Claims are that the picture was snapped a couple years ago when Rick Ross first took a visit to Jamaica.
In 2015, Ross was arrested for kidnapping and assault charges and was sentenced to house arrest in his Georgia home. He also became engaged to model Lira Galore, but they broke off their engagement within two months.
In January 2016 after much speculation, Rick Ross signed a solo deal with Epic Records.
In 2011, Kartel was arrested by police for marijuana possession. Jamaica authorities later charged him with the murder of a Jamaican businessman, Barrington Burton, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.
Though Kartel was granted bail for the Burton murder on 23 March 2012 for JD$3,000,000, he remained in jail in connection with a second murder, of one Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams, of Waterford, St Catherine.
He was charged, along with two others including Vanessa “Gaza Slim” Saddler, with perverting the course of justice, after Saddler allegedly claimed that Williams had robbed her in order to mislead the police into believing that he was still alive.
Kartel’s trial was originally scheduled for 21 January 2013, but had to be postponed due to a lack of jurors, and was rescheduled for 11 July.
On 24 July a jury found Kartel not guilty of the charge of murder of Barrington Burton.
However, Kartel remained in custody pending the second murder case.
His trial for the murder of Clive Williams started on 18 November 2013, and on 13 March 2014 he was found guilty by an eleven-member jury (10-1) of murder of 27-year-old Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
The 65-day trial was said to have been the longest in Jamaica’s history.
On 3 April 2014, Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment. He would be eligible for parole after serving 35 years.
In the meanwhile, Vybz Kartel’s common-law wife Tanesha Johnson, who has three sons with the “Worl Boss” deejay, takes full control of his music career via her label Short Boss Muzik.
