Several weeks ago, the acclaimed Mayor of Miami, disclosed to the world that he has been suffering from a skin disease called ‘Lupus’ for the past several years [click here to read]. During a radio interview promoting his autobiography, Trick Daddy revealed the disease and explained the story behind his diagnosis. Now the two Miami Hip-Hop veterans are not engaged in any controversy, however with the upcoming release of the Boss of Miami’s third album, ‘Deeper Than Rap,’ a certain verse on a track caught the attention of Trick Daddy that he really didn’t take a liking to. As a matter of fact, he was actually quite offended by the remark [click here to read].
The track in reference is that of the controversial ‘Valley of Death’ that Ross has put together to mention various facts that have been circulating within his life as of late. One of the lines in the track isn’t necessarily directed towards Trick; however it does address the condition he is stricken with. This was the actual verse taken from the song ‘Valley of Death:’
“Caught a little case, buddy had a little cheddar/ Pled out to 15, poured his life in a letter/ Very first line he called Trick Daddy stupid/ Said he had AIDS telling people that it’s lupus/ Not the one just to jump to conclusions/ I’m getting money, small talk can be a nuisance.”
That verse wasn’t a personal gesture towards Trick, but rather a trip down memory lane for Ross stating a personal fact. According to Trick, it seems as though he didn’t appreciate the verse all too much as the situation goes deeper than that. He recently spoke to MTV News about the track and why he deems it offensive towards him and the people suffering from the same skin disease. These were his comments:
“Millions of people are stricken with lupus. I have stayed out of the bullshit, I will continue to stay out of it. Ross had been with Slip-N-Slide Records as long as I have been with Slip-N-Slide Records. He’s known I’ve had lupus for 10 years. I was referred to my doctor by Ted Lucas who is the head of Slip-N-Slide Records. I would like to apologize to everyone suffering with lupus. I would like to apologize for the insults.”
