    A Thousands Words For Rick Ross

    Now that it’s been revealed that Rick Ross was a rent-a-cop is his career over?

    ———————————————————————————–
    When a picture of a teenage Rick Ross in a correctional officer’s uniform surfaced on MediaTakeout.com last week, Ross was quick to write them off as fakes. Claiming that someone photoshopped his highschool yearbook photo, Ross was quoted as saying, “fake pictures are created by the fake, meant to entertain the fake.” Now, The Smoking Gun is reporting that the picture is indeed Ross, even going as far as to print official documents and records on their site. Now that it’s been revealed that the dude who took his name from L.A. coke baron “Freeway” Ricky Ross is actually a former rent-a-cop, is his credibility shot? Or can he still pull off his act as hip hop’s biggest drug kingpin?

    Common people, so what, the whole industry is mostly made up of lies. If he was a C/O what does that mean. I know some C/O’s that were drug dealers and did more work on the inside than most guys did on the outside. It’s a job. Think about it, they said one of the guys who murdered Biggie Smalls was a cop. Don’t base your opion of someone on someone’s else’s feelings . Just because “Daddy Washed Up Trick” doesn’t particularly like him does it make his music any less appealing? Grow up and enjoy the music. NOTE: I don’t like either one of these guys, they say the same country siht to me!

    Well I’ve been playing RR’s new album all week, love it. Nothing about his former employment will make me think any worse or better about him sorry luv. As someone who use to work in goverment, most of my former collegues are working a side hustle anyway. So RR’s was music and drugs…nothing out of the ordinary to me.

    Yeah most rappers build their whole career on lies, 99% talk about having shot somebody, robbed and pimped but barely 1% did it for real.. I think at 19 yrs old you do what you gotta do to get some cream..maybe he had a contact who hooked him up to work as a prison guard, and I can’t blame him for taking the job, it’s safer and brings more money then being a small time drug dealer.. Think people should consider that most rappers lie to get street cred..and most have probably done jobs their ashamed of.. I ain’t neva gon’ stop bangin Ross’ music cuz of that.. the brother got talent, and this has nuthing to do with street cred.

    genral, You sound dumb as hell. there has never been and black gangstas. Do your reasearch homie. It depends on what you call a gangsta. It hasnt been to many black kingpins. But there has been plenty of black gangstas. Then you have the nerve to call the people above you idiots. You speak of gangstas, then end your statement by mentioning eminem. You really need to take your ass to sleep, get yourself some rest, wake up and start talking some damn sense.
