Rick Ross Calls for Non-vi*lence as He Receives Miami’s Key to the City

Rick Ross Advocates for Change Amidst Tragedy at MLK Jr. Scholarship Breakfast

Rick Ross stood as an esteemed guest at the 5000 Role Models' Dr. MLK Jr. Scholarship Breakfast, carrying a somber heart following Big Jook's tragic demise.

In anticipation of the event, Rozay delivered an empowering speech to his Memphis followers, urging them to discard the ski masks, colloquially known as "Pooh Shiesty's," and renounce involvement in gunplay.

Ross's impassioned plea suggests a desire for positive change in the city. Memphis, plagued by the highest national homicide rate last year, suffered another blow as Jook, Yo Gotti's brother and CMG Records' top executive, fell victim to murder in early 2024, leaving a funeral procession.

Despite the heavy circumstances, Ross graced the event with a vibrant presence. Swarmed by admirers, he was honored with the Key to the City of Miami from Mayor Francis Suarez and Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who stole the spotlight in a crimson cowgirl ensemble.

Taking the stage, the rap icon addressed the youth, sharing Boss-isms that could shape a future free from the impact of g*n vi*lence. His efforts aimed at inspiring positive change in a city grappling with its share of challenges.
