Dj Khasper Bhinks goes 1 on 1 with the real "Freeway Ricky Ross" in a stripped down, no holds barred Live interview V.I.P!
Please join me on “The Dedan Tolbert Show” Monday April 12th as I interview former drug kingpin, “Freeway” Ricky Ross.
“Freeway” Ricky Ross, the drug king pin who was at the center of a CIA cocaine-dealing scandal, oversaw a Los Angeles based multi-state drug operation in the early 1980’s, which earned upwards of $2 million dollars per day at its height.
In 1996, he was sentenced to life in prison, after he attempted to purchase over 100 kilos of cocaine from an undercover federal agent.
Ross’ sentence was later reduced through appeals and after a series of explosive articles by the late Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Gary Webb.
Webb wrote a series titled “Dark Alliance” for the San Jose Mercury News, which exposed the C.I.A.’s role in importing cocaine into black communities to fund Sandinistas in El Salvador, as part of the Iran-Contra scandal.
Ross is currently working on a book and film and is seeking deals for both projects.
Ross will officially enter the music business, via a new record label with industry veteran Wendy Day.
In addition to those projects, Ross is filming a reality show that will track his release from his prison in Texarkana, Texas to a halfway house in California.
Along the way, Ross will talk with incarcerated youth in detention centers.
Ross’ colorful, yet tragic life has been the subject of numerous rappers’ rhymes throughout the years, from Brooklyn rapper Mos Def, to Los Angeles rapper The Game.

Rick “Slick Rick” Walters was born in London in 1965 and moved with his family to the Bronx in 1975.
Charlie Rock of HARLEM WORLD CREW was very instrumental in bringing “Ricky D” AKA “Slick Rick” and together when he was request by Doug to introduce him to Rick after he has seen him win a number of local MC battle contest. It was at a MC Contest at the 369 Armory on 142nd street in Harlem, given by promotion partners Ray chandler & Charlie Rock, The Rick & Doug were formally introduced by Rock.
As a 19-year-old in the summer of 1985 he scored his first big hits, “La Di Da Di” and “The Show.”
Three years later Def Jam Recordings released Rick’s first full-length album, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick”. Hailed as a showcase for Rick’s extraordinary writing and rapping skills, it quickly achieved “platinum” status for sales in excess of one million copies and has since established itself as a rap classic.
At the height of his fame in July of 1990, Rick shot and wounded two people in an ill-advised attempt to protect himself against a violent predator. Convicted of attempted murder in the second degree, he began serving his sentence of three-to-ten years in 1991. While he was in jail, he released “The Ruler’s Back” (1991) and “Behind Bars” (1994).
After his release in 1999 he released “The Art of Storytelling.”
