Hip-hop artist Rick Ross headlined DAYLIGHT Beach Club’s ECLIPSE pool party at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in celebration of the pre-release of his upcoming album, “Port of Miami 2” on Thursday, August 1. DJ Sam Sneak shouted out the “Hustlin” rapper as he entered the stage during “Gold Roses” grabbing the mic and welcomed partygoers. He performed “Trap Trap Trap,” “Purple Lamborghini,” “Big Tyme” and teased partygoers with snippets from his upcoming album slated to drop on Friday, August 9th!
During their conversation about the upcoming music, Rozay touched on his relationship with the late Nipsey Hussle, and just exactly what he meant to the LA community and the industry.
“I couldn’t fathom it and I’ve been a fan of his since, I want to say ’09,” he said. “I knew he had a purpose and I knew he understood he had a purpose, and I knew he understood he was in position to speak for a lot of people that couldn’t speak for themselves. And me looking for an artist, that’s one of the first things I look for.”
From his outreach his continuous efforts to better the community, Nipsey was more than an artist. “And just to know Nipsey’s vision and to see what he was doing,” he said. “In those conversations we always had him being an entrepreneur, him being a father, him being a leader, you know what I’m saying? He understood his position, and so we got to make sure we continue to celebrate homie purpose.”
