For The First Time EVER, Rick Ross Speaks On Being A Corrections Officer
Rick Ross will grace the cover of Rolling Stone‘s Fall Music issue, and for the first time ever, he opens up about his former career as a corrections officer. The issue hits newsstands August 17th, but you can see what he had to say about his past.
For the first time, Ross talks about his past life as a corrections officer – an opportunity, he says, to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin: “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 fucking corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.
