Miami Natives: Rick Ross

by Terry Bender

We’re launching a question and answer segment with many of the successful Miami area natives.  Today, we’re starting off with a quick biography of an area legend who goes by the name of Rick Ross.

His birth name was William Leonard Roberts II…..

but he’s best known as Rick Ross, the rapper who has such hits as “Magnificent” and “Hustlin.”  He’s a native of Carol City, and at 300 pounds, he’s an intimidating figure.  He also is a big part of the movement that put Miami on the map from a musical standpoint, along with other natives Trick Daddy, Trina, and Luke Campbell.  Nowadays, several Miami area artists are on the map, such as DJ Khaled, Flo Rida, JT Money, and Pitbull.

We hope to have our question and answer session with Rick Ross in the near future….stay tuned.
