Rick Ross recently addressed how he handles negative attention courtesy of online bloggers and said the "hate" spread his way is just a sign of their frustration.
According to Ross, bloggers taking the time to focus on his life is also a sign of his relevance.
"I love it, I'm an eight-figure dude," Ross said with confidence in an interview. "If you got the opportunity to meet me, I'm pretty sure you'd be humble. So if you online, typing on the computer crazy because I know what it's like to not eat filet mignon. I know what it's like to eat Romaine Noodles, I know what it's like to eat Cap'n Crunch for breakfast, lunch, a snack and dinner, I had nothing positive to say about no n*gga. Ain't nothing was positive. How I'ma have love and I wasn't eatin' right? So half the time when you look at the online, the world is in shambles and you feel that. And a lot of the times when I see something that's negative or that's baseless, I just know that's frustration from somebody that's not being where they're supposed to be at. Hopefully I can inspire them, you understand -- I think if them motherf*ckers went online, seen my face and didn't type something, that's when I'ma get p*ssed off and f*ck up the bloggers...Every time you type something, it's really a plus....Thank-you, and really, the joke's on somebody else but we ain't gonna laugh in front of y'all."

Juelz Santana previously discussed the problems with some aspects of technology including Internet bloggers.
"I think the Internet is a plus and a minus," he said in an interview. "For one, it's the best promotion though in the world, especially when you don't have an album out at the time it's a beautiful way of promotion, you know what I'm saying? And it's free promotion at that. I don't really entertain the bloggers or the comments and stuff like that. Anybody that has time to sit and type at they computer might be gay to me. I mean just typing a comment. You could be typing and talking to somebody, but typing a comment on something that you see is kind of crazy to me." (BET Sound Off)
Former Source Magazine owner Benzino talked with SOHH last year about his issues with the online world.
"The Internet is something that nobody knows who anybody is," he argued. "People that answer blogs [and] people that comment, I mean, nobody really knows who these people are. Everybody can have an opinion, but if you have an opinion, stand by it. Put your face out there. Let it be known who you are." (SOHH)
Busta Rhymes also shared a similar opinion during an interview earlier this year.
"If me and a n*gga in the same room, right, we in the hotel, we on the road," Busta explained. "I'm next door to a n*gga and we got the door that connects the rooms, so he ain't gotta go in the hallway to holla at me, knock on the door...Instead of doing that, n*gga textin' me, who in the room with 'em. N*gga textin' me. Nobody in the room with him. The computer has made n*ggas lazy. The computer has made n*ggas interact less. It's dehumanizing people, homie. It's dehumanizing you, that's all I'm saying. Because now when that same n*gga send me a text and I misinterpret what I'm reading because I can't feel what his real intent was, now I respond f*cked up." (Flipmode TV)
