Hip Hop News: Officer Rick Ross Tries to Defend His Corrections Officer Past

When MTV News had the chance to listen to Rick Ross' Deeper Than Rap on Monday, two things stood out to us immediately about the much-discussed track"Valley of Death": It does not feature Lil Wayne as advertised, at least not on the album, which is due out on April 21. But Ross does speak briefly on his controversial stint as a prison guard.

"N---a never had a gun and badge," he stresses, dismissing the word that he was indeed an officer of the law. "Can't criticize n---as trying to get a job."

Later he implies that while he was working as a corrections officer, he was also on the streets, declaring that he had "two jobs."

"I'll C.O. so we could bow our head and pray over the meatloaf," Ross rhymes. "You can label me the biggest label in the game."
