A few year ago during the beef with 50 Cent , Rick Ross’ credibility was brought into question with rumours of a Correctional Officer past. These rumours were at first denied but then admitted to on his ‘Deeper Than Rap’ Album. Well now Ross has been talking to Rolling Stone about his life as a C.O and what his intentions were when taking up such a job far away from his public image as a one time struggling guy from the streets. Listen to what Ross had to say:
For the first time, Ross talks about his past life as a corrections officer – an opportunity, he says, to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin: “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.”

Speaking with AHH
“The answers in this Rolling Stone article were BS, this is scripted to make it look like he had some struggle,” Freeway Ricky Ross told AllHipHop.com. “No one tells you to go be a correctional officer before all the other jobs that build our community, especially not when their son just got convicted for a long sentence.”
I think its time Freeway Rick Ross should let this case go, It’s been going on for far too long and it makes him look bitter, especially the fact that his name pops up with a statement anytime Ricky Rozay speaks.
