May 2009


Freeway Ricky is a big name in the drug world. The dude is straight gangsta. He's been profiled on BET's American Gangster series, was the subject of numerous street DVD's and has appeared in several magazines. The dude is a bonifide ghetto superstar. Ready to hit the streets and get into the entertainment world, Freeway Ricky is also trying his hand at the book game. Dope game, been there. Street legend, done that. Prison celebrity, check. Urban lit author, add that to the list. Freeway Ricky?s resume is on blast. The dude is multitasking and he's becoming a multimedia icon. Check out his new novel Black Scarface that he co-wrote with acclaimed author and Philly rapper Jimmy Da Saint. Also check out Freeway Ricky's social networking website, Freewayenterprise.com. This is the real Freeway Ricky Ross, not the fake officer Ricky, the studio gangsta. We're talking about the street legend and certified LA gangsta. Straight out of federal prison, here's the exclusive:

How did Black Scarface come about?
Jimmy had just got out of the hole, had a note from a guy that owed me some money. Jimmy is a very smart dude, who's always looking for angles, but at that time he wanted to help me. He asked me why didn't I have a novel out. I told him I really wasn't interested in doing novels. He had like 30 written, so he offered me one. I told him that I just didn't want to put my name on anything and that's when he came up with the idea of us writing together.

How instrumental were you in the writing and publishing of it?
I help create scenes. The story is based on both of our lives and things that we've experienced and seen in our lives. We'll be publishing it through Jim's company but I'll be there right with him every step of the way.

What's it about?
It's about a mother's love for her son, who's determined to see him be successful. And a young man that refuses to loose.

Can we say it's the Rick Ross story fictionalized? Why?
No, I won't say that it's the Rick Ross story fictionalized, Even though it does relate. Jim and I fought on a lot of issues. Even though he's my man we clashed on a lot of issues. And since there is no question that Jim is a better writer than I. I used to let him win.

What other plans do you have as an author?

At the present time I'm finishing up my autobiography. Jimmy is also helping me with that. Along with Kwame the author of Dutch. Monique Hall and Barbara the editor of Dutch 1, 2 and 3. I put together what I feel is a dream team. I plan on taking readers through a step by step journey of how a tennis player who was anti-drug one day became a drug dealer the next.

What else is going on?
I have a deal set up where I can do mutliple movies as well as starting my record label, video games and books. My website www.freewayenterprise.com is starting to take on a life of it's own. We've already started filming a reality show. Man, it's off the charts. I feel like the luckiest man in the world.

Anything else?
Yeah, man, I just want to tell everybody out there what's up. All you have to do is put your mind to it and you can do it. It's wide open. Make sure yall check out the website. I'll be doing major moves off of it. So become a member of this new movement. Also check out Young Bucks new CD with Bigger Ranking. It's off the charts. Also I'm still looking for artists to kick the label off. So if there's anybody out there that wants to be down they can e-mail me at: freewayrickyross49@yahoo.com.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.SeoOptimizedRankings.com&quo t;>Seo Plugin</a>

Hey Mike.. So, this isn't really about a gift I reeeivcd, but a gift for my brother that I actually witnessed him open.. This was about 7 years ago My middle brother had just opened his big gift and it was an authentic Team Canada hockey jersey.. he was stoked and so was my younger brother.. they were oohing and ahhing over, checking out all the details.. so then my youngest brother goes to open his gift it wasn't his big one, but still, he was pretty stoked, I think he rips back the paper and it's a juggling set with a how-to book hahahahah!! The look on his face just fell to the floor He had reeeivcd his big gift earlier in the fall (new camping and outdoor gear and he needed for his high school back packing trip).. I think he was expecting a little but more to his taste for his smaller gift than a juggling set anyway, he didn't really want to say anything to my mom, but then my other brother broke the ice by teasing my mom about getting juggling balls for his gift.. we were all dying laughing by the end of the night.. when my brothers get going they're kind of a 2-man comedy show.. Anyway, my mom still gets razzed about that gift to this day.. She took it all in good stride and shakes her head, wondering why she ever got my totally uncoordinated brother a juggling set..

@ Thug Life/Killer Mike: its clear you came here to hate. What have you written? What books do you have published? Who has signed you? Who are you? Real people states their name and stand behind what they say. You are a fool and a fu*king true life hating azz faggot! You're just mad because your a self-published bum that couldn't move a book pass your door step and probably couldn't write your name on a napkin!
