Rick Ross in 3 Kings video

Since his 2006 debut, “Port Of Miami,” Rick Ross has become one of the biggest pop stars in rap history. But his rise to fame is definitely not due to his lyrical or technical capacities. It's not beyond the self-appointed Boss to rhyme the word “money” with the word “money,” for example, and he happily flaunts tautologies like “A life sentence is a life sentence,” as he does on the song “Cross That Line.”

Ross's elevation is the result of his well-marketed brutishness and rawness, and his ability to portray himself as a larger-than-life gangster with an insatiable appetite for brand name clothes, expensive cars, street violence and women.

In short, Rick Ross is an exceptional bragger. He's not an absurdist; he's no Lil Wayne, Lil B or Riff Raff, but he is the kind of rapper who, in one of his only “serious” songs ever, “I'm Only Human” from 2009's “Trilla,” raps the following: “Got a deadbeat dad, but he far from dead / He never knew chocolate milk make you fart real bad.”

This same flair for the ridiculous comes across in his boasts. To mark the occasion of Ross's fifth studio album, “God Forgives, I Don't,” released in late July on his own Maybach Music Group label, we offer a list of the rapper's 50 Most Ridiculous Boasts. If you think we left out something important, tell us.
