“745 white on white, that’s f#ckin’ Ross…”

A journalist yelled out to the big fella, as he silently made his way across the gaudy Skullcandy x NBA All-Star red carpet. With an acknowledging nod, Rozay braced himself for the impending stampede of exploding flash bulbs, cotton-mouthing interviews, and an onslaught of groupies quickly engulfing his enormous frame.

For that matter, no amount of security or rope could prevent the members of the media from mercilessly surrounding anyone who was rocking hanging diamonds or stood over six feet tall. But they all took it in stride, with the likes of Wale, Andre Iguodala, and Kevin Durant readily accepting interview and photo requests for the better part of a half an hour.

Once Skullcandy’s CEO himself presented them with their own customized sets of headphones, the party shifted to the stage where Wale and Ricky proceeded to tear down the house. In between wiping his perspiring face with a wagon-full of towels, Rick Ross had his shining moments (no pun intended), but particularly, it was not his, but rather the D.C. emcee’s stage presence that was so captivating as he flawlessly performing an equally strong arsenal of both new and old songs. It took mere seconds before the crowd enthusiastically returned the energy, uniformly waving their hands, each person converted into devotees one by one.

Big thanks to Cashmere Agency!
