Rick Ross at Summer Jam XV at Comfort Dental Amphitheatre, 6/8/12


Rick Ross is young, rich and famous; he's an international player with so many hits under his belt they might account for his almost-sluggish performance last night at KS 1075's Summer Jam XV. Don't get us wrong -- the Bawse more than showed up and showed out, unleashing hit after hit to a heat-drenched Comfort Dental Amphitheatre crowd, but it gave him a workout. The entire event proved a few things: Wiz Khalifa is on his Steven Tyler swag, Big Sean is a walking double entendre and the influence of radio is back like it never left.
