 On the Cover: Rick Ross, Gangster of Love | Music News | Rolling Stone


He's the William Howard Taft of the rap game, the guy T-Pain once called "Boss" 20 times in 11 seconds, the only man alive with a diamond-encrusted medallion of his own face: Rick Ross, whose latest album, God Forgives, I Don't, debuted atop the the charts to cement his star status. For the cover story of the new issue of Rolling Stone, which hits newsstands on Friday, August 17th, writer Josh Eells followed in Ross' considerable shadow as the rapper hustled from radio interviews to strip-club bashes in the buildup to the album release. Among the highlights:

Ross suggests that the seizures he suffered late last year were probably the result of smoking too much weed: "I'm most definitely an avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it. I call it green caviar. It's like a short vacation – it helps me chill out. And people really love it when I chill out, because I can really be a d!ckhead."

For the first time, Ross talks about his past life as a corrections officer – an opportunity, he says, to "wash my hands" after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin: "This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude. Suddenly I'm talking to him over federal phone calls. Hearing the way it was building, I knew I couldn't take nothing for granted," says Ross. "My homey's father was a huge influence on my life, too . . . He was the one who was like, 'Yo, go get a job somewhere, man. Go be a fireman. Or go be a fu-king corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere."

After he was suspended from elementary school for horseplay, Ross began attending a small Christian school: "They wanted me to learn the Ten Commandments. I told them I didn't really have time for that right now," recalls Ross, who eventually made his way back to public school and excelled as an offensive lineman in high school football. "I got through high school on my popularity and sh-t," Ross says. "But my grades was never good. I was never good at math."

Ross was digusted by the recent theater shooting in Colorado ("Such a cowardly act"), but he's not in favor of gun control: "I think we all have a right to bear arms, whichever amendment that is." Even a.ssault rifles? He shrugs. "I got 'em."

Ross favors freedom of speech – all kinds: "Chick-fil-A obviously took their stand. That's their right – the same way the pro-gay people are taking their stand. I believe everybody got the right to live their own life the way they want to." So does that mean he'd support a Chick-fil-A boycott? "Naw. I love that spicy chicken."

Honestly, if Ross had come out and said this off top, it would have been a non-issue. Lying about it, is what made the entire situation, a big deal.......

so his uncle told him to get a job, since his best friend was doing 8 years. and being a correctional officer, the same people who would be treating his friend like sh*t for the next 8 years, was the first job that came to mind?.

All of his fake drug don fantasies are actually his Friend life experience, not the first rapper to do that but this guy's big problem was not talking about this but rather LYING about it, you don't lie about that and then come out rapping like your that friend of yours living that miami coke life.

A majority of c.o.'s are cool and down to earth people trying to make a living. They actually help inmates more than hurt them. Don't believe everything you hear.

doesn't seem like an easy job to get. i believe anything in food and beverage would take less training to attain.

this isnt the first time he spoke on it. in a Don Diva magazine last year he admitted to being a C.O. followed by "im a boss so i dont have to explain sh*t" type of answer. I have mag at home

Wasn't this a B.E.T. special about 4years ago and the first question big tigger asked him was "is that you in the photo" that surfaced the net. Guess the difference with the RS interview is that he elaborates on it. I didn't read article though

well my homie's who've done time in southwest and dade county, have told me differently. normally the trustee's look out more than the C.O.'s. i live in miami, so i would think my boys would know how it goes down in my city better then you do. my boys in federal prison told me it is completely different treatment and better. as you can see from the link i posted, i doubt he worked in a federal prison, that would mean he spent atleast a year getting training in that field. which would make his stint as a c.o. less of a 'stint'
