This week’s blog is an exclusive Hall of Shame case study which illustrates how you can go from a bragger to being accused of having bootleg swagger. The subject of this investigative piece by The S-Dot Files is William Leonard Roberts II, known by his rap alias Rick Ross.
Ross has sustained several character questioning blows, the latest of which has Louis Vuitton blowing him up about wearing knockoff shades bearing their emblem on XXL’s “Rick Ross Up in Smoke” cover. Ricky’s preoccupation with bling has blinded him to the reality that his pockets don’t match his ‘$10 millionaire’ swagger, so he’s been known to rock knockoffs and bootleg the styles of others.
Ms. Tiallondra Kemp, the mother of William Leonard Roberts III, son of rotund rapper Rick Ross has put him on full blast. Her baby mama tell-all memoir, “Deeper than Rap” bears the same title as the Miami wordsmiths latest album, which debuted at #1 on Billboard, selling a measly 158,000 copies.
CHECKING TIA’S RESUME…
Rick coveted Tia the Liberty City native of the infamous Pork-n-Beans Projects whiles she was still an incarcerated man’s wife. The inmate’s wife stealer wooed her away with the false promise of the finer things in life. Of course this appealed to her after growing up in the 763-unit housing complex in a single-parent home, disenfranchised with a father sentenced to 40 years in prison. Rick recognized that as a representative of the very same system that locked up her father and former husband is how he ensnared her.
What she ended up with was his namesake William Jr. and him disrespecting her on Youtube for all the world to see.
In several recent media interviews Tia shares, he hasn’t seen his son since he took the truck back in January from the parking lot at their child support hearing. Rick also disregards texts from his ex. The mother of William Jr. says, “You ain’t got to talk to me. Holla at your son.” The rich deadbeat, has also been accused of not paying his child support for the last two months. “He ain’t sent a check or nothing.”
To counter and refuge these scathing charges, the fake Louis Vuitton wearing rhymer will likely have to provide copies of cancelled checks. Baby mamas everywhere are ramping up support of Tia against deadbeats globally. Ricky is really making a lot of around-the-way dudes in the hood catch heat.

Yes, it’s Deeper than Rap…
Brooke, his first baby’s mother’s daughter saw the clip of her having sex online. Now, even Tia’s son wants to see the video. Just imagine the shame and horror.
The former corrections officer has three #1 debuts on Billboard. Last year’s “Trilla” sold 198,000 and 2006’s “Port of Miami” sold 189,000 their first week. This makes his latest album which should’ve debuted with no less than 300,000 in sales from all the publicity generated by his high-profile beef with rap titan 50 Cent a commercial flop. His newest album “Deeper than Rap” sold 158,000-175,000 (depending on your source), and those first week sales fell 68% the second week.
By contrast, 50 Cent’s first name “Curtis” sold 691,000 its first week and folks called it a flop. Clearly, the public has let this recession lull them into thinking that a difference of 516,000-533,000 in sales is not a huge difference. Duh!
Officer Ricky used to pat brothers down and strip search them for weapons and contraband. He closed their cell doors and locked them in cages like “mooonkeeees” as he loves calling people. His zookeeper-like taunts are proof of his need to get over himself. He makes catchy music, but it’s not that serious and he could be forgotten. He’s yet to make anything memorable enough for the type of noise that’s always coming out of his lying mouth. Fat boy should’ve just wrapped and not said a word with all the issues he’s got.

PLAYER ADVISORY: If you’re going to pick up the bat swing it player. Otherwise you’re going to be labeled a lame for swinging for mediocre scribes. Officer Ricky gives out-of-breath quickies and can’t wear out the booty. That’s a bad look.

LISTENER OBSERVATION: Rick calls this radio host “my brother” repeatedly, but calls 50 Cent “mooonkeee” like a Klansman.
Switching sides: “It’s not about who sells more records.” (???) Then when he’s reminded by radio host that this is “business of music” he says “of course it is.” LOL
REAL TALK: From now on, Officer Ricky should be required to an ‘Oath of Truth’ before he begins all interviews since he’s got butterfingers with the truth. Otherwise the streets should mute out all statements made by this individual regardless of how catchy the musical backdrop. Remember, the Pied Piper lead young impressionable minds astray the same way.
The former corrections officer needs to practice corrective discipline when it comes to compulsion to lie because of his lust for money, power and respect. His anger and greed had led him to attach himself to people that feed his pride without checking his ego. Just looking at his body is evidence of his inability to watch his mouth.
Rick is greedy for the attention of others besides his children. He is lustful for the accolades of strangers and discards the love that others who’ve been duped by his lies have shown. In the eyes of many of the broken, battered and disappointed women in our communities, he epitomizes the ‘trapped man’ a brother imprisoned within the status quo.
The reason Rick is not a $100 millionaire is because he fails to address his liabilities and recklessly squanders his assets. He’s all flash and no cash. His fear of our ability to vet his past has lead to his compulsive lying campaign which he calls a media tour. Officer Ricky in each ensuing interview continues to show that he suffers from verbal diarrhea.

Officer Ricky constantly says stuff like Dr. Dre should holla at him. He says he’ll end the beef if 50 “pay me to write his raps, and Dr. Dre give me five beats.” But if he’d just listen to Dre’s music catalogue, he’d find his own answer in tracks like “Deep Cover” and “F*ck the Police.”
Note to Officer Ricky: Dr. Dre doesn’t mess with the police.
A Man in Denial…
To claim of William Jr’s mother Tia, “this is a woman I was never personally attached to. I took it like she was an actress for a day,” is sad commentary. He had sex with that woman without a condom, now he was never personally attached to her? You can’t get any more personal than that. One day his son will be able to Youtube and hear his father deny his mother. This dude is serious not thinking long-term.
And then to claim that he hasn’t watched the video featuring Brooke, saying “of course I haven’t watched the video” the mother of his first child is downright ridiculous. He goes on, “For the record: I don’t know a Brooke.” Who would not look at the evidence against them in the public court of opinion? That is just an asinine statement to make.
Speculation is that he’s a Laurence Fishburne-like ‘Deep Cover’ operative working within the realms of music to build cases against street organizations. Word on the street is that Officer Ricky comes around burning trees and asking who’s got “that” in order to entrap them for the Hip Hop cops.
Tale from their Tapes…
William Leonard Roberts II (Rick Ross) worked at a jail and Curtis Jackson (50 Cent) has done time in a jail. And since prisons and COs don’t get along… Curtis’ street life lead to him getting five shots by rivals, William’s fabricated life has him pretending he shot at least five of his rivals. And someone took the movie ‘Deep Cover’ a little too serious. Both have adopted the names of street legends. 50’s namesake is deceased and Rick’s is witnessing his name die daily.
Big Willie sure loves to be silly, and really has slippery fingers when it comes to the facts. He embellishes nearly every word that comes out of his mouth. His confidence makes you want to root for him, but then he keeps talking and you end up just wishing he’d shut his pie hole.
In hip-hop eyewear is also know as ‘swags’ so for Ross to be caught on the cover of XXL wearing fake floss LV glasses is embarrassing. Particularly, since the luxury brand sent a letter of clarification to the hip hop publication notifying the streets of yet another lie from embellishing rapper. The LV brand spokesperson said in a letter to clarify several points to the magazine: “The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton and, in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal.” Ouch!!!
Officer Ricky’s undoing is William Leonard Roberts II. His truths keep coming to light.
So, on that note let’s check out some comedy that Officer Ricky has inspired in the blogosphere. Enjoy!
