Rick Ross Calls Himself 'The Rap Game's J.J. Watt'

Rozay compares himself to Houston Texans star defensive end.

In the rap game, there's no doubting Rick Ross's hustle and work ethic. He's fed the streets with two albums last year and is prepping the Black Market LP for December.

In football, there's no doubting Houston Texans Pro Bowl defensive end J.J. Watt, who has won the Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award twice in his first four seasons, including last year.

Well, Rozay sees a similarity between himself and 26-year-old NFL star, which is precisely why he's donning the new moniker the "rap game's J.J. Watt." Rozay made the bold statement on the sidelines during Thursday Night Football's Texans home game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Moments before the declaration, the biggest Bawse had a chance to actually meet Watt during warm-ups prior to the game.

And Rozay wasn't the only star supporting the Texans on their sideline Thursday night. Houston Rockets star Dwight Howard made a special appearance, too, taking a picture with Ross before being introduced on the field as a special guest.

Despite the star power, the Texans fell to the Colts 27-20 and are now just 1-4 this season.

Between the Texans and Rozay's hometown team, the Miami Dolphins (1-3), Ross can't catch a break as an NFL fan these days.
