Rick Ross became the latest rapper to weigh in on the unexpected death of DJ AM and even shared a memory of the late mix king. Saying he has a relationship with Travis Barker, Ricky said "Sometimes, you gotta just look in the mirror and reflect and take control of yourself first and foremost." Officer Ricky went on to say "A lot of time, we're quick to speak on other's situations and what's going on. But we gotta reflect and grasp what's happening. When I hear situations like DJ AM, its very unfortunate. I'm one of the dudes that's cool with Travis Barker. They went through their situation [with the South Carolina plane crash]. I talked to Travis a short time after that. When AM made his recovery, it was at a club in L.A. I came out, kicked it, bought some T-shirts, rocked the mic. A lot of times, I just really reflect, man. These situations come and go so fast, you gotta sit back and reflect. I try to cherish the moments we have."
