Rick Ross has had a busy week — dropping an album and several videos, helping to bring Mariah back. Between all that, do you think he also found time to get his Fiona Apple ticket before the show sold out?
The new “911” video finds Ross cruising the moonlit streets of Los Angeles in the 911 Porsche for which the menacing God Forgives, I Don’t song is named. Spliced in with quick cuts are shiny chains, XXL sports jerseys, multiple sunglass changes, and all the rest of the Rozayian embellishments that make for a Ross video. And then, atypically so, The Bawse pulls up to a venue with a marquee that says “SOLD OUT,” but above it reads Fiona Apple’s name instead of his own. Huh? Ruh.
A moment so glaring and unforeseen as this cannot possibly be a coincidence. MMG is woefully shy a female member (unless you’re counting the drop girl), and so we’ll take this opportunity to suggest that Ross might have found just the one to fill the void. He’ll have to hurry, though, before Kanye makes a move of his own.
