Rick Ross Pulls a Buster Douglas

Of all the rappers on his fight list, 50 Cent met his match in Rick Ross. Fif retaliated against "Officer Ricky" by ripping on his former corrections gig in a beef that allegedly started over a salty look at the BET Awards. Diss records were dropped, and 50 took a few shots at Rozay's home life, but "The Bawse" ended up prevailing over the rap giant. The drama helped promote his Deeper Than Rap release to a No. 1 debut.
