Back in 2010 former drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross demanded rapper Rick Ross stop exploiting his name.
Freeway’s lawsuit was thrown out of court once and now it’s been thrown out again.
The L.A. County Superior Court tossed the case yesterday and the real Ricky Ross responded via All Hip Hop.
“Basically they’re saying [I waited too long], I should have filed a lawsuit five days after I got out of prison.”
“I feel that the law has let me down. I feel not only have they let me down, but they’ve let down the black community as a whole.”
“You have these people going around portraying us in an image that’s not what we are. I didn’t sell drugs so I could sit in everybody’s face, drive around in a Rolls-Royce and wear big gold chains. I sold drugs because I was poor, illiterate, didn’t know any better and had no other opportunities.”
