Rick Ross was born in Coahoma County, Mississippi, and raised in Carol City, Florida, near Miami. After graduating from Miami Carol City Senior High School, he later attended the historically black college Albany State University on a football scholarship. He derived his stage name from the drug trafficker ”Freeway” Rick Ross, to whom he has no connection. After being signed to Suave House Records, former label for rap duo 8Ball & MJG, he eventually signed a deal with Slip-n-Slide Records, which has been under the Def Jam umbrella since 2006. While signed to Slip-n-Slide, Ross toured with fellow rapper Trick Daddy and made guest performances on other Slip-n-Slide albums.
Ashes To Ashes is the second mixtape by rapper Rick Ross, it was released on December 24, 2010. The mixtape features guest appearances from T.I., Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Meek Mill, Chester French, Aaliyah, Ne-Yo and Birdman.
Jonah Weiner of Rolling Stone said “I’m smokin’ dope! I’m on my cellphone!” he roars on “9 Piece“. That shouldn’t sound impressive, but with Ross pitching it, it does.” Tom Breihan at Pitchfork Media said “Ashes to Ashes has famous guests (T.I., Ludacris) and big producers (Boi-1da, Lex Luger), and its sonic depth and serious mastering job are enough to push it way beyond most mixtapes. But the mixtape’s best moments come directly from Ross himself.” Hip Hop Beats For Sale
