Rick Ross Reveals Why He Became a Corrections Officer

Rick Ross dons the cover of the upcoming Rolling Stone magazine issue, and he finally decided to get specific on his past as a corrections officer—a subject he’s either avoided, or has been discussing vaguely for years.

According to the article, Rozay took the job after seeing his friend receive 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin. The excerpt stated:

“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 fucking corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”

In addition, the interview will include Ross’s take on the right to bear arms, which he supports wholeheartedly [although he doesn’t know the amendment that supports the act], his affection towards Chick-fil-A, and his school years as a high school football player who “was never good at math.”—XXL Staff (@XXL)
