Tia Kemp Blasts Rick Ross, Speaks on New Book

AllHipHop Staff

Rick Ross may be celebrated for recently topping the Billboard album chart, but the rapper’s demeanor and image away from the mic has become fodder for a newly released book from one of the mothers of his children.

The page-turner, titled Tia's Diary: Deeper Than Rap, chronicles Tiallondra Kemp’s life as well as her relationship with Ross.

Kemp’s foray into literature came via the Miami-based rapper’s rival, 50 Cent, an ally who opened a door that would have remained closed had she remained with Ross.

“50 reached out to my attorney. I told him that I wanted to do a book and he made it happen,” Kemp shared with AllHipHop.com. “He got me my publishing deal and everything. He really helped me a lot. Rick Ross would’ve never gave me this opportunity.”

For Tia's Diary, Kemp revealed that Ross was less than an ideal person outside the world of music as she came to realize.

“I think that everybody know that he’s a fake and he’s a fraud and I think it’s a lot of things that’s in the book that would explain why he’s that type of person, you know,” Kemp said. “He was an abusive person, you know. And he’s a deadbeat dad. He’s battered his first baby mama and the only things that he’s done is put his hands on women…he’s never been arrested but for battery for on his baby mom. Right now, he has an open case for carrying a concealed firearm, but the firearm was registered to him. And the reason he caught the charge is because his concealed weapon license was revoked for the battery he had against his first baby mom."

The release of Tia's Diary comes after Ross sat atop the Billboard 200 chart after selling 158,000 copies of his latest album, also titled Deeper Than Rap, in its first week of release last month.

Ross’ former girlfriend commented on the rapper’s neglect of their child and went as far as labeling the rapper as “not a good father.”

“I wouldn’t consider him as a great father. I’m quite sure he loves his son, but he’s not supporting his son. He’s not in his son’s life. And that’s what it’s about,” she said. “You know, it’s not about money. It’s about being there for your child, you know, and showing them love.”
