Rick Ross Shades Nicki Minaj in New Diss Track ''Apple of My Eye''

Rick Ross may have only dropped his album a few hours ago, but it’s already stirring up drama in the hip-hop world.

Ricky Rozay released Rather You Than Me at midnight, and fans soon came to discover a few diss tracks aimed at several rap artists, including Nicki Minaj.

In his song “Apple of My Eye,” Ross claims he warned the Nicki’s ex Meek Mill about getting involved with her. “I told Meek I wouldn’t trust Nicki, instead of beefing with your dog you just give him some distance,” he raps.

Nicki and Meek Mill called it quits in January, ending their nearly two-year relationship.

She took to Twitter to confirm the news at the time. “To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon,” she said. “Have a blessed New Year. Love u.”

It appears the split wasn’t entirely amicable. Not only did Nicki throw some shade at her man when she took that stage during Drake‘s Paris concert last week, but Meek Mill took to Instagram to promote Ross’ new album and song, all the while dissing her right back.

“Rozay been told me don’t trust you,” he captioned the photo with Ross, adding, “3.17.17 #ratheryouthanme.”

Meanwhile, Nicki isn’t the only one Ross hits on his album.

In “Idols Become Rivals,” he also shades Cash Money co-founder Birdman for not paying his producers, an on-going legal battle within the record label.

“You would give us self-esteem and motivate our drive/But was in our pocket by the time we count to five/I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne,” Ross raps, referencing Lil Wayne‘s feud with Birdman. “His entire life he gave you what that was the game/I watched that whole debacle so I’m part to blame/Last request: can all producers please get paid.”

Monopoly Boots the Boot, Thimble and Wheelbarrow in Favor of New Tokens

It’s the end of an era.

Monopoly has booted the boot, thimble and wheelbarrow from its iconic game, choosing to replace the iconic pieces with a Tyrannosaurus rex, a penguin and a rubbery ducky. The new tokens will add a bit of terror and cuteness to the property acquisition game board, which turned to its fans to figure out the new pieces.

Hasbro announced the winners, which were selected from 64 options, Friday morning.

“While I’m sad to see the iconic thimble, boot, and wheelbarrow tokens go, it will be fun to have some new, fan-sourced tokens in the mix,” Jonathan Berkowitz, Hasbro’s senior vice president of marketing, said. “Personally, I’ve always especially liked the boot token, but I’m excited to move onto the T-rex.”

The other contenders were a winking emoji, a hashtag, an ’80s-style cellphone and a pair of bunny slippers. The Scottie dog, cat, top hat, race car and battleship will continue to have a place on the board…should players select them. The big reveal comes only a couple of days ahead of World Monopoly Day, March 19.

Since the game’s creation in 1933, Monopoly has had 20 different pieces from which players could choose, but the thimble, boot, top hat and race car were among the originals. This is the second time the game has hosted a contest to determine which pieces would stay or go. In 2013 Hasbro launched “Save Your Token,” and millions of voters opted to ditch the iron in favor of the cat.

What do you think of the new pieces? Sound off in the comments!
