As I’m sure most of you know, Rick Ross caused quite a stir while he was in Chicago last week during his promo run for his new album, Teflon Don, which drops tomorrow (July 20th) on Def Jam Recordings. The main reason being his recent hit song – “B.M.F.” – which features a very powerful Chicago name in the chorus…that name being Larry Hoover.
A lot of Chicagoans were confused by said line, and we at FSD felt obligated to ask Ross about his “I think I’m Larry Hoover” claim during the interview held at Dave Jeff’s PHLI store in Hyde Park. Ross handled himself pretty well and kept his cool, but you can tell he’s a bit agitated with a few of our questions. So much in fact that after only three/four questions, he dropped the obligatory “my album is in stores July 20th” and walked off the set in a huff. Treated, indeed.
Ross left PHLI just moments later, and rumors immediately began to swirl claiming that there was plenty tension in the air. These rumors were shot down just hours later when Rick Ross tweeted a picture of himself, E from Infared Music and Larry Hoover Jr. at his release party at Vibe. Is this the end or only the beginning? We don’t know, but you should definitely tune in to see his interview with Ms. Laura Mitchell.

Who gives a fuck about this fat ass nigga?? Why is this news!?
‘Where the drugs at?’
Not a fan and shit like this makes me less of one. He acted like a little broad walking off like that. She just asked if there was anyone here at crib that he would work with and he got mad ? Fuck this dude
She’s a great bartender but not a good interviewer!! She was mad nervous and uncomfortable. Scrap her Drew.. and Camera man had her on a bad angle.. need to nab @bacardiru for next one
She was a bit nervous but I think Officer Ricky was even more nervous
It actually seems like Ricky isn’t too familiar with any other Chicago artists besides ‘Ye..
I would imagine that’s the case. I don’t think he knew any….
She didn’t challenge him at all. Those were all fair questions and she didn’t push him on the answers. Her nervousness was not an issue. She spoke clearly, quickly and cleanly.
Besides, it’s not like he wouldn’t be used to dealing with nervous people!
Hard to know what’s up when an interview is taken out of the context of an artist’s day, especially when they have so many people trying to get at them.
On the other hand, Ross clearly dropped the ball on building support in Chicago. Regarding other Chicago artists, he could have turned it around and said something like, “that a good question. Who would you suggest?”
Of course, he’s got people after him out for blood all the time, video bloggers hoping to catch some nonsense and folks who go into a Twitter frenzy over a few sentences. So maybe he misinterpreted what she was up to given the f*cking absurd circumstances under which hip hop stars operate.
Co-sign with TY and Andrew.
I’m just boggled as to why this pig from outta state is getting air time on a Chicago blogsite? Then I see people complain about artists from Chicago not getting the props they deserve. Shame on you FSD
i think the interview questions were great, and pretty much what the chicago consumers wanna kno about.. i agree she was a lil nervous but not so much that it ruined the interview.. i just think ross handled it badly.. yes he plugged his record, but did he make anybody who wasnt gonna get the cd already, wanna get it?? Million Dollar Question
wow that was rude as hell! he could of handled that better …..but then again thats a boss move lames wouldnt understand
@Drkr[img] this interview is on her because this fuck boy was in chicago and did that interview with a blog from chicago dumbass!!
@Landlord..That’s not a boss move. That’s the move of a correctional officer. You must be a snitch & a lame if you justifying that.
wow, the end of the interview was bogus as hell.
lol he’s wack
You Larry Hoover and can walk on the south side talkin’ that shit? Chicago I am ashamed… there was a time when someone like Master P was banned from coming to Chicago for suggesting such affiliation without representation. I bet this nigga paid to get that picture with Larry Hoover Jr. That interview showed how lame that nigga is! He probably had about 30 security guards on deck, scary ass nigga. Chicago… I am ashamed… remember when we used to let people know where they was at? This nigga Ross probably feel he run the Chi now and we aint about shit- we accomodated his boss image instead of showin’ him where that shit come from. You see he didn’t go out west… woulda straight checked his ass…
Chiefj4 , you said it best !
I’d love to know more about this Master P ban, Chief J4, if you’d care to elaborate. Sounds interesting…
Ricky is going in for the teflon don album
No…He got co-signed by E from InfaRed that spent his life at war with Gangsta’s (he is a 4 corner hustler from Englewood)!…He (Rick Ross) didnt even know who Larry Hoover jr was (who coincidentally looks identical to his father!)….Its dickriding ass fuckboys like E who make Chicago look lame and weak. Fuck Rick Ross fat ass…why is he even mentioned on this site??…..E doesnt co-sign shit for the Gangsta’s…He knows that!..The “real”: G’s know that !!! Start an offshoot site about things that happen in Chicago then!…Keep it off the site for Chicago Artists or you are part of the problem as well!!!!
just my thoughts (that represents 1,000’s)
Just my thoughts
I suoppse planks are my favorite – mainly because you don’t need any equipment and can feel the burn! I am working to improve my form on the side planks… those are hard for me! I just RSVP’ed for the #ffcheer brunch after the 10K event on the 17th! I look forward to meeting you there!
THE REAL FACT IS THAT CHICAGO LET HIM RIDE WITH DAT LIKE HE JUST BOSSED HIS WAY THROUGH OUR CITY.. WE USE TO BE GANGSTA WE LET OUTA TOWNERS DO ANYTHING I SEE WE LOSSING OUR G CARD TO BE GROUPIES THAT SHIT WOULDVE HAPPENED IN THE 90TYS
RICK ROSS RUN CHICAGO ….LMAO AND HE KNOW WHO CAP ONE IS DID YOU SEE HIM SMERK ALL CHICAGO ARTIST NEED TO STAND UP AND STOP LETTIN THESE CATS GET MONEY IN OUR CITY… THEY DO NOT PLAY NONE OF OUR MUSIC IN THE SOUTH SO WHY DO WE.. WHERE THE REAL Gs AT BIG NASTEE SLY P GET AT THIS NIGGA T.M.C FREE BUMP G.L.C MIKKEY HALSTED
CHICAGO WE NEED TO STAND UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AND I MEAN 4 REAL
THAT RICK ROSS INTERVIEW GOT US LOOKIN BAD LIKE “WHO RUN IT”
This is a complete disgrace. I can’t believe FSD, chicago’s biggest, most viewed website, takes the time to interview ex CO fake ass rappers like this fat ass, but doesn’t have 1 interview with Chicago legends like do or die, da smart, or any of the niggas that gave chicago a foundation for rap music. Instead they give air time to snitches that clown us. We will never learn. Complete disgrace.
REAL TALK SHE WAS ASKING SOME FD UP QUESTIONS…. I WOULDN’T ACT RIGHT NEITHER… “KANYE NORMALLY DOESN’T JUST WORK WITH ANYONE”… WOOOOOOW ………. HE’S A GRAMMY WINNER, MUILTI PLATINUM SELLER … Y WOULDN’T KANYE WORK WITH HIM… BOOOOOO AT THE QUESTIONS… THAT’S RICK ROSS STUPID…. ANDREW!!!!!!!!!! PICK BETTER QUESTIONS MY G OR GET ANOTHER INTERVIEWER
When Rick walked off homegirl stood there looking like Taylor Swift at the MTV Awards.
C’mon this is disgusting. I got in a dude I know car yesterday and he played the intro to this guys album. First line was some bullshit about him pullin up to the club with a kilo in the car.
At that point right there I had had enough. Almost jumped out a moving whip. Walked to the store myself.
This fat fuck need his head stomped in and E should be ashamed of himself for exploiting lil Larry misguided timid ass like that.
Best… interview… EVER!
It’s entertainment. Is Ross really gangsta’? I doubt it but it sells records. I just wish they would let these kids know that when they make these songs that they were made in plush comfy studios and NOT the block. I also would like rappers or whatever they call themselves these days to really explain to the youth that after the cameras go off and the cars are returned and as well as models that they go home to their families. I’m not sure if they know but their listeners are so impressionable and listen to 4 to 5 verses smoke out and harm someone. In my eyes from what I saw….well…I’ll just keep that to myself however there were children there and I just wished he would have given them their moment. They really like that guy.
Andrew… back when Master P and No Limit were at their height, Master P was scheduled to do a show in Chicago, instead of doing the show he cancelled his flight and cancelled his show. Word on the street was that the GD’s had a price on his head and it got back to P and his camp. He was talking all that gangsta shit on record but when it really came down to it he knew there were certain places he had to own up to that talk… he decided not to pull it here. I have no website articles about this, but if you know, you know. That is just one example, we all know about the issues with the Dayton Family and several other rappers who lost their credibility after coming here or gettin’ their ass whopped! There was a time that anytime someone would speak of the Chi it would have to come from praise and honor or they were not allowd here. Look at Cam’Ron, you would think he from Chicago… nothing but Love and humble… he don’t be on that New York arrogant shit when he get here, Wu-Tang, Bun B, Scarface, Snoop, and even Game– nothing but respect and humble when there get here, cause they know their life is in OUR hands… for a minute Jo Jo Capone was the watchdog for fake rapper niggas in the industry and Chicago but I aint seen dude in a while. Get the facts on banned rappers in Chicago, Even 3-6 Mafia, there were well into their career until their First concert in Chicago, Bone Thugs N Harmony was cautious to come here around that Twista and Crucial Conflict Beef….. Do your research… the streets was at these Niggas and they did not fuck with Chicago… and look at us now, How the fuck we let Ross come here and disrespect the site, the city, and Hoover… and I grew up around 4’s…. this shit wild!

Back in the days we used bang these fake rappers heads, now days we suck their dicks & buy their fake shit. Thanks to fake hip hop outlets here. Like FSD
@ChiefJ4- You got a point, which is very much true. Chicago is really losing their edge, and credibilty because these niggas think they can come here, and say and do what the fuck they want which is sad because they do. These outta state rappers use to be terrifed to come to Chicago with all that so called gangsta shit. Jim jones was scared to come out of secrets nightclub some years ago cuz Jo Jo Capone was on his ass. Also when Camron came out with his drink sizzurp they came to chicago and put they drink in the liquor store on 69th and Western that nigga had to go through Images barber shop to leave because that nigga was scared thats why he start fucking with Bang tuff. All these outta state rappers and other states shit on us man by not playing our music and then they come here and get praised. Niggaz don ‘t show chicago no respect anymore like they use to Niggaz must of forgot when Ross thrashed a Fellow Chicagoan at the Preimere and niggas that was from chicago helped that nigga. Let’s not get it confused like we on some straight G shit but its all out of respect, and we need to get back to demading that shit and stop following these other states, they want to be like chicago….. that nigga Raekwon show mad love when he comes to Chicago all the time he don’t ever try and play us. I wanna say a few years ago Lil Wayne suppose to do a show here and he bagged out even though he was here and niggaz got word on where he was staying at and they checked his ass told him you not leaving out this room until you give us our $20,000. I mean it has nothing to do with our city being tuff but niggaz is really trying to shit on us and majority of that comes from us shitting on each other……If chicago niggas stood strong and had a movement we couldn’t be stopped at all everybody will be riding our coattail far as music goes….but letting these niggas come to our city, having parties, events going down in our local fashion stores shit gotta stop but it will only stop if we do something about it COLLECTIVLEY. All the rappers CheifJ4 named show nothing but respect man and honor our city because they know…..Raekwon man was Chinaman any nigga from chicago should know him so im just saying. I just hope niggas reading these comments and take heed to this shit and I’m not talkin bout getting at a nigga but make these show us some respect let’s mob up and go to their cities and do the same shit.
ALL THIS TALK ABOUT PAST AND PRESENT TOUGHNESS YET U COMPLAIN ABOUT NOT HAVING AN INDUSTRY AND WHY THE ARTISTS DONT GET SIGNED. I MEAN, HAVE U NOT REALIZED WHY THE CITY HAS BEEN SHUT OUT OF THE INDUSTRY. THEY FEEL THAT THE STREET LIFE PREVENTS THE OVERALL GOAL , TO MAKE MONEY SELL ENTERTAINMENT. NOW FOR THE ALL THE G CHECKING, ALL THE NEGAVTIVE CONNOTATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH CHICAGO, WHY CANT WE MOVE FORWARD. WHY IS IT ALWAYS SHOW OUR GANGSTA OR KEEP THE IMAGE GOING. WHEN ARE WE GOING TO MAKE STRIDES TOWARDS MAKING DIFFERENCE. ROSS CAME TO TOWN TO WHICH HE WAS BROUGHT IN BY CHICAGO PROMOTERS WHILE ON PROMO TOUR. GET IT TOGETHER CHICAGO. THATS WHY WE DONT HAVE SHIT NOW. AND YALL TAKE HONOR IN SHOWING HOW GANGSTA BUT THIS CITY HAS TAKEN A MEDIA HIT FOR THE PROBLEMS THAT WE ARE GOING THRU. 4 COPS KILLED, DERRION ALBERT, WEEKENDS OF 30-40 BEING SHOT CONSECUTIVELY, ITS JUST ONE SHITTY LOOK AFTER ANOTHER.

Its GD’s all over the fuckin country!!!! Damn i wish the projects was still standing cuz this pussy ass nigga would’ve thought twice about mentioning that man name, real talk
All u niggas do is sit and complain talking bout what would’ve happen.”He can’t say Larry Hoover and come to the Chi?!!?” Well he did and niggas honored him for it!!. niggaz here spend weekends shooting other niggas from here over nothing, but when Ross come to the town, its a we love Ross fest!!
He mentions Big Meech name and at least Jeezy saidSOMETHING with the Real Big Meech on the line…Ross flicked it up with E and Larry Jr(really??) i betcha none of Big Meech peoples is going for that shit..let’s just come to terms with the fact that other artists come and use the city for its rep then bounce! While Ross sales copy after copy, niggas here actually get broker!! It’s easy to sit and talk about this shit after the fact, but the city looked liked a big cocksucker!! And Ross knew it…just like we know it!!!

Larry Hoover is in Chicago history from this city and U tellin me u sayin Chiefs names and u aint from the chi for 1 and for2 thats was some lame ass bitch shit 2 make the chorus about larry and meech anyway! u have never known, and never will know these niggaz!
