Former drug trafficker turned author of Untold Autobiography Rick
Ross alleged that hip-hop is a government weapon.
“I believe that what they’ve done is that they’ve taken hip-hop and made it glorious to be a drug dealer,” explained Ross. “You know when I sold drugs, I hid. I didn’t want anybody to know I sold drugs, but now, they’ve got these guys who’ve never sold drugs.” Ross then brought up how the rapper Rick Ross, who worked as a corrections officer and stole the former drug dealer’s identity.
“The message that it tells our kids is that if you go out, sell drugs, then you can become a great rock star… and never go to prison,” noted Ross. “That’s a false message to be giving people who feel hopeless.”
When asked if he was angry at rapper Rick Ross for stealing his identity, the real Rick Ross says he’s “angry at the whole culture.” Ross says he’s not really upset at the rapper because he doesn’t believe the rapper understands that he’s a pawn in a much larger game.
Ross noted that it’s harder for him to get into schools and teach kids an anti-drug message than it is for a rapper to reach kids.
