William Leonard Roberts II, popularly known as Rick Ross, has built a musical empire that has heavily impacted the game.
With well over ten years in the game, he has gifted us with numerous hits such as “Hustlin,” “Aston Martin Music," and “Diced Pineapples.”
Ross has undoubtedly been able to establish a brand much bigger than himself. When you hear supermodel Jessica Gomes’ introductory “M-M-M-Maybach Music,” you know an instant luxurious vibe is about to follow.
He’s worked alongside other top charting artists such as Chris Brown, Drake, and Jay-Z, just to name a few and has been recognized for his musical contributions and achievements with numerous BET awards and Grammy nominations. When he isn’t making music, you can catch him on the movie screen with his latest cameo in the hit movie, Superfly.
Aside from his musical career, he upholds his “boss” moniker with his public investments in the Wingstop and Checkers/Rally's fast food chains. He can be seen actively incorporating them with his musical journey by creating a “Checkers vs Wingstop” tour and has even brought in his celebrity friends like DJ Khaled to stop by to buy food.
Ross’ imprint in the industry is undeniable and he continues to stay consistent with everything that he does. He continues to stay on top with his music, rocking several festival stages, shows and concerts. As he gets ready for his ONE Musicfest performance, he has announced the release of his new album, “Port of Miami 2”, the next installment to the Port of Miami series on August 9!
