freeway rick ross vs. rick ross

Now that the real “Freeway” Rick Ross, is out of jail he’s ready to reclaim the rights to his name. The infamous L.A.-based drug trafficker is planning a lawsuit against Miami rapper Rick Ross (real name William L. Roberts II), for profiting off the unlawful use of his name, along with Def Jam, Universal, and others. XXLmag.com spoke to both Ross and his lawyers today (May 25) to find out more about their case.

Rumors hit the internet this morning, claiming that both parties are set to go to court this summer. Ross’ attorney clarified with XXL that a date hasn’t been scheduled yet because the suit hasn’t been formally filed. However, a cease and desist letter (a formality generally preceding lawsuits) on behalf of Ross has been sent to Def Jam and they’re currently waiting for a response, if any.
