The Real Freeway Ricky Ross Says He's Keeping Goons & Suge Knight From Confronting Rapper Rick Ross & Barring Him From L.A. [Video]


Video After The Jump


The real "Freeway" Ricky Ross has been battling the rapper who took on his name and persona in court to try and reclaim both. It hasn't been an easy road for "Freeway" Ricky. In November 2010 a federal judge in L.A. threw out the first $10 million lawsuit he filed against the rapper, born William Roberts. A second lawsuit was also thrown out in March 2012.


"I should've filed a lawsuit while I was still in prison," "Freeway" Ricky told after hearing the disappointing hews about the second lawsuit "There's a law that technically if the person publishes the name again, republishes the name, that's another violation. So we argued that every time he put out a new album that's a republication of the name, or every time he does a different magazine article that's a republication because that's in a different magazine, that's a new republication… She [the judge] said that she wasn't certain that that's how the republication law read. She said that ours was a single publication and once he started using the name, the first time it ever played on the radio in suburban Miami was the date that she used."


"Freeway" Ricky plans to continue legal action in the case. While he plots his next legal move he's also having to hold off people who want to pursue the situation in the streets.


In a new interview with he says he is having to keep goons at bay who want to see matters handled in a different manner.


"It's hard," he said. "Trust me, these dudes in L.A. don't like what he's done. It's hard for me to get them not to go get him. Even when I lost the lawsuit, three of the shot callers from the hood came to me and said, 'Is it time yet?' I was like, 'Nah, man.' I don't want that. I don't want nobody to do nothing to him. They want to put a no-fly zone on him, saying he can't come to L.A."

"Freeway" Ricky said even Suge Knight wants a piece of the rapper.


"Even Suge Knight came out. Suge stepped to me one day like, 'Let me take care of this.' I was like, 'Nah.' It ain't about that," he said.

In response to people saying that Freeway Ricky is just going for cash... I'd say that's probably 50# true, but the motivation he has to keep trying over and over again is b/c of Ross being a prison guard, since Freeway just spent 20 plus years behind bars, surrounded by prison guards. He's seen that prison guards aren't just collecting paychecks with no passion for the job. They are cops, pure and simple, and Freeway doesn't like the fact that someone has based their name and act on his life story when a great portion of his life has been spent behind bars, and who knows what he's seen from prison guards' behavior, and he resents it, with good reason I think.
With the amount of fame Rick Ross has at this point, he should just bury the issue by switching his stage name to "Rozay". Everyone who follows rap will still know who he is, whether they like him or not. Plus, if he would change to Rozay, then Freeway might stop bring up the fact that he's an ex-cop every other day. If I were Rick Ross and found out that dude I named myself after hates my guts to the point of lawsuits, I'd just drop the name... especially if Rick Ross respects the hustle like he say she does in his music.
Oh, and for those saying that Suge is nothing to be afraid of, think again... He's a dangerous man, to be certain... and unpredictable with an unstable mind. He's been tied to several murders, still has connections, etc. He can't challenge Ross in the rap game anymore, but behind the scenes, I wouldn't want to hear that Suge wanted a piece of me.

Suge ain't fronting. You can jump him all you want but if he catch you you f****** done dilly! Suge a real street dude with lots of street credibility!

SonGetWrec you honestly are telling us that no one is scared of Suge Kight? So if he confronted you, you would be the slightest bit worried? Just because he got his a few times does it mean he's weak? The dude that knocked him out was a golden glove boxer for one. The second dude was a straight up gorilla. Regardless Suge is still heavily connected to the streets! No one aint gone really f*** with him.

The bottom line is Freeway Ross wants some paper, period. His lawyer fees is adding up. Suge Knight want a piece of the paper too. He a loser trying to be a bully. Rick Ross is still in his lane making money and fairly consistent in the rap game. Why goons is worried about the next n***** issue is why goons ain't got s***. #niggasneverlearn

As a n**** that was born in compton and raised in south central I know for a fact this dude could make something happen to ol boi. He gots to be careful when he in LA....these dudes aint playin out here.

Honestly I don't know why some n***** opt or decide to take on the names of infamous people/figures of society? Why not come up with your own unigue name so that you can avoid association (mistaken for another person) with another person or persons. Hence, "make a name for yourself and yourself alone". I have nothing against neither of these men but I get where freeway rick ross is coming from. Maybe he might have felt differently if the rapper rick ross reached out to him at the begining of his career kinda like what freeway the rapper did. Anyways, these are grown men. Let them figure it out.
