Miami is known for many things, Miami Beach, the Heat basketball team, and various other things that make the southern city an attraction. Another well-known attraction, rapper, and entrepreneur Rick Ross, represents the town well and in a recent podcast, expresses a desire to own an NBA franchise, the Miami Heat.
The conversation took place on “The OGs Podcast” hosted by two former Heat players, Udonis Haslem, and Mike Miller. In the episode that was released earlier this week on Tuesday, Jan. 10, the “God Forgives, I Don’t” rapper tells the former teammates that he would love to be in the position of owning the team since that’s his city.
Haslem questioned Ross on his dream to be the owner of the Heat franchise. “Big homie what’s going on with the Heat? I know you got the money now,” Haslem asked the rapper. “When you gonna make that play?”
The man who also uses the moniker Rick Rozay immediately responds, “Oh, you already know I’m gonna keep it real now. I need y’all to walk me in there. Come on, we gotta get us a piece of that Miami Heat. One time for La Spoelstra Nostra.” (The head coach for the Miami Heat is Erik Spoelstra who just signed an 8-year, $120 million contract to remain the coach)
Ross tells Haslem and Miller that his owning the team would “be for the city.”
“Hey, big homie, that’s a dream; that’s a dream for Rozay, you know, just to see, you know, the city because it wouldn’t just be for me. It’ll be for the city.”
“You know somebody from the city; a part of the city come up and earn that, you know what I mean,” Ross said.

Hometown pride has always been something that Rozay has displayed ever since we found out that every day he’s “Hustlin.”
