Rick Ross (whose real name is William Roberts) was born in Carol City, Florida. Later, it was in honor of his city that Rick would name the group he formed. As part of Carol City Cartel, he will begin touring his home state in the mid-90s. But all this will be just preparation for a more serious step.
He inherited his pseudonym from the famous drug lord Ricky Ross, who in the 80s-90s owned the largest cocaine traffic in the United States.
As the artist himself has repeatedly admitted, he was greatly influenced by the work of such artists as Ice Cube, The Notorious B.I.G, JT Money, 2Pac and Trick Daddy. It was thanks to the latter that Ross began his first serious steps on the big stage.
