Year He Turned 30: 2006

Number of Albums Released at the Time: 1

Rick Ross was 30 when he released his debut, Port Of Miami. On that album, Ross’ drug-dealing narratives and husky delivery set the stage for the dominant MC we see today. Songs like “Hustlin” and “Push It” were rap anthems that went mainstream, and are widely ranked among the modern classics in the Miami rapper's catalog.
