I was introduced to Freeway Rick Ross via the Joe Rogan experience podcast.
Rick provides a fascinating insight into a world that most of us will never know.
This story of an illiterate young black man growing up in the tough ghettos of South Central LA, becoming Americas top Cocaine supplier and his eventual downfall makes for a great story.
His subsequent efforts for self education, his release from prison and successful post crime life and work to help the youths that are in the position he was before his life of crime are inspirational.

Where does Freeway Rick Ross rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is a gripping story of how a young man became a drug kingpin. It gives details of his childhood, teenage and adult years. It is based on a true story. It is very exciting and well worth listening to.
What other book might you compare Freeway Rick Ross to and why?
This book is like a cross between the t.v. show, "Breaking Bad" and the book, "Bringing Down the House" by Ben Mezrich. It has the action of "Breaking Bad" and the suspense of normal guy who is a little out of his league like "Bringing Down the House."
What does Kevin Pierce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Kevin Pierce gives a great performance. He is a good storyteller, and a book is always better if you can listen to it instead of reading it. Multi-tasking dude.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There are many moving moments in this book. When Aunt Bobbi-Jo is being beaten, when Rick is told he cannot attend college, when Rick's chop shop case is thrown out of court, when Rick finds that his favorite teacher was a coke dealer.... I could go on and on. This is a well-written book with lots of memorable moments.
Any additional comments?
This is a very good story that I highly recommend. Obviously, this book contains adult situations, but is pretty clean in terms of language. I would not hesitate to let a teen listen to it. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

While I enjoyed this book, the only thing I would have preferred was if it were an African American who read it, I only say this because it didn't sound as authentic coming from a Caucasian. The reader did a great job but that was my only complaint.
