Round 3: Freeway Ricky Ross vs William Roberts…The Name Battle Continues
It appears that the fight over the name Rick Ross is far from over as the “Real” Rick Ross is not laying down and letting the rapper steal his name.
The former drug dealer’s camp released the following statement:
Hip-Hop fans its ‘back for round three. Freeway Ricky Ross is back at it again, but with added force to his legal team. As of November 29 Freeway Ricky Ross and his legal team has been concentrating on clearing up the error of miscarrying justice. Many fans and viewers are under the impression that Freeway Ricky Ross, has lost the case of trademarking his name.
To set the record straight and clear the air Freeway Ricky Ross will hold a live Ustream broadcast from his social networking website http://www.freewayenterprise.com and will take live calls or questions from only personnel that are currently members of his website. This broadcasting will take place 2 December Thursday at 6pm Pacific time.
During this live broadcast he will discuss more details regarding to why the first dismissal took place and why the Judge only talked about his former pass on being a drug trafficker as if he didn’t have a life before his conviction.This certainly not the case, as The Real Ricky Ross will let you know.
Donnell Ross, better known as “Freeway” Ricky Ross, is one of those rare figures whose experience as a drug trafficker has lead him to a life of rebuilding the community in which he once helped destroy. Now, with a passion for helping the youth, Ross has been given a second chance to uplift his community by giving back through mentoring and sharing his story. He plans to inspire many of today’s youths to achieve their greatest successes without following in his footsteps.
To the contrary many fans believe, the rapper William Roberts is aimed at destroying the new life that ” The Real Rick Ross” is trying to re-build through rapping and promoting his past. While The Real Rick Ross was incarcerated he reached out the rapper William Roberts as a symbolism of love in an effort to maybe show some love even after stealing the his name, persona and former lifestyle. Real Rick Ross stated to William Roberts ” you are a talented artist that makes marketable music why not use your own name” As The R To the present date he has yet to even show some type of gratitude to the man that he considers himself to be.
We have come to know this as “SWAG-JACKIN'” , at least that is what is it coined in the hip-hop community. To set the record straight ” The Real Ricky Ross” is not looking for free-bees or a hand out. Everything that he gets, he rightfully earns- legally.
Here is what the Judge did not hear:
A lot of the projects that Rick is focusing on is charity work ,but he believes the rewards of success are far greater than any monetary value he could ever receive. He has successfully started Freeway Enterprises, which has several different entities including a record label. The Real Rick Ross understands that the hip hop community has a strong voice, and he is making major strides in his area. However, to everyone’s dismay, there has been no acknowledgment or offer to help developed artist by the rapper; William Roberts who stated out of his own mouth that he would be there to help The Real Rick in any way that he could.
The rapper William Roberts only only raps about his perception of what a drug dealer is. He glorifies a past that the Real Rick Ross is trying to steer away from.This praising of the Real Rick Ross past is tainting the positive movement he is now empowering.
It is clear that the rapper William Roberts is only concerned about Rick’s past crime life, not the bright future that lies ahead. I guess that he feels only violence and crime sells records. The Real Rick Ross begs to differ. Many fans wants answers why haven’t the rapper not reached out and donated a small monetary amount of time and money to any of the local Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, HIP -HOP Detox, or the Nation of Islam where Rick dedicates his time to?
If this is a showmanship of gratitude, I would hate to see an act of ungratefulness. The rapper William Roberts better get his stamina together, because The Real Rick Ross and his legal team are not giving up without a fight. If the rapper William Roberts has done his homework, he is sure to find that The Real Ricky Ross is a true BOSS and definitely is not one to quit in a battle. His fans are firm believers that The REAL RICKY ROSS has five stones left to throw, Stay tuned in for the latest and check out his social network http://www.freewayenterprise.com and http://www.freewayrick.com.
