Rick Ross, 47, has a new girlfriend – 25 year old female rapper Dess Dior. Media Take Out has been hearing rumors that the two were dating for a few weeks – but the couple made it official yesterday, at Rick Ross’ annual pool party.
Dess attended Ross pool party, and the two cozied up together in Ross’ special VIP section. They look cute together.
Prior to releasing his debut single, “Hustlin””, in 2006, Ross was the subject of a bidding war, receiving offers from Diddy’s Bad Boy Entertainment and Irv Gotti’s Murder Inc., ultimately signing a multimillion-dollar deal with Jay-Z on Def Jam Recordings. Ross released his debut album Port of Miami through the label later that year, debuting at the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart, with sales of 187,000 units during the first week. Ross released his second studio album, Trilla, in 2008, once again debuting atop the Billboard 200. In early 2012, MTV named Ross as the Hottest MC in the Game.
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 in 2009, on which he released his studio albums Deeper Than Rap (2009), Teflon Don (2010), God Forgives, I Don’t (2012), Mastermind and Hood Billionaire (2014), Black Market (2015), Rather You Than Me (2017), Port of Miami 2 (2019), and his eleventh and most recent studio album Richer Than I Ever Been, was released in December 2021. Prominent music industry acts have signed to Rick Ross through the Maybach Music label, including Meek Mill, Wale, and French Montana, among others.
