Coming off the success of God Forgives I Don’t Rick Ross answers some pretty heavy questions from his love of “Green Caviar” to his former job of being a correctional officer. On his love for “Mary” Ross even came clean and admited that the green could have been the triggering cause of his seizures.
“I’m most definitely an avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it. I call it green caviar. It’s like a short vacation – it helps me chill out. And people really love it when I chill out, because I can really be a d%ckhead.”
On his job as a Correctional Officer:
“For the first time, Ross talks about his past life as a corrections officer – an opportunity, he says, to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin: “This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude. 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,” says Ross. “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 fu%king corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”
