Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross has once again come forward to address his publicized Wal-Mart Black Market ban.
Footage of Ricky Rozay allegedly laughing off the ban has surfaced.
“They say they banned us at Wal-Mart but they don’t know I live across the street from the n*gga who own Target, n*gga. [laughs]”
Ricky alerted fans about his album still being available on digital retailer iTunes amid endless Wal-Mart reports Sunday (December 20).
Buzz about Wal-Mart banning Ross’ album emerged online a few days ago.
The circumstance was apparently brought to Walmart’s attention by a journalist named Mark Dice. Within the writer/media analyst’s video detailing his message to the multi-billion dollar company, Dice said Rozay’s line off the title track, which reads, “Assassinate Trump like I’m Zimmerman/ Now accept these words as they came from Eminem,” didn’t sit well with him and claims it incites terroristic threats.

Ross’ recently released album landed in the Top 10 last week.
Back on the new Billboard 200, Rick Ross’ Black Market bows at No. 6 with 65,000 units (54,000 in album sales). His previous set, 2014’s Hood Billionaire, bowed at No. 2 with 74,000 sold. (Note: Black Market’s debut unit figure, and sales figure, were updated at 4:30 pm ET on Dec. 13.) (Billboard)
