Rick Ross Shows Off His Boxing Skills
Rick Ross has gotten in better shape in recent years, thanks in part to what appears to be a fairly regular regimen of training at boxing gyms. On Sunday, the rapper posted the above video to Instagram showing himself in the ring, writing, "We bought the city out last night @ Vanity Grand #Philly I luv u 4 it! Worked out @ Front Street Gym dis morning w/ Terrence Luis and @djcosmickev !! Still #Rossfit."
Back in November, Ross's handiwork lead to some light social sparring from Erykah Badu, the singer responding to a video of Ross in the gym by writing, "I'll whoop the shit out Rick Ross." The two have collaborated numerous times in the past, on the remix to Badu’s “Window Seat” in 2010 as well as on the “Maybach Music III” of Rick Ross’s 2010 album Teflon Don. If there was any doubt that Badu was just playing, the singer later wrote, "Hahahahahaha I love @rickyrozay.”
Ross is getting into game and album shape as the year ends, announcing just last month that his next release will be titled Rather You Than Me. The album is expected to drop in early 2017, though a more exact time frame isn't yet available. As for what it might sound like, Ross released "Buy Back the Block" with Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz a few weeks back.
