Brag-Happy U.S. rapper Rick Ross is joining Wiley as the special guest for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Abu Dhabi show this Friday night.

The Mississippi-born star, 38, is known for his larger-than-life persona. He has released seven studio albums to date, all of which have peaked at either number one or two in the American charts.

Ross, who in 2012 was named ‘Hottest MC in the Game’ by MTV, has also featured on hit singles like Bugatti (with Ace Hood and Future), I’m On One (with DJ Khaled, Drake and Lil Wayne) and Monster (with Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z and Bon Iver).

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are among hip-hop’s hottest stars of the moment. The duo won four Grammys this year for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.

Meanwhile, their juggernaut smash Thrift Shop has shifted more than 7.2 million copies - making it the second best-selling single of 2013 behind Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines.

London rapper Wiley is know as the ‘godfather of Grime’. The influential star has risen from the underground to the mainstream in recent years, and has released U.K. top 10 hits like Wearing My Rolex, Heatwave (with Ms D) and Never Be Your Woman (with Emeli Sande).

Tickets to the concert at Du Arena, Yas Island, begin at Dhs295 and are available at www.ticketmaster.ae and all Virgin Megastore outlets across the UAE. For more info, visit www.thinkflash.ae.
