When 50 Cent claimed that Rick Ross used to be a correctional officer, the Bawse did not confirm or deny the accusation, but now the Maybach Music head is singing a different tune.

Rozay graces the cover of this month’s Rolling Stone magazine and finally admitted to being a correctional officer, explaining that he took the job after his childhood friend caught a 10 year prison sentence for trafficking cocaine and heroin.

“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,” said Ross. “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 fucking corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”

Ross also addresses some possible causes of the series of seizures he suffered last year. Naturally, the boss blamed the seizures on smoking more than his share of 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.”
