Rick Ross Buys Back The Block
As an artist and entrepreneur, Rick Ross has always fashioned himself a self-made man, willing to take on the odds in order to achieve success. His Carol City neighborhood in Miami helped breed his gritty nature and it’s that same community that keeps him rooted. “I’m one of the few artists that could claim to be self-made. Meaning nothing was given to me.”
Music, football and friendship were all that mattered to Ross growing up. We know where his connection to music led him but it’s coming-of-age in Miami that keeps his life pointed in the right direction. Growing up, he spent time on the football field with friends, working the local car wash and hanging with his buddies at neighborhood spots like Checkers.
Twenty years later, he’s still connected to those childhood friends and the community through ways he probably only imagined as a kid. Through hard work, he’s created his own destiny and experienced all the highs life has to offer. After having seen and done it all, he wanted to go back to that same neighborhood and buy his favorite Checkers.
