How Did Rick Ross Get A Deal?


Boss, Ross, Toss, Floss, Cost…I’d like if you guys can tell me how this dude is signed to Def Jam. How did Jay-Z sign this dude. Listen to this freestyle and come up with 3 reason on how he got signed.

    His first album wasnt terrible. Nonetheless, he is one of those artists I never throw hate at since he is never on my radar. I am surprised that he has stayed in the light for so long. I assumed one hot single and he was gone forever.

    Sounds like someone was in the back of their truck reading and working on their hooked on phonics workbook.

    night
    fight
    light
    blight

    Much love to jay-z for giving the mentally retarded people a chance to come up in this cold and gruesome universe. A good samaritan he is.

    guys…

    rick ross is the boss. but this clip is embarrassing. how can you say you’ve never freestyled before? i think i can put better shit together than homeboy. the thing is, the man is a studio MC. you can’t tell me when they put his voice on a beat produced by the runners and then take it to the studio and enhance it like 30 times, you won’t jam to it. cuz he did it with hustlin’. and it worked well. that being said, he still can’t really rap. i think you said all the words that rhyme with boss earlier, PMD. and he doesn’t have too many rhymes after that. good grief.

    Well if he’s the Biggie of his city… Miami has a long muthafuckin way to go.
    He needs to do his research.. Biggie could actually ummmm.. freestyle. as a matter of fact he freestyled 80 percent of his songs…i could freestyle better than than while im takin’ a shyt….

    … and since we’re on the subject go pick a copy of that 80 Proof Mixtape and i do mean pick up cuz its free yes free… at most clothing boutiques around brooklyn…holla at real Hip-Hop.
