Freeway Rick Ross Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018
Ricky Donnell Ross (created 3 May, 1960), also called Highway Rick Ross, is an American writer and convicted drug trafficker best known for the substance empire he presided over in La, California, in the early to mid 1980s.
Ross attended high school at Susan Miller Dorsey High School in La. He played for the tennis team but was not able to get a college scholarship because he was illiterate. Ross has said that when he first saw crack cocaine as a teen in 1979, he failed to instantly consider it was a substance since it seemed different from several other substances he’d seen. The nickname Highway came from Ross’ possessing properties along the Los Angeles Harbor Freeway and residing alongside the 110. In accordance with an October 2013 Esquire magazine article, “Between 1982 and 1989, national prosecutors estimated, Ross purchased and resold several metric tons of cocaine. In 1980 dollars, his gross gains were said to take excess of $900 million — using a gain of almost $300 million. Converted about to present day dollars: 2.5 billion gross, and $850 million in gain, respectively.” Throughout the peak of his drug dealing, Ross was said to get sold “$3 million in one day.” After that year, some posts by journalist Gary Webb in the San Jose Mercury News revealed a link between one of Ross’s cocaine sources, Danilo Blandn, as well as the CIA within the Iran-Contra scandal. He was released from detention on September 29, 2009.
