Rick Ross - Rick Ross, Slowly Working to Offend the Entire World.

Rick Ross is slowly but steadily working his way around the globe, evidently aiming to offend and irritate as many people as possible. Ross has had 'beef' with 50 Cent, Young Jeezy, “Freeway” Ricky Ross and now the world's entire Jewish community, particularly one of it's converts, fellow rapper Shyne.

Rick Ross is releasing a mixtape entitled 'The Black Bar Mitzvah' which continues the vaguely religious theme set out in 'God Forgives, I Don't', his album released in July of this year. Shyne, who converted to Judaism while in prison on an attempted murder charge, paying homage to his great grandmother who was also Jewish, spoke out against the tactless title of Ross's EP. He spoke to MTV News saying: "I ain't mad. It's just, I think he's corny. ... I have no respect for what he represents, for who he is, let's just start with that”. He continued: “you're on me, you're obsessed with everything Shyne. All of a sudden, you running with the Star of David and dudes is Jewish now all of a sudden?"

The cover of the mixtape shows Ross wearing fur, emblazoned in the gold of a Star of David. Though perhaps paying tribute to Jay-Z's reference to the phrase 'black Bar Mitzvah' in one of his songs, the choice by Ross is almost as bizarre as 'Teflon Don'. Much of Shyne's criticism of Rick Ross stemmed from the revelation that Ross, real name William Leonard Roberts II, worked as a correctional officer in the early '90s, a career that very few members of the hip-hop community accepts or respects.

2012 has certainly been an interesting year for Rick Ross, winning Hottest MC in the Game by BET yet ending up in a brawl with Young Jeezy at this year's BET Awards, his record label Mayback Music Group going from strength to strength in distinct contrast to criticism from fellow rapper Shyne. Here's hoping lucky number '13 will be filled with greater luck for the Floridian rapper.
