BlazinRy Radio host Ryan Holmes welcomes the quintessential American Gangster, former drug kingpin Freeway Ricky Ross. Freeway Rick has been the subject of such recent films as Kill the Messenger and Freeway: A Crack in the System, as well as an upcoming Nick Cassavettes-directed biopic starring Nick Cannon as the drug lord. Enjoy this encore episode as Freeway Rick tells Ryan in a brutally honest interview the reason he put himself at the center of America's crack cocaine epidemic, the first moment he experienced regret over his involvement in the deterioration of inner-city communities across the country, his (unbeknownst-to-him) involvement in the Iran-Contra Affair during the Reagan Administration, and exactly why he thinks Gary Webb, the journalist who exposed the CIA, is dead today. Ultimately, Ross' story is one of selfish actions with dire consequences, an alternate pursuit of the American Dream, envy, incarceration, corruption, forgiveness, and redemption. Take a listen to this podcast. It's a journey you'll never forget.

in Indie Music
Calvin Ross began making music when he was 17, right after moving back home to Tennessee from a 6 year stay in Detroit.
After winning a showcase at P. Diddy’s studio, Daddy’s House, Calvin Ross got to meet with an A&R for Def Jam Recordings where he was further reassured of his talents. After this meeting, he started to pursue his music career more seriously and has since soared to new heights.
Today, Calvin Ross mainly creates Urban R&B, taking inspiration from artists like Michael Jackson, Usher, Ginuwine, Avant, R. Kelly and Prince.
“The feeling I get when someone genuinely tells me they like my music is the best feeling in the world,” Ross said. “I let the instrumentals talk to me and tell me what to say.”
Growing up in an area of Tennessee where crime and violence is the norm, Calvin Ross has a colorful story to tell–one that continues to make his music stand out from the rest.
So far, he has opened for Avant and Urban Mystic, and he continues to chase his dreams of having his music reach No. 1 on Billboard.
