In a video Yung6ix posted, he replied those who raised questions over Ross’ failure to have a meet and greet with Nigerian rappers.

Yung6ix who often refers to himself as the one true rapper, suggested that it was because of his absence that Ross snubbed every other rap artiste.

He said; ”There is no way I would say this that it won’t be offensive to somebody. But I don’t care. People were saying Rick Ross didn’t acknowledge any Nigerian rapper when he came to Nigeria. Did you not know that the only Nigerian rapper was in America?”
