Rick Ross brought some Maybach Music Group love all the way across the Atlantic (as in the ocean) to the motherland this weekend. The Miami rapper made a trip to Lagos, Nigeria for a show and MMG’s official video documentarian, Spiff TV Films, was along for the trip, so you can expect visuals soon. “Filming in the slums in Lagos.i just bought out the whole grocery store and gave it to the village. #MMG presence strong in our homeland,” tweeted Rozay.
It doesn’t seem like Wale, who is Nigerian (but born in DC), was along for the trip, but the Bawse gave him a shout out, tweeting, “I Salute #Lagos for having me.my trip wuz #boss gotta rep for my lil bro’s @Wale & Vic.luv,” Rozay.
Just this week, the “Hold Me Back” rapper appeared on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine. In the interview, the Miami native revealed that it was a friend getting shipped to the bing that eventually led him to employment as a correction’s officer. Terry Richardson also dropped more pics from the mag’s photo shoot.
Rick Ross’ new album, God Forgive, I Don’t, is in stores now. Check out photos from his trip to Nigeria in the gallery.
