Rick Ross Clarifies Trump Assassination Lyric

By Jeff Cornell

Rick Ross is well-known for his lyrical and explicit rhymes, but a line about Donald Trump in “Free Enterprise” recently drew criticism and he has since clarified the lyric in question.

On “Free Enterprise”—which features John Legend—Ross spits, “Assassinate Trump like I’m Zimmerman / Now accept these words as they came from Eminem.” In an interview with Rolling Stone, the Miami MC explains that the line refers to a “lyrical assassination.” “I would never advocate violence on Trump or anyone,” Ross says. “That’s me being a poet, putting words together in my art form, with no violence in my heart at all. Clarify that. Matter of fact, my cameraman was Trump’s caddy at his golf course for five years, and he says Trump is cool as f—.”

In the interview Ross also elaborates on the line about Eminem saying it’s a “huge possibility” that he can get away with saying things other rappers cannot. He adds, “That’s why I said that line, so maybe this question would come up. But I’m not really into a white-black race card. Some of my best friends are white.”

The Boss also discusses his dramatic weight loss crediting the 70-plus pound drop with “RossFit,” which he explains as “CrossFit mixed with a blunt or two.” Ross adds, “I still eat my Wingstop, but I got rid of a lot of the soda and the rice and all that nonsense.”

The 39-year old MC also finds time to throw some shade at 50 Cent saying their relationship is “really amusing.” He says, “I’m the biggest L he ever took. I admire him for being able to hold his head up in a city that has revoked all of his passes.”
