Rick Ross - Cult Membership Prevention Specialist?

A little something interesting. I follow a motivational speaker named Kevin P. Chavrous on Facebook - his posts tend to be aimed at the black community or at least coming from that element. He posted this strange tidbit:

Education Quote for the Day: "The best method for preventing destructive cult involvement is preventative education. If students and the public at large are more aware of destructive groups beforehand they may better understand and resist their recruitment efforts." ~ Rick Ross, hip hop artist
That's a really eloquent comment about cult membership and it makes alot of sense but uhh..... Mr. "U.E.N.O" isn't really a cult membership prevention specialist. That is Rick Alan Ross. Apparently the mix up happens quite a bit. Here's a piece from a Vice article about that Rick Ross:
Rick Ross is a cultbuster. He's spent the last 30 years squeegeeing mumbo-jumbo from the brains of ex-cult victims, from David Koresh's Branch Davidians to Kabbalists to the Black Israelites. It's made him a lot of enemies. But we're not on that list--we even hung out with him briefly a few years back. Scientology has the longest file on him of any of its critics. They once drove him into bankruptcy. He's had threats on his life made regularly, but if you phone his New Jersey office he doesn't even screen his calls through a secretary. Rick Ross (not this one) is hard as nails.
That's him:
