Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts II on January 28, 1976, in Clarksdale, Mississippi, is an American rapper, songwriter, and record executive. He first gained major recognition with his debut single “Hustlin'” in 2006, which led to a bidding war among record labels, resulting in his signing with Def Jam Recordings.

His debut album, “Port of Miami” (2006), debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, featuring hits like “Hustlin'” and “Push It.” Ross quickly established himself as a major figure in the hip-hop industry with his deep, authoritative voice and vivid lyrical portrayals of street life.

Rick Ross continued his success with subsequent albums such as “Trilla” (2008), “Deeper Than Rap” (2009), and “Teflon Don” (2010), which included popular tracks like “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast)” and “Aston Martin Music.” Known for his luxurious lifestyle and business acumen, Ross founded the record label Maybach Music Group (MMG) in 2009, signing prominent artists like Meek Mill, Wale, and Omarion.

Throughout his career, Ross has faced various controversies and health challenges but has remained a prominent and influential figure in hip-hop. His ability to consistently release chart-topping albums and his entrepreneurial ventures, including partnerships with brands and investments in the food industry, have solidified his status as a multifaceted mogul in the music industry.
