Rick Ross Casually Admits CO Past He Denied for Years Was True


When I was writing

the "Mastermind" lyrical breakdown

I pointed out that Rick Ross seemed to be very sideways admitting that he actually was a correctional officer throughout the album, although he wasn't coming right out and saying it:

"That's why I had to play my part, nigga / That wasn't me, it was just a job, nigga." - "Rich is Gangsta

In fact, I believe I compared it to

Queen Latifah appearing on "Same Love"

....so, did she just come out as gay? Or....still no?  

Well, today we got confirmation that water is indeed wet, peanut butter is made from peanuts and Rick Ross did indeed used to be a correctional officer.

"That particular line most definitely referred to me being a CO."

Wow, ok, great then. Finally we can get past this shit and just admit that if we listen to Rick Ross it's because his music offers up an escapist fantasy. He spent years - six years now! - denying what everyone already knew, it feels good to just get it out in the open and move on. 

And it shouldn't really change anything, I can't imagine anyone with even basic critical thinking skills has believed everything Ross raps about is true all this time, and that's fine. I don't expect "Terminator 2" to be true either, it's still entertaining as fuck to watch the T-1000 blow shit up. 

But wait...what's this? 

"Anywhere I go, when I step in the room, I put it down. People know it's authentic right here. They know it's real. So it was nothing that I was personally threatened with. I was just ready to move on. Let's go get this money. Let's make this music."

So....that thing Ross insisted was a lie for years he's now admitting he lied about and was completely true...but he's also authentic and completely real and everything else he raps about is verified? Sigh, the  growing split personality disorder that is William Leonard Roberts II continues. Guys, I'm beginning to think maybe he doesn't actually

Well, I'm glad we could all go through this together and basically end up exactly where we started. Oh well, "
