Rick Ross Calls Africa a ‘Country’ on Twitter

Rick Ross decided to take a trip to Africa this week. Much like most of his travels, he documented his arrival on social media. It offered the MMG head honcho an opportunity to plug Wale’s new album, The Gifted, which drops tomorrow. The point of the Tweet was obvious: people in Africa and around the world are very excited to hear Wale’s new album.

Regrettably, Ross decided to call Africa a “country,” and it has gotten everyone talking. And laughing. Why would Rick Ross confuse a continent for a country? Maybe he was eating lemon pepper wings as he was tweeting and couldn’t correct the typo. Maybe he had Gunplay tweeting for him. Maybe he’s simply too “bawse” to care about any of it. Either way, the self-proclaimed “Mastermind” is looking pretty foolish right now. The best part of it all is that Wale happens to be from Nigeria. That’s a country within the continent of Africa, Rozay. And you ain’t even know it.
