Rick Ross: Not A Cop

Rapper Rick Ross, whose stage name is inspired by a famous drug trafficker, has denied he is a former prison security guard but evidence points toward a different conclusion.

TheSmokingGun.com recently obtained records from the Florida Department of Corrections that shows a man with Ross’s real name (William Leonard Roberts) and Social Security number worked as a corrections officer from December 1995 to June 1997.

Ross was recently shown a picture of a what was purported to be him when he was 19 years old, shaking hands with an official at a Department of Corrections ceremony.

Ross told the interviewer it wasn’t true and the image was photoshopped. "If this s*** was real don’t you think they would have more specifics, like dates and everything?" he told AllHipHop.com.
