Self-proclaimed “boss”, Miami rapper Rick Ross has admitted he once held down a gig as a correctional officer. After being questioned numerous times, and adamantly denying it, many were still convinced otherwise. Well it turns out that those who DID think it was true…were right.I am glad he finally owned up to it because the truth of the matter is nobody should care! You are a rapper and you are here to make good music and entertain. Rick Ross does just that! I don't know why people think that because you had a job or went to college then you not a real dude, hustler, thug, whatever!! There is nothing that states that you have to be an idiot to do so!! I am just disappointed that it took him this long to admit it! He says he's not ashamed of his past, yet he lied when proof was everywhere. Well anyway now you guys can leave this issue alone!
Ross sat down with a magazine recently and explained himself. He was shown a picture of the CO photo and was asked, point blank, if that was him or not.
“Yes. It’s me.” He also added, “I never tried to hide my past. I put my name inside my cds. My company has my SS#. I could’ve put a company name… I done been up and I done been down and that’s what makes me what I am. I never ratted on a nigga. I never prosecuted a nigga. I never locked up a nigga, that’s first and foremost. I always felt that me being the nigga that I am, I never owed a nigga an explanation… When I’m making my music and I’m talking about blow, it’s because I did it. When I say that I’m rich off cocaine, it’s because i did it. Those are the street principals that apply.
