Rick Ross is a businessman as much as he is a rapper.
“There’s a lot of networking to be done here,” he said on the red carpet at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, adding he had already done “three or four deals.”
Ross likes how his genre has taken what he sees as its rightful place at the annual ceremony.
“I feel like hip hop is most definitely more present at the Grammys,” he said, noting the presence of what he called such “underground legends” as Nas.
