter to someone in the game that I looked up to damn near the most and I hate what things have come to," Ross said.

Following the song's release, Ross took to Instagram with a message for Lil Wayne.

The Level of respect and Love that I have for WAYNE makes it hard to sit back and not speak on the situation.The streets need you.Being a Boss means having the courage to say the things everybody thinking but scared to say.I can't wait for you to hear it.Midnight. #idolsbecomerivals
