An influential figure in modern hip hop music, Rick Ross has become known for his "booming" vocal performance, "larger than life" persona, and vivid lyrical imagery.

His fourth album, ''Teflon Don'' (2010) spawned the single "Aston Martin Music" (featuring Drake and Chrisette Michele)—which received triple platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)—while his fifth and sixth albums, ''God Forgives, I Don't'' (2012) and ''Mastermind'' (2014) peaked the ''Billboard'' 200 twice more.

Outside of his solo career, Ross was a lead member of the hip hop group Triple C's, alongside fellow Florida rappers Gunplay and Torch in 2005. Ross founded the record label Maybach Music Group (MMG) in 2009, through which he has signed artists including Meek Mill, Wale, French Montana, and Omarion, among others. MMG entered a joint venture with Def Jam and later Epic Records to release his subsequent studio albums: ''Hood Billionaire'' (2014), ''Black Market'' (2015), ''Rather You Than Me'' (2017), ''Port of Miami 2'' (2019), and ''Richer Than I Ever Been'' (2021). After which, it entered a joint venture with gamma. to release his collaborative album, ''Too Good to Be True'' (2023) with Meek Mill. Ross is the recipient of nine Grammy Award nominations, and has been named "Man of the Year" for two consecutive years by hip hop magazine ''The Source'' in 2010 and 2011, as well as "Hottest MC in the Game" by MTV in 2011.
