“Chris Rock, he a cornball. Let’s keep it real,” he said. “I ain’t even finna kick it with y’all like that. Chris Rock a cornball. And I’mma leave it right there. It wasn’t funny. He ain’t the one. I’m not a fan of his.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Ross talked about his new deal with Epic Records and his work with Adrien Broner.
“I just closed my new situation with Epic Records,” he said. “I’m doing big things over there at Epic Records. Me and Broner, we just sat down and we doing some big things. I wanna make sure that this year, people will get to see that other side of AB.
