Ross, 36, is a former Miami-Dade County corrections officer who hit it big six years ago with his rookie album, Port of Miami.

The singer of Aston Martin Music is managed by Sean Diddy Combs‘ Ciroc entertainment and is working on a new CD.

Ross, who changed his real name (Williams Leonard Roberts) to famed drug dealer Rick Ross‘, is no stranger to controversy and violence. In 2008, he was arrested on gun and drug charges and accused of being a member of a Carol City street gang.

And in February, a man was found dead in a house that Ross owns in Miami. The victim had a long rap sheet and Ross wasn’t a suspect.

According to public records, Ross lives in a $1.2 million house in the Long Lake Ranches neighborhood of Davie, just west of Fort Lauderdale.
