Rick Ross will be a first time award show host for this year’s MTV Woodie Awards. Jack of all trades?


Rick Ross tells Billboard:

“The Woodies have always been cool, I performed at the Woodies with the Clipse [in 2009] and I’ve been back a few times. But my new album Rather You Than Me will be up in stores on the 17th, so it just felt right to mesh all the dope concerts, a lot of dope artists and really just the culture. The fans that make the world go ’round at the Woodies, so I felt like that’s what we should touch.”

Rozay goes on to say he isn’t nervous being a first time award show host:

“To me, that’s what’s gonna make it dope, the fact that I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing … I’m gonna go out there fly as a motherfucker and it’s gonna be boss. You know me, I just go off the energy, I’m gonna do a wonderful job. I could be a funny motherfucker off the rip just by myself, so I can imagine me gettin’ in the crowd — I’m gonna have a lot of shit I can talk about. But to me, it’s just all about the music and the crowd and the fans. I’m gonna interact with the crowd, so that’s what it’s gonna be about with me.”
