It took him long enough, but Rick Ross has finally admitted to his past! After TheSmokingGun.com dug up some old documents containing the Miami rapper’s full government name and social security number, which happened to detail of him being a correctional officer for the state of Florida back in the day, people began to question the rapper’s credibility. And up until recently, the “Boss” (as he calls himself) had neither confirmed nor denounced the allegations:

“Yes, it’s me. I never tried to hide my past. I put my name inside my CDs,” Ross says in the latest issue of Don Diva Magazine. “I never ratted on a nigga. I never prosecuted a nigga. I never locked up a n*gga, that’s first and foremost.”

“I always felt that me being the nigga that I am, I never owed a ni*gga an explanation. When I’m making my music and I’m talking about blow, it’s because I did it. When I say that I’m rich off cocaine, it’s because I did it. Those are the street principals that apply.”

We don’t believe you William, you need more people!
