Rick Ross mourns the loss of his manager, Black Bo.

On Friday, Rick Ross confirmed the passing of his longtime manager, Black Bo. XXL’s C. Vernon Coleman II reports that the “Trap Trap Trap” rapper broke the news during his set at MAXIM’s December Miami Issue Party, which took place during Art Basel.

Rozay stated, “This is an extremely sexy party. I know my dog Black would’ve loved to be here. Come on, let me rap for my dog Black one time.” Ross then performed “Hustlin'” as a tribute to Black Bo. It’s unclear how Black Bo died.

Ross also took to Instagram to pay tribute to Bo with a slideshow of photos and a heartfelt caption, “Everything is God’s timing.He called home a beautiful soul.I called him by his middle name ‘LETEEF’.1st one I saw and spoke to every morning.My friend,business partner and My codefendant.He defined TRUST,HONESTY,LOYALTY not only to myself but everyone who met him.This is painful but we promised eachother 2 always remain strong.Until we meet again your words will replay a LIFETIME. @blackbomaybach 🙏🏽 REST IN PARADISE #MMG 🌴.”

Wale, who also appears to be deeply affected by Black Bo’s passing, weighed in on his death via Instagram, “As the tears begin to chase each other down my face .. I️ try to combat the sadness of this new reality with the indelible memories u gave us. It still doesn’t seem real.. it can’t be real!”

“WHY is it real? Absolutely None of us have to try to think of the selflessness the genuine compassion and absolute loyalty for your friends you demonstrated daily.. no sir, because those things are synonymous with your face. Those things are synonymous with your name. Those things… synonymous wit the very thought of you comrade . My heart hurts so much.”

Many member of the Hip Hop community have since come forward to pay tribute to Black Bo.

As the tears begin to chase each other down my face .. I️ try to combat the sadness of this new reality with the indelible memories u gave us. It still doesn’t seem real.. it can’t be real! WHY is it real? Absolutely None of us have to try to think of the selflessness the genuine compassion and absolute loyalty for your friends you demonstrated daily.. no sir, because those things are synonymous with your face. Those things are synonymous with your name. Those things… synonymous wit the very thought of you comrade . My heart hurts so much . I’m wondering if I’ll ever need it again .. The world ,the label ..,shit EVERYBODY knows I’m a mess . I’m flawed I’m flawed I’m flawed and maybe I️ don’t even belong . Maybe I️ never did. BUT because of you ,the insecurities and self doubt became as insignificant As these tears in a hurricane. At this very moment I’m writing off instinct . The pain the sorrow the mourning is inevitable. But I️ could take 14 forevers and still never find the words that illustrate how much we love you . How much I️ love you .how much I️ need you. Your wisdom , composure an ear to listen a shoulder to cry on all things we foolishly tend to take for granted . May God be with your family and friends . I️ Love u OG .. you will forever be in our hearts. And I️ will cherish every piece of advice you gave 🙏🏾Black 🙏🏾
