*NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER* “A gripping journey.”—People The highly anticipated memoir from hip-hop icon Rick Ross chronicles his coming of age amid Miami’s crack epidemic, his star-studded controversies and his unstoppable rise to fame. Rick Ross is an indomitable presence in the music industry, but few people know his full story. Now, for the first time, Ross offers a vivid, dramatic and unexpectedly candid account of his early childhood, his tumultuous adolescence and his dramatic ascendancy in the world of hip-hop. Born William Leonard Roberts II, Ross grew up “across the bridge,” in a Miami at odds with the glitzy beaches, nightclubs and yachts of South Beach. In the aftermath of the 1980 race riots and the Mariel boatlift, Ross came of age at the height of the city’s crack epidemic, when home invasions and execution-style killings were commonplace. Still, in the midst of the chaos and danger that surrounded him, Ross flourished, first as a standout high school football player and then as a dope boy in Carol City’s notorious Matchbox housing projects. All the while he honed his musical talent, overcoming setback after setback until a song called “Hustlin’” changed his life forever. From the making of “Hustlin’” to his first major label deal with Def Jam, to the controversy surrounding his past as a correctional officer and the numerous health scares, arrests and feuds he had to transcend along the way, Hurricanes is a revealing portrait of one of the biggest stars in the rap game, and an intimate look at the birth of an artist.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The reality of my life is that I work hard. I came in the rap game yelling Everyday I'm Hustlin' and that wasn't just the hook on a song. I wasn't lying then, and shit hasn't changed much since. Show money is the primary revenue stream for most artists, but for me, it's just one of many streams. #2 I bought a John Deere 5090E utility tractor, which I needed to cut my grass during the lockdown. I also bought a top-of-the-line lawn mower, which I called my shiteaters. The shiteaters are good for the edges and hard-to-reach spots by the ponds. But The Promise Land is too big to get everything done on them. #3 I had to make different types of moves to avoid the same fate as Holyfield. I bought a tractor that would allow me to cut my grass, and I was going to be my own landscaping company. I was going to be like water, no matter what challenges this pandemic presented. #4 I had the idea of creating an amphitheater at Roberts Field, a softball field I owned. I would host summer concerts there, showcasing up-and-coming artists. The only problem was that the sheriff's office was waiting for someone to complain about the noise.
A walk through a young African American entrepreneur who relates and tackles todays social problems. Documented regrets and reflections of a far from normal childhood experience mixed with modern day views on being bullied, self-consciousness and the popular insert: What's Love.
