More Evidence Proving Rick Ross' Corrections Officer Past Uncovered

July 29, 2008 10:55 AM ET

Despite evidence uncovered by the Smoking Gun that rapper Rick Ross was once employed as a Florida corrections officer, the rapper still denied he ever worked as a CO. So the Smoking Gun went out and got even more evidence. In a new set of documents, the website proves Ross is in denial about his old job, as the Department of Corrections gave TSG an 86-page file on the rapper's employment, including copies of his birth certificate and his social security card. TSG points out that the address on his application matches that of his mother's home, and that the name of his mother on the application also happens to be the name of his mother, as evidenced by Trilla liner notes. Despite the report, at least one rapper is standing by Ross' enormous side, as Trick Daddy said he has no problem with Ross and that the Boss of Miami would still appear on his next album.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
