Rick Ross recently shared his thoughts on fashion and expressed his desire to possibly venture out with his own clothing lines for larger men.
The Miami rapper also revealed the clothing lines he has helped inspire.
"I would just love to target a big and tall audience," Ross said in an interview. "A lot of times, big dudes can't walk in these stores and get these sizes of the fly sh*t. So I'd love to put something together just for the big guys. I've endorsed one or two fashion lines before for some little dudes in Miami, just showing them love. Luxury Tax, I actually gave [that] name to one of my homeboys from Haiti and helped him out with that. And another one called Foreign Lavish. You never know what the future holds." (Rap-Up)
DJ Smallz recently previewed the Boss' co-signed line, Luxury Tax.
"I know you probably seen the ads," he said in a video clip. "Luxury Tax, Rick Ross new clothing line. Well I just wanted to show you a couple pieces real quick. Luxury Tax sh*t. This sh*t is for ballers only. Different colors, you feel me? Wanna make sure you cop that, make sure you go to DeeperThanRap.com. Get all the Luxury clothing and Rick Ross' album, it's coming real soon." (Smallz TV)
Ross has also expressed his interest in working with the recently released ex-drug kingpin Freeway Ricky Ross.
"I mean most definitely," Ross said regarding a possible business relationship. "You know I'm a business man so any business we could do, you know, it is most definitely something I look forward to doing. I mean a dude that just did a little time he could really reflect on different things, I don't know what kinda business ventures he know but me, we in to films and different things like that. You'll never know what a man is up to. Of course not , [I haven't met him.] But you know I been in the game a few years, shout-out to him, he's doing his thing. Do we have any business together? No we don't, but you know, we both hustlers. So I wish him the best, so you know, that's what I say on that." (Jenny Boom Boom)
