Throughout his career, Rick Ross made bold moves and they paid off, for the most part. No, Rick Ross never went platinum and has only come close a few times, but he ran the game for years. With one line, Rick Ross went from being a regional rapper from Miami to a leader in the game.
In January 2009, Rick Ross released “Mafia Music” and the song included a line poking fun at 50 Cent’s baby mama drama. A year prior, 50 Cent “warned” Rick Ross about being close to Fat Joe and DJ Khaled. By then, the two were trading disses and Rick Ross was getting the better of him.
Rick Ross proved to be a stronger opponent than 50 Cent could have imagined, linking up with every foe 50 ever had. He pulled in support from Game, Fat Joe, and Ja Rule to aid him in his beef, 50 Cent responded by sharing his baby mama’s sextape. Now, 50 Cent is being sued for this and he is preparing a suit against Rick Ross if he loses, to which Ross said 50 is only doing it to stay relevant.
