Rick Ross Responds To His Step Your Rap Game Up In XXL’s 150th Issue

Last night (September 9), Rick Ross and MMG—Rockie Fresh, Stalley, Meek Mill, DJ Scream, Omarion—held an exclusive autograph signing at J&R Music Store in NYC. The event was a meet and greet for fans that are patiently waiting for the crew’s upcoming compilation project, Self Made Vol. 3, due out on September 17. With 100 or so diehard fans in attendance, the biggest boss made sure everyone—including media outlets—felt welcome. Well, not everyone.


In our 150th issue featuring Drake on the cover, we highlighted in Step Your Rap Game Up one of Ross’s lines from “Oil Money Gang” that wasn’t up to par. It seems Ross caught wind of it and responded rather bluntly when we tried to get a drop from him. Needless to say, Ross has chosen who he fucks with in the hip-hop publication game.
