A fan recently spotted Rick Ross out, and asked the rapper to autograph pear for them. And guess what? HE DID IT!

To the uninitiated, Rick Ross signing a pear sounds stupid. So let’s give you the backstory.

Back in May, UK radio personality Tim Westwood interviewed Rick Ross before a concert in London, and the two discussed the rapper’s recent weight loss.

Ross told Westwood, “The most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money. But now they give me fruit to eat. I forgot what fruit tasted like… I eat pears now, and shit like that.”

Then came one of the greatest quotes of 2014: “Shout out to all the pear…”

Of course someone captured the soundbite on Vine and the clip has now gone viral:

And from there came a bunch of parodies and hilarious mash-ups:

Now, the world has come full circle, and Rick Ross is autographing pears. SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE PEAR!

Now this is classic. Fans asking @richforever to autograph #Pears #hoodbillionaire
