Djerrahian says the shot popped up in Ricky Rozay’s new music video for his song, “Movin’ Bass” .. which features Jay Z. Djerrahian’s suing for all the profits they made off using the Jay Z image, and a court order to block them from further use. (TMZ)
ecently, Ross proclaimed he was a bigger “boss” than rap’s elite.
“I’m even a bigger threat than them. Because all the genius moves they’ve been able to pull off I’ve been able to watch and study from the sideline. I got to see some of these dudes make the biggest electronics deals, the biggest lifestyle deals, the clothing brands, whatever it may be, I got to see that before it was actually my time and I got to prepare and do what bosses do. Plot, big time. Remain war ready. And I think right now we in a position where in two or three years there won’t even be a doubt who the powerhouse is in this game.” (XXL Mag)
Ross also gave his take on winding down and cashing-in on retirement.
“Long as I’m havin’ fun. Long as the energy remains where it is, man, Ricky Rozay The Bawse gonna shine like the moon itself,” Ross said referring to any possible retirement plans. (XXL Mag)
