From Inside The Flap
Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography is an intimate look at the day-to-day dealings of a drug kingpin in the heart of the ghetto. It’s also the story of a boy born in poverty Texas who grew up in a single-parent household in the heart of South Central, who was pushed through the school system each year and came out illiterate. His options were few, and he turned to drug dealing.
This Untold Autobiography is not only personal, but also historical in its implications. Rick Ross chronicles the times by highlighting the social climate that made crack cocaine so desirable, and he points out that at the time, the “cops in the area didn’t know what crack was; they didn’t associate the small white rocks they saw on homies as illegal drugs.” All Rick Ross knew was people wanted it.
A fascinating view of a non-suburban lifestyle. Well worth reading. Believable. Had I grown up like Rick Ross (as opposed to middle class plus), and had Rick Ross's talents, I might have done as he did. RicR2
This is a hard book to put down once you pick it up! Freeway Rick has a gift for telling a story, and it seems as if each page plants you in his domain and puts you in the car or room right next to him as he does his thing. JMichael
Not the most well-written book, but very fascinating. Rick has a real business mind. I'm glad he was able to get himself out of prison and tell his story to kids growing up in the same environment he did. Will have to pick up Gary Webbs book to understand the connection to the contras. Peter Nancarrow
