Rick Ross recently stopped by Georgia State University to speak with law students who are taking a 13-week course on the rapper. The curriculum covers various legal contracts that helped shape Rick Ross’s career and provides students the opportunity to learn about drafting, interpreting, and negotiating deals associated with the music industry.
“As a lover of rap music, Hip-Hop culture, and in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop, I could not think of a better time to study the career of a visionary like Rick Ross,” Professor Mo Ivory stated in a press release. Ivory further added: “When I began my research on Ross, I realized early on that my students would learn about a businessman who turned his love of music into an empire that includes massive real estate holdings, food and beverage franchises, investments in the car and bike industry, literary works and corporate equity ownership.”
