Freeway Ricky Ross is the West Coast's pre-eminent street legend. From the dawn of the crack era he was the man to see in South Central, Los Angeles to buy multiple kilos of cocaine at our rate prices. From the ghettos of the City of Angels, his drug empire spread state to state, across the nation, due to his affiliation with the Crips and Bloods, who became roving drug dealers, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Freeway Rick is the man credited with supplying the cocaine that fuelled their surge and migration out of LA, enabling them to infect our country with crack, gangbanging and drive-by shooting. For this reason, Freeway Rick Ross is known as the Godfather of Crack and has been blamed by the U.S. government for the crack epidemic. This book is the most concise account of Freeway Rick's story to date. It also goes into how he won his appeal and gained his release from prison and his ongoing battle with the rapper Rick Ross over the use of his name.
