Rick Ross has always portrayed himself as a tough, street-smart individual. Ross loves to flex his street cred whenever he can. Sometimes, he even has positive, productive things to talk about. Today, he went back to his youth to do so.

Rick always wanted to own a Cadillac as a kid. Now that he’s a famous and wealthy music mogul, they’re a dime a dozen. There was a time, though, when Rick Ross had to get creative about owning just a piece of the luxury vehicles.

In a recent social media video, Rozay shared a story from his childhood. Ross admitted to stealing the hood emblems from Cadillacs they would find on the streets. He even went so far as to give instructions on how to remove the famous ornaments.

“Let me tell you something, I ain’t never said this sh*t. You see these emblems right here? As kids, we used to go around and steal them emblems. We used to steal them. Let me tell you something…


You see this? As a young n*gga, you step up on these, you grab this, you step up on this, you grab it, and you jump up. Pop! And we used to collect them bitches. N*ggas used to put them on little chains in elementary. I just know I wanted a Cadillac. I ain’t never said that.”

Petty crime and vandalism are common activities among kids. The owners of these expensive vehicles probably didn’t appreciate it much. Rick Ross would probably throw a fit if someone stole his Caddy’s hood ornament.

Rick Ross is always willing to create controversy in his online videos. The statute of limitations has probably passed since he stole his most recent Cadillac emblem. Now, the story is just an amusing anecdote from a misspent youth.
