Rick Ross says he’s visiting the ‘country’ of Africa; Twitter erupts



Rick Ross blasted on Twitter for calling Africa a country 

Rick Ross, who caught flack for alluding to date rape in a song, is being criticized anew for an asinine remark he made on Twitter.

Ross, 37, is preparing for the release of  Wale’s album, The Gifted, and traveling across the globe to promote it.

Recently, the Maybach Music emcee stopped in Africa and sent out the tweet below.


After a number of people noted that the rapper mistook Africa for a country instead of a continent, Twitter was ablaze with responses.

Ross has yet to correct his flub but fans like the one below are continuing to crack jokes.
