In the past the Maybach CEO Rick Ross has denied his past job after allegations flew during his beef with 50 Cent that he was a correctional officer before coming a rapper.
In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone Mag, the ‘I Wish You Would’ rapper opened up about his decision to trade in his gangster lifestyle to become a correctional prison officer after his best friend was jailed for 10 years.
“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.”
“This was my best friend, who I ate penaut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude.”
Looking back, “the God Forgives, I Don’t” creator revealed how he ditched the street life for a cleaner path.
“My homey’s father was a huge influence on my life…He was the one who was like, ‘Yo, go get a job somewhere, man,” he said.
“Go be a fireman, Or go be a fu*king corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere,” he added.
Rozay even talked about the recent Colorado theater shooting:
“Such a cowardly act. I think we all have a right to bear arms, whichever amendment that is.” (Even assault rifles? He shrugs.) “I got ’em.”
And on freedom of speech on gay marriage issue:
“Chick-fil-A obviously took their stand. That’s their right – the same way the pro-gay people are taking their stand. I believe everybody got the right to live their own life the way they want to.” (So does that mean he’d support a Chick-fil-A boycott?) “Naw. I love that spicy chicken.”
Confession’s are just good for the soul. The issue hits stands on Friday!
