In 2000, Rick Ross threw his hat into the hip-hop game in South Florida. Ross was the first artist ever signed to P. Diddy’s management company. The Grammy Award-nominated Ross worked with the likes of Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, and Lil’ Wayne, releasing 10 strong hip-hop albums. Ross has courted plenty of controversy, including dropping a line in a 2014 Rocko about slipping Molly in ladies’ drinks. Even though Ross apologized and claiming he wasn’t glorifying rape, Rocko wound up dropping that verse from the tune. Oh, Rick Ross.
