Rick Ross is seated at the roundtable with his plate of sea bass, eating right, but, his plates weren’t always worthy of a #FoodPorn hashtag on Instagram. Ross explains to Bon Appetit why he kicks so many bars about “eating good.”
Your lyrics have lots of food references.
RR: I remember when I couldn’t afford to eat like this. It was ramen noodles and the San Francisco Treat [Rice-A-Roni]. Dessert? Get you a honey bun and put a slice of cheese on it. Put it in the microwave for 45 seconds and you had the gift of a lifetime.
The common denominator seems to be cheese.
I ain’t gonna lie: I love that cheese.
You’ve rapped about “waking up to a bowl of lobster bisque.” Is that a typical breakfast?
There’s a steakhouse in Miami called Prime One Twelve. I order three entrées that I know I’m not gonna finish, and save the lobster bisque for the following morning.
