Glasses & A Beard
Yeah so...in case you didn't hear...Rick Ross the Boss used to be William Roberts the Corrections Officer.
I wasn't really planning on saying shit because I didn't really care, or believe in buddy like that in the first place. But, in case you're wondering what the big hoopla over this is...
Its not that Rick Ross isn't the big drug kingpin turned rapper that he presented himself as. Because quite frankly, any nigga who believed that bullshit doesn't deserve to talk out loud.
Its moreso that he lied when asked about it...
and that at the end of the day...this nigga was the PO-LEESE! This dude worked for the devil dawg. He worked for the muthafuckas that lock up the kind of nigga he represents.
I don't think folks would have cared if some photos of Raawsss working at Wal-Mart popped up. But to be a cop? Not a snitch, but a cop.
But, ya'll know me. I never believed in his bullshit for one minute. I'm not denying that the man wasn't capable of putting out a dope song here and there...nor am I trying to be on some "Im smarter than you" shit for simply taking notice of the obvious. But, I am making it a point to say that I never believed in his bullshit because I know, from face-to-face conversations with many people ranging from ages 13 to 33, alot of folks did. Plus, I put nothing past a dude who walk around with the name of and inherits the life a dude who is STILL LIVING!
But I mean, when you really just look at the situation in hindsight the shit ain't hard to see. I mean, I knew that Ross, er, Mr. Roberts went to Albany State University and played football. He got hurt and couldn't play anymore. Now, ask yourself...what do most big football playing dudes do when they get hurt? They enter law enforcement through becoming a C.O., a cop, bodyguard or security guard or something. Hense, we see Mr. Roberts career path. I ain't knocking the hustle...just be real dawg.
The second thing is...like for real, when you look at him, Ross has ALL the characteristics of an undercover cop man. Look at his ass, Glasses & A Beard.
This pic says it all...Glasses, Beard...and some got damn coffee! COP! COP! COP!
Do a Google Images search on Rick Ross...you'll be hard pressed to not find a picture of him out of character/disguise.
Glasses & A Beard...ain't that what every undercover cop wears when out on assignment?
I mean, Glasses & A Beard is the classic disguise! Even beyond the cops. Think about, what image came to mind when you was little when you thought of the "bad guys" or the "robbers"...yeah, that's what I thought.
Another thing that should have given him away is how buddy just popped up out of nowhere. Ain't that how most undercover cops show up...from out of nowhere? Claiming to know guys ("Noriega owe me a hunnid favors!") and living lavishly. Hanging with the right people to look cool or hanging with other mahfuggas that you really don't know, but look cool.
So, now the question is...since his cover has been blown...what happens. Will they kill him (not literally, but will he become a career dead MC)? Or will he go into the witness protection program like Scott Storch?
Oh yeah, one more thing...I couldn't resist. Peep Ross' interaction with the cops at the beginning and end of the vid. Hahahahaha. He knows their language.
Ok...last joke, I just thought of this one. This dude calls himself the Boss right. He must mean as in Big BOSS Man. *drum kicks*
Since I made this post...people have been asking "is it over for Rick Ross?" Nah, not really...in a world where folks are still buying and supporting guys who pee on children...a lying rapper still stands a chance.
