A Shirtless Rick Ross Covers Rolling Stone; Talks Health Issues & Why He Was A Corrections Officers
Big belly rude boy! A shirtless Rick Ross covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. On the cover, Ross kept it causal in blue jeans accessorized with a Fendi belt for his first cover of the publication. Inside, the Bawse talks about his health issues including the seizures he had and how one of his friends 10-year jail sentenced for trafficking cocaine and heroin helped inspired him to become a corrections officer. Below are some excerpts:
Ross suggests that the seizures he suffered late last year were probably the result of smoking too much weed: “I’m most definitely an avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it. I call it green caviar. It’s like a short vacation – it helps me chill out. And people really love it when I chill out, because I can really be a dickhead.”
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.”
