Last December, Rick Ross went viral after walking off his “85 South Comedy Show” interview and never returned. Now the “Money in the Grave” is finally explaining what exactly caused his abrupt exit from the podcast.
During his Monday, April 25, appearance on the “The Breakfast Club,” the 46-year-old clarified that when he left the show, it was not done with malice. The Miami native claimed that when he left his conversation with co-host DC Young Fly, Karlous Miller, and Chico Bean, he initially went to use the restroom, noting that he was in “the zone.”
“I think I was just really in the zone,” he said when Angela Yee asked what really went down that day. “I was smoked out good, I was in the zone. When I’m in the zone and get one of them money calls, I just ease out that motherf-cker,” the rapper added.
Rozay also said that when he found out about the viral moment, “it was already everywhere online,” before adding, “I ain’t even realize it.”
“I was in the zone,” the entrepreneur continued. “I went into the bathroom, was on the phone, smoked one, and you go outside, and you just leave. I just left. Them my little homies, too. It was a cool interview. We smoking and chilling and sh-t, and man, I was in the zone.”
Fans on social media found the veteran rapper’s explanation hilarious. Many noted that they’ve also once walked off on friends, including one Instagram user who wrote, “I’ve known people (including myself) who’ve done it. so I get it …”
Another person added, “When I used to smoke weed I did this sh-t all the time high as f#ck just get up and leave don’t say bye or nothing just walk out in the middle of talking.”
Still, not everyone was convinced, including one critic who wrote, “He could’ve at least apologized tho cuz that was rude on top of that he talm bout ‘my lil homies’ like them boys ain’t making no noise cmon now Rozay we need a better lie.”
