While his lyrics talk a big game about yachts, chains, and champagne, Rick Ross proved why he’s on top of the charts by getting down to business for a 1:00am -4:00am recording session at TheTrackShack. Most industry insiders know Rick’s huge draw, as Trilla, influenced by Michael Jackson’s Thriller in title and hopes of impact, is passing 630,000 units and Port of Miami, last year’s mega release passing 820,000 unit sales. But, what people don’t know, is Rick’s bad-ass work ethic, to keep the hits coming.

Set to release later this year, Rick’s signature lyrics were in full gear. Working with House Engineer, Peter de Leon, keeping friends and fans at a distance, Rick tore down the walls of iso-booth #1 with blazing statements of life on his street.

Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts on January 21, 1977, is best known as Rick Ro$$, a moniker derived from the name of drug trafficker Freeway Ricky Ross.
