Rap Artist Rick Ross & Friends are set to perform in Norfolk, VA at Chartway Arena on Saturday October 7, 2023.
William Leonard Roberts II, better known as Rick Ross, is an American rapper, songwriter and entrepreneur. His 2006 debut studio album, Port of Miami, reached No.1 in the US albums chart, featuring the singles ‘Hustlin’’ and ‘Push It’. Ross has had a career-long streak of albums reaching the Top 10 in the US, with Rather Than Me charting at No. 3 and Port of Miami 2 peaking at No. 2. He has received four Grammy Award nominations and adorned the cover of Rolling Stone twice.
Miami rapper Rick Ross knows a thing or two about music. In 2006, Ross’ “Port of Miami” debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 albums chart and made “Hustlin'” a breakout hit that had music lovers singing, “every day I’m hustling, hustling, hustling.” No one-hit wonder, the Grammy-Nominated rapper stayed true to his words, founding Maybach Music Group in 2009 and making Forbes list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings in 2017.
Fifteen years after he first hit the charts, Ross stands atop a growing empire, a boss, a true entrepreneur with a vast reach and an unstoppable drive.
Friends call him “Rozay” (pronounced rosé). The name came to him when he was just a young dreamer, admiring VIPs and celebrities and their sparkling bottles while partying at Prince’s Glam Slam Club on Washington Avenue in Miami’s South Beach before Rick “The Boss” Ross could afford rosé champagne.
The moniker has served him well. Forget wishing. Today, Ross is a certified VIP. He has released 10 studio albums and long been an ambassador for Luc Belaire’s signature rosé premium sparkling wines and champagnes. Some special edition bottles feature an image of his face. Ross has authored two books: “Hurricanes: A Memoir” in 2020 and “The Perfect Day to Boss Up: A Hustler’s Guide to Building Your Empire” (available Sept. 7). Oh, and he owns more than 25 Wingstop franchises.
