Rick Ross

The self-proclaimed “Biggest Boss” Rick Ross knows all about building an empire. His grandiose raps—and personality to match—have made him one of the biggest MCs in the world and a true household name. Ross quickly amassed a rabid fanbase along with cosigns from DJ Khaled, Trick Daddy, and Trina after paying his dues on the underground rap scene in Miami. He finally graduated to a major deal on Slip-n-Slide Records under Def Jam; Ross' vivid rhymes painted a picture of a corrupt and cutthroat city, ones that read as though they were ripped from the pages of a Scarface script. His lyricism gained him the respect of legendary MCs like Nas and longtime friend JAY-Z. Five of the GRAMMY-nominated MC's albums have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Ross built something from nothing, expanding his brand from a lavish rapper to an even more successful entrepreneur—proving that his career is deeper than rap.
