Rick Ross

This is how you know the rap game has changed: In 2008, photos and documentation emerged online showing that Rick Ross, the Miami rapper whose music, image and even name were inspired by the drug trade, used to be a corrections officer. Ross denied the allegations at first, but finally owned up when the evidence became too overwhelming to refute. Not that it mattered: Years ago, this kind of dust-up would've ended a rapper's career; today, Ross has gone on to become one of the biggest, best and boldest MCs in hip hop.
