Johannesburg - In case you missed it, multi-award winning American rapper Rick Ross, has used the image of Minnie Dlamini to promote the release of his latest album, Hood Billionaire, which was released worldwide this past Monday.

The post which caused quite a stir in the comments, received over 29714 likes in under 24hrs. Rick Ross goes on to say that he thinks the woman in the picture is beautiful.
