"Freeway" Ricky Ross Continues Legal Fight Against Rapper Rick Ross

The ongoing battle for ownership of the name continues as "Freeway" Ricky Ross is given 10 days to amend his lawsuit against Warner Brothers in his legal fight with MMG rapper Rick Ross.

Florida rapper Rick Ross and Freeway Ricky Ross have been engaged in an ongoing dispute over rights to the name. This week, a federal judge ruled that Freeway Rick Ross could continue his case in court against Warner Brothers, home of rapper Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group, rejecting the label's motion to dismiss the case. 

Freeway Ricky Ross was given 10 days to amend his lawsuit, a suit that can claim unfair business practice, false advertising and unjust enrichment against Warner Brothers.

This ongoing dispute began in 2010 as Freeway Ricky Ross felt the rapper Ross was using his birth name to sell records. On top of this, Freeway Ross felt the rapper was using his status as a former drug dealer to gain noteriety as well.

In 2011, Freeway Ricky Ross told HipHopDX's Paul W. Arnold what his case was all about. 

"See, if I can show that there’s a likeness in what he’s saying and with my actual story, then that’s where the conflict comes in at. If a guy has worked all of his life at Burger King, and then he comes and says, Well, the guy is using my likeness. And the guy is rappin’ about selling drugs, then they would say, Oh, well you never sold drugs, you worked at Burger King. But in my situation, by me actually living that lifestyle everybody knows that I lived that lifestyle, knows that that was me. Now say for instance if he actually sold drugs – which he wouldn’t of named himself after somebody else, ‘cause drug dealers don’t name themselves after other drug dealers. It’s usually a competition thing with other drug dealers, so they would never degrade themselves to [take their name from] another drug dealer. ‘Cause that would be like saying that he was better than me, or he was bigger than me. And that just doesn’t happen in the street. But if it happened, then he would have an argument to say this was really me. [Laughs] So that’s pretty much where that [stands]."

Freeway Rick Ross has not been successful in his disputes in the past. However, in the aforementioned 2011 interview, he expressed that he would continue to fight this. 

"I was willing to go all the way to the Supreme Court when I fought it the first time. I’m not afraid of courts. I fought ‘em from a jail cell, when you have to sleep on the floor and they wake you up at three in the morning, [where] you sleep on a concrete floor, next to a steel toilet with piss on it… So if I can do that, now I can walk inside the courtroom, and sit on a cushioned bench. They dealing with a different animal. I’m a different animal than most of the people walking the street now."

    am convinced Dre is gay, he bought another man he has not know n for long a hundred thousand dollar watch for his b/day...why not for Snoop, Kurupt or Warren G? Dre is Gay...plus Superhead did say nigga can't fuck to save his life now i don't care how much of a millionaire or billionaire you are, but if you can't satisfy a woman sexually, it means nothing you just a rich miserable wack ass fuck

    Ross should just change his name to 'Hip Hop Cop' its cool to take names of drug dealers and all, but Ross did more than that....he stole the identity as well the look (beard), the lifestyle, history and he claims he sold drugs Ross went on to jack Cory Gunz album title, 'God Forgives but i don't' if Ross says he don't forgive, why da fuck should hip hop fans forgive him for being a former cop? Dre is also a hypocrite just yesterday he was saying, 'fuck the police' with NWA, now he's buying the same police expensive diamond watches and making songs with them??? everybody in hip hop is jus real fake man...black people just can't do nothing on their own

    Get what is yours Freeway. I agree with him from his stance on the matter, it's completely taking someone elses identity just to sell music that isn't even good. the Floss (F stands for Fraud) doesn't even deserve to be where he is because he is lying to people & too many are too slow to see he is false.

    Maybe Rozay should've reached out to RR before he was released which was what I originally hoped for because now it's messy as hell I believe it could have been worked out different, though Rick Ross had somewhat valid arguments about Rozay. IMO being a drug dealer is nothing to be proud of anyway so it's understandable to be fighting about a name but the lifestyle? Shit, I could see Marky Mark (Walberg vs Teddy riley's brother from wreks n effect) or Dr and Doctor Dre but I guess it's about the similarities between these too that has everybody's panties in a bunch.

  • Neon Voyce

    Stupid people out here...It's a big difference between taking a name from someone and rap about your own bullshit like Daz, Nas (Escobar), Freeway, and taking a name and the whole life of someone and pretend to be your own story. This is not what Hip Hip is meant to be. Of course the real Rick Ross is doin it for money and fame but think about it if all you muhfuckas hatin on him someone else took your life as his own what would you do...

    • Anonymous

      ^ you can find elements is gangster stories in every rapper's songs. those lyrics could apply to anyone. listen to nas "it was written album" and both of biggie's albums. for someone make such a hyper-dramatic claim as "ross stole his entire life in his music" and not be able to name even one specific instance where ross did so speaks for itself.

    • ETL

      Do you really believe he was trafficking accross the Atlantic? RR dealt with Nicaraguans not Noriega but the Contras. Not quite the exact same stories but you gotta add and subtract something to make it your own. In fact he has claimed to move the same kind of weight the real RR was moving really? Why rap then?

      all you people saying ross "stole" freeway's stories. can you specifically tell us which ones?

  • ETL

    I think all the other rappers that have stolen their names from a crime figure 50cent, CNN, Napoleon, Yo gotti etc. took their names from cats that are either dead or not into hip hop, that's the difference.

    • Anonymous

      agreed. my issue is with these bitch ass niggas who apply different standards to ross based on their own personal dislike as oppposed to objective critical thinking. I wish there were more people like you on dx who were objective in their reasoning instead always on some petty hypocritical shit.

    • ETL

      And in all reality, any rapper that have stolen their name is open for the same thing Rozay is going thru, he just happens to be the first if RR wins it would set precedent for more to come. No justification about it wrong is wrong just like with sampling after Biz Markie's case.

    • Anonymous

      so that's the difference you were talking about. a difference which makes ross look better than other rappers for taking an alive nigga's name as opposed to one who can't defend himself. Then yes you're right, that is the difference.

      No dumbasses, they just ain't around to sue.

    He won't get a dime from Rozay. But a lot of cats in here seems like forget one fact: that man, the original Freeway is not your noname, average joe drug dealer. That man built an international empire worth more than 600.000.000 $! Just think about it, he reached Jay-Z money straight from trading white! You can argue what other rappers stole from real life criminals, but come on, thats a whole another league. Its obvious that Rozay is just a fake copycat, his life is nothing but a huge lie. The real headache for Freeway will be proving the "exclusivity" about Ross' identity thievery. You can say that there are a lot of resemblance in their names, outfit, stories about being a drog kingpin etc. But how can you prove without a doubt that he copied YOUR image & how much is that image's part in his success? Add Rozay's money to that, and the case is practically gone. Of course, Freeway just wants a little dough from the Officer, and he has valid points, too bad the common sense is not enough before the jury.

  • Ricky Rozay

    This nigga need to give it up, he only goin after Rozay cuz he know Ross the hottest nigga in the game atm. Why isnt this nigga suin freeway then. He only suin rozay cuz this old lame ass see dollar signs.

    If the REAL Rick Ross wasn't a drug dealer, this would be a slam dunk. Problem is, no judge in his right mind will take this seriously. He wants money, and since Rozay won't give him any he's shouting from the bleachers trying to get attention.

    rick ross the rapper is the biggest fraud to ever hit the rap game. and theres been tons of frauds. vanilla ice is a real nigga compared to willie roberts. rick got some joints mostly cuz he gets hot production and has a certain sound that makes him unique but hes a disgraceful human being. the artist is basically a constructed image being backed by def jam. according to the rapper william roberts he never heard of the drug dealer freeway ricky ross and the judge believed him. sounds like a pay off to me. def jams legal team throws money at a judge to let the facade keep earning. hope the real rick wins the case. seems like a good brother all things considered. he was just another misguided youth that fell into lots of money. he did a stretch let him live.

  • illone

    I just don't see a US court aiding a convicted drug dealer capitalizing or dealing drugs; before or after the fact. Many times when infamous criminals are sentenced, part of the sentence that they are in no way allowed to profit from their crime. i.e. They can't sell their story for movie or book purposes. It doesn't seem that was part of Ricky's sentence, but I don't see the US court helping to make him rich.

    • Ramiro

      I guess that's the difference right there, everyone in their right mind know Rick Ross is just entertainment, whereas 2pac had a mission and his image has often been badly portrayed by the media. Did he portray a gangster image? yeah but around all that Deathrow business going on I really dont doubt he really did live that life. Not saying he did everything he raps about, of course, but 2pac did shoot two off duty cops for beating another person. I just think without the influence of Suge and other experiences Pac went through he wouldnt be considered "gangsta."

    • Anonymous

      ^i hear you. but the fact is that pac to another niggas name, just like ross, portrayed a gangster image in his music which perhaps did not coincide with his real life... just like ross.

    • Ramiro

      In the sense i agree with you accusing just Rick Ross alone is stupid. The reason why i defend Pac though its cause he didnt just fabricate his image. Look at when he first came out he came with that knowledge and uplifting songs. Later he still had that but mixed with paranoia after almost getting killed. Add that to suge knight pumping him all kinds of shit. 2pac did end up embracing that lifestyle but he never liked it and he always said that.

But to be honest like I said i have nothing against Rick Ross, dont hate him, dont listen to his music, i havent even seen him in person. All I'm saying is that i think its unfair for 2pac to be up there cause there is a big difference. Ricky Ross feels Rick Ross is using his name and his whole image. 2pac used his name not his whole image.

      i wasnt directly calling you a hater. just stating a fact. freeway rick ross made alot of claims.. they all got thrown out. how's that for answering your first part smart ass? the outlaws were named after historial tyrants. look up the word "tyrant". i never said anything about america... i simply stated a historical fact and quoted the words of Edi himself. and like i said, does it matter who they stole their names from? i dont care if 2pac called himself ronald mcdonald. its still theft. and edi rapped about being a notorious criminal. they're called "the outlaws".

      No just clarifying it for you cause if you're quick to call them criminals make sure you also call America criminals. Oh and by the way EDI wasnt rapping about being a tyrant. I also like how you completely ignored the first part of what i said cause you obviously had nothing to say.

    • Anonymous

      the issue was never establishing yourself it was using another man's name and therefore being "fake". None of the outlawz were established artists yet they all named themselves after notorious criminals. every time you ross haters' frail argument gets exposed you try to create a new one that makes no sense.

    • Ramiro

      i think putting 2pac out there is pretty dumb as he had already established himself and everyone knew him as 2pac. Makavelli didnt gain him any popularity it was just an alias used for the Outlawz. Hence Kastro, EDI Mean, Napolean, Hussein Fatal ect. names.

      plus considering the reputation of Death Row records at the time and the ties Suge had with some of the most dangerous gang bangers in L.A. you cannot say these dudes were not gangsters Suge was in the drug traffic too back in the days and he used the money Death Row records made to "clean" the dope money and turning into some legal money. watch the Death Row documentary made by an english reporter who investigate on the matter man. Suge corrupted cops and was definitely tied to the gang bangers in the streets. and considering Tupac was his homie back in the days and how wild the man was when Suge was around him you can tell they actually were acting like gangsters but Rick Ross ? except walking off the crosswalk i don't know what the fuck he has done illegally

      please shut the fuck up man for your own good you're just embarrassing yourself right now and you bother people with your ignorance there is a major difference between studying a philosph's legacy and learning about his knowledge to reuse it in your everyday life than PRETENDING to be a FAKE gangsta who sold kilos and built an empire on drug money PLUS rick ross never admitted everything he says in his music is a lie. the man truly believes he did everything he says. so if you wanna dickride be my guest. but nigga please ! when you dickride, just do it quietly without disturbing people with your bullshit. just enjoy the dick and shut the fuck up thank you very much

      who cares if makaveli was a gangster. he wasn't 2pac. and 2pac stole his name, added a k ... and even admitted himself to stealing it. "i study great thinkers until they are great to me no more. that's why i stole makaveli. I took that shit and added a k"." pac straigh up admitting that he stole this nigga's identity after reading about him. and yall have the nerve to dog ross. like anon. said the hypocrisy is sickening.

      so its only stealing if you take their beards. what a lame fucking argument. nas stole his story from gangsters and movies he watched. 2Pac even called him on it. So did biggie, hell even pac himself stole his raps from movies. either way they were all fake gangster stories which never happened. and Yall act like biggie's "warning" was a true story? yall act like all of nas criminal raps were real. he got that shit from movies and escobar. lol gtfoh. yall try so hard to justfify your Bias against ross but no matter how hard you try you just cant incriminate ross without also incriminated nas, biggie, pac, and all these other rappers who stole their entire persona's from gangsters.
