Rick Ross also revisits rumors that he signed Trina to Maybach Music Group.
Last week, the director for Rick Ross' video for "Hold Me Back" took to Twitter to state that BET had banned the clip. During an interview with Power 105's The Breakfast Club, Rick Ross explained that the network no longer has a ban on the visuals, stating that he spoke wtih BET president Stephen Hill and has a "super clean" version on deck.
"Yeah man, shout out to Stephen Hill. I did an interview where I said I respect his mind. Homie done showed me love over the last five, six years, so I was going to respect his mind either way. I seen him yesterday and we had a conversation and he gave me the green light," he said. "Just based on the content of the record, not as much the visuals, and I respected that. But we worked it out. Super, super clean BET edit is on deck."
He also revisited rumors that he will be signing Trina to Maybach Music Group. Rozay said that the signing has been discussed, but nothing is set in stone.
"Nah, not yet. She was in the studio with us two weeks ago. I just want to see heer keep doing her thing. She showed me love early on. I'm still a fan of hers, and you never know, it's still a huge possibility. We spoke about it. But right now, I've got to focus on my team."
As for his bus vandalism that took place in Detroit, Michigan, the MMG honcho explained that a homeless man busted into his ride and stole his Xbox, video game and food. He said that he forgave the intruder for his actions.
"We had a show and we on promo for God Forgives, I Don't. We went to our show that night and went back to our hotel after the show. I believe the bus was parked across the street or somewhere. But just to make a long story short, the bus, the window was broken. They broke into the bus, they took my Xbox, my Call of Duty and they ate my leftover Chick-fil-A," he said. "Basically, there was broken into, they took the XBox, took the little grub... Found out it was a homeless dude. God Forgives, I Don't, but I forgave him."
