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.”
