SORT BY Relevancy
"The Real Rick Ross" Dedicated. Focused. Determined….
Author: Freeway Rick Ross and Cathy Scott
Ricky Donnell Ross, better known as Freeway Rick Ross, is one of those rare figures whose experience as a drug kingpin has lead him to a life of rebuilding the community in which he once helped destroy. According to the Oakland Tribune” In the course of his rise, prosecutors estimate that Ross exported several tons of cocaine nationally, and made more than $600 million in the process.During the height of his drug dealing, Ross was said to have made 2-3 million dollars a week. In 1996, he was sentenced to life imprisonment after being convicted of trying to purchase more than 100 kilograms of cocaine from a federal agent. Ross became the subject of controversy later that year when a series of articles by journalist Gary Webb in the San Jose Mercury News brought to light a connection between one of Ross’s cocaine sources, Danilo Blandon, and the CIA as part of the Iran-Contra scandal. The decision in his case was brought to a federal court of appeals where his sentence was reduced to 20 years and then reduced further for being a model inmate and he was released in Sept 2009. Now, he has applied the passion that helped him build an empire to helping the youth, Ross has been given a second chance to uplift his community by giving back through mentoring and sharing his story. He plans to inspire many of today’s youths to achieve their greatest successes without following in his footsteps.The legacy he wants to leave behind is to be known as an inspirational mentor to people in need rather than the old “Freeway” Ricky Ross. He plans to make life better for people around him and to continue to love his family

The show is back and better than ever LIVE from the Green Bay Distillery. The boys open up the show with the exciting news that broke in the middle of the first Packers practice of the season. Jordy Nelson signed a contract extension that will keep him in Green Bay for at least the next five seasons. After that they discuss some somber news of the players that were placed on various injury lists and what they think that means going forward.
The show introduces a new segment called Ask FTB, where the guys take questions that were sent to them, and answer them based on what they have seen so far.
The guys go Behind the Bench this week with a live reaction to training camp moments based on what they saw and heard from the first day of practice, and preview the first padded practice of the season coming on Monday. All of this leads into some strong words from Ross for Ted Thompson's detractors in the show's signature segment You're Gonna Want to Cut That.
