"Freeway" Ricky Ross Asked To Pay A Portion Of Rapper Rick Ross' Legal Fees

"Freeway" Ricky Ross is asked to pay a portion of Rick Ross' legal fees. Still, Ross maintains that "it ain't over."

A judge in the case of Freeway Ricky Ross against rapper Rick Ross has ruled that Freeway Ross must pay a portion of the Florida rapper's legal costs. The judge ruled that Freeway must pay $500,000 on behalf of the Maybach Music boss while the rapper must pay $800,000. According to Ross, this cost was brought down from more than a million dollars. 

This is yet another portion of an ongoing saga between Freeway Ricky Ross and rapper Rick Ross. Freeway is arguing that rapper Ross, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts II, is using his name and likeness to advance in his career.    

“We believe that every time he goes on the radio he’s re-using my name, but the judge ruled that it’s one continuous use,” Freeway Ricky Ross told AHH. “I believe that those are all re-uses of my name, separate and different from when he started to call himself Rick Ross. They were trying to get me to pay $1.3 million, but she [Judge Miller] knocked it down to $500,000." 

In his interview, Freeway Ross maintained that he will continue fighting. 

“It aint over and it aint never gonna be over until things get straight,” Freeway added. “I aint gonna stop. I am going to keep going until I get my name back and whatever else I got coming.”

Freeway Ricky Ross has another case against Warner Brothers for promoting the rapper's career and may depose executives involved in Ross' career like Diddy and others soon.

    Rick Ross the fake fat rapper is a joke. Saying he knows Noriega???? Are you kidding me. He was working in the jails as a co for fks sake. Freeway is the real deal, pretty sure he would have met Noriega since he was flipping hundreds of birds. Just doesn't make sense the judges let that fake fatty take freeways name and LIFE STORY.

    "Nas was never a kingpin at all. But he did actually sell drugs" But to what extent nobody knows. I think people who listen to rap have come to realize over the years that what they hear and what they see are two different things. Plus the obvious question begs to be answered, why would a mainstream rapper whose everywhere making legit money need to be a drug lord anyway? Most REAL drug lords don't record songs talking about what they do. That would defeat the point of moving in silence.

  • Sammy

    The worst mistake Rozay ever made in his career was using that raggedy name, he should have stuck with Teflon tha Don. You might as well use Sammy the Bull or Alpo if you gonna use Freeway Rick. SMH. Ross should have never used a snitches name, Freeway Rick is the west-coast version of Nicky Barnes.* I'm glad the Coke/Mafioso era is dying because I was tired of rappers adopting names from racist white gagsters or Italian mobsters: Capone Kapone Beanie Sigel Yo Gotti Dutch Irv Gotti Kurrupt Young Gotti Daz Dillinger Gillie da Kid Wu Gambinos Luni Corleone Kool "Giancana" Rap Myalansky Butch Cassidy Sheek Louch Ty Nitty Styles Pinero Mussolini* Napoleon The Notrious "Frank White"* Then you got: Scarface French Montana Noriega Tragedy Khadafi Yaki Khadafi Makaveli Nas Escobar Castro Idi Amin Then you got Jim Jones named after a cult leader who massacred Black people? The real A.Z. was a hustler from Harlem The real 50-Cent was a stick-up kid from Brooklyn ^^^At least use a black criminal for your stage-name. Thankfully in 2012 we have Kendrick Lamar :) !

    • Check history

      You have a valid point about glorifying racist "Italian and Jewish gansters", but to clarify Idi Amin was an African dictator, Fidel Castro is dictator of Cuba, Kadafi or Mommar Quadafi was the dictator of Lybia, Napoleon was the dictator of France, Mussolini was the dictator of Italy and Makavelli was a historical prince and warrior. Noriaga was the dictator of Panama. Frank White and Antonio "Tony" Montana were fictional crime characters, though Francis White was not racist his whole team was Black or Latino. I don't think any of these criminals black or white should be glorified.

    This Freeway bum needs to stfu. Taking somebodys name and life does not make you a succesful rapstar, ask phillyrapper Freeway. The reason Rosay is making so much money is because he got the right voice, presence, ear for beats and eye for talent. But most importantly because he works his ass off.

People knew Nas wasn't a drug lord, much the same people know Rick Ross isn't one, but here's the thing. They don't care.

    • B Eazy

      Nas was never a kingpin at all. But he did actually sell drugs. Exaggeration vs Fabrication. Huge difference. Rozay was the EXACT OPPOSITE of who he claims to be. Not just a regular dude fronting, an actual law enforcement agent. AND he LIED about it. Repeatedly. Even when he was shown pictures. And records. I like his music, but lets not pretend here like we dont know that Rozay got a CB4 story like no other.

SHit think about all the families you've harmed and u want to be recognize as a hero or some shit, acting like u did good in the hood, Nigga u was a pon in a white mans game, they used u to destroy the Black Community, U had no morals or nothing, so Nigga no one is gonna feel sorry for ass. Get a real job, and work like everyone else. Just cuz Robert used your name don't mean u wrote his lyrics or created music that people enjoy... And b4 everyone here starts saying that his lyrics aint real or whatever, STFU u know how easy it is to pick up a kilo, or a pound of weed, or a boat of some E pills, as long as u got the bread, the hardest part is not getting caught pushing it. So who knows if Robert "Rozay" sold any, doesn't mean it was right tho, and im sure he wasn't on Freeway level, shit who really is pushing like that, and is gonna rap about it...

      really is that the reason he is trying to extort him for millions of dollars, nigga no one will forget what his name is associated with, its one thing to say stop using my name when regarding negative issues, but he's suing him because Rosay is capitalizing off of the lifestyle he lived, ask all those kids whose mothers and fathers, either OD'ed or are living on skid row, if there parents get a second shot, nope, like I said he deserves no brakes, and no rewards, stop trying to make it out to seem the Freeway Rick Ross is a humble honest man, nigga was nothing of that sort, and shit he knew people in the hood were gonna idolize him, so like i said, nigga die broke, u don't deserve to have nothing positive towards u, how about u go to skid row and look what u created and help clean that shit up, give everyones life back , then maybe u should deserve a break till then, I don't care if u did time, they should have locked u up for life, for all the lives u ruined

    • Nike Champ 718

      Freeway Rick acknowledges all the wrong he did. He did his time for that. And now he doesn't want that name associated with the stupid negative ish that Officer Ricky raps about. If Officer Ricky was talking about positive stuff, then this might not be that big of an issue. But since Officer Ricky raps about all the stuff that Freeway Ricky actually did and went to jail for, that's different. Especially since Fatboy makes it seem like selling drugs is as easy as tying your shoes, and there's no repurcussions from selling drugs.

  • Nike Champ 718

    Just so I don't have to repeat this because you 90's babies are too stupid to know simple laws at statutes: YOU CANNOT TRADEMARK YOUR GIVEN NAME. That's why Freeway Rick never trademarked the name his mother gave him, Rick Ross. Otherwise, don't you think people named Michael Jordan would be getting sued if they never played for the Bulls? Idiots.

    • Im Not Famous

      Nike Champ 718, I have to disagree. A person can trademark a name. If you would like a recent example of this happening google "Blu Ivy" the name of Jay-Z and Beyonce's child. You will see that not only can it be done but they are not the first to do it. As far as that Michael Jordan example goes, no one else named Michael Jordan is trying to profit off the name Michael Jordan by linking themselves to the Bulls Michael Jordan's existence. Freeway Rick Ross' argument is that rapper Rick Ross use of the name has diluted the name Rick Ross and causes confusion in the marketplace. There can be two Michael Jordan's with trademark protection, just as there can be two companies named Delta with trademark protection (one that flies airplanes, the other that makes faucets) as long as there is no confusion its fine. And before you respond calling me a bunch of n-words or something else. I'm in my 2nd year of law school. I dont know everything but I know this.

    Nobody cared when Nas was calling himself Escobar ^ and for the 5384859598th time, Nas never released a studio album using the name Pablo Escobar. 50 asked for PERMISSION. Freeway asked for PERMISSION. Lyor Cohen, LA Reid, Kevin Liles, Jay-Z, Gunplay KNOW William took this man's name and likeness and made a career using his "tales". But it's NOT the same as Nas using a NICKNAME like Escobar, this is a terrible example to prove Rozay's stance. 50 Cent and Freeway are better examples, and BOTH OF THEM asked for PERMISSION.

      Misi you're making yourself look bad. That college degree didn't teach you that they are using this man's name and past accolades to generate revenue. I'm pretty sure William had the chance to use his government name but decided the marketing strategy of using Rick Ross was a better way to go because with that name comes an aura of money, power and street level acceptance. BTW, asking why this man didn't trademark his name is just plain stupidity on your behalf considering he was in jail. We'll see how you react when some kid from Seattle decides to quit his job and name himself Big Meech and rap about how he runs his streets like the BMF story.

    • misi

      so why didn't he trademark the name then? now he is looking for petty ways to extort somebody who solely gets criticized for taken a name and running with it, do you think rick ross is the only one to do this? is his success based on the name or the hardwork he has put into his music??. you are clearly an idiot who is jealous of rozay's success like he said "even the black folks hate to see another n**** made it" please stop making excuses for kids, im sick of hearing it, if a kid cant use his imagination to figure out the true meaning behind the messages its his fault. ive been listening to rap and hip hop since 96 but i got a college degree and a full time job with a clean record and good credit

    This is a proof the government or whatever else making the world go round (money, bankers, jews, "secret society") are doing their thang in this business to control population. How can you glorify violence, drug dealin with somebody (ex officer) stealing a gangster name, while the actual gangster recognized that what he has done was wrong and shouldnt be glorified... Plus the real Ricky Freeway Ross got to pay for all this bullish I say fkuc corporation, fkc maybach music group, fuck anybody givin credits to the big ass Rozay. Not hatin, just stating facts

      YOU CAN'T TRADEMARK YOUR GIVEN NAME!!!

    • >_

      Yeah... "im a drug dealer, and im making millions... i should go copyright my name so some fat fucking CO in the future cant use my name and stories to sell records" you are fucking retarded. lmfao

    • Big Dan

      The govt is trying to control population and this is your proof!!!!!!!!!? The dumbness is officially too much. Listen, obviously Rick Ross the rapper took his name from the drug dealer, but I am sure the "original" Rick Ross did not trade mark his name for entertainment uses, so he has no basis to say no one can use it. Is he going to use all the people who's parents named him Rick Ross. If his name is that important to him, he should have trade marked it.

    PEACE Do not give a damn about these two clowns but I understand that the rapper/wanna be mobster Ross gets money in his field but where is the ex-ganster/wanna be mogul/Rat/wanna be seen as a victim/pariah Ross getting his money from? Get the fuck outta here with that stash money non-sense, heres one to grow on: thief robs a bank, stashes loot (e.g. $1,000,000), gets caught, does 10 years, comes back, goes to get stash money and deposits said money in a bank and no one questions him about it. Dumb fucks PEACE

    Keep up the fight! Rick Ross is the biggest phony in the game! If you tell a lie often and enough times soon people accept is as truth. That is enblematic of Rick Ross' career.

    I think this would have to be some of the saddest moments in hip hop history. Stealing a real G's identity Even growing a beard to look similar Telling stories of living the gangster life when you really a correctional officer!!! Hip hop used to be real. Filled full of fakes now that all the young kids idolize. Sad days.

    Rick Ross has said a number of times him & Freeway are cool, he reached out to him and showed him love and respect, plus Freeway is a nickname not his birth name and he dont rap about being a cocaine boss

    I think it's time for William to get touched Rick Ross got a bunch of street niggas behind him but he gotta be smart about it and just give William a little scare

  • Burmy

    And the rapper Freeway was never brought up in this becuase?

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, because they have NEVER been cops who were engaged in criminal activity.

      Calling yourself "Freeway" only is one thing, but stealing the man's government name? I think that's a lot worse. Plus Officer Ricky raps about living the opposite lifestyle that he really lived, which probably rubs Ricky Ross a lot worse than a rapper calling himself Freeway. Freeway's a good MC too. I'm sure Ricky Ross has love for him.

      because he wasnt a fucking correctional officer and he reached out to freeway ricky and showed him respect

    This will result in Freeway Ricky putting a hit on Rick Ross.

    To all of you commenting without reading the article fully, Freeway has to pay 500K for William Roberts' legal fees, but William Roberts has to pay 800K in damages for the "continuous use" of Freeway Ricky Ross' name. For those of you who aren't intellectually inclined, that means that Freeway Ricky Ross walks away with 300K at the end of the deal.

    • 2nd Anon

      Thanks for the reply You're right about this post being poorly written (or maybe my lack of comprehension) It doesn't say whether or not anyone has won Good luck in school

    • I'm Not Famous

      Im not 100% certain because the article is poorly written but what I think has happened is that Freeway Rick Ross and rapper Rick Ross are having to split rapper Rick Ross' legal fees and the judge divided up how they were to be split. This does happen in civil cases from time to time - in America its not like the British system where the loser pays for the winners legal fees but if an opposing side (in this case rapper Rick Ross) can put forth a good argument abut being harassed or something they can get a judge to award them legal fees. Basically as a warning to the other side (Freeway Rick Ross) to stop it because we you have no case and we will keep taking your money if you force us to do some work. Rapper Rick Ross' lawyers are protecting rapper Rick Ross' bottom line by forcing Freeway Rick Ross to pay for them defending rapper Rick Ross. If rapper Rick Ross had to pay Freeway Rick Ross this article would signal victory somewhere. Also, rapper Rick Ross' total legal fees were 1.3M which rapper Rick Ross tried to get Freeway Rick Ross to pay in its entirety. If you add up the split 500K and 800K you get that same 1.3M. And before anyone jumps up and down and says I don't know anything I'm a second year law student, I'm not perfect but this is what I do.

      I'd assume for dragging the case out since this isn't the first time he's fought it. I think the 500K is probably for the extra fees Roberts had to pay in addition to the very first case.

    • Anonymous

      I get that, but if the judge ruled in Freeway Ricky's favor, why should he pay for the legal fees?
