It looks like Rick Ross is officially a Swiftie.

Rozay shocked fans when he put his stamp of approval on Taylor Swift's new album The Tortured Poets Department right before it arrived on Friday, April 19. In a post he made on X, formerly known as Twitter, the MMG bawse said he planned to play the album on full blast while on his yacht. He also offered his thoughts on Swift's knack for cooking up creative song titles.

"Fresh out the slammer and Florida!!!" he exclaimed. "Blasting on the Yacht at Midnight. Taylor writes like a Boss and her song titles are Gangsta."

Taylor Swift's album arrived at midnight on Friday with 16 songs including "Fresh Out The Slammer" and "Florida!!!" featuring Florence + the Machine. She also revealed a extended version called The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology with 15 additional songs.

Ross' co-sign may have been genuine, but it arrived at an interesting time. He's currently at war with one of Swift's close friends Drake, who recently dissed him on "Push Ups." Rozay quickly returned fire with his response "Champagne Moments," in which he called Drake a "white boy" and accused him of getting a nose job. Drizzy denied the claims, but that didn't stop Ross from continuing their war of words. The two former collaborators have been going back-and-forth on social media ever since. At one point, Ross even offered to make peace with Drake, but he had to "apologize" first.

“I’m the bigger person, I’m a boss," Rozay said. "Drake, I’m gonna give you an opportunity to apologize. First and foremost you gotta admit, confess you got your nose, your nose reduction. And confess you got a BBL. And I understand, I know what it’s like having those flaps on your stomach and that sweat being under there, you ain’t wanna do that, you wanted to just [sic] f**k a gym, n***a… You could go get it done, and you did it. Just confess.”

Drake has yet to respond to Rozay's offer.
