"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

This is an exciting week in Louisville, when two very different events arrive in the city that have a lot to offer.
One is a huge one, FandomFest, where thousands and thousands will flock to the Kentucky International Convention Center downtown to see all kinds of tv and movie celebrities, a film festival, all kinds of cosplay, and there's even a book-themed track of panels, directed by a co-host of the Star Chamber Show, Stephen Zimmer!
The other event rolling into the 'Ville this weekend is the 3rd Annual Business of Writing International Summit, which offers a more intimant, workshop-driven atmosphere for authors interested in the business side of the writing world.
This week's show will feature a couple of the founders of these events, live! We will be speaking with author/consultant Peggy DeKay at the beginning of the show about the Business of Writing International Summit. Then, the maverick himself, Ken Daniels of FandomFest will be calling in live to talk about all the fun happening downtown.
We at the Star Chamber Show love to support events both larger and smaller scale, and this show will celebrate an example of each, with both taking place this weekend in Louisville, Kentucky!
Be sure to tune in at 9pm EST on Wednesday to get the full scoop on an exciting weekend just ahead!
