Rick Ross is giving a glimpse into the life he has lived with the release of a new memoir, titled Hurricanes. The will unveil his first memoir, co-written with Neil Martinez-Belkin, on Sept. 3, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“My story has always been deeper than rap,” Ross said in a statement. “With this book I wanted to go deeper than I ever have. I wanted to tell people about the life of William Leonard Roberts.” The book is expected to focus on his origin story in Miami, his rise to fame and will touch on past controversies.
“Ross moves beyond the headlines, opening up about the experiences that inform his creative process,” the official synopsis reads. “His upbringing in Carol City. His past as both a drug dealer and correctional officer. His scuffles in the streets and in the industry. The seizures. The drive-by shootings. The 2015 arrest on kidnapping and assault charges. It is a remarkable story of not only surviving the storms of life but reaching the highest levels of achievement in spite of them.”
