Rick Ross has dropped guest verses in loads of hip hop, pop and R&B joints, but imagine the Teflon Don dabbling in the metal/punk world. It almost happened thanks to Florida metalcore act A Day to Remember. That is, until the MC thought the band might be bonafide satanists.
"We wrote a song and we thought it'd be cool to have Rick Ross on it, so we tried to make it happen," vocalist Jeremy McKinnon says of recording Common Courtesy, the band's fifth LP (out today, following its October 8 digital release).
"He heard the song and met a bunch of people who work with us," McKinnon says. "The first thing he asked us is, 'Are you guys satanists?' Evidently, somebody told him yes and we never heard from him again. He would have suited the song."
