Publisher's Summary

Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography is an intimate look at the day-to-day dealings of a drug kingpin in the heart of the ghetto. It's also the story of a boy born in poverty in Texas who grew up in a single-parent household in the heart of South Central, who was pushed through the school system each year and came out illiterate. His options were few, and he turned to drug dealing. This untold autobiography is not only personal, but also historical in its implications. Rick Ross chronicles the times by highlighting the social climate that made crack cocaine so desirable, and he points out that at the time, the "cops in the area didn't know what crack was; they didn't associate the small white rocks they saw on homies as illegal drugs". All Rick Ross knew was people wanted it.

A fascinating listen, worth the investment.

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.
