Rick Ross Opens Up About Being A Correctional Officer
Rick Ross recently sat down with Rolling Stone following the release of his highly successful album ‘God Forgives, I Don’t.’ The self-professed G had a rare moment as he opened up about working for the Florida Department of Corrections as an officer, after his best friend got sent to jail for 10 years over illegal substances…
He said that after his friend got sent down, he saw it as a way to “wash my hands" off the situation and get his life back on the right road. Rozay said: "This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner. 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. 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 f***ing corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere."
The ‘Bawse’ also admitted that he still loves cannabis, saying “I'm most definitely an avid user ... it helps me chill out." However, he revealed that he thinks the smoking may have been the cause of his seizures that he suffered from last year.
