Despite taking several hits throughout his career, Rick Ross is still one of the most-popular rappers in the game. He has portrayed the role of a “boss” for several years. In 2008, he released his hit single, “The Boss.” Following the release of that song, it was revealed Ross had prior employment as a correctional officer.
Even with the label of a cop, Rick Ross went on to become one of rap’s most dominating figures. Less than a year later, Ross went head-to-head with 50 Cent and won. This came after 50 Cent took a picture with Ross’ son and dated his baby’s mother. In the end, Ross befriended 50’s best friend, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Looking back on all of his accomplishments, Rick Ross describes it all in one word, unstoppable. Ross has been a mainstream figure for five years. While still signed to Def Jam, a bidding war between three record labels took place over him. Rick Ross said all of this proves he is unstoppable. No matter what is said about him, his songs continue to receive radio play and his albums still sell.
