Rick Ross just escaped jail time — so now he’s counting his lucky stars and thanking the man above.

The rapper appeared before a judge on Tuesday in connection with the assault case, in which he allegedly pistol-whipped a groundskeeper at his Georgia home in June 2015.

The rapper, who faced charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery, struck a major plea deal in the case which led to the 41-year-old being a free man — sort of.

According to reports, Ricky Rozay pleaded no contest to one felony count of aggravated assault, while the other charges were dropped. Considering the sentencing was a first time felony offense, part of the deal also included paying a $10,000 fine to have the conviction deleted from his record.

Per TMZ, Ross also pleaded no contest to 5 misdemeanors — assault, battery, 2 counts of pointing a pistol at someone, and possession of less than 1 oz of pot. For all the misdemeanors, he was given a total of 60 months probation.

On Tuesday evening, the rapper tweeted: God is Great.

He followed up by tweeting it’s time to get back to the “money” and that it’s the perfect day to “boss up.”

Ross initially spent a week behind bars following the arrest two years ago. He was taken into custody at his home in Fayette County after allegedly pistol-whipping an employee who was hired to do some work on his Georgia home.

The arrest report stated that Ross and his bodyguard hit Jonathan Zamudio multiple times with a Glock 9mm gun, chipping two of his teeth. Zamudio also suffered serious neck and jaw injuries.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
