On his album Teflon Don, [artist id=”2000082″]Rick Ross[/artist] said he feels like Big Meech, Larry Hoover and MC Hammer. On Thursday (September 9) in Los Angeles, the imposing Miami hitmaker said he felt like onscreen Marine Jake Sully.
The Bawse has a very special surprise contribution to this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. On Thursday afternoon at the Nokia Theatre, with his A&R/ video director Spiff TV not too far away, Ricky Rozay praised this Sunday’s extravaganza.
“This is gonna be the dopest MTV VMAs ever,” Ross predicted. “I’m letting you know. Not only because I’m a part of it, but when I walked into the auditorium where the VMAs are being held, I felt like I stepped off a ship on Pandora. If you ever saw the movie ’Avatar,’ that’s the feeling. Everything feels big, everything feels futuristic. It feels space-age. We got the dopest female in late night hosting the show, Chelsea Handler. She’s on fire right now. She’s sizzling. She’s sexy as ever.
“But as soon as I walked in, just the ambiance from the show, it overtook me, watching the rehearsal,” he continued. “Get ready to tune in. Make sure if you never watched the MTV Video Music Awards, make sure this is your first one. And if you have [seen one], expect the game to be stepped up 2,000 percent. … It’s the best of music, it’s the best of performances, it’s the best host and the dopest set I’ve ever seen ever. This is Pandora.”
The 27th annual MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday. The party starts with MTV News’ VMA Pre-Show at 8 p.m., followed by the main event at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
