Rick Ross Champions J Dilla & Advises Justin Bieber
Rick Ross says Justin Bieber's situation "could be a lot worse," feels the singer will work through his issues.
Over the past few months, pop star Justin Bieber has made headlines for a variety of incidents. The Canadian singer was arrested last month after allegedly drag racing while under the influence and this month, it was reported that both Bieber and his father were “extremely abusive” to a flight attendant on a recent flight.
Despite Bieber’s various run-ins with the law, Miami rapper Rick Ross says things “could be a lot worse” for Bieb. While speaking with the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Ross was asked if he would invite the pop star to his newly bought 109-room Georgia estate.
“Most definitely. That’s the little homie, man,” Ross said when asked about inviting Bieber to his home. “And I feel like he gon’ work through this little patch…At the end of the day I look at it like, you know, imagine you being 19 with maybe well over a hundred million. It’s a lot of other things you could be doing other than egging houses. You know? It could be a lot worse than that. So, I feel like the homie gon’ work through it.”
Ross serves as one of a number of Hip Hop acts who have voiced their opinion on Bieber in the past few weeks. During an interview with AllHipHop, Wu-Tang Clan spitter Raekwon advised the crooner to “be a little bit more cautious” while Atlanta rapper T.I. stated that Bieber is currently going through a “transitional period.”
In addition to speaking on Bieber, Ross also addressed his upcoming album, Mastermind. While touching on the album, the Maybach Music Group founder was asked about a reference he made to the late J Dilla.
“That was just always one of my dreams in the back of my head, you know? Just hearing his production and his sound, it was just most definitely different,” he said. “So, I mentioned him on one of those type feeling records, you know? And this album most definitely has that balance. You know what I mean? That classic Ricky Rozay.”
Mastermind is currently scheduled for release on March 4 and will include guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, Kanye West, and more.
