In last week’s episode of the 85 South Comedy Show, Rick Ross was deep into a discussion about his pre-fame days alphabetizing dope boys’ cassettes while working at a car wash, promoting his Rap Snacks and wine line, and reminiscing about collaborating with Jay-Z and Kanye West.
When the hosts asked Rick Ross to name his favourite album, Ross paused for a few moments before asking DJ Young Fly, Karlous Miller, and Chico Bean if he could “use this restroom one time and take this jacket off.”
The legendary MC stepped out of the frame for a few moments while the crew freestyled for two minutes, four minutes, and briefly appeared in the set’s corner before disappearing entirely. Then, a member of Rozay’s crew came on set to say he’d left and told the hosts that “something came up.”
“Did he have to dip?” DJ Young Fly inquired of the unidentified staffer, bemoaning the fact that they didn’t even “get no dap” before the Bawse bounced. “Now you see him, now you don’t,” Miller chuckled, adding, “he just came and left, man.”
“Is he in the van?” Young Fly inquired as an off-camera voice informed the trio that Ross had already pulled out and was on his way to the airport due to a “rush, last-minute” commitment. Bean dubbed Ross “The Phantom of the Opera” after his ghost show. “How are you going to vanish on a n—a like that?” Young Fly was perplexed. Everyone laughed as they dug into some Rap Snacks, with Young Fly promising to bring it up the next time they talk to Ricky. At the time of publication, a spokesperson for Ross had not responded to a request for comment on the rapper’s departure.
“Why the f–k didn’t he say ‘bye?'” “You may say ‘goodbye!'” Young Fly added that he noticed Rick Ross leave but assumed he was going outside for some fresh air. Bean chuckled, “He went to the bathroom and changed his mind about all this s–t.” “S–t happens,” Miller said calmly, chomping on chips. “I’ll tell you what, that’s how the f–k I’m leaving from now on!”
But don’t worry, the crew just kept going, vamping and chopping it up for another 90 minutes after some more snacking.
