GQ’s article on Rick Ross’ Simple Lessons for Bosses, Dons, and Bitches

GQ recently released its October issue and it features a write-up on Hip Hops favorite rapper now, Rick Ross.

It only occurs to me after midnight that it might be past 8 P.M. Normally, due to domestic circumstances, I’m asleep by ten. But it doesn’t feel late. Rick Ross lives in his own personal time zone, and when you’re around him, you’re subject to it….
Ross couldn’t be more different. He very much appreciates having a pool table with his crest on it and girls who want to have sex with him without asking to be his girlfriend.
