Rick Ross, DJ Khaled Win $120,000 Free-Throw Contest

"We the Miami Heat of hip-hop."

Now, obviously, when Rick Ross uttered that boast, it was meant as more than just a Bawse-ly metaphor.

Because big homie and his buddy DJ Khaled got such skills from the stripe, they recently won $120,000 in a free-throw contest.

Last week, the MMG honcho spent a few days hustling 'round Atlanta.

He was actually in town for the BET Hip-Hop Awards. But, duh, he's also got a mansion in the ATL. So he, DJ Khaled, French Montana, Meek Mill, and some friends got together at the crib to shoot some hoops on Rozay's regulation-size outdoor court.

As usual, there were stacks of cash all over the place. And like Khaled says, they're always "instagramming lots of money."

Soon, a friendly shoot-around escalated into a $10,000 free-throw contest. And then $40,000. And then $80,000. And then $120,000.

In the end, Ross and Khaled split the pot while French Montana and Meek Mill sportingly complained that "the OGs pulled an OG move on us."

As for how the Bawse plans to spend his winnings: "Imma put them leather drapes in the yacht, nigga."
