Rick Ross' love for the Miami Heat is solidified. It wasn't enough for the Carol City native, often seen courtside at AAA, to wear team memorabilia.
The rapper went and got himself a tattoo of the flaming basket, right by his temple (um, ouch?).
Vibe reports that the Miami native visited a Farmingdale, New Jersey, tat shop this week called Unroyal Ink, which Instagrammed a picture of its famous client. "Tattooing the Hood Billionaire," read the caption, referencing the name of his new album.
Never miss a local story.
MTV News spoke to the shop's owner, Ian Griffith, about the experience, which involved a lot of patience: “I’ve been tattooing for eight years and I’ve never tattooed someone who can sit and get tattooed as long as Ross," he said.
You want true blue? Vibe reports the All I Do is Win hitmaker told Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex that he would bet a cool $100,000 that the newly LeBron James-less Heat would close out the season with a better record than King James' team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. But TMZ reports that it was all a big joke.
Not that Ross, who turns 39 on Jan. 28, can't afford it if he loses. According to the website Celebrity Net Worth, he has about $35 million, give or take a few bucks, in his bank account.
It's good to be the boss.
CATCH & RELEASE
Dwayne Johnson loves the Florida life, which often involves getting out there on a boat to find your supper. The Rock posted a pic for his 6.3 million Instagram followers of him and a buddy on the high seas holding a huge fish upright, the hook still in its mouth. The caption: “On very light tackle it took me an hour to bring this 200lb beauty in. Took me another 15 minutes to gently revive him in the water before we released him.” The hashtags: #UsFloridaCountryBoys #GettinItDone #AllDay #EveryDay #TarponToldMeToF***OffAsHeSwamAway.
