As he approaches the 20-year mark of his career, Rick Ross remains one of the most popular and active rappers in hip hop. The 43-year-old reached international fame with his hit single "Hustlin'," which peaked at No. 54 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and he recently published his ninth studio album Rather You Than Me. The album reached the No. 3 spot on the US Billboard 200 as well as the No. 2 spot on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Ross is already working in his upcoming project that is supposed to revisit his debut album called Port of Miami. In other words, Port of Miami II will be a way for him to go back to the style of rapping and writing that brought him worldwide fame.
Enter Hip Hop Boss
William Leonard Roberts II, better known as Rick Ross, Rozay or Renzel, debuted on the scene by releasing Port of Miami in 2006. His first-week sales went north of 187,000 units, and the album peaked at the No. 1 spot of the US Billboard 200 chart. Leveraging his fame, Ross went on to release another No. 1 album, as measured by Billboard in 2008, called Trilla. From that point on, his success snowballed into multi-million sales figures and countless features with some of the most famous rappers and artists in the world. Examples include Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Future, John Legend and more. Although the list of his accomplishments is quite extensive, the self-proclaimed hip hop boss was also a part of a multi-year feud with another giant in the rapping industry, 50 Cent. While their differences never went past diss tracks towards each other, the beef helped Ross increase his fame even further by getting recognition from the fans of 50 Cent and most other hip-hop enthusiasts. Nowadays, however, the rapper is living a peaceful life after overcoming various legal and sponsorship challenges in the past years. He remains one of the most productive and accomplished creators on the rapping scene.
