This has both been a sexy month for musical folks on magazine covers. With Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Lana del Rey, and Miley Cyrus all looking their cutest on the September issue covers, Rolling Stone likely felt the pressure to produce a busty babe of its own. Enter, Rick Ross. It's been more than a grand year for the Bawse. His album God Forgives, I Don't hit number one on iTunes and Billboard charts in its first week, and, well, he got to meet me in a homemade Rick Ross beard

Ross, soon to be known only as Sir "Gangster of Love," appears bare-chested and making the hang ten sign on the cover of Rolling Stone, which

was shot by Terry Richardson, of course. The article sort of outlines

how he's not exactly a gangster but worked as a corrections officer and

went to a Christian school, but whatever. These are tiny details hidden

in a haze of pot smoke. 

What follows is a video featuring clips from Ross' shoot with Richardson. This little video is titled "Dazed and Confused" for no obvious reason other than the song playing. Tell us if you can figure out why in the comments section.

And now, check out the video where Rick Ross (or some version of the Bawse) meets Rick Ross.
