American rapper Rick Ross has proven just how Jamaican he is by posting clips of himself speaking the island’s native language.
Much to the delight of local fans, he kept repeating, “Rich ah lie?!” one of the newer sayings in Dancehall circles thanks to Valiant.
“Biggest boss in di bombocl**t whole wide world…” Rick Ross said in a video he posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2023.
“Rich, ah lie?! Eeeh? Yes!” He further exclaimed as he showed off his fancy jewelry.
Afterwards, he posted a bottle of Belaire Champagne and said, “Di good champagne dem, ah lie? Jets, ah lie? Jewels, ah lie? RICH, ah lie?!”
The rapper finished off the clips by revealing to locals that he will be on the island soon.
“Jamaica, di boss soon fawud! Yuh zeet? Mi soon fawud. Mi goan bring mi yute dem fi come perform live,” he said, before one of his cronies began singing in the background.
Rick Ross’ recognition of Valiant is only a drop in the bucket for the line of success he has seen since his claim to fame in October last year. His tracks Dunce Cheque, C.A.L., Siance, North Carolina and St. Mary have all seen healthy figures on YouTube.
He has also been a part of major bookings for well attended shows like Sting.
