‘Freeway’ Ricky Ross Calls Rick Ross ‘A Complete Idiot’


The original “Freeway” Ricky Ross is sick and tired of William L. Roberts II profiting off of his name and reputation. While Hip-Hop’s Rick Ross, who at the moment has Miami police looking for him, enjoys his lofty perch on the top of MTV’s Hottest MCs in the Game list, “Freeway” Ricky is busy trying to put a halt to The Bawse’s hustle with a lawsuit.

The case—which was originally thrown out in 2010—has been reopened in California with a new trial date set for early May in Los Angeles. While talking to The Boombox, the original Ricky Ross, and reformed ex-drug kingpin, laid into the Maybach Music Group mogul, who the OG feels is “spitting in people’s faces” by creating a false past and that he will eventually find his career in the dump if he doesn’t rectify the situation.

“I think he’s a complete idiot,” said Freeway Ricky Ross in the interview. “It’s a disgrace for me to have someone like this with my name. He doesn’t know what the name stands for, or how I got my name. He thinks that this name belongs to some big mafia guy who don’t care about nothing but himself and really, he’s just a pig.”
When asked why Hip-Hop embraces the Miami rapper, the original Ross states that many rappers in the industry today are just as phony as he is.
“Well, most of them are just like he is,” he continued. “I sold drugs because I thought that was my only option. I know what it’s like not to have food in the refrigerator. These guys come from good backgrounds… To have somebody who went to college and whose moms had a good job then turn around and claim poverty and illiteracy, it’s totally ludicrous.”

With the trial date around the corner, “Freeway” says that the judge has decided to make this a public trial, which means that as soon as the final ruling is made, Ross will publically release the rapper’s deposition that made him lose what little respect he had for the MMG head honcho.

“I can’t wait, so everyone can see what a clown he is,” he stated. “When they get to see some of the things he says on camera … I couldn’t believe some of the things he said on camera. Let the world see it.”

    True hip-hop fans respect the real not the fake! This dude is a true, “identity thief” with no shame or regret. As a hip-hop fan from way back it’s sad to see the state of hip-hop today or as I call it now, “MINDLESS ZOMBIE MUSIC”!

  • Connoisseur

    He knows what it’s like to have no food in the refrigirator? I know what it’s like to have no refrigirator. SMH. Gaaaadaaayum! Law breakers acting like icons. They’ve got hip hop to thank for the warped mindsets of society at large.

  • Just sayin

    Im just sayin, he made a point when he said Rick Ross don’t know what it’s like not to have food in his fridge, the dude is fat, he was definitely not missing meals!

  • Foshow38

    Most people didn’t even know who the real Rick Ross, as well all rappers got there name from someone or something. He is just mad that the Bawse is sucessful and he can’t eat off of it. The only thing I’ll give him is that the bawse never did most of the stuff he raps about, But than again what rapper did?

    • a real ninja

      hip hop is fake, rick rozay is fake, and you lames who like him are fake too… ain’t nothing cool about selling your soul for money and that’s all these rappers do today… yall fans are fake , start calling these lames out!!!!!

    • Vandellish

      Uhhh yeah…you’d be mad too if someone was using your name to glorify a crime lifestyle after you’d changed too.

  • Who knows

    Whatever video he has I would love to see. I have always thought he was a complete joke but for some reason…… I love his music?

  • ruth alk

    The rapper rick ross is such a fake fat bastard it’s ridiculous and everybody who supports his stuff are dummies. Now in an attempt for the rapper rick ross to give his fantasy life some merit, he’s trying to hide from the law because somebody got killed on one of his property so he can rap about how he either pulled the trigger himself or hired somebody to do it LOL! I bet this ex correction officer is in police custody right now working with the boys in blue. I wont be surprised if the rapper rick ross is a hip-hop cop himself.

  • DaTroof

    Capone, Noreaga, Scarface, etc. etc. The diff b/w them and Risk Ross is that those men were either fictional or dead once the rappers took the name. The rapper Rick Ross was late and worng for naming himself after Freeway Rick Ross. Dude is still alive, so how do just jack a person’e whole identity. I like his music but I agree, was a fake a** move!

  • Foshow38

    Everyone seems to forget that he is a entertainer! You’ll be an idiot to talk about the people you murked or talk about your real connects. Your favorite rapper is not doing the Isht he saying in his raps I don’t care who is it. I bet most of you think SCARFACE is a real person.

  • Beno

    What I don’t understand about some of you think it is about hate. Dude was setup eventually and put in the clink. He is trying to make a difference now(Though a little too late it appears). He is using his name. Freeway Ricky didn’t need him to make him legitimate. The West know who he is. So does the DEA, FBI, LAPD and the ATF. Some of you all sound ignorant as hell defend ‘Fake’ Rick Ross.

  • DaReal

    Dat Freeway Ricki is a hater. The Bawse is hustling in dis rap game. He ain’t harming nobody jus talking words. I understand black communities as a whole is impressionable and I don’t condone his lyrics! To have sold drugs and help destroy black ppl is a far greater crime. Nobody outside the west coast really new who da real freeway ricki was–lets keep it real.

  • TruthTeller

    the game will never be the same..smh fake rappers and praised strippers

  • im just sayin

    A lot of rappers have sampled names from other drug lords and this guy is the only one suing…Rick Ross just needs to give him the little pay check he’s asking for and keep it moving. Nobody cares what he thinks its entertainment moron get over your name. Besides it’s not like you owned the rights to that name.  Is he suing the rapper freeway as well? NO cause he dont have rick ross money gtfoh old timer

    • Candy Redd

      dang why you mad….lmao

      besides: Freeway asked permission before he used his name and Ricky said yes.
      Rick Ross IS a phony and has no respect and I think thats what under Freeway Rickys Skin….The phoniness.

      If you are going to use a real g name be a real g….That is all

      I personally can’t wait til this court date is over with so I can see the videos and paper of Officer Ricky biiichin up

    • hunneyeyes

      It doesnt matter if he is an old timer or an old G…age makes no difference here or anywhere else,  I just wanna know how does he know he is the Ricky Ross, Rick Ross is talking about?  lmao.  There could be someone in Maryland or Washington DC,  New Jersey, Tennessee etc named Ricky Ross , that Rick Ross admired and decided to adopt his name. I could see if he had a name like Geronimo(pinky) Jones and was whaling! Imean is it written somewhere that Rapper Rick Ross is talking about this guy in particular??? Just askin’!

  • He should’ve trademarked it.  Don’t hate the playa, hate the game.

  • Unico

    This man is going to waste his life over this.
    He should be working on either making music or writing it for others. It’s like he is expecting this trial to be his ‘money flow’.

    • Stay in school

      ^–> reason why kids should stay in school and learn the English language.

    If you are old enough you would remember CONTRA SCAM. Once you have that information you would understand The Real Rick Ross.He flooded our communities with that poison (CRACK) with CIA help.Oliver North took the weight for President Reagan and Vice President George Bush Sr. who was the head of the CIA years prior.Rick Ross wants to change that destruction. Hear we have a brother whom had a great up bringing went to college and was a Correctional Officer.The real Rick Ross didn’t need to rap. William stated he never heard of a person who he stole his whole Swag.Freeway didn’t get any trouble because Rick Ross nickname was Freeway. That’s not on his birth certificate. When you lie you have to tell more  lies until it spends out of control.This is the disturbing part You go college and have a great life Your parents give you the best that they have you through it back in their faces for a phony persona and have talent, He went on Lift Every Voice a Gospel Show and the Host called him Rick Ross.Everyone need to copy right your name.Sometime when you walk in someone else shoes you may catch the things the original person was suppose to receive When do you separate Reality from Fantasy?
