More Details Emerge About Rick Ross’ Law Career

TheSmokingGun.com has obtained additional paperwork to further validate Rick Ross as a correctional officer in Miami years ago.

The Web site uncovered more documents through a Freedom of Information Act request with the Florida Department of Corrections. The rapper’s employment application, an awarded certificate, and his personal history record, among other items, are posted on theSmokingGun.com.

Last week, the rumors regarding Ross and his past surfaced. Pictures of the rapper in his correctional officer uniform popped up on the Web. Initially, Ross denied the claim, saying the images were altered by online hackers.

The fact-finding site now has traced names found on the rapper’s employment application, specifically his mother and sister, Tommie Ann Roberts and Tawanda Roberts. Their names appear on the liner notes of Ross’ recent album, Trilla, in the thank you section. The address Ross listed on his application is also the same address that his charitable foundation is currently listed at now.

Ross’ resignation letter, dated June 2nd, 1997, is also available to view.

“My decision has been made after months of deliberation, and now I feel that this is the right decision for me,” Ross said in the typed note. “Thank you for your interest in my career and for the experience I’ve gained through my employment at South Florida Reception Center.”—Nino “Dubs” DeLuca

    Yo, it’s offically a wrap for this dude. This fool is like the milli vanilli of the rap game right now. Next thing you know, we find out he doesn’t write his rhymes. This fool is the poster boy for what is wrong with hip-hop nowadays. In the words of Large Professor, Ross is Fakin’ the Funk.

  • Laron

    • KLETEWOOD

  • Ludacris is the best.

    First of all, this nigga shouldnt have denied it. When asked about it he should have said yes. It doesnt change anything about him, he could have gone into the drug game and all the other stuff he proclaim or said after the fact. Second of all, this discredit his persona, because he lied, so he is gonna lose a lot of respect and fans.

  • escober

    there is nothing fucked up about being an officer…dude has worked hard to get where he is, you can tell from his documents but the trouble is you internet gangsters dwell on negativity..

    when will y’all learn that it is just entertainment?

    if i make 23k a year and figured i’d make 10 times more by being a someone else, i’d do it…we’d all do it.

    respect his game and learn a few things or two.

    BOSS!!

  • escober

    Think of this..

    “Hip Hop icon, and creator of the term “thug life,” Tupac Shakur, once confessed that although occasionally sprinkling his rhymes with mentions of felonious activities, he never actually had a record until he made a record.”

  • Severe3000

    “Laron says:

    Is there any real rapper in this game???Somebody tell me.”

    allow me to list a few “real” rappers. of course, all rappers real or fake, greatly exaggerate real life. but yall feel free to add on to the list. if im wrong about any of these niccaz, please let us know:

    DMX
    THE LOX
    THE CLIPSE
    TRICK DADDY
    JEEZY
    SCARFACE
    UGK
    BONE THUGS
    JA RULE (just kidding..lol)

    • TxTitan

      Severe3000…I completely Co-Sign my nigga….I fuck wit Ross, just wish he would have been straight about it and told the truth….thats what real niggas do….

  • ri067953

    Yo, this goes out to escobar. I can appreicate entertainment for what it is but the bar in Hip-hop is set a little higher. It all relates back to the streets and if we allow frauds like Rick Ross to perputrate this gangster image then it makes all of hip-hop look ignorant. I can repect those that spit gangster shit that have lived the life but for some lame to come up and never lived the life is a different story. He making it seem like he runs the streets when in fact, he doesn’t and probably never has.

    In the words of W.C. You gots to Pay Ya Dues homie, otherwise, you just a fraud and I don’t know about you but I don’t affiliate with snakes in the grass, in any aspect of life, entertainment or not, homie. You can’t put out an album named “Trill” meaning true and real when your not! Bottom line!

    • escober

      to ri067953

      those that just speak facts without adding lies never make it big.

      can you point out one rapper that isn’t a fake and is a multi milionaire.

      hip hop ain’t the same as it used to be, everyone is just out to make a quick buck, very few people do it for the love of it

    To Laron: “Are there any real rappers in this game???Somebody tell me.” ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ Sure they are, let me tell you who… Andre 3000, Talib Kweli, Black Thought, Common, Goodie Mob, Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy. Just to name a few. You see all those artist or groups I’ve named have one thing in common, they are themselves. They don’t fake the funk or have no reason to. A real nigga that done been in the streets and done real shit aint proud of that shit and neither glorifies it! Hell, yall don’t like soldier boy, but at least he stays in his lane and not talkin bout sellin dope and poppin niggaz! Cause Dem Boyz Iz AlwayZ Watchin. Peace!! (South Carolina Slim)

  • Clever

    What a shame, Man! I guess thats a wrap huh?

  • Clever

    He shouldn’t have lied about it. He should have said, ” Yeah I was a Correctional Officer , whats it to you? ” It probably would have passed on. Now Reporters and, the media want to have a field day on Him. I knew he used the Name Rick Ross from someone that was actually doing it. Just like 50cent used somebodies life to gain his fame and, getting shot just added more heat to him. All these Rappers not Emcees, are fake. Period. None of them could tell you what ah Bank House ( Trap House ) look like. LOL!

  • Silverback Gorilla

    Y would he lie?! Its kinda impossible to hide anything like dat these days. He would’ve known that there was somebody who could validate that accusation ( prisoners, friends, family members )I don’t believe it. The internet isn’t exactly the most reliable source for ALL information. Miami ain’t the best place to be ‘fake’ either (understatment).
