American rapper, entrepreneur, and film producer Rick Ross has promised to include Kenyan artist in the list of Africans he hopes to work with.
This is after the 48-year-old 'Aston Martin Music' crooner was harshly called out by Kenyan social commentator Cassypool.
Through his socials Rozay has promised to not only visit Kenya but also to network as he selects favourable artists to work with in his 2024 music album.
He handled the matter with class promising Kenyans to be calm as he had room for them.
"Big talk no small talk boy. Kenya home of Legends. See you soon," wrote the music producer in response to Cassypool's rant.
Rick Ross had earlier on announced his plans to work with select African artists for his upcoming album. In his list Ross listed some notable artists such as Ghanian singer/songwriter Stoneboy, Tanzanian Diamond Platnumz and Nigeria's Asake and Yemi Alade all whom he noted how eager he was looking forward to working with them.
The Mayback Music CEO added that the collaborations would be part of his upcoming album which will have a total of 12 songs featuring collaborations with artistes from 12 different African countries.
His statements did not sit well with Cassypool who went on a rant calling out the Florida rapper for snubbing Kenya.
In his angry rant the social media influencer questioned selection criteria Rozay had used to arrive at the artists that he had selected noting Kenya had so much more to offer.
"I want to tell Rick Ross...Kenya has produced international artistes starting from our one and only Khaligraph Jones, the best rapper. You cannot compare Khaligraph Jones with any rapper within East Africa and out of East Africa or Africa at large," Cassypool said heatedly.
He went on to add;
"You go pick a village boy from Tandale another village boy from Makonde and you tell us you have picked artistes...This is the country that has produced the first black American president you must respect Kenya. This is the country that has produced the best athletes,"
