Rick Ross Calls Justin Vernon "A Fucking Genius"

Rick Ross Calls Justin Vernon "A Fucking Genius"

Bon Iver's self-titled sophomore album comes out next month, but his domination of the press cycle has begun with a cover story on the current issue of Billboard. The story touches on the usual back story talking points, but gets interesting when it details the still (mostly) untold story of Justin Vernon ending up all over Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. They didn't get Kanye to comment, but Rick Ross, who worked with Vernon on "Monster" did, and he has this to say:

"He's a fucking genius," Ross says. "I'd never seen nor heard of him in my life, and I looked up, and I was in a fucking 5-by-5 room with a white guy, smoking weed . . . and his voice is like something I've never heard, and he's using words that are far from common. Within 20 minutes, I realized why Kanye had him there."

I wish there was a documentary to capture the recording of Fantasy, because the idea of a dude from Eau Claire partying with Rick Ross in a closet is better than 90 percent of Hollywood movies. Read the whole story at Billboard.
