In life you have to take the good in with the bad, the sweet with the bitter.

You must toil so you can be rewarded, you must sow in order to reap and enjoy the harvest. It’s all about balance. It’s a thing of seasons, in life just as in natures cycles there will be summer, winter, spring and autumn.

The human thing is to never surrender. Even at our weakest points we’ve disillusioned ourselves into believing that we are capable of making things go our way. And if they dare not oblige, we force the matter, not only just to prove a point, and to assert our egos but to ride on the high of success and the pride of knowing you’ve made something work.

CLICK on pic to view story

I’ll be the first to admit that I never really paid any attention to Rick Ross before Teflon Don, released July 2010. It is kind of like the same experience I had with T.I and Paper Trail. But I can now tell you that Rick is the founder of Maybach Music Group and that Rick Ross is not his real name, his name is William Leonard Roberts II.
