Maybach Music giant Rick Ross, in a post to his Instagram on Tuesday, made reference to popular slang used in Jamaica, all while expressing his love for the country and indicating that he would be visiting the island soon.
Rick Ross, whose given name is William Leonard Roberts II, is a rapper and record label boss who was born in Mississippi. Over his years as a rapper, he has been nominated for multiple Grammys.
According to biography.com, the American rapper grew up in Carol City, Florida, a poverty-stricken community north of Miami. Ross leaned toward songs by artists such as Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. As a multitalented youngster, Ross got a scholarship for American football at Georgia’s Albany State University for a year.
Still, he started writing rap lyrics that idealized drug dealers because of what he saw as a child and the lyrics of the songs he listened to.
Ross made his debut on former EPMD member Erick Sermon’s 2000 compilation Def Squad Presents Erick Sermon, appearing as Tephlon on a track called Ain’t Shhh to Discuss. Since then, the rapper has been toiling toward his career’s success.
In 2009, Ross started his own record label, Maybach Music Group (MMG). The label went on to achieve great success, releasing albums from heavyweights such as Meek Mill, Omarion, and Wale.
Rick Ross can be heard attempting a Jamaican accent in the Instagram post, which was done at his home, saying, “Jamaica di boss soon forward…mi gon bring my yute dem to come perform live.” Although the American rapper did not indicate a specific date, he also stated that he would bring companions who would also be performing live.
Earlier, an announcement was made that he would be performing at the 3-day event, Sandz Caribbean Music Festival’s Vacae Weekend in April (easter weekend from April 7 – 10) for a stage performance.
The record executive can also be heard making reference to another man, whom he calls “Rasta P.” Rasta P is then heard singing rhymes about the American superstar. The video was then labelled with the caption, “Rich vibes.”
The comment section came alive with jubilant laughing and fire emojis and someone commented, “😂😂😂😂 it’s the dance for me,” while another stated, “we caan wait.”
