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.

Rick Ross, a high-school dropout who was an All-City tennis star, is one of those rare figures whose experience as a drug kingpin led him to a life of rebuilding the community he once helped destroy. He teaches an economics class at a Watts high school and regularly speaks to teens across the nation about making better choices in life. His legacy is as an inspirational mentor to people in need rather than the former "Freeway" Ricky Ross as a player in the drug game. He is currently writing a second book, The Freeway Boys. He lives in Long Beach, California, with his wife and children. (Createspace)
