Young Goldie takes the high road in his response to his former boss.
Irv Gotti recently lashed out at Lloyd for his actions after he was released from The Inc., but the singer is taking the high road. Speaking with Shade 45’s Sway Calloway (via RR), Lloyd explained that he has no ill will towards his former label boss and that his statements came as a surprise.
“I just want to say I have no problems with nobody, right? I know all his people, real close, from BJ to his sister, family... We all pretty cool,” he said. “So that’s definitely one man’s opinion about the situation and I’m just thankful that his opinions don’t dictate my future, that his attitude doesn’t really affect my life, or his problems don’t affect my life.”
He also addressed claims that Gotti made about launching his career, but he maintained that he’s self-made. “I think in the interview he says something about I took him and I helped him out or something, basically put me on. But when I met Irv, I brought him all my music and everything I’ve ever released has all come from me. Irv never produced, he never wrote anything. The only thing he did was release it for me, which was great, and I’m very thankful for it.”
Gotti also said that if Lloyd were to get hit by a car in front of him, he would pay him no mind. “As far as getting hit by a car, I just hope it’s a car full of boobies. A car made of butter so I just slide off,” joked Lloyd.
Lloyd explained that collaborating with Gotti foe 50 Cent was about “personal achievement” and that he wishes nothing but the best for him.
“I just pray that he continues to do the same thing, because he’s a great person, he’s got a lot of great ideas. And he deserves to be happy,” he said. “People say weird shit when they mad. Because of that, I don’t know if it’s a menopause thing or a midlife crisis thing, but I’m definitely not his enemy and he knows that.”
