Believe it or not, Rick Ross really is a boss. I don’t mean boss like he writes out checks, I mean BOSS like the Lonely Island meant it when they sang “Like A Boss”. He just carries himself with an heir of power, and even though some find it intimidating, rumor is he is a very nice and funny guy in real life. To help prove that fact, there’s this story. The story of Rick Ross buying super expensive watches for everyone who appeared on his album because the album went number one.
As soon as he heard that his album went number one, Rick Ross went to Refeallo and Co and bought 6 watches that cost him something upwards of a quarter of a million dollars. Some of the people who received the watches are DJ Khaled, Wale, and a few others. Can you imagine that, for even a moment. You do a guest vocal track on one of your boy’s tracks, and when the album goes number one, he gives you a Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch. We are talking about a watch that can cost upward of 50 K.
So next time you think Rick Ross is all about himself and his own “things”, realize, dude is generous as well. Now I just need to sit around and hope he wants me to guest on a future track at some point. I have a feeling that wont be happening anytime soon.
