Rick Ross is trying his hand at acting on the small screen. Ross released a mini-movie online today, which he wrote and executive prooduced, called “Box Chevy” starring Tyrin Turner (Caine from Menace II Society) and Dennis L.A. White (D-Roc from Notorious). The duo plan on robbing Rozay, who rides around in a box Chevy for some reason, but their evil plan goes awry quickly.
The film then jumps into a music video showcasing Rick enjoying life in his native Florida. “I started with a Box Chevy, then I got a blue Lexus” raps Ross. Finally, the robbers try and get Ross and … we’ll let you watch and see how it ends for yourself.
Off-camera, Ross was recently photographed with Reebok CEO Uli Becker, although just a few hours earlier it was reported that Becker said about the MMG CEO: “It’s unfortunate because he’s a great guy, he just has stupid advisors around him” The drama stems from Ross being dropped by Reebok as a spokesman after harsh criticism over what many deemed him promoting date rape on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” (“Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it/I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”).
Ross did apologize, “I dont condone rape.Apologies for the #lyric interpreted as rape. #BOSS,” and added, “Apologies to my many business partners,who would never promote violence against women. @ReebokClassics @ultraviolet.” But it was still too late.
