“You know what my thoughts are, man. We just laugh at it,” Ross told MTV recently in New Mexico.
“He’s smart,” Ross said about Eminem not addressing him and avoiding a rhyme battle. “That’s what I’m waiting for. That’ll be a gift — a great Christmas present for me. But y’all know what I think. I think everybody knows. It’s all ‘hood, man. Shout-out to Mariah Carey, she needs to reach out to me. We could eradicate some things.”
The vibe is not 100 percent antagonistic, however, when it comes to Ross’ thoughts on Marshall Mathers — he actually has some praise for Em’s latest verse.
“On a better note, I wanna shout out Eminem. I heard a record he did with Cash Money’s own Lil Wayne and Drake and Kanye West. Eminem, you’re smart. I understand … we all know what you doing now. You’re moving on to better things. Like I said, he might wanna do a record with me. We here. Triple Cs.”
Ross, the Carol City Cartel, Masspike Miles and the rest of his musical family are putting out their mixtape Maybach Music Part III: White Sand real soon. The title signifies that they started in the streets and are now indulging in the finer things in life.
“We still on that hustle,” Ross said. “I’m hungry like a new artist. It’s a double disc of all new music as well as a DVD. It’s taking the street mixtapes to the next level.”
Triple Cs are filming the video for their first single, “Go,” with the Birdman featured in the production. The album Custom Cars and Cycles is due to drop this fall.

Remember when Oprah Winfrey got the whole world amped by giving her entire studio audience a car? Well Ludacris does. So, if you’re in desperate need for a ride, visit The Ludacris Foundation and your prayers may get answered.
Only 20 cars will be given away for the “Stars for Cars-LudaDay Giveaway” program, which is a LudaCares initiative.
You must (1) need a car, (2) be 18 or older for Luda to give you one, (3) have a valid Georgia drivers license and (4) be able to pay for taxes, registration, tags and insurance on your own before you can even consider applying.
If you meet all the requirements, just let Luda know in 300 words why he should give you one of the cars and you might just be trading in that Marta card for a pimp mobile. Now, yes, Oprah may have lit the whole audience up with new cars but, in this recession, 20 used cars is still quite impressive.
September 3 is the deadline. Cars will be given away Sunday, September 6 from 1pm-3pm at Nissan South, 6889 Jonesboro Road, Morrow, Georgia 30260.
