The first single from Ross, “Hustlin’,” became a smash hit, due to the hypnotic line “Every day I’m hustling” repeated throughout the song. The single was eventually certified gold, an impressive feat for a brand new recording artist.
Ross debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Albums Chart with his premiere album, Port of Miami, in 2006. His sophomore album, Trilla (2008)—named as a tribute to his idol Michael Jackson’s popular album Thriller (1982)—also debuted at No. 1.
With his success, Ross became more of a presence on the tour circuit and in the press. He began to write, perform and collaborate with a wide range of popular acts including Jay-Z, R. Kelly, Flo-Rida, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy and several others.
Fans can expect to see him performing some of his hit singles when he takes to the stage, including ‘Magnificent’, ‘All I Do Is Win’, and ‘Aston Martin Music’. Rick Ross has worked with some of the biggest artists in the world, including Drake, DJ Khaled, and John Legend. He’s released nine studio albums, all of which were top ten albums in the US, and his tenth album is due out later this year.
