Rick Ross Correction Officer Rumor Confirmed

Rick Ross denied being a corrections officer in his past, but TheSmokingGun.com uncovered documents that verified claims that the Miami rapper was in fact a law officer.

Pictures surfaced online of Ross in a officer’s uniform, but in a video interview he denied the authenticity of the image. Ross said it was his head, however, the uniformed body was doctored and attached to his face.

“If this shit was real, don’t you think they would have more specifics, like dates and everything,” Ross responded.

TheSmokingGun.com revealed plenty of specifics. They reported yesterday that a man with the same social security number as Ross was employed as a prison guard in Florida from December 1995 until June 1997. Ross, real name William Leonard Roberts, earned a salary of almost $23,000 when he graduated from the DOC training academy and earned almost $26,000 when he left. He was allegedly 19-years-old at the time.

A department of corrections spokesperson supplied the document-digging Website with the information.

Ross has not commented on the report as of press time.—LaTisha Robbins

  • AZ40

    It probably wouldn’t have been that bad if he didn’t try to deny it, but this shit was when he was young and only for a little while, well actually almost 10 years ago…But the nigga still could’ve been doin dirt…not like he said, he wasn’t no fuckin’ drug kingpin but he still could’ve been a dirty law enforcement agent, personally I don’t trust any of them niggas.

  • whats CraCCin

    On the real …. what’s really messed up about it is that there’s alot of aspiring emcees young and old who are dying to get in this game. But because these fake wannabe drug King Pins like Ross, Jigga, TI, Jeezy, … infiltrate the game with nothing but drug tales .. every ohter emcee believe they have to rap about the same thing. What’s worst they all claim to be so real … and they talk about the non drug dealing emcees like it’s a sin. Don’t get me wrong nothing wrong with hustling, I believe we’ve all hustled at one time, but why you have to glamourize it. A real hustler don’t wanna talk about that life because a real hustler probably have some real demons he don’t need to come back to haunt him. Fucc the fake Thugs

    • Bang

  • http://xxlMAG jb-da b.stuy reppa

    I knew about this shit about a year ago from my Florida peoples. ALL these rappers are liars…..at least 98% of them. If you dig long enough they all got skeletons in they closet.

  • 239allday

    When keepin it real goes wrong!!

    Tell me this!!! How the fuck you gon lie about somthing that is documented?

    Look at that big ol’ house nigger grin he got on.

    I knew somthing about this nigga was off. This nigga straight PIE.

  • THAT BOY NOAH

    rick ross is lookin like a fool now!

  • Black Star

    Anybody who believed anything this fat mothafucka was some large miami kingpin was a dumbass from the jump. What kingpin would be braggin about their dealings on a record or even rappin for that matter?

    All those tattoos he got playin like he some thug.Nah he was a fat doughnut eatin cop. Any real thug has a rap sheet, I don’t care how smart you are in the game you gon get bagged here and there. No thug can become a CO or a cop cuz you gon have some type of criminal background even if you aint convicted you would at least have some arrests keepin you from them type of jobs. Real hustlers aint trying to go into that type of shit anyhow.

    This nigga was a schoolboy, turned Vanilla Ice, Milli Vanilli fake byatch. You can tell he was a fraud the way he was all extra wit his talk and shit cuz he know his life is a lie. Hopefully he go kill himself now, fuckin pig, rat, snitch.

  • Arcey

    like moe said “…everybody has to do something to pay their bills…”

    Is there anyone out there who really believes Ross when he talks about that Kingpin shit??!!

    It’s all entertainment like Johnny Depp in “BLOW” playing George Jung

    and like AZ40 said he might have been a crooked officer – getting the drugs inside the walls & things of that nature

  • stuckfresh

    That shit was 10 years before he started rapping! He did that shit for a year or 2 and said it wasn’t for him!! Then got in the dope game and made some real money! then instead of ending up in jail or dead he got in the rap game!! If he was a C.O in 1999 or after you would have a point!! But it was 10 years ago!! What was he doing for 10 years??? Getting Money!! Dont hate Fuck Nigga!! Trick just mad he cant sell records no more!! BOSS!!! Fuck dj Khaled 2!!

    • e20

      Even if what Stuckfresh says is true, I can’t believe Ross after lying about that picture.

    • 239allday

      Stuckfresh, You are obviously an officer of the law defendin Ross like that. You said Trick can’t sell records, his lowest selling album has sold more than Ross’s highest selling. Trick’s all gold and platinum homie.

      If trick put out an album right now the whole south gon be behind it. Ross only got white boys and police coppin his shit.

  • Jason Murk

    He would have been better off just confessing instead of lying and saying the pic was photoshopped.

    Dude was 19 years old when he became a CO, and he only did it for two years. Him being a CO really wouldn’t have been that big of a deal if he had told the truth about it, because it was 11 YEARS AGO, and shit, we all do shit we’re not proud of to MAKE BREAD at some point in our lives.

    But now since he lied, Rick Ross has no credibility whatsoever.

  • http://www.myspace.com/youngsoul7695 soul

    Man the worst thing to do is to be a liar..Me (Soul), who now currently is a independent artist and i too worked for the N.C. D.O.C. from 2000-2006 and i was rapping the whole time i worked there..tru story.. I gained respect from real people locked up behind them bars and i was never fake about who i am… I also never let those who were locked up influence me to spit about there life style… Long story short I couldn’t help impact those whom society threw away in a positive way plus it was a job, alot of my co-workers enojoyed putting down others, but that shit wasn’t me… Ross …if you was a C.O. man up and face the fact….It’s more to the game than standing in a trap!!!

  • stuckfresh

  • dc dirty

    Here’s my thing. If someone was tryin to put you out there why would they call u a fed?
    The would mostly likely call u a fag! Look what Eazy did wit Dre? Rick Ross should come out like a lot of deez fake ass rappers and say, I did a have a job b4 rap. It’s just shows u how niggas be fakin. Truth be told if u really was moving shit on kingpin status then last thing u want to be is a rapper bcuz you already living like what niggas is rappin about!

  • klazziq

    name one major dope king pin who never fucced with the jump out boys or didnt have them in his back pocket?????? dont worry ill wait…. who gives a fucc if ross was a pig or a dirty pig he has to answer for that shit not me or u… and music should be about if ur tight on the mic or not.. thats the problem with music now mufuccas is more worried about wut a hood a nigga from n who he shot .. hip hop was never based jus on hood status it was about ur skillz. man how i miss those dayz

  • giantstepp

    I have no convictions, no felony charges and was denied from being a CO in DC back in about 95 after passing all of the preliminary requirements (test) etc. They said it was because of my background check. I had a few driving violations (no dui’s), some juvenlie BS but nothing major at all. Rick Ross must’ve been squeaky clean to land that CO gig, unless its different in florida. Nothing is wrong with earning a honest living in law enforcement. But to create the image that he did while leading the youngins astray is just wrong!

    Rick Ross career, RIP!

  • Laron

    Rap skills are good but if you say you live a certain way, do certain illegal things and call people fake and then come to find out you just as fake as the people you cal fake, it’s stupid.Ross is a fake. Yes, his lyrical skills should matter but be real as well,dont tell people you this and that and tell people they fake when your the fakest one of them all.

  • John Brown

    I live in Miami and when ROSS came out I heard that he was indeed a C.O. but I could care less if the man was or wasnt. If he was indeed a C.O. it is stated that he was from Dec. 95-June 97. We dont know what he did from June 97 till he blew up. I aint GOD so I wont be judging ROSS. Maybe being a C.O. is how he got into the Coke game, I mean Miami cops & C.O.’s are very shady. ROSS was a C.O. and he partnered up with a Kingpin and maybe he did push all that weight. Or maybe he just heard stories from inmates and thats what he raps about. We don’t know but we all have skeletons in our closet.

  • BX POSTER CHILD

    WATS THE BIG DEAL???

    Not really a shock, considering Rick Ross, is actually some other drug dealers name he’s using. 90% of the Rappers are Fake. Industry is a Place of Entertainment. These Guys are Entertainers and, Thats it.
