"Freeway" Ricky Ross Believes Rick Ross Is Funded By Police

posted Friday October 25 ,2013 at 12:00PM CDT | 363 comments

"Freeway" Ricky Ross calls Jay Z's comments made in Vanity Fair magazine about his drug dealing past, "corny."

During a recent appearance on the Murder Master Music Show, former drug kingpin Freeway Ricky Ross shared his thoughts on Maybach Music Group artist Rick Ross, an artist he challenged to a charity boxing match just months ago.

Ricky Ross, who has undergone numerous legal battles with Ross over the use of his stage name, shared his belief that the Miami emcee is funded by the police union. According to the former drug trafficker, police are financing Ross’ career to keep prisons filled with young men.

"I believe that he’s being financed by the police union and keeps spreading bullshit to the youngsters, so they can keep filling up the penitentiaries cause he ain't selling no music,” said Ricky Ross. “They keep playing him on the radio and keep putting out all these big, expensive videos, but he ain't selling no music. So, somebody is shootin' off money. And I believe that the police union behind it."

Ricky Ross also shared his thoughts on another popular rapper during his radio interview. Prior to speaking on Ross, he referenced a recent interview Jay Z took part in with Vanity Fair. In his interview with the magazine, which Ricky Ross referred to as “corny,” the Brooklyn emcee commented on his drug dealing past and witnessing the impact drugs had on his community.

"I'm just out here pounding the concrete, man,” said Ricky Ross. “I just left Orlando. I was in Detroit just hitting these high schools up really letting them know about these dudes who out here faking. Talking about they sold dope and read that shit and it’s so corny. I was just reading on the airplane the other day, the Vanity Fair with Jay Z in it, talking about that he sold crack. I was just reading it and it was so corny. These dudes just don't keep it one hundred. They was good boys and they went to school and they got college degrees and somebody gave them a good job, you know? And they doing alright right now. Everybody wanna be d-boys, but they don't carry it like d-boys. They don’t have d-boy stories.”

Later in the interview, after being applauded for his recent work with kids and others in the community, Ricky Ross addressed the acceptance artists like Ross and Jay Z receive from many including President Barack Obama.

"That's crazy that you said that, but they accepted by everybody,” he said. “These people let them go and talk to their kids and pay ‘em to come and talk to their kids. The president of the United States will invite them to the White House. But then with me, I did 20 years in prison and I’m talking about not sell drugs and you gotta try to make it a better way…When I sold dope I believed that it was cool at that time to sell dope, you know? And that’s why I was selling dope. Now, I don't feel like that anymore. I don’t feel that it’s cool to sell dope anymore and that's why I do what I do right now.”

Ricky Ross has appeared in court several times over the past few years due to lawsuits he filed against the Maybach Music Group helmsman. In January of this year, it was reported that both Ricky Ross and Ross were scheduled to appear in court in August.

And in May of this year, Ricky Ross offered to take on the rapper in a charity boxing match. Ross did not respond to his request.

“And you know what, I would take him too if we do it for charity,” said Ricky Ross. “If he wanted to go down, we go in and we donate all the money to some kids. I’d be willing to do that…Yeah, even though he ‘bout 400 pounds bigger than me. That don’t mean nothing. Cause he look like he ‘bout to have a heart attack anyway.”

    "Besides, X don't need Ross" Oh that's right because X has so much going on for him right now. No movies in production. No new music. He does have 5 kids on the way.

    LMFAO@ his shirt. You've gotta be fucking kidding me. He has a shirt with his face on it and a crown atop his head, that says "The real Rick Ross", but yet he's not trying to glorify or benefit from his 'former' life. C'mon man...I hope these niggas go through with the boxing match and knock each other dead in the ring like Rocky and Apollo. Rap is the best comedy going right now.

      the full t-shirt says "THE REAL RICK ROSS AINT A RAPPER"
  • hmm
    Well heres the thing.. Despite the way Rick Ross acts he has never had an album that sold over 1 million yet. BUT he does have decent sales (like 400k-700k)..so thats good enough to make another album. And as far as the radio play thing goes...someone has to be on the radio. I dont wanna hear Ross on the radio all the time but maybe the consensus of listeners do. My only issue with Ross, 2Chainz, Pusha T, and all the older rappers pushing 40 is responsibility. I get that its just music but at what point do you show some responsibility for drug/thug rap lyrics? Its like they gonna be over 40 rapping about drugs and shit to peoples children who think that shit is cool. I think ross is talented but I don't like his over the top drug lyrics..

    William Officer Ricky Rawse Roberts (born January 28, 1972), better known by his stage name Officer Ricky, or Rick Ro$$ on his album covers (for parental advisory reasons) is an American police officer, rapper, porn superstar and nine time WWE champion. Throughout his so-called "larger-than-life" life, Officer Ricky has become an American symbol for his patriotic contributions to police work, (c)rap music, pornography and even professional wrestling. Officer Ricky is now most famous for his work in the music industry. He has founded his own music label, Maybutt Muzik Groupies, on which he has released all of his albums. His debut album Porn of Miami, released in 1983, was certified 10x platinum within three days after its release. It went on to become the greatest selling album of all time with sales of over 120 million copies sold in the United States alone. However, it soon became the second greatest selling album of all time, after Ricky released his second album, Trilla Cop, in 1987. This album was followed by Deeper Than Crap (1999) and Teflon Porn (2005), all of which became the greatest selling album of all time upon their release. His fifth album, "God Exercises, I Don't" will be released in 2142 and is expected to become the new greatest selling album of all time.

    "Both of you are retarded. Wow, you're still wrong about everything, bitch." You are either an annoying bridge resident troll who argues with other people and trolls to create an illusion or mockery of people who take the Internet to seriously by argue with yourself/others, or you are legitimately a fucking irate, wigger manchild. Perhaps you are a decoy troll and I am arguing with you just so you can make an example out of me and others (trolls and non-trolls). I think either you and other trolls are paid to comment and argue to get people coming back to HHDX, or you are all true lowlives. Or, you could all be the same pathetic hermit of a person. For now, I'm sure you're just a waste of space and I'm overthinking it with the possible scenarios. Either way, fuck off. P.S. - Another quote of yours: "Both of you are fucking idiots" "All of you are fucking idiots" "You're a fucking retard/idiot." "Wrong bitch, I'm NEVER wrong. My jackass butthole is too uptight and stubborn to admit it can be wrong. I sometimes when I talk out of my ass it stings from the buttfuck."

    "But, DMX was able to write as well as any poet or English professor of his time" That's not a fair comparison. English professors and poets don't bark or growl.

    "dmx (lol, ask anybody, x did real time in the streets)" He was robbing people at gunpoint. That doesn't take skill. That's an uneducated loser with no job and no IQ too lazy to get a job and provide for his family.
    • HRH
      The thing that you're too quick to overlook is that DMX did rob people at gunpoint. DMX did lack a formal education. DMX didn't have a taxpaying position until his career took off. But, DMX was able to write as well as any poet or English professor of his time. DMX delivers every verse of his with ability to explain the emotions, sights, sounds in the life of the anti-hero, so much, that you find yourself supporting him in his chase for a relief from the guilt trip that he faces with himself everyday.
