Rick Ross Talks Street Credibility and Anthony Weiner in GQ Magazine Interview
Hip-Hop's biggest "bawse" Rick Ross explains the virtues of being a boss in the October issue of GQ magazine. The Miami rhyme-spitter talks about talks about his success, his street credibility and gives his thoughts on the Anthony Weiner scandal in the interview.
GQ writer Devin Friedman chats with the big man at his Atlanta house where he is recording music for his new album, 'God Forgives, I Don't.' Ross explains how he's living the glamorous life. "I just have my homeys or whatever bringing me the best food," Rick Ross explained. "I smoke the best weed. I get the best massages. I keep myself in s--- like this," he says referring to his clothing. What a lucky guy.
When asked if he had a girlfriend, he said no. "I'm single," he said. "I'm enjoying life. Being a boss. Like all true bosses, one day you gotta give it up."
Some of the interesting parts of the interview comes when Rozay expounds his street philosophy on current events. Particularly when talk of the Anthony Weiner Twitpic scandal comes up. When he was told that the disgraced Congressman sent a picture of his nether regions to a female follower, he responded, "Real niggas don't send d--- flicks."
Elsewhere in the interview, Rozay responds to critics who question his street credibility because he was a former Florida corrections officer. "But I saw the underworld of Miami Vice. A dude we grew up with was on America's Most Wanted [and] an $80 million drug ring came from my neighborhood," he says. "The reason street m-----f-----s cool with me is if you don't come from that life, you can't get away with portraying that life. That's the story I tell. That's the story I saw. You saw a plaque at the house for a good friend of mine who was murdered in front of his wife and three kids. A good friend. P-Nut. Rest in peace."
Whether you believe he was a drug kingpin or not, Rick Ross is certainly one of top dudes in rap. As he establishes his record label, Mayback Music Group, it won't be long before he becomes the boss of all bosses.
