Rick Ross to Host 2017 MTV Woodies

Rick Ross is getting his hustle on in 2017.

Not only is he gearing up to drop his ninth album Rather You Than Me on March 17, but the Bawse is hosting and performing at the 2017 MTV Woodies, which will air live on March 16 at 11 p.m. ET from SXSW in Austin, Texas.

“That was a big play,” Renzel told Billboard. “The Woodies have always been cool, I performed at the Woodies with the Clipse [in 2009] and I’ve been back a few times. But my new album Rather You Than Me will be up in stores on the 17th, so it just felt right to mesh all the dope concerts, a lot of dope artists and really just the culture. The fans that make the world go ’round at the Woodies, so I felt like that’s what we should touch.”
