In a recent episode of "The OGs" podcast, rapper Rick Ross told hosts Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller that buying part of the Miami Heat would, "be for the city."

"The OGs" a new podcast hosted by Heat legends Haslem and Miller, featured Ross on their most recent episode and it did not disappoint. From topics about Ross potentially buying a part of the Heat to Ross's top five favorite Miami players of all time, a lot was covered.

Udonis Haslem said he would love to see Rick Ross, who grew up in Miami, buy into the Miami Heat franchise.

Haslem brought up the idea that Ross, a Miami native, should buy a part of the Miami Heat franchise.

"I know you got the money now," Haslem said, bringing up the idea of Ross purchasing a minority stake in the Heat franchise.

"We got to get a piece of that Miami Heat," Ross said.

"In my mind, I would love to see that," Haslem said.

"That's the dream for Rozay." Ross said. "It would be for the city. Just to see somebody from the city come up and earn that."

The idea of Ross owning part of the Heat would be really cool. Ross grew up in Miami and doing so would set an example for kids in the area of what a person with a similar background can achieve.

Rick Ross' all-time Heat lineup

Ross' list had a good mixture of guys that fans would know in Udonis Haslem, Shaquille O'Neal, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Tim Hardway. Four out his five players have their jerseys retired in Miami. Ross also named Sherman Douglas, a throw-back who played for Miami from 1989-1992

Journeys for Ross and Haslem

Another cool moment is when Ross compared his journey to Haslem's.

If you're a Miami Heat fan and a fan of Rick Ross, then this would be a good listen for you. Both Ross and Haslem have Miami ties and have similar backgrounds with similar viewpoints on what both of their professions have in common.
