One of the many spectacles on Rick Ross’s God Forgives, I Don’t (out, finally, this week) is a song called “Diced Pineapples,” which turns out to be not so much about canned fruit as it is about sex. Still, the song’s title is part of the long, time-honored tradition that is Rozay rapping about food. Lobster bisque, SpaghettiOs, chocolate milk — entire restaurants could be run from his musical food diary. And truly, the man can turn any food stuff into a synonym for money. It is a gift. So, in honor of the Boss’s culinary enthusiasm, here, now, is a list of pretty much every single vaguely edible item ever mentioned in a Rick Ross song or verse. (Yes, metaphors count.)
