Hip-Hop Rumors: Rick Ross Finally Speaks About His Correctional Officer Past


Rozay is covering the newest issue of Rolling Stone, and for the first time ever, he speaks about his correctional officer past. Ross says that he had to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years in jail for drug trafficking. Check out what he told the magazine below:

“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 f###### corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”

So, he didn’t really talk about it that much, but at least he gave us a look into the reasoning behind it. Maybe he will speak about it more freely.

Rozay also spoke about the recent theater shooting in Colorado and said that it was “such a cowardly act” – so does this mean he’s in favor of gun control? Check out what he said below:

“I think we all have a right to bear arms, whichever amendment that is.” Even assault rifles? He shrugs. “I got ‘em.”

Ross seems to be in favor of free speech of all kinds, and even defended Chik-fil-A’s recent stands against gay people:

“Chick-fil-A obviously took their stand. That’s their right – the same way the pro-gay people are taking their stand. I believe everybody got the right to live their own life the way they want to.” So does that mean he’d support a Chick-fil-A boycott?:

“Naw. I love that spicy chicken.”

Does anybody even still care about his correctional officer past anymore? Are you satisfied with his explanation?
