Video: Dwyane Wade Celebrates Rick Ross’ No. 1 Album, Clowns On His Dribbling Skills'
2 Min Read

Dwyane Wade was overjoyed to know that hip hop artist Rick Ross’ “Port of Miami 2” album landed on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. 

The former Miami Heat star congratulated Ross on his achievement in an Instagram story while the celebrated rapper was seen playing with a basketball in the background.

“Big ups to my big homie for having the No. 1 album, man,” Wade said. “‘Port of Miami 2’ if you all ain’t listening, listen to it over and over and over again, dawg.” 

Wade, however, knocked his friend off the pedestal a bit by making fun of his basketball skills.

“I don’t know what you’re doing with that, though,” he said. “That ain’t it!”

Being one of the best players in the league during his heyday gave Wade some leeway to poke a little bit of fun at Ross.

Wade also posted a series of pictures with Ross, repping the 305 area code.

Ross’ album took the No. 1 slot on the Aug. 24 list of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Interestingly, during this same week 13 years ago, “Port of Miami” also debuted at the top of the Aug. 26, 2006 chart.

Ross is a huge Heat supporter, often seen at American Airlines Arena to cheer on the team.

Beginning in the 2019-20 regular season, fans might now find him sitting alongside the recently retired Wade.
