WATCH: The Real Rick Ross ‘Freeway Ricky’ Says The Drug Game Funded Hip Hop   

‘Freeway Rick’ Ross was not only one the most powerful drug kingpins of all time, especially in the 80’s, but like most drug dealers with tons of money, he also had his hands in other side hustles such as the music business.

Check out this interview with Vlad Tv where “Uncle Ricky” talks about almost owning part of Death Row Records & financing soul singer Anita Baker’s first album.

Who knew Anita Baker had trap king dealings?

According to Freeway, the dope game basically funded the music business, especially back in the 80s and 90s where black artists couldn’t even think about getting loans and advances to produce their music projects. This seems to still ring mostly true today. Aren’t most these rap artists drug dealers nowadays? –or at least they claim to be.

Word to the REAL Rick Ross.
