A year later he released his debut album Port of Miami, which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200. 2008 saw the release of Ross’s sophomore LP, Trilla. As a result, Billboard’s 200 album list ranked it first upon release.
MTV dubbed Ross the “Hottest MC in the Game” in the early months of 2012. VH1’s Snoop and Martha’s Potluck Dinner Party included Ross. He cooked alongside Martha Stewart in the show.

Notorious B.I.G. and Luther Campbell were among the artists Roberts listened to as a child. Roberts’ interest in rap was influenced greatly by the work of these artists. He was also a big fan of football and played throughout much of his adolescence.
That made him eligible for Albany State University’s football scholarship. After a year, Roberts’ passion for rap forced him to leave school and pursue a career as a rap artist full-time.

In Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on January 27, 2013, Ross and his girlfriend were the victims of a drive-by shooting. Even though Ross and his girlfriend were uninjured, they did manage to flee the scene of the shooting by ramming their car into an apartment building.
Ross was engaged to Lira “Galore” Mercer for a brief period of time in 2015.
For his comments during an interview in 2017 that he never signed any female rappers because “I would wind up f*cking [her] and f*cking the business up,” Ross came under fire. On Facebook, Ross swiftly apologised for the “insensitive” and “error [he regrets]” words he made.
