The sexiness that is Rick Ross finally admits to being a corrections officer. A few years back nemesis 50 cent outed the “gangsta” rapper for lying about his past and wanting to have a tougher appeal. Well, finally Rick Ross has decided to fess up on his correctional past.
He admits he began working as a corrections officer when 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.
“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 f–king corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”
