    KeatonXZX what people want to point out is that he is no hardcore gangster, no hardcore cocaine dealer that he pretends to be like and the fact that he used to work as a correctional officer proves it even more. Hell, even the real Rick Ross have been saying that this Rick Ross is just a clown living of his name.

    @ antishape: Eine der grauenhaftesten "Rezensionen", die ich je gelesen habe, und eines der jaemmerlichsten Beispiele dafuer, dass im Internet heutzutage jeder Dulli seine Schmierfinkerei irgendwo reinrotzen kann und sich fuer einen Schriftsteller oder Journalisten haelt. Ich hoffe, du laesst das mit dem Schreiben sein und gehst lieber schreinern.
