Faculty: Rick Ross

-After the release of his third album, Deeper Than Rap, yesterday's New York Times featured an excellent profile of Rick Ross. The coke-rap icon/former corrections officer's recent beef with 50 Cent (see the above video) made headlines and brought Ross's credibility into question. Still, he managed to come back with a more polished lyrical style to create what many consider his best record yet. In my opinion, 50 hasn't made a good record since his debut. He already got rich, but with Ross on the rise he might actually have to start trying.
