Plus, Ciara, LeToya Luckett, Jadakiss, Chrisette Michele, Asher Roth, Akon, Teairra Marí, Flo Rida, Fat Joe, Jesse McCartney, Bun B, Melanie Fiona, and more go in front of the lens for our first-ever Photo Issue.

    Rick Ross is a fat bastard and his album sold a fortieth of what he bragged it would, literally. It’s 57 in the charts right now and sold 9,000 copies last week… he ain’t never hitting platinum and he don’t mean jack. He acts like he’s hot and he’s just a huge fat ugly f*ck.
