Bruce Springsteen the boss vs Rick Ross the bawse

The Bawse Vs. The Boss

“…Mass Appeal feels as if it’s long overdue to settle an age old, decade-long, debate that has been plaguing us for a while now…”

In celebration of Bruce Springsteen’s new LP, Wrecking Ball, landing at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart earlier today, Mass Appeal feels as if it’s long overdue to settle an age old, decade-long, debate that has been plaguing us for a while now: who’s the bigger boss, Bruce or Rick Ross? While Rozay undoubtedly dons a larger waistline (and way more mass, word to Big Pun), there are plenty of heavier factors that one must consider in this matchup and MA’s got the stats. But in the end, it’s up to you to decide. Will it be the Teflon Don from M.I. Yayo or Mr. “Born in the U.S.A”? Check the resumé and be sure to add your two cents in the comments section.
