As Trump era ends, Rick Ross on path to Obama WH, MSNBC quotes and Jay-Z link | MSNBC Dig. Excl.


Donald Trump went from one of the most cited names in hip hop to one of its most reviled figures. Rapper Rick Ross rose from the streets of Miami to meeting with Pres. Obama in the Oval Office, and he reflects on that path - and moving beyond his past Trump references - in two interviews with MSNBC's Ari Melber. In this second interview, a digital exclusive, the two discuss more of Ross's music; their favorite "energetic" Ross songs; why Ross sees lyrics as modern literature; his work with Swizz Beats and Jay-Z; his new nickname "Ravioli," and how he feels about being quoted on the news. Ross also tells Melber, "I appreciate you being who you are -- you are a true boss; you got that certification from Ravioli."
