Rick Ross Vs. 50 Cent Beef History:
Although Rick Ross began a feud with Jackson over an alleged incident at the January 2009 BET Awards, Jackson told news sources he did not remember seeing Ross there. Late that month Ross’ “Mafia Music” was leaked on the Internet, with lyrics apparently disparaging Jackson. Several days later, Jackson released “Officer Ricky (Go Head, Try Me)” in response to “Mafia Music”. The following day, Ross appeared on Shade 45 (Eminem’s Sirius channel) and told Jackson to come up with something better in 24 hours.
Before leaving for Venezuela, Jackson uploaded a video (“Warning Shot”, telling Ross “I’ma fuck your life up for fun” and the first of a series of “Officer Ricky” cartoons.

You get a guy that was a correctional officer come out and base his entire career on writing material from a drug dealer’s perspective such as “Freeway” Ricky Ross.” Their feud rekindled at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards, where Jackson and G-Unit members Kidd Kidd, Mike Knox, Tony Yayo were seen on video attacking Gunplay (a member of Ross’ Maybach Music Group). Gunplay’s Maybach Music diamond necklace was stolen during the brawl, and several days later Jackson appeared at a Washington, D.C. bowling alley wearing Gunplay’s chain. On January 30, 2013, Jackson tweeted that Ross’ attempted drive-by shooting on his birthday three days earlier was “staged”
