Legally troubled rapper and entrepreneur Rick Ross gave an interview to Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” today, touching on many moments of his varied, occasionally arrested career. One moment—focusing on how he handles personnel management at his businesses—stood out, though, as reported on by Pitchfork. When asked by co-host Angela Lee why his label Maybach Music Group had never signed a female rapper, Ross responded with a pretty standard music industry deflection: He’s worried he’d inevitably have sex with the talent in question.
“You know, I never did it because I always thought, like, I would end up fucking a female rapper and fucking the business up,” Ross said, and it’s worth pointing out that at no point in this frank discussion of human resources protocol does Ross indicated that he’d try to have sex with his employee
Well this is the biggest nonstory of all time. This is common knowledge, right? Everyone knows that Rick Ross is straight up irresistible. You get him alone in a studio with a female rapper and there is a 1000% chance that they’re banging within the hour. As it was written.
You have to feel bad for the man. He’s out here trying to build a brand. Trying to put together the best roster of rappers and he’s limited to one gender because of his sexual gravitas. I blame these women who lack self-control around that physical masterpiece of a man.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you respect Rick Ross for not mixing business and pleasure. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
