Rick Ross Named ‘Bawse of the Year’ by GQ

Rick Ross has had an incredible year. After successfully launching his Maybach Music empire, releasing his fifth album God Forgives, I Don’t, and headlining the “MMG Tour,” the Miami rapper has been named “Bawse of the Year” by GQ. Rozay rocks a fur coat as he throws up the middle finger in the magazine’s “Men of the Year” issue with cover star Rihanna. In the article, he reflects on his “power-player year” and shares some advice for the ladies.

On 2012 and being named the 10th most powerful man in hip-hop by The Source: “It’s been a power-player year. … I’m the typa dude who feels like he could take number two next year.”

On his advice for readers: “One, for Christmas go get yourself an MMG tattoo. Two, let’s all stop smoking blunts; let’s smoke out of papers.”

On his wishes for the new year: “Ladies, you all should just love me. Let’s all have a beautiful year, let’s get this money.”
