Snoop Dogg Agrees To Score, Wants Lead Role In Movie Based On The Life Of "Freeway" Rick Ross

 

Video After The Jump

The life story of "Freeway" Rick Ross is moving closer to being seen on the big screen.

In 2009 Ross and Emmy Award winning writer/actor Nick Cassavetes announced they were working together on a screenplay for the movie.

"I love working with Nick, I think he’s great I love his films,” Ross told AllHipHop.com at the time. “He and I really vibed the first time we met and I think he truly understands the story. Not only has he been following my life for 25 years but he’s also someone I can kick it with!"

Now it looks like the film has locked up a producer for the soundtrack. In a new video Snoop Dogg says he will handle the soundtrack, and also wants to play the lead role of Ross.

"I told my OG before he got home that I wanted to get down with him and that I love him to death and I'm a part of telling this story," Snoop said. "I told him, 'look when it's time to play you, it's got to be me because I'm the only one that can put that thang on it.' And I also want to be part of the soundtrack to make sure it's scored right. To make sure it represents the era and the time period we were going through out here in the west."

Ross was one of America's biggest drug kingpins during the early 80's. He operated a cocaine distribution ring that extended from his home base of Los Angeles, through states like Texas, Oklahoma, Indiana and South Carolina. Ross estimates that at the height of his success he made $3 million dollars in one day.

His run ended when he was busted for trying to buy 100 kilos of cocaine from an undercover cop.

Ross was originally sentenced to life in prison, but after an appeal his sentence was reduced to 20 years. He was released in September 2009.

 

Now word yet on when production will start on the movie.

This is whats up!!!! Im glad the real rick ross is back and i feel like the fake one needs to change his name or leave hip hop. Hip hop is a place for real people, not fake ones.

i think 50 should play Rick. I aint on 50's nutz at all, but i think he is doing a good job with the whole acting thang, and even though Denzel would be a great look for the role...i dont think budget gonna stretch for that. Good luck.
