Rick Ross Admits He ‘Never Understood’ Math in School & Still Doesn’t Know Multiplication During an interview with Afro Tech Rick Ross admitted he doesn’t know his multiplication. He said when he was in school he would crack jokes to hide that he didn’t know the answers. I never learned my multiplication still to this day. He said when they went to pre-algebra in school that was a whole nother language to me. I knew right then and there I wanted to learn how to be a great speaker because when I’m speaking to somebody I don’t want them to know my shortcomings in my other areas. What is something everyone learned in school but you never grasped the concept?
