Rumor: Rick Ross to perform at Hoops Mania?

Ryan Irwin tweeted the above picture out, which seems to indicate that rapper Rick Ross will be performing at Hoops Mania tonight.

It seems rumors that Rick Ross would be the Hoops Mania musical act for tonight's event are likely to be true after a picture of "Ross" and "Rozay" (a Rick Ross nickname) were seen on the backs of jerseys hanging up in the Villanova equipment room. The picture was obtained by Ryan Irwin, who posted it to Twitter.

Other performers rumored have been Meek Mill, 2Chainz, and Big Sean. The first of those, Meek Mill is signed with Ross' record label, Maybach Music Group.

This would continue a trend of Villanova securing major rap and R&B acts to perform at the basketball kick-off event, to the delight of students and visiting recruits. The trend began with 2006's event, where Tony Yayo and 50 Cent were brought in as a surprise to the crowd. Last season, Villanova was able to get superstar Drake to perform a number of his hits at the Pavilion between stops on his tour.
