According to Chewin The Phat:
Rick Ross FINALLY Admits to being a Corrections Officer!
It only took two years, but Rick Ross has finally admitted to his past as a corrections officer in Florida. Accusations first surfaced in 2008 – not a good look considering he was trying to sell himself as a gangster rapper. Ross denied the claims at the time, saying that the picture posted online was made by online hackers who put his face on other people’s bodies. He even released a track about it. “B*tch, I’m the boss and I’m laughing at your blogs,” he rapped over Snoop‘s “Life of da Party.” “I’m the glue in the streets, meaning I can get you stuck/ The world knows where the f*ck I’m from/ Sell rock, 20 chains and I never lost one.”
But oh hey guess what…
Ross has finally admitted that, yes, he was a corrections officer. While promoting the July 20th release of Teflon Don and maintaining that he’s still the Boss in the streets, Ross copped to the correctional job. But he justified it by saying he did it for the paychecks. We doubt Dre or Cube would have let this argument slide back in the day, but whatever [Note Content]. “It’s a lot of truth to it. And it’s a lot of truth to hustling and still getting money,” Ross said. “And when you self made you understand that. If I went broke and had to go to McDonald’s and sell fries. If I knew I had the ambition and drive that I do… at that point did I know I was going to build an empire worth $10 million.”
