NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? THANK EVERYONE WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE!!! ?

Rick Ross admitted that he didn’t read his own book because it’s based on his life, therefore, he experienced it first-hand. “I think it’s a triumph. Everybody don’t admit rising from failure,” he said. The book details the “Gold Rose” rapper’s drug abuse and the one time when sh*t hit the ceiling and he had to change his life around.

“When I woke up in the hospital and I had so many people around me, so many homies, it felt like I was in V.I.P. or some sh*t,” he said. “But it was more like, ‘Damn, we gotta do some special things.’ That mixed with the things I was drinking, the other drugs I was doing, and on top of not resting. [I don’t think] one particular thing would have killed me. But everything combined?”
