The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
Rick Ross has a new single coming out called “Sweet Life,” but recently, the CEO of the Maybach Music Group was living the suite life in Las Vegas. The Boss celebrated his birthday at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, where the Kingpin suite cost him $25,000 a night.
“It only makes sense to come out to Vegas,” Ross told Mixtape Daily. ” ’Cause to me, Vegas is the city of dreams. It started out as the desert. Once the sun goes down, there’s a lot of stars in the streets.
“You come right out of your bedroom to the bowling alley, baby,” a shirtless Ross said standing on the lanes in his suite, right before rolling a strike.
When it comes to knocking down pins, Ross’ confidence is at an all-time high.
“I get it down with my homies,” the Miami native said of his bowling skills. “Gunplay got a little something. I would love to issue a challenge to anybody that think they could go cold turkey on the Boss. I hear Sway got something, but I don’t think Sway want none. You feel me? This is the winner’s side.”
Uh-oh, shots fired. Rick the Ruler wants to go up against MTV News’ very own Sway. Surely this is going to be a showdown for the ages. The Mixtape Daily family is about to Don King the event in a major way. Of course, we had to get a response from the big homie down the hall.
“You don’t wanna see me on the lanes, man,” Sway said after watching the footage of Ross’ challenge, and the West Coast hip-hop veteran talks a lot of smack as well.
“I know you been hanging out with Diddy a lot; talk to Diddy about me,” Sway retorted, sending his own message to the Carol City Kingpin. “I’m gonna say this, Rick Ross challenged me. I gladly accept his challenge. More importantly, than me just taking it to the lanes, I think we should put something on it. We should do it for a charity in Haiti. Or even the Haitian community in Florida, those who may have suffered from this catastrophic event that hit the island. More importantly man, I think after we get busy on these lanes, and I take care of my business, I feel like I should get mentioned in a metaphor on one of your radio singles. I wanna be called ’Sway the Boss.’ That’s what we gambling for. That’s what the stakes are. The stakes are high. I’m taking the challenge.”
You can expect a lot of trash talking between the two as we figure out when to have this face-off. It’s all in love and fun on both sides.
That hasn’t always been the case when it comes to Ross and boxing champ (and friend of 50 Cent) Floyd “Money” Mayweather . Ross has dissed the pugilist in a couple of tracks, most recently on the Triple C’s song “Go,” and the two even had a brief run-in on New Years Eve in Vegas. But it’s all water under the bridge now, and Ross says the friction is dead. He ran into Mayweather again in Vegas, and things were peaceful.
“Yeah, bumped into Floyd Mayweather,” Ross said. “Most definitely. We chopped it up like G’s and after a discussion, we shook hands. So that’s squashed. It’s a new year, it’s time to get new money. Y’all know what it is. I kept it 1,000.”
