When you think of Rick Ross — aka The Boss, aka Ricky Rozay — the first thing that comes to mind probably is not fashion. Actually, it’s probably the last thing that comes to mind, placing far behind cars, drugs, guns, women, money, jewelry, you name it. However, when VH1’s own Janell Snowden caught up with the man that MTV recently named the #1 Hottest MC in the Game on the red carpet for the annual Met Costume Gala last night, we were surprised to learn that the man knows his designers.
“Tory Burch is super cool, know what I’m sayin’?” the Bawse explained to our VH1 News team. “Shout-out to Vera Wang. You know, I’m just a fan of the [fashion] culture.” Rozay also confessed that his all-black outfit was designed by “Michael Kors for the big boys,” which is a hilarious name for a new collection. Kors, of course, is well-respected in the hip-hop community, so much so that he got a shout-out from Nicki Minaj in the verse she contributed to Big Sean‘s “Dance (Ass)” remix. As far as the Tory Burch props are concerned, if you’re wondering why a 300+ pound man is interested in a designer whose main output are flats and handbags for women, it’s because she’s reportedly going steady with Warner music bigwig (and former Def Jam exec) Lyor Cohen.
