According to TMZ Freeway Rick Ross(the drug dealer) had filed suit against the rapper, claiming ownership of the name. The rapper Rick Ross claims that he wasn’t inspired to use the name because of the drug dealer. That is the only subject that Rick Ross ever raps about selling drugs, despite concrete evidence that he was once a correctional officer.

I absolutely think that Rick Ross (the rapper) stole the drug dealer’s Rick Ross’s life. Unfortunately when you claim to fame is being a drug dealer no court is really trying to hear what you have to say. I’m pretty sure that Rick Ross (the rapper) had more money to afford better lawyers than Rick Ross (the drug dealer). The judge ruled he had no basis for a lawsuit and threw the case out.
