Hip hop’s ultimate come-up story was that of Rick Ross, the Miami rapper who defied the odds to become the biggest rapper in the game. Scoring an anthem with “Hustlin,'” Ross gained the attention of the game when he began feuding with 50 Cent. Taking out hip hop’s bully, Rick Ross moved into the spotlight.
Health issues stopped Rick Ross from releasing his album in 2011, but it was still a good year for him. Expanding the roster of Maybach Music and landing a distribution deal/partnership with Warner Bros. Records showed Rick Ross’ business acumen. By 2012, Rick Ross had a partnership with Reebok.
After uttering “I put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it, I took her home and enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it” in 2013, Rick Ross no longer had a partnership with Reebok. Meek Mill, Slim Thug, Ace Hood, and Rocko have all come to Rick Ross’ defense. According to FootWear News, Reebok spoke out saying Rick Ross is a great guy, but has stupid advisors around him.
