Topics: Rapper Rick Ross Is ENGAGED... To His New BLONDE.
Rick James! (born James Ambrose Johnson, Jr. February 1, 1948 – August 6, 2004) was an American musician and composer.
James' controversial and provocative image became troublesome sometimes. During his heyday, James had presented his songs to the then-fledging music video channel, MTV , only to be turned down because James' music didn't fit the network's rock playlist. James accused the network of racism.  When MTV and BET both avoided playing the video for "Loosey's Rap" because of its graphic sexual content, James considered the networks hypocritical in light of them still playing provocative videos by Madonna and Cher.
James had three children with Syville Morgan, a former singer and songwriter. They had a daughter, Ty, and a son, Rick Jr.
