Hurricanes by Rick Ross PDF
Rick Ross is an indomitable presence in the music industry, but few people know his full story. Now, for the first time, Ross offers a vivid, dramatic and unexpectedly candid account of his early childhood, his tumultuous adolescence and his dramatic ascendancy in the world of hip-hop.
Born William Leonard Roberts II, Ross grew up “across the bridge,” in a Miami at odds with the glitzy beaches, nightclubs and yachts of South Beach. In the aftermath of the 1980 race riots and the Mariel boatlift, Ross came of age at the height of the city’s crack epidemic, when home invasions and execution-style killings were commonplace. Still, in the midst of the chaos and danger that surrounded him, Ross flourished, first as a standout high school football player and then as a dope boy in Carol City’s notorious Matchbox housing projects. All the while he honed his musical talent, overcoming setback after setback until a song called “Hustlin’” changed his life forever. Hurricanes by Rick Ross PDF
From the making of “Hustlin’” to his first major label deal with Def Jam, to the controversy surrounding his past as a correctional officer and the numerous health scares, arrests and feuds he had to transcend along the way, Hurricanes is a revealing portrait of one of the biggest stars in the rap game, and an intimate look at the birth of an artist.
“Hurricanes takes readers on a gripping journey through Ross’s childhood growing up in the ’80s in the crime-ridden neighborhood of Carol City in Miami Gardens, Florida—to his rocky road to stardom and the many perils and controversies that came after.”—People
“No one can accuse William Leonard Roberts II of living an uninteresting life, and his appropriately titled memoir is one wild ride.”—Library Journal
“Hip-hop fans will flock to Ross’ frankly told and compelling life story.”—Booklist
“Another milestone moment [for Ross].”—HotNewHipHop
Review – Hurricanes by Rick Ross PDF
Though Hip Hop is not something that I have followed a lot, I am always amazed by the stories that bring the music and the culture to life. That is what first got my attention about Rick Ross and his amazing rise to prominence in the industry and in life. When I heard about his book HURRICANES I knew it was something I had to read, to better understand the man and how he became who he is. I was not disappointed.
We get the story of where he came from, who inspired and influenced him and of course the choices he made that led him down some profitable yet danger roads. We see the highs, the lows, the relationships and the struggles. But most important to me we see the resilience. Whether it is legal battles, health woes or relationships Rick Ross is not one to take anything without a fight. He is a fighter. And if nothing else I think that is what people will take away from the book. Hurricanes by Rick Ross PDF
“I don’t fear death but I do fear unfinished business,” he says in the book. That should be something all of us should keep in mind as we approach each day.
HURRICANES reminds us that great things can emerge after life’s storms. You have only to look at Rick Ross’ journey and see that is true.

Inside this book –Hurricanes PDF Book by Rick Ross – The first year of my life was spent in a house my parents rented in Hialeah, west of Miami. But I don’t remember a thing about that place. My earliest memories are in Carol City, at the corner of 183rd Street and 39th Court, where my folks bought a small three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the spring of 1977. Aside from its seafoam-green paint job, my house looked like every other one on the block. Due to the hurricanes all of inner city Miami’s homes are built the same: concrete, reinforced steel bars and stormproof windows. Inside the house everything was concrete too. The ceiling.

The walls. The floors. South Florida is too hot for carpet. Behind my house was a set of housing projects. In the bushes that separated my backyard and the apartments lived two junkies. Sometimes I’d watch them from my bedroom window. At night I could only make out the flicker of flame from when they’d light up their crack. The cloud of smoke looked different than when my daddy smoked his cigarettes. He smoked Benson & Hedges Menthol 100’s. The crack smoke was thicker. It almost looked blue. One day my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to get a closer look at the dope fiends’ doghouse. I crawled through the bushes into their makeshift dwelling and stared at all the straight shooters, empty baggies and cans of Schlitz malt liquor strewn about the space. I couldn’t believe there were people who lived like this.
