Born William Leonard Roberts II in Mississippi, he moved to Miami at a young age and attended Albany State University on a football scholarship before focusing his energies on his rhyming skills. Rick Ross made a name for himself by touring and performing alongside his mentor, Trick Daddy, in the early 2000s. He was signed to Trick Daddy's label, Slip-n-Slide, and released his debut album, Port of Miami, in 2006. The album broke records when it debuted at #1. Rolling Stone magazine hailed the debut disc as the rap album of the summer. The album featured two hit singles, the Platinum certified "Hustlin", and the top ten rap track "Push It". The album was certified Gold and Ross became an overnight rap sensation. Rick Ross tour dates were the hottest ticket of Summer, 2011 and he quickly went back into the studio to record the follow-up.

Ross released his sophomore set, Trilla, to similar fanfare in 2008. The album also debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Gold. It featured the Platinum single, "The Boss", and earned the rapper the #4 position on MTV's list of the "Hottest MCs in the Game". Rick Ross tour dates were scheduled across the country to promote the disc and he wrote rhymes for his third album Deeper Than Rap. Ross also created his own imprint, Maybach Music Group, which is distributed through Warner Bros. Records. The label had a #1 album on their hands when Ross released Deeper Than Rap in 2009. Ross was quick to follow-up in 2010 with Teflon Don. This album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, his first album not to debut at #1. For the disc, Ross earned a nomination at The Source Awards for "Man of the Year", and he garnered a nomination at the BET Awards 2011 for "Best Male Hip Hop Artist".

Rick Ross is the latest mogul to emerge in the Hip-Hop world, with a record label, #1 albums, and Platinum plaques to his credit. In addition, he is recording a collabo album with Diddy entitled Bugatti Boy and working on his sixth album, God Forgives, I Don't, which are both scheduled for release in 2011. Rick Ross tour dates and performances have been scheduled periodically throughout 2011. Most notably, Rick Ross scheduled a performance at the BET Awards, in June, 2011.
