Publisher's Summary

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 in 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.

Life as a Drug Kingpin.

Where does Freeway Rick Ross rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a gripping story of how a young man became a drug kingpin. It gives details of his childhood, teenage and adult years. It is based on a true story. It is very exciting and well worth listening to.

What other book might you compare Freeway Rick Ross to and why?

This book is like a cross between the t.v. show, "Breaking Bad" and the book, "Bringing Down the House" by Ben Mezrich. It has the action of "Breaking Bad" and the suspense of normal guy who is a little out of his league like "Bringing Down the House."

What does Kevin Pierce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kevin Pierce gives a great performance. He is a good storyteller, and a book is always better if you can listen to it instead of reading it. Multi-tasking dude.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are many moving moments in this book. When Aunt Bobbi-Jo is being beaten, when Rick is told he cannot attend college, when Rick's chop shop case is thrown out of court, when Rick finds that his favorite teacher was a coke dealer.... I could go on and on. This is a well-written book with lots of memorable moments.

Any additional comments?

This is a very good story that I highly recommend. Obviously, this book contains adult situations, but is pretty clean in terms of language. I would not hesitate to let a teen listen to it. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Phenomenal book!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

While I enjoyed this book, the only thing I would have preferred was if it were an African American who read it, I only say this because it didn't sound as authentic coming from a Caucasian. The reader did a great job but that was my only complaint.

A fascinating listen, worth the investment.

I was introduced to Freeway Rick Ross via the Joe Rogan experience podcast.

Rick provides a fascinating insight into a world that most of us will never know.

This story of an illiterate young black man growing up in the tough ghettos of South Central LA, becoming Americas top Cocaine supplier and his eventual downfall makes for a great story.

His subsequent efforts for self education, his release from prison and successful post crime life and work to help the youths that are in the position he was before his life of crime are inspirational.

excellent read

The story of Freeway Rick Ross is very interesting and was surprising to learn the volume of business he done in his prime. Excellent narrator as well.
