Rick Ross tried to use all of his clout to land a meeting with the Queen.
There’s no denying Rick Ross has seen his fair share of success. He lives a life of luxury: he’s buying lions and cars like it’s nothing. Other rappers are taking notice– Wiz Khalifa said that Ross was a business inspiration for him.
But it seems that all of this success isn’t enough to get Rozay through the Buckingham Palace gates in England. In a recent Instagram Story, Ross explained how he tried to stop by the palace to see the Queen, but was rebuffed.

“Aight so you all saw me going to Buckingham Palace,” said Ross after he posted a video of himself posing in front of its gates. “I pulled my homie to the side, told him who I was: of course, the biggest boss.” But his resumé fell on deaf ears. “One of the first times in a long time, that didn’t get me in,” said Ross with profound disappointment in his voice. “It didn’t get me through the gates. I didn’t get to sit at the table.”
But there was a silver lining. “What he did do was refer me to a spot, he said they’ll be waiting on me,” Ross recounted. “And I could pick the lobster that I wanted to eat, so I forgave him.”
It must have been difficult for Ross to experience such rejection, but it seems like the rapper was appeased by the restaurant opportunity. Rick recently discussed his conflict-resolution skills on the Beyond The Chair podcast. “Whoever I was in the contract with, we always had [an] open phone conversation,” Ross said. “So, if it was anything that was a problem, I presented it and they just explained it to me. If it’s respectable, I’ma respect it because I always felt like, any contract I sign, whatever couple years it was, I could work myself out of this in no time really.”
