Rick Ross was on the cover of the most recent issue of Rolling Stone, and in his interview discusses why he became a CO.
MMG’s Rick Ross is on the cover of the latest issue ofÂ Rolling Stone magazine. Â Â The cover, which features an often seen topless, Rozay,Â comes on the heels of his recent album, God Forgives, I Don’tÂ sitting atop the charts, and with MMG’s Self Made Vol. 2 still holding strong.
In an excerpt from his interview with Rolling Stone, Ross addresses why he became a correctional officer, which is a hotly contested topic when speaking about the rapper:
For the first time, Ross talks about his past life as a corrections officer â€“ an opportunity, he says, to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin:Â “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”.
