"[Justin Vernon is] a fucking genius. I'd never seen nor heard of him in my life...and I was in a fucking 5-by-5 room with a white guy, smoking weed...His voice is like something I've never heard, and he's using words that are far from common. Within 20 minutes, I realized why Kanye had him there." - Rick Ross, on working with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon with Kanye West in Hawaii. [via Billboard]
