*Rick Ross is one interesting individual.

The overweight rapper who has a particular admiration of himself covers the latest issue of “Rolling Stone” (in what looks like an unaltered photo).

As the feature cover topic, he talks about his past as a corrections officer.

Inspired by the love he had for a friend, Ross took on the job after his good friend was sentenced to 10 years for drug trafficking.

“This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude,” Ross told Rolling Stone. “Suddenly I’m talking to him over federal phone calls. Hearing the way it was building, I knew I couldn’t take nothing for granted.”

He further explained his new career was a way of washing his own hands clean from his ugly past.

Also in the revealing interview, the rapper admits he’s a big weed head, calling it “green caviar.”
