Rick Ross Wins Legal Battle Against "Freeway" Ricky Ross

It looks as though Rick Ross' Teflon Don album will be released on time.

Rapper RIck Ross reported on Friday via his Twitter account (@rickyrozay) that he would be releasing his upcoming album, Teflon Don, unhindered by "Freeway" Ricky Ross' attempt to prevent it.

"[sic] just got update on lawsuit filed against me....injuction to stop release of my album has been denied!!aka tossed out!!..teflon don july20..." wrote Ross on his Twitter page, confirming the album's purported release date.

Teflon Don, the highly-anticipated fourth album from Ross, will feature production from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, The Inkredibles, No. ID and Kanye West, among others. The album will feature guests including Jadakiss, T.I., Tre Songz and Jay-Z.

    RICK ROSS I ADMIT HAS GOT ALOT BETTER WHEN HE FIRST CAME OUT BUT HE AINT NO TOP 5 DEAD OR ALIVE http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=994529&content=music

  • Notorious H.A.T.E.R.

    Black people, I swear. Name themselves after notorious criminals - says a lot about the aspirations of a lot young brothers. What I really don't understand is how Rick Ross is still relevant now that it has been exposed that he was a C.O. and everything he raps about is false.

    • TruToThe

      People still feel his music. People know that Dre uses ghostwriters but we still vibe with his shit.

  • Nico 3

    Nobody cares about the real Rick Ross. He's yesterday's news. If anything, the other Rick Ross is giving him free publicity. These old criminals are just mad they got caught. They get out of prison and have nothing legitimate to go to.

    • Kevin Jackson

      I agree the real rick ross is doing nuthin but to try to stay revelant he shouldve been in bars for life all dat shit he did punk azz mutha fucka . Rick Ross aka telfon don, bose keep doin your thing man your one of the hottest mc's rt now even thou you fabricated some things u still make good music dont even waste your time with scumbags like freeway ricky ross

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    To all you lames, talkn about Ross used this mans name and image to make a name for himself, just shut the hell up. First of all alot you niggas commenting, prolly some young niigas who didn't know shit about the real Rick Ross until he was on his way out of prison. Second, did da rapper still da real rick ross IPOd or notepad while he was in jail for 20yrs and start spittin his lyrics? Man u fuck niggas need to get the hell on and do away with all the hate and jealousy for Rick Ross.. The niggas is nice plain and simple!! He told yo niggas it's Deeper Than Rap.. Him Jay and TI is part of something bigger than you niggas want to believe.. Just gone and google your boy Professor Griff, he might open some of you niggas eyes to whats really going on in the industry.

    • JGrizzlie

      I can co-sign that....half these rappers are imitaiting real gangstas like freeway ricky ross, frank lucas, nicky barnes, larry hoover, etc. if they let him sue rick ross then yo gotti, freeway whos name also comes from the real rick ross and a bunch of others would hvae to get sued to....if u aint pay for ownership of ya name anyone can use it.....shoulda trademarked his name before he got them years and then he would be gettin paid lol

  • I Keeps It Real

    Diddy is the real Teflon Don. That nigga been through real beef with Death Row and remained a boss. He running Rick Ross (the rapper) now and Ross climbing the charts. Legal battles? Freeway lost this before it began. I'm not surprised at all. 50 can get it too. Diddy been doing this too long. The LOX know what's up. This ain't no fluke you cornballs. Follow the money. IT'S BUSINESS!

  • I Keeps It Real

    Word is born, COPS are the biggest gangsters out there. But you nerds wouldn't know that sitting behind your comfy computers. This ain't the movies, the "real" Ross can get his shit pushed in too. What yawl think, the music industry is run by a bunch of pussies? All yawls favorite rappers dead or alive bow down to the man in the suit. If you don't understand what I'm saying then you're probably too young.

  • Fed Up

    Let me put you fucking idiot kids on point... Your boy 50 has PLAYED himself the fuck out. Fuck his talent, this nigga got it twisted when he thought he could treat grown men like children. AND he only acts that way because he has the money and security to get away with it. But if he runs into the right one that won't save him either. He needs to chill and grow the fuck up! Diddy is a business man and he's DAMN GOOD at it. Managing Ross is THE deal ya' dig. Diddy is NOT a rapper. Diddy is also dealt with REAL industry beef unlike 50's made up shit. Rick Ross or Ricky Rozey who gives a flying fuck! This nigga has talent, makes hot records and is on the rise weather you internet nerds like it or not. People aren't pretending to like his music, the shit goes. The real Rick Ross is a drug lord/gangster criminal ass nigga who got caught up like they all do eventually. Why the fuck are any of you looking up to them??? Fuck him and the dirt that he did. He knows how the game goes that's why he tried to get paid off his name rights, it's the hustle plain and simple. He lost this time. Finally please go somewhere with all that shit about Wayne and Drake not being hip-hop. You niggas know damn well Wayne and Drake can spit, I don't give a FUCK if you don't like the songs, those two niggas got bars. Wayne is one of the best to ever do it period and that's real talk. If I have to explain why then you should stop listening to rap music because the shit has passed you by.

    • Heat-357

      If you take this that serious you should get yourself checked.... You have a problem man...

    • HATE MIKE

      fuck boi......fuck all what u say..bitchboi...wayne kissed a man,,and drake is a fucking faggot...lyrics or not... YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER IS A FUCKING FAGG....BITCH BOI....and rick is a IMPOSTOR....but i guess tight jean niccas like u like that sort shit....BITCHHHH!..OHH AND 50 THAT NICCA..FUCK WHAT U SAY...LOL WHATS THE POINT OF DEFENDING YOUR FAVORITE FAGGOTS...#JUS ASKIN

  • Mr. Mogul

    I believe the headline "wins legal battle" is incorrect. The injunction was denied. that doesn't mean the case will not move forward.

    • Nike Champ 718

      Hiphopdx has some of the worst journalism ever. Last week, the headline was "Diddy Takes Shots Clearly Aimed at 50 Cent" (or something like that), then they quote him with NOTHING that says anything about 50 directly. Pretty much negated their own headline.

    This now sets a precedent on fake ni99as in rap. The floodgates have opened wider than ever. I'm gonna start rapping and call myself Kenneth McGriff. Anybody trying to get this money and make a group? I've never sold even a leaf of weed, but hell, why should I when I can live off of the rep and name of the ni99a who was actually doing it?

    Damn Its like Rick Ross is braggin about getting away with phony,,, Its no big deal that he was a CO but it is a big deal that hes a former CO who stole an inmates persona got rich off of it hen brags about getting away with it.... I used to dig Ross back when Everyday im Hustlin dropped but I can't f#ck with him now...

    • 'Nere BellaLoca

      Ya'll getting deep as hell.

    • gasman

      Yea I get what you're saying.

    • Heat-357

      Ya I understand your point but try to understand mine... On his early cd's Rick Ross actually claims to have done the exact same things that Ricky Ross did... And Ricky Ross was in Prison while Rick Ross was a prison gaurd.. Now I understand some rappers choose their name based on their idol... Its just like Lebron James wearing 23... But when Rick Ross's idol says he doesn't like it... Rick Ross ignores him.. Ricky sues him... Then Rick Ross rubs it in his face that he will be legally stealing his name and persona.. Seems pretty shady.. Also Slim Thug's nick name was Boss a couple years before Rick Ross came out.. And the Biggie comparisms just put a bigger target on his chest because Rick Ross uses his image, his false persona, and features from other artists to sell records.. Where Biggie just had raw skills... The only thing they have in common is they are fat and black.. Sorry i strayed off subject but i felt like sayin it... Also you could've mentioned 50 Cent.... He took the name from an early 1900's gun slinger/theif

    • Heat-357

      No.. Im just saying he stole his whole gimmick from Ricky ross.... As far as his music goes his first 2 albums were hot.. Deeper was garbage tho and this one looks like trash too

    • Gasman

      So you think people are buying Rick Ross albums just because he calls himself Rick Ross?

  • bruce.jones

    it is kinda corny the real nigga did the time and the other nigga was makin sure niggas did time then denied it for a year on some frontin shit which make u a fake nigga cuz if u lyin bout that then what else cuz that c.o. shit wasnt serious enough to fuck his career over and not to mention got his buzz up off beef wit fifty(who really sold crack shot at niggas been shot etc) then got lyrically man handled by banks on officer down which i have no clue why he went at banks whose already a battle rappin type nigga its jus funny alot rap niggas is gttin shown as fake but more so it funny how every talkin bout who real and fake and complaining bout fake niggas but stand next to the niggas dont get me wrong i fuck wit ross music but not that shit about his life which really aint for me to care about anyway but it is what it is tho

  • Mike H

    LOL, Rick Ross is trash as hell but Freeway Ricky Ross, as a former drug "kingpin" should know not to be trying to eat off another man plate! He wouldn't try that shit with me though! I'm too pretty for legal battles WHAT ELSE IS THERE LEFT TO SAY? #just askin

  • caktus blak

    im from the east coast "newyork" to be exact and i just have a question for you smart internet thuggs..(not the dumb ones) how come when rick ross denied being a cop / c.o. and the truth came out most of yall thought he was still this drug dealer/gangster/ rapper and loved his music the same? when little wayne kissed baby's lips yall was saying he was the greatest rapper alive and nobody ever questioned the kiss or said anything about his street cred but if we found out 50 cent was a cop / c.o or if 50 cent kissed yayo's lips yall would never let it go.. it would be a every day topic.. some of yall call g unit gay but lil wayne kissing a man on his lips isnt? what the f?ck!!!

    • Heat-357

      I agree with the lil wayne thing but i mean Weezy can get away with things like that cuz he has juice right now... Eminem did alot of f'd up sh!t when he had the juice but noone took his cred away until he started to self destruct... 50 has no juice right now so people are just kickin him while hes down.. When weezy fades away he will get the same treatment... bet me...

    • sean w

      I second the Lil Wayne kissing baby part!!!!

    • Heat-357

      @ SAABIYR.. 50 Cent walked away from the game... But he took 9 shots for it....

    • Saabiyr

      Lil Wayne is the greatest to his people and Ross music has nothing to do with what job he had and ALL rappers lie about drug pushing aint no king pin get to walk away from the game with all his names, contacts dope house locations ect.....

    • HATE MIKE

      I FEEL THAT CAKTUS BLAK....CUZ THEY DUMBFACE BRAINWASHIN ASS'Z IS FUCK UP....REALTALK..FUCK THAT LAME ASS NICCA DRAKE.,,WHAT THA FUCK HAS HE SAID OR DID THAT NICCAS IS CRYIN FOR HIM....gOT DAMN,,,, fuckin faggots... ISNT THERE SOMETHING BETTER TO LISTEN TO THEN FAGS AND FAKE COPS..#JUS SAYIN..LOL

  • Well Well

    LOL! Can't fuck wit Diddy Money! Talk about gettin' the Benny Blanko to you. Ross hot right now anyway.

  • robb234

    imo its pretty hypocritical of the real rick ross to use the law system now against officer ricky i mean, officer ricky is garbage, but at the end of the day, he has made a lot of money legally the real rick ross cant really use the law system now to sue when he had made millions and abused it until he went to jail

  • rickreserve

    i cant say i knew but i was almost sure those folks wasnt going to let this man come up on 10 million dollars and half this mans royaltys.he got 20 years in prison for being one of the biggest drug dealers in american history,but he wants millions of dollars for it from a rapper using his name and image.those white folks aint finna side with you on no day period.they would rather see him doing more time then to make his ass richer.god bless the real rick ross with away to make money in other ventures and deals(no drugs)to bring a positive light to his name so he can move on which i believe he will.i think this guy is very smart cause if you read his story he wasnt a flashy ass dude,he kept it simple and i think he still got some money.so he really didnt lose nothin if you ask me.he did lose 20 years of his life but he is free know and he got some things jumping off with floyd mayweather who been doing big thangs he will be alright.william roberts looks alright everytime you see him so they both have little worrys.

      "good for the bawse! his album is fire ill pick that up and to the so called real rick ross go hustle to get some doe instead of tryin to tale another man earned money for free" You do realize that statement is a complete contradiction considering the circumstances ? "The Bawse" used this man's name and image as the foundation for his career , so who is "tryin to tale another man earned money for free"?

    Eh, I really canr feel too bad for a convicted drug dealer, but in all fairness, This Black version of the Fat Bastard in the "Austin Powers" movies did bite the guys, name, image, even his ugly ass Grizzly adams beard.......Take a picture of freeway Rick in the 80's, add 200 lbs to it, and you'll get see where I'm coming from But like I said, no big loss.......A piece of human trash losing a lawsuit to phony, Medioce rapper......So be it
