Akon: “All Rick Ross Has To Do Is Keep Focusing On Music.”

Hip-hop crooner Akon has some experience dealing with TheSmokingGun.com. The singer was busted by the site when they revealed ‘Kon’s car theft past wasn’t as vast as he led many to believe. Still, Akon has thrived and is in the midst of working with Michael Jackson.

So who better to offer Rick Ross advice?

‘Kon told MTV News that Ross–who was busted after he repeatedly denied his past as a correctional officershould just focus on the music. And that this moment will soon pass.

“It’ll only affect Ross if Ross allows it to affect him,” Akon explained. “Had I gone out and entertained the article [on me], it would have blew the article out of proportion. Wherever they got their facts or information from, let that be what it is. YOu got your story out, thank you very much. I bow to it and keep it moving. Now, if you wanna entertain it, then you’re gonna open up more worms you probably don’t want opened up. So all Ross has to do it focus on his music.”

When pictures surfaced online citing Ross as a correctional officer in Miami, he vehemently denied the allegation. TheSmokingGun.com, however, revealed Ross’ records with Miami’s Department of Corrections. Since the story, Ross has maintained his stance that his street cred is in tact; he hasn’t addressed his time as a law enforcer.—Nino “Dubs” DeLuca.

  • DADE COUNTY 305

    NO HATE! NIGGAZ & FEMALES DOWN HERE KNOW “RICK ROSS” WAS A C O BEFORE THIS RAP SHIT. ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS ADMIT THE SHIT AND MOVE ON. THE SMOKINGGUN COME WITH THE REAL SO HE SHOULDVE KNOWN THE SHIT WAS GOING TO BLOW UP IN HIS FACE.

  • KLETEWOOD

    I agree with DADE COUNTY 305. I’ve been hearing about this CO rumor for years. I still bought Ross’s album.

  • ATL = All Trannies Live

    Ross most got everybody in the industry shook. Won’t nobody speak out against him.

    He still a fake as far as I’m concerned

  • Yayza

  • http://XXLMAG.COM INTERNET BULLY

    RICK ROSS – IT WASNT ME (REMAKE/REMIX) – FEATURING SHAGGY … BUT THEY CAUGHT YOU ON CAMERA…. IT WASNT ME… LMAO… WHOMP WHOMP WHOOOOOOOMP….

    • ChevyBoy

      That’s some funny shit

  • giantstepp

    Rick Ross’s problem is a little more complex than Akons.

    1. He was a law enforcement official. IMO nothing is wrong with that at all. The thing is, he’s gonna be viewed differently now and the dope boy raps and that whole DB image is done. He has no credibility and I dont know if he has enough range to transition into another image.

    2. He looked the public in the eye and lied after being cold busted. He tried to play with our intelligence. As dumb as we act at times, we just aint that dumb Rick Ross. Thats his biggest problem. He shouldve manned up, dealt with it, and kept it moving. Til this day he’d say it wasnt him!

    Akon lied, was busted FOR IT but HE WASNT THE LAW!.He also didnt try to play with our intelligence. He kept his mouth closed and let the shit fade out. Akon also has more range musically. The convict thing was just 1 thing. HeS not backed into a corner with an image the way Rick Ross is.

    • niggafrommemphis

      I suppose your right on akon,he knew the best thing to do was plead the 5th.calling your self “A con” (Akon) is one thing,but flodgin and makin up shit to make you look like a con….see that’s niggas problems like him and ross.Who in their right minds want these kids to grow up and be king pens and car theifs,or better than that,some bold face liars?i don’t want to say hip hop is dead,but it is dying when you got all these ho ass niggas portraying themselves as negative images like that.if ross was boss,he’dbe sittin upwith other bosses.Somebody needs to whoop his ass

    <<< Co-Sign from giantstep and niggafrommemphis. Shit is ridiculous. I’m from Miami (305, let’s get it) and this Rick Ross shit is completely ridiculous. Lied or not (in this case, lied) I still didn’t buy any of the nigga’s albums. Listen to some of his shit, though.

  • Krime

    I think u guys are forgetting something here.. rick ross done already took way too long to respond back 2 this shit.. & da only times this nigga did, he denied it like a bitch again. this niggas probably been in his house crying this whole time. Hes done

  • keith

    i was speedin on the highway, got pull over, and PO-PO RICK ROSS wrote me the ticket!

  • Don Trapacino

    Most of these rappers in their day probably sold a couple 8-balls..maybe dropped a body (probably not)..and all of sudden they’re frontin like they’re the second coming of Al Capone and Pablo Escobar. I know its entertainment, but this shit gets a bit ridiculous. Also, what kind of gangster blabs about all the shit he’s doing…shit is actually kinda retarded..

  • young_fane

    My OG once told me, A nigga only as real as what they bout…. It’s funny how people quick to say, Ross aint live that life… He’s a liar…. Do any of yahll even know this nigga??? Has any of yahll ever ran up on Ross and hoe’d him or somethin??? If not, that makes your “OPINIONS” irelavent because you havent proved shit…. Ok, he was a CO, while I can’t say that would be my job of choice, at the same time, I cant knock his hustle… I aint from where he’s from, I dont know what he went threw to make him make the decision to take that “JOB TITLE”… And yes, that is what it is, a job title, not who u are!!! Pac was a fuckin back up dancer, rappin bout thug life!!! Come on now… If u wanna say ross is wack for lyin bout it, that makes sinse, but I damn near feel him, why he lied… If yo connect comes threw wit some boo boo, U aint bout to tell yo stings, aye, this is some bull shit, but u can buy it anyway… That sound stupid, not real, fake, STUPID!!! LAME ASS HATERS!!! Thats what I call it… DJ kahlid was just on rick ross cd talkin bout, “Ima stand by rick ross for the rest of my life”, then he on the radio talkin that bull shit, like he aint know Ross was a CO…. Thats fake!!! Fa real… LETS HAVE SOME UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE AND SOME FUCKIN INTEGRITY, AND STOP BEING SO JUDGEMENTAL.. REAL SHIT BWOIIII

    • giantstepp

      The difference with 2Pac is he never lied about his past. Ive heard interviews where he talked about trying to sell drugs and being horrible at it so he left it alone. I heard interviews where he embraced being a roadie and back up dancer to get in the game, he never fronted about his past! Rick Ross looked all of us in the eye and lied bruh…a huge difference.

      Its not where you start, but where you go after the start. The cream always rises to the top, and love him or not, Pac rose to the top.

  • http://www.theunderwriters.blogspot.com THE UNDERWRITER

    So Akon is saying that it’s ok to lie, as long as you don’t respond or ignore people who prove that you’re a liar.

    Lie all you want, just focus on music.

  • Yayza

    Some of you cats are fucking insane! We need to throw this fake ass rapper under the bus. All these phonies got to go. We need to let them know we aren’t going to stand for this shit anymore. How the fuck can you think this shit is alright? How the fuck is standing up for the truth being judgemental? Honestly, what the fuck is wrong with some of you? Stand the fuck up for truth son! You aren’t part of hip-hop if you’re ok with anything and everything going on around you as long as some poppin’ club song comes out of it. In hip-hop we question things. You are NOT a hater for being angry that some cat that promotes a criminal lifestyle didn’t even live that shit to begin with. Open your fucking eyes, and realize that this shit is not ok.
