Rick Ross Makes Harvey Levin His B*tch -- Your Name Is 'Hervis' Now

Soo ... Rick Ross hijacked one of our camera guys on the streets of NYC this week -- telling him he no longer works for TMZ, he's property of RR. And then he gave Harvey a new name ... "Hervis."

The whole thing was pretty hilarious -- and our camera guy was initially stoked to be in Rick's employ, until the rapper broke some pretty terrible news ... NO CHRISTMAS PARTIES.

Turns out, Harvey actually embraced the re-naming ... and celebrated by getting in touch with his urban side.

Hervis, out.
