Rick Ross Covers Rolling Stone, Talks Weed, Chick-Fil-A & Being a Corrections Officer

Rucuss staffAugust 15, 2012

Rick Ross let it all hang out, literally.

Ross covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine topless. His large tattooed belly is on display for the world to see. But that’s not a surprise to fans because the Miami rapper is known to strip down during performances.

The cover seems fitting for Rozay since his latest album, God Forgives, I Don’t, debuted atop the Billboard charts with his best first week ever (218,000 copies sold). The Bawse opened in the magazine about being a corrections officer, his weed habit, Chick-Fil-A and his health scares.

Rick Ross RS Rick Ross Covers Rolling Stone: Talks Weed, Chicken & Being a Corrections Officer

Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.

On working as a corrections officer after his friend was sentenced to 10 years for drug trafficking:

“This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude. Suddenly I’m talking to him over federal phone calls. Hearing the way it was building, I knew I couldn’t take nothing for granted. My homey’s father was a huge influence on my life, too . . . He was the one who was like, ‘Yo, go get a job somewhere, man. Go be a fireman. Or go be a f–king corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.

Ross suggests that the seizures he suffered late last year were probably the result of smoking too much weed:

I’m most definitely an  avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it. I call it green caviar.  It’s like a short vacation – it helps me chill out. And people really love it  when I chill out, because I can really be a dickhead.

On if he’d boycott Chick-fil-A:

Chick-fil-A obviously took their stand. That’s their right – the same way the pro-gay people are taking their stand. I believe everybody got the right to live  their own life the way they want to. [So does that mean he’d support a  Chick-fil-A boycott?] ‘Naw. I love that spicy chicken.’
