D.C. Young Fly has revealed that Rick Ross will be returning to the 85 South podcast – despite his infamous Irish exit during his last appearance.
As the comedian makes his rounds to promote his role in the new House Party reboot, he spoke to HipHopDX about the 2021 incident.
“Yeah, as a matter of fact I ran into him in the club,” D.C. Young Fly said. “He said he was going to do the interview again and finish what he left. The longest bathroom break I’ve ever seen. No cap.
“He said ‘I’ma come back, you feel me?’” he continued. “I was like, ‘You shoulda said that.’ He had to go handle some business though.”
The viral moment of Ross’ original appearance (and consequently, his disappearance) went down in December 2021 following the release of Ross’ last album, Richer Than I Ever Been. The MMG mogul sat down with D.C. Young Fly, Karlous Miller and Chico Bean to chop it up about the project, and about 37 minutes into the conversation, he apparently decided that he had better things to do.
“Let me use the restroom one time and then I’ma take this jacket off,” Ross announced before getting up and leaving the room – never to return again.
Nearly 10 minutes passed before the hosts received an update from Rick Ross’ team, being told that “something came up” and he’d actually completely left to catch a flight.
A few months later, Ross addressed the interview when he sat down with The Breakfast Club in April 2022.
“I think I was really just in a zone,” he explained. “I was smoked out good and I was in a zone. When I’m in a zone and I get one of those money calls, I just ease out that muthafucka. I’ma be honest, when I found out about it, it was already everywhere online.
“I ain’t even realize it. I went to the bathroom, was on the phone and smoked one. You go outside and just leave. Them my lil’ homies too and it was a cool interview. We smoking and chilling and shit.”

Elsewhere in his new interview with HipHopDX, D.C. Young Fly spoke about his role in House Party and the pressures surrounding the fact it’s a reboot of a classic film.
“This is an amazing cast and ensemble,” he said. “We’ve been hearing things about what they thought the movie was gonna be but we never allowed that to transition into set work. We never allowed none of the bad energy to come on set.
“We already knew what we was facing we just got together and was like, ‘Whatever happens, we’re going to do it together. And not only are we going to do it together, let’s just have fun. We’ll worry about the extra stuff later on.’
He continued: “But as we can see now, the results, this is a great movie. Not only does it pay homage to the older generation, but it’s refreshing. It gives us a new light on what House Party would be in today’s time.”
The new House Party premiered Friday (January 13) and is in theaters now.
