Rick Ross got into a physical altercation with Drake supporters after a performance in Vancouver…but the rapper doesn’t believe he was punched despite the footage circulating online.

I’m thinking about the event that happened over there. When the first dude stepped up to Rozay, the lil’ short fat one that looked like Bam Bam Bigelow from wrestling. When he stepped up, I squatted down and his eyes had told him what I said,” he said in the clip below.

He continued, “Basically, ‘Boy, if I hit you, I’m a see everything you ate for the last two days.’ His balls dropped out of his ass. He never said another word, he did never did nothing. He was a straight busta. Then the n-gga behind him said, ‘I know MMA!’ And then I got hit with a drink. I’m still convinced ain’t no n-gga punched me. Somebody said, ‘Rozay, the n-gga tried to punch you, he hit you!'”

Rick Ross is an influential figure in modern hip hop music, Rick Ross has become known for his “booming” vocal performance, “larger than life” persona, and vivid lyrical imagery. His lyrics form the hardships of street life and black market economic activity into a rags to riches narrative, often describing affluence, wealth, and luxury.

Before releasing his debut single, “Hustlin'” in March 2006, Ross was the subject of a bidding war—receiving offers from Diddy’s Bad Boy Entertainment and Irv Gotti’s Murder Inc.—and ultimately signed a multimillion-dollar deal with Jay-Z on Def Jam Recordings.

In August of that year, his debut studio album, Port of Miami (2006) peaked atop the Billboard 200 chart upon release, along with his second and third studio albums, Trilla (2008) and Deeper Than Rap (2009).
His fourth album, Teflon Don (2010), spawned the single “Aston Martin Music” (featuring Drake and Chrisette Michele)—which received triple platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)—while his fifth and sixth albums, God Forgives, I Don’t (2012) and Mastermind (2014) peaked the Billboard 200 twice more.
