It’s official—Rick Ross is the biggest Miami Heat fan in the franchise’s history. When the hip-hop superstar walked into New Jersey’s Unroyal Ink and had the basketball team’s logo tattooed onto his face he cemented his stance as the Heat’s biggest fan.
Clearly Da Boss wasn’t fazed by LeBron James taking his talents to northern Ohio over the summer as he chose to rep his team loudly and proudly on his mug. The small logo next to his right eye tattooed by Ian Griffith is far from the only tattoo on the rapper’s famous face. Both of his eyes are now flanked by small logos including one for fellow rapper Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers and one for Ross’ imprint label the Maybach Music Group logo.
In May of last year Ross visited Nikko Hurtado to have a tattoo done right in the middle of his trademark beard. The hirsute superstar must now keep his beard neat and trim in to show off the “Rich Forever” script on his chin.
We have to hand it to Ross for going all in with the Heat tattoo, especially at a time when so many of their fans have jumped ship. For his sake, we hope the team isn’t looking into a relocation or logo redesign any time soon.
