Rick Ross Lyrics – All Songs & Albums

141 American Rapper

William Leonard Roberts II (born January 28, 1976) was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi, United States. He is an American rapper. He is professionally known as Rick Ross. His commanding vocal presence, larger-than-life persona, and evocative lyrical storytelling have left an indelible mark on the genre. Ross weaves the tapestry of street life and underground economies into a compelling narrative of ascent from adversity to opulence, frequently portraying a life characterized by affluence, opulence, and extravagance.

Before unveiling his debut single, "Hustlin'" in March 2006, Ross was the subject of an intense industry bidding war, fielding enticing offers from heavyweights like Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment and Irv Gotti's Murder Inc. In the end, he inked a multimillion-dollar deal with rap mogul Jay-Z under Def Jam Recordings. This partnership catapulted him to stardom. In August of that same year, Ross unleashed his inaugural studio album, "Port of Miami," which spectacularly claimed the number one spot on the prestigious Billboard 200 chart, a feat he replicated with his subsequent albums, "Trilla" (2008) and "Deeper Than Rap" (2009). His fourth album, "Teflon Don" (2010), birthed the chart-topping hit "Aston Martin Music" featuring Drake and Chrisette Michele, a track that achieved triple platinum certification from the RIAA.

Beyond his solo endeavors, Ross played a pivotal role as a founding member of the hip-hop collective Triple C's, alongside Florida's eminent rappers Gunplay and Torch, in 2005. He also took the entrepreneurial leap, establishing the record label Maybach Music Group (MMG) in 2009, where he successfully signed and nurtured talents such as Meek Mill, Wale, French Montana, and Omarion, among others. Maybach Music Group ventured into collaborative efforts with Def Jam and later Epic Records, amplifying the impact of Ross's subsequent studio albums: "God Forgives, I Don't" (2012), "Mastermind" and "Hood Billionaire" (2014), "Black Market" (2015), "Rather You Than Me" (2017), "Port of Miami 2" (2019), and the acclaimed "Richer Than I Ever Been" in December 2021. Ross's eminence extends to the accolades he has garnered, with nine Grammy Award nominations to his name. He was bestowed with the title of "Man of the Year" by hip-hop magazine The Source for consecutive years in 2010 and 2011, and MTV crowned him "The Hottest MC in the Game" in 2012, cementing his legacy as a hip-hop icon.
