Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross had some explaining to do when his court-issued monitoring ankle bracelet went off during a meeting with President Barack Obama last week.
According to reports, Ricky Rozay’s monitoring device went off while President Obama addressed him and other notable hip-hop artists for his Brother’s Keeper youth program.
It was a serious and fancy affair … enough to get Ross in a suit, which covered the ankle monitor he has to wear … a condition of release in his kidnapping case. Sources on scene tell TMZ Obama finished his speech when Ross’ anklet ripped through the silence. We’re told Ross was even surprised … the anklet’s new and it randomly beeps. (TMZ)
Along with Yung Renzel, hip-hop stars DJ Khaled and Pusha T also met with the head of state.
