Rick Ross Made It Rain Money (Literally) at His New Year's Eve Party on South Beach

Ricky Rozay rolling deep on NYE.

Gripping the mike like a glock, Ross pledged allegiance to the streets with "I'm Not a Star." He dropped his verse off Khaled's club killer "I'm on One." He got his people spittin' hard with ode to excess "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)." And he slipped into "Aston Martin Music," dedicating it to "all the ladies in your nice, tight New Year's dresses."

Cigars and blunts got sparked. Drinks got spilled. Shit got messy. And as midnight hit, Cameo's staff blasted the club with a massive supercold shot of compressed air, confetti, and crisp dollar bills.

Yes, Rick Ross made it rain money. Literally.

Cash fell from sky. And then it hit the floor.

Bringing in the New Year like a true Boss, Ross and his buddies popped bottle after bottle. The club's hired dancers humped to the top of brass poles. And the VIPs ignored all that cash strewn across the floor while general-admission types stooped to stuff their pockets.

Seconds later, the DJ cranked the party into high-speed again, dropping the instantly recognizable backing track for Ross's final cut of the night. And as twitchy 808 beats and surging synth loops echoed off Cameo's walls, the big homie delivered a tidbit of trademark wisdom to mark the beginning of 2012.

"It's the New Year," he said. "Whether you spent $100,000 or $100 tonight, the only thing that should be runnin' through your head is 'Ima Boss'!"
