American rapper from Carol City in northern Miami-Dade County, Florida. He is also deeply affliated with the Haitian community (Zoe Pound). He took his rap name from Los Angeles drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross, who ran one of the largest cocaine distribution networks in the country during the ‘1980s and early ’90s. He is signed with Slip-N-Slide, which as of 2006, is distributed under Def Jam Records. Port of Miami, Ross’ debut album, was released on August 8, 2006, with the lead single “Hustlin’” peaking at #7 on the hip-hop chart and #54 on the Billboard Hot 100. A remix of the single featuring Young Jeezy and Jay-Z also achieved some popularity in digital downloads . Ross has stated that his inspirations for rapping are Ice Cube, The Notorious B.I.G, JT Money, 2pac, and Trick Daddy. He is married and he and his wife have a daughter. Ross bears an uncanny resemblance to street fighter and IntheVIP.com frontman, Kimbo Slice.
