    I could care less if he is a fake gangster, most artist portray a fake personae. What annoys me is that all of his music sounds the same. All he talks about is money, cars, and other luxuries. But the worst thing is that he needs to take off his shirt all the time. No one wants to see that.

    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.
