Rick Ross, Very Confused About Africa

Rick Ross

Yesterday outsized rapper Rick Ross (twitter handle: “Mastermind”) tweeted two pieces of exciting news at once: firstly that he had landed “in the beautiful country of Africa” and secondly that the anticipated release of labelmate Wale’s album The Gifted was getting a lot of buzz. At least two things didn’t make sense. How has Ross (no relation to AIAC’s blogger of that name btw) not figured this thing out for himself yet? We know he’s already been to at least three African countries — South Africa, Gabon and Nigeria. And even then, why didn’t Wale, whose parents are Nigerian immigrants to the US and who is probably (?) traveling with Ross, intervene to prevent the man with the dollar signs in his name from thrusting his foot so forcefully into his mouth? In any case, Twitter did not waste time in ridiculing Mr Ross. Below we’ve listed some of the responses to Ross’ gaffe; they range from writer Teju Cole, comedian Trevor Noah, to assorted fans of the man who calls himself “Da Boss”. See if you can spot the theme that emerged.
