Rapper Rick Ross Weighs In on Anthony WeinerS

If there's one thing that's been missing from the exhaustive coverage of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, it's the opinion of rapper Rick Ross. Now, thanks to the pioneering journalism of GQ's Devin Friedman (who spent a day and night hanging out with Ross), we've got it:

He likes to visit the Louis Vuitton store at the Lenox mall when he is in town and has some downtime, and this afternoon, as we drove there, the topic of former congressman Anthony Weiner came up. Ross had never heard of him. He became curious as he learned the story. Some passages from a leaked Facebook chat were quoted.

"How the fuck that shit get out?" he wanted to know. He was told that Weiner tweeted a picture of his dick to someone.

"Chicks send me pictures," Ross said. "And I appreciate it! I love all of them. But I don't do that shit. I'm the Boss." He shook his head, his expression hidden behind his candy-apple-red-framed aviator sunglasses. "Real niggas don't send dick flicks."

We don't want to insult your intelligence by trying to pretend that Ross' analysis is at all sensical, or substantial, or relevant. Which puts him at about the same level as most political commentators! Let's get the guy an MSNBC show. Bosstalk with Rick Ross.
