Dampte Is Nigeria's Rick Ross


Well, not really. But you can't tell us this press photo we got in our inbox from the Nigerian MC doesn't resemble Ricky Rozay. In reality he sounds less the cocaine rapper and more the auto-tune toting Top 40 act. Which kind of makes sense because "Are You Ready" features T-Pain's Nappy Boy signee Tay Dizm on the hook, and a synth borrowed from pretty much any T.I. song. Not much else to see here. Move along.
