Rappers saying they used to be drug dealers when they really weren't

Examples: Rick Ross

You might be a rapper if... you've rewritten history—literally, by recreating your life story as a more exciting version. Like, for instance, claiming to have been a narcotics kingpin. And who can blame you? It's like showing up to your high school reunion in a helicopter with a hell of a ten-year story. You're the man, and no one's gonna ask any questions! (Sidenote: this all worked a lot better before the advent of the Internet, where nothing ever, ever disappears.)
