Fact: Rick Ross is a jet setter, a 300-plus pound globetrotting A-lister with more stamps in his passport than the Secretary of State.
Naturally, Ross is kicking it with all the other A-listers on the French Riviera this week for the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival. And last night, the Maybach Music boss performed some of his hits for the crowd at Gotha Club.
Rap-Up posted a user-submitted YouTube video of the Bawse performing "Stay Schemin'" on stage while Sean "P. Diddy" Combs provided backup from the VIP section.
Check out the video and an extremely detailed breakdown of the video after the cut.
The "shoddy" iPhone video makes it difficult to decipher what's going on. But that massive creature on the stage is unmistakably Rick Ross. We're not sure who's with him. However, we're 100-percent certain that Diddy's about to make an appearance.
Told you! That's P. Diddy, clearly not giving a fuck about the French furniture he's stepping all over while belting out the lyrics to "Stay Schemin'."
This is a brand new dance called "The Truck Driver." Basically, you mimic a truck driver pulling the foghorn. Honk-honk, bitches.
It's a rare sight, but that's Rick Ross sans sunglasses. Dude looks wicked evil.
This is a test to see if Diddy knows the lyrics to the track. He does OK until around the 37-second mark. He played it off real well, though.
Ross is mad focused on Diddy while singing.
Diddy's still playing along, but he wants to get back to his table.
Hey, Diddy, where are you going? Song's not over, pimp.
"Stay Schemin'..." That's right, Puff, keep singing.
