Rick Ross has been sued for not paying a bill for three Rolexes he bought last year. Johnny's Custom Jewelry in Texas filed suit against Ross and his Maybach Music Group for skipping out on nearly $90,000 in purchases, claiming the rapper agreed to purchase three Rolexes last August.

Johnny's claims they delivered the jewelry to Ross, but the rapper hasn't yet forked over the cash. Ross has not yet made a statement on the matter.

Ross' next album, Mastermind, is expected this year.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
