GQ NAMES RICK ROSS “BAWSE OF THE YEAR” IN MEN OF THE YEAR ISSUE

GQ’s December Men of the Year issue recognizes the men (and women) who inspired, entertained, and excited us the most this year. And the list certainly wouldn’t have been complete without recognizing one of the year’s biggest “power-players”: Rick Ross. That’s why Rick Ross is named “Bawse of the Year” in GQ’s Men of the Year issue portfolio. GQ’s Devin Friedman catches up with rapper and Maybach Music Group founder to reflect on 2012 and get some advice from the hip-hop star and businessman.

Below are several interview highlights:

Rick Ross on 2012 and on being named the 10th most powerful man in hip-hop by The Source: “It’s been a power-player year. …I’m the typa dude who feels like he could take number two next year.”

…on advice he has for readers: “One, for Christmas go get yourself an MMG tattoo. Two, let’s all stop smoking blunts; let’s smoke out of papers.”

…and additional advice to women: “Ladies, you all should just love me. Let’s all have a beautiful year, let’s get this money.”
