"Freeway" Ricky Ross Responds To Rapper Rick Ross' Drive-By Shooting Attempt

posted Tuesday January 29 ,2013 at 10:30AM CST | 138 comments

Exclusive: "Freeway" Ricky Ross says that he's "not surprised" that Rick Ross was the target of a drive-by shooting.

Following yesterday morning's incident where rapper Rick Ross crashed his Rolls Royce into a building following a drive-by shooting attempt, "Freeway" Ricky Ross has spoken out on the situtation.

Speaking exclusively with HipHopDX, the former drug kingpin said that he's "not surprised" that the assassination attempt occurred because Ross "doesn't understand the street rules." As a consequence, situations like this take place.

"I'm not surprised that it happened given recent ongoings, when someone doesn't understand the street rules they get confused and incidents like this can take place," he said. "I'm still dealing with ongoing litigation about something as basic as using my name and identity, that should have been dealt with properly a long time ago. No ill will is wished upon anyone, but when you tell these stories about the streets you have to be careful. We covered it in more depth in the Power of the Name Rick Ross piece."

"Freeway" Ricky Ross plans to take the rapper and Warner Bros. Records to court this August in the continuing fight over his name. He previously explained that the Maybach Music Group leader has "exploited and misused [his name] since he went to prison" and "made millions off [of it]."

    "Where is this interview at? Since you know the money numbers" Here's your chance to use Google, asshole.

      Take a good look people. See how he acts? You can scroll down and see how I addressed you as an adult and you respond like an immature child, upset because people see the type of person you are trying to hide behind an anonymous moniker.

    "NEXT DAY UR SENDING N!GGAS 2 THEIR ROOM LIKE UR OLD?" You must be Gunplay's son if your crack addicted ass can't recognize a play on words. Don't matter Waterboy. I've already spit in your face and pissed in your food, and yet here you are still typing in caps like only a serial killer would.
    • donnis mac
      Notice how he had plenty of time to type this but nothing to support his own comment? He's the person who wants and expects us to take his word just because he says so. This is the same person who refuses to click "reply" and will cut short your FULL statement in his quotations to respond with something foolish & immature but HE has something to say about someone typing in caps. crack addicted ass Waterboy (which btw is corny) spit in your face and pissed in your food like only a serial killer would ^ are words hiding "f*ck you you lowlife n*gg*r" And you've already used "n*gga" today. Schwarz has gotten under your skin.

    Fools Treat Freeway Rick Like He's Some Kind of King of "Real Niggas" But He Was Nothing More Than A Gov't Pawn of Ollie North, Ronald Reagan, and George Bush

  • qas
    hip hop is full of fairytale rappers, who write about shit thats not based on themselves, which anyone can do really as long you got a voice and you can spit.

      he took it way beyond rap though. he really thought he couldnt be touched. going on the radio dissing real street gangs that want his head! claiming to have 1000 gangsters in any city. talking how he moves like a boss then got caught slipping. i wannna say when keeping it real goes wrong but there's nothing real about him

    "how would you possibly know what his company brings in or how many trucks he has?" Cause he said it in an interview.
    • donnis mac
      Here's your chance Quote-Man. Where is this interview at? Since you know the money numbers, can you tell us where it is located or even the name? There isn't any news, description, "about us" of this company anywhere on the internet (29,000,000 Google results), just talk about Nigeria's oil that he wants a part of. The Rick Ross I see with a part in an oil business is a Rick A. Ross, with Whiting Petroleum.
    • donnis mac
      Never mind, I found it. Freeway Ricky did say he has a truck company with 5 trucks (2 trucks are profitable) and on a good week pulls in over $6,000 (interview found at Huffington Post). But someone like me searching for facts finds out that Freeway Ricky only has 1 truck, 3 drivers, and violations for overworked drivers. 2012 records state he had 1 truck and 2 drivers. You're parroting incorrect information and feeding it to the kids. @ whomever brought up the otr company A lawsuit from the other Ross Express in New Hampshire can break him, just as an accident can. No knock at all at the man trying to start over, but this was a poor example.

    You Internet bitches deserve to be taken to task for your ignorance. Neither the rapper nor the drug dealer are worthy of praise nor hate. Each of them serve a purpose. Even if it is nothing more than an example of what to do or not to do. And that may based on perspective. For all the moral talk we have witnessed generations of men women and children who did what they had to do to come up. All while a bunch of broke muthafukas hate on the side line while doing their own dirt. Hypocrisy at it's finest which also why they are never successful; particularly against the elite. A street hustler might tell you there are rules to the game. But what many of them haven't figured out is laws and rules are meant to bent or even broken not just blindly followed. If you want to take it to the religious or moral level of right and wrong just look at nature. If killing is wrong why does everything on this planet kill to eat. Plants have the ability to feel just like we do; science proves this so vegans and vegetarians aren't off the hook. When you think in absolutes like right and wrong you cut yourself off from multiple other perspectives that amount to a level of prosperity. In other words if you stick to the rigidity of these so called rules and laws then you will be ruled by the elite who only follow the rules they can't bend (or break)that govern this universe. Morals are fed to the masses to keep them docile and easy to manipulate. You may think you know better - maybe you do but the proof is your prosperity.

    Haaa of course he'd say this. William runs around lying about being a kingpin in music. Freeway rick was cool with south americans bein overworked, tortured, family's killed and taken form their homes just so cartels can get the CIA to bring drugs for his ass. Both these mugs are awful.

      Yes boss, he lie to the people

    Rick Ross is only a product of the mainstream game of hip hop. Not much is actually real. Take how Jay came up, and the people he suddenly distance his self from as if he was never ever legitimate. There's people like DeHaven claiming he stolen parts of their life style, people who helped make him famous, business associates he's turned his back on. And now hear him rap. I mean if your a certain type of individual, real and you managed to come up your values are going to stay the same and society might not approve of but your still going to have some compassiob if you were lucky enough to survive

    "I'm certified world wide, I could put 1000 gangsters in any hood, To me rich is gangsta, loyal is gangsta, family is gangsta. If that's not gangsta I don't wanna be gangsta. I'm a boss. I went from nothing to bein a 50 million man so don't get it twisted." "I just wanna say that again, I go anywhere! So don't get it twisted. And when you pull up the footage of me walking out in Chicago on the stage with the chinchilla dragging on the floor, you let me know if that's the swagger of somebody that in fear of his life, and you holla back at Ricky Rozay."
