4. Their relationships with female rappers…
Under normal circumstances, we really don’t care who Rick Ross is dating. It’s actually something we’d prefer not to know. But when he allegedly linked up with Foxy Brown back in 2008, it was, if nothing else, interesting. Same goes for Biggie, whose personal relationship with Lil Kim continues to be a source of controversy more than a decade after his death. Seems both rappers liked to mix business with pleasure.

5. Their associations with Diddy…
Say what you want about him: Diddy knows talent. He was the driving force behind Biggie signing a record deal during the early 1990s. And while he might not have been around for the beginning of Rick Ross’s career, he has been around it for the last year or so and recently agreed to manage it. That says a lot about the potential of Rick Ross moving forward.

6. Their larger-than-life personas…
Being big (pause) was beneficial to Biggie—and it’s been just as beneficial to Rick Ross. We’re not sure exactly what it is, but when you’re a big dude, people tend to remember you. It’s a quality that Biggie had during his life, and it’s a quality that Ross continues to use to his advantage…even when he disgusts us by going shirtless. Ha!


So, what do you think? Is Rick Ross really the “Ghost of Christopher Wallace” or are the comparisons between him and Biggie way off base? Leave your opinion in the comment section below and let us know.
