“Freeway” Ricky Ross plans to take rapper Rick Ross and Warner Bros. Records to court this August in the continuing fight over his name.
According to NY Post, the former drug kingpin is moving ahead with his case against Ricky Rozay for allegedly stealing his name to create a career. Top music executives have already been subpoenaed for the trial, with ex-Warner executive Lyor Cohen, current CEO Stephen Cooper and Warner director Edgar Bronfman Jr. expected to testify.
Freeway claims that the Maybach Music Group leader has “exploited and misused [his name] since he went to prison” and “made millions off [of it].”
This marks the latest chapter in the ongoing saga between Freeway and Ross. In August, a judge ruled that Freeway must pay $500,000 on behalf of the Maybach Music boss while the rapper must pay $800,000 in legal costs.
