XXL XXclusive: Rick Ross, Under Oath


via XXL

XXLMag.com: How did you come up with that line about 50’s baby mama and burning down the house? ‘Cause that was the thing that triggered him.

Rick Ross: Most definitely. And what it was, it was a true statement. I was just smoking at home watching the news just like everybody else.

XXL: Did you know he would come back at you with something?

Ross: Of course. That’s why I did it.

XXL: That’s why you did it?

Ross: Of course. You gotta understand this is chess not checkers. You gotta understand a man’s next moves. When a woman is scorned, you have to understand that there’s gonna be a backlash, which is totally fine.

[audio] Curtis Calls Funk Flex

Here he goes talking to Flex about the bashment he is cooking up for Ross.  This could be ugly.  Oh yeah, it wouldn’t be fitting if I didn’t add that this segment of Flex’s show was sponsored by NY Corrections.  How ironic is that?
