Rick Ross Reacts To Released Footage As A Correctional Officer

Rick Ross finds himself in the crosshairs of social media personality 1090 Jake, who recently stirred the pot by leaking footage of Ross during his days as a correctional officer in Florida.

The leaked video, which surfaced on Tuesday (April 16), showcases Ross participating in an academy event for the Florida Department of Corrections. In the footage, Ross can be seen marching in formation alongside a group of cadets, engaged in chants.

In response to 1090 Jake’s attempt to expose him, Ross fired back with a dismissive tone, addressing the social media figure and referring to him as “the other White boy” while urging him to mind his own business.

Ross’ past as a correctional officer first came to light in 2007 when rumors circulated about his previous employment. Initially denying the claims, Ross eventually came clean after documents surfaced confirming his tenure as a C.O. from December 1995 to June 1997.

Reflecting on his brief stint as a correctional officer during a 2022 interview, Ross admitted that he didn’t last long in the role, citing personal reasons and the influence of a friend who suggested the job.

“I didn’t really get to make it to the prison,” Ross expounded when pushed for details. “You have to go through training and all that and I didn’t last long. I may have last four months before they said I….You know, I was a little tardy.”

“One of my big homies had just got in trouble and a lot of things were going on,” Ross said when asked why he got into that job. “He just suggested it.”


One document, purportedly bearing Ross’s (real name William Roberts) signature, is dated December 29, 1995, while another shows him submitting his resignation on June 2, 1997.

Additionally, there’s an alleged Certificate of Appreciation dated September 7, 1996, recognizing his service as a “perfect attendance employee.”

1090 Jake, known for his knack for uncovering information about rappers, gang affiliates, and other online personalities, unearthed these documents in defense of Drake, who has been engaged in a public feud with Rick Ross in recent days.

“In response to his repeated references to @champagnepapi as a Whiteboy, I’ve decided to bring this to light,” he wrote in the caption. “You all interested in seeing this footage? He claims he only lasted four months, but the paperwork shows employment from ’95 to ’97 with perfect attendance. Let me know.”


In 2008, following the leak of documents linking him to a period of employment at the South Florida Reception Centre, he stated: “I’ve never attempted to conceal my past. I’ve prominently displayed my name inside my CDs. My company has my Social Security number. I could have used a company name… I’ve experienced both highs and lows, and that’s what has shaped me into who I am.

“I’ve never betrayed anyone. I’ve never pursued legal action against anyone. I’ve never incarcerated anyone, and that’s of utmost importance to me. I’ve always believed that, being the person I am, I never owed anyone an explanation.

“When I’m creating my music and I’m referencing narcotics, it’s because I’ve lived it. When I boast about my wealth derived from cocaine, it’s because I’ve experienced it. These are the principles of the streets that I abide by.”
