Rick Ross: “F#ck Jimmy Kimmel”
Kanye West’s interview with BBC 1’s Zane Lowe got a lot of people talking and clowning, and inadvertently kicked off a war of words with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. MTV News recently caught up with Rick Ross, and when asked about the situation, he made it clear who he was siding with. “I really didn’t watch all the interview. I just saw some of the Jimmy Kimmel shit,” said Ross. “Fuck Jimmy Kimmel. You know we riding with the culture. So, Jimmy Kimmel he ain’t welcome here no more. You understand it? People who cross that line they not welcome no more.”
As far as Kanye’s interview, which was spoofed by Kimmel starting the friction, Rozay said he was proud of Yeezy’s ambition. “I just love his passion,” he added. “And I feel anybody that love what they do you gotta respect someone that is that passionate about what they do because homie a hundred mill. You can just sit back and really don’t give a fuck, but he actually cares about the culture. He puts that much passion into it.”
