In a recent interview on an Arizona radio station, Rick Ross spoke about the corrections officer fiasco that has boosted him into the center of scandal. But while most sites are reporting that he has yet again denied it, I want to analyze his quote. He says, and I quote,
“In the game, it’s real competitive. Competitors have to do what they have to do to eat. We making the best music. Y’all seen the BET Awards, y’all saw the magazine. We the biggest in the game, we the best in the game. Just keeping it real. And anytime, somebody can attack my character, like I said, you get nothing from the boss. I don’t give haters the pleasure.”
“When you get to my level you are a great conversation piece. I’m big on the blogs. I’m big on the magazines. and I appreciate that as an artist. That’s why I’m in the game. I got in this game. I got in the game to introduce people and to make great music. And that’s what it’s about.”
He goes on to say, “Keep the rumors coming. We gonna keep the records coming. We gon’ keep the music coming. Like I said, I’m one of the realest sources of this real street music in this game. Straight out of Miami, straight out of M-I-Yayo. One of my closest homies was on America’s Most Wanted.”
Now I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m loving this so much, I’m not gonna stop talking about it until I get a clear YES or NO from Rick Ross. I need him to say “no, i was not a corrections officer.” just like that…in a complete sentence! Seems like he’s saying a whole lot of words that amount to absolutely nothing. This is not a denial. It is a calculated publicity move to avoid the question. At least that’s what it sounds like to me.
