Former drug kingpin “Freeway” Rick Ross has had a lengthy battle with hip-hop superstar Rick Ross over the latter’s appropriation of his name. Once word got to Freeway Rick regarding the attempt on Rozay’s life earlier this week, his reaction was, as should be expected, decidedly smug.
“I’m not surprised that it happened — given recent ongoings,” Rick told HipHopDX when asked for his take on the incident.
“When someone doesn’t understand the street rules they get confused and incidents like this can take place,” he said. “I’m still dealing with ongoing litigation about something as basic as using my name and identity, that should have been dealt with properly a long time ago.”
Freeway Rick will be taking Ross back to court in August, the latest chapter in a legal fight that has been dragging on for years.
“No ill will is wished upon anyone,” Rick was sure to add. “But when you tell these stories about the streets, you have to be careful.”
