Rick Ross. Two words, two syllables, and one hardcore boss.
Over that past 12 months, the Maybach Music capo effortlessly managed to make 2011 his bitch, surviving two seizures and a Kreyashawn diss along the way. He expanded his investment portfolio, adding Wingstop franchisee to his resume. And along with his MMG crew, Ross dropped one the best albums of the year.
Next week, the Boss will welcome 2012 with a $100,000 New Year's Eve party at Cameo. But before we say goodbye to 2011, we wanted to look back at some of the baller shit Ross did this year. Check it after the cut.

As the MMG family boss, Ross has the right to conduct business sans white tee. Dude's too busy making moves to cover his man boobs anyhow.

$1,000,000 Rain Storm
Without question, the most baller shit Ross did this year was make it rain $1 million at K.O.D. And you thought your birthday party was wild? Child please.
