Drug kingpin Rick Ross is letting the rapper Rick Ross knows who's boss.
Despite getting his 2010 lawsuit against rapper Rick Ross thrown out, a California judge has decided that the Real Rick Ross' claims of Ricky Rozay unlawfully profiting from his name and reputation is a valid suit.
The former drug kingpin was originally given a life sentence in 1996 for drug trafficking, but the sentence was subsequently reduced to 20 years after a federal appeal.
Now, the real Rick Ross has turned his life around as a community advocate and is seeking $10 million for rapper Rick Ross' use of his name.
In an exclusive interview with The BoomBox, the real Rick Ross revealed:
What's the news with the trial?
We've been doing depositions everyday for the last month, just about. I heard some really interesting testimony, probably the most interesting was the rapper, he showed me how big a clown he is. I had a little respect for him, but after I saw his deposition, I have zero respect for him now. I think he's a complete idiot. It's a disgrace for me to have someone like this with my name. He doesn't know what the name stands for, or how I got my name. He thinks that this name belongs to some big mafia guy who don't care about nothing but himself and really, he's just a pig.
Does it surprise you that so many rappers still associate with him?
Well, most of them are just like he is. That's why they can go and cut up a $400,000 car and we got kids in the streets that's hungry. I couldn't live like that. I sold drugs because I thought that was my only option. I know what it's like not to have food in the refrigerator. These guys come from good backgrounds, they're lying that they were illiterate. You can go check my school record, I was illiterate. I'm not bragging about that though, but that's what it really is. To have somebody who went to college and whose moms had a good job then turn around and claim poverty and illiteracy, it's totally ludicrous.
So what's next then, now that you have a trial date?
We're still going to be doing depositions for the next couple weeks. The judge ruled that she's going to make this a public trial. As soon as she makes the final ruling, I'll be releasing William Roberts' [aka Rick Ross] deposition publicly. I can't wait, so everyone can see what a clown he is. The way he clowned me. He shook all the white people's hand in the room and totally disrespected me in the room. When they get to see some of the things he says on camera ... I couldn't believe some of the things he said on camera. Let the world see it.
Besides suing rapper Rick Ross, the real Rick Ross is currently in talks with actor Jamie Foxx to produce a biopic about his life.
