Rick Ross Reflects on Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. [VIDEO]

Today (Jan. 20), people celebrated the life of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day of volunteerism and service. In a segment with Revolt TV, Rick Ross reflected on the legacy of the late civil rights icon and his importance in American history.

“We all carry that burden to continue the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.,” said Ross. “We all are responsible for making sure that resonates with everybody else that’s underneath us and around us. That was most definitely a very peaceful, very powerful, influential brother.”

Rozay also detailed a story about a chat he had with an older gentlemen who supposedly was a close confidant of Dr. King. He told him a startling revelation about MLK Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

“I actually was having a conversation with another older gentleman and I was just asking about Martin Luther King. We was actually in Memphis,” he recalls. “This brother was like, ‘The ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, that was a beautiful speech. Powerful speech. Powerful speech. But that’s not the speech that got the brother murdered.’ I said ‘It’s not?’ I said ‘What was?’”

“He said, ‘Brother Martin gave a speech at a church a few days before he was murdered. Telling black people to buy land. Buy all the land you can. We need land,’” he continued. “And I’m just looking at the brother. He said ‘You remember that. You remember that.’ I said ‘I’m gonna remember that, pops.’ Him telling me that, man it just let me know it’s so much that I don’t know about the brother. His name will live forever.”

The Maybach Music Group honcho must have heeded the old man’s advice because he reportedly purchased a HUGE plot of land.

According to reports, Ross bought Evander Holyfield’s old mansion in Georgia. The Fayette County estate sits on 235 acres of land and boasts 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, a bowling alley, movie theater and the biggest pool in the U.S.

It looks like Rick Ross is living out his dreams.
