Hip-Hop star Rick Ross has weighed in on a $10 million dollar lawsuit filed by Freeway Ricky Ross on June 18th in Federal Court.
Former Los Angeles drug kingpin Freeway Ricky is seeking $10 million from rapper Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Def Jam and Island Music Group.
Freeway Ricky claims the defendants stole his image and likeness and have made millions in profits at his expense.
“We just gonna let the people deal with that,” rapper Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview. “It’s like owning a restaurant, you’re gonna have a few slip and falls. You get lawsuits, you deal with them, and get them out your way…sometimes you lose.”
Freeway Ricky, who was released from prison in 2009 after twenty years on cocaine trafficking charges, has broken his silence on the lawsuit during an interview with Fox’s Channel 11 News in Los Angeles.
“I did twenty years in prison and beau coups of money went into making this name and what it is today. I feel it was mine, I own it and I want it back. “It’s mine. Its like if somebody stole your car, even though they painted it and put wheels on it that they like, it’s still your car.
