About Freeway Rick Ross
Freeway Rick Ross is the popular name of an American convicted drug trafficker who has an estimated net worth of $1 million. Born Ricky Donnell Ross on January 26, 1960 in Troup, Texas, he is best known for the “drug empire” that he ran in the early 1980’s in Los Angeles. His nickname was earned because of his drug empire that included several properties in the Los Angeles area Harbour Freeway as well as the freeway near his childhood home.
Ross was introduced into the world of drug trafficking by his college friend Frasier Brown. Subsequently, he began to sell cheap Nicaraguan cocaine on the streets that he bought directly from Oscar Danilo Blandon and Norwin Meneses Cantasrero. His merchandise was sold for US$10,000 for less than a kilo. One of his main distributors was his childhood friend Billy Moulton. Aside from cocaine, he also sold surveillance equipment including mini-cameras and recording equipment. Freeway Rick Ross has several other employees who helped him distribute his drugs in the US locations such as St. Louis, New Orleans. Texas, Kansas City, Oklahoma, Indiana, Cincinnati, North Carolina, South Carolina, Baltimore, Cleveland and Seattle. He claims that most of his sales came from the state of Ohio. During the peak of his drug trafficking, he could earn up to $3 million in just a day and his highest net worth was over $600 million. Ross has sued rapper Rick Ross for using his name on June 18, 2010 and was looking for $10 million in compensation in the lawsuit. He was charged with the conspiracy of illegally trafficking cocaine (100g) with a life sentence. It was then commuted to 30 years by a U.S. Federal Court of Appeals. In 1996, he was incarcerated and was later released in 2009.
