Nick Cannon is going to portray Rick ‘Freeway’ Ross in an upcoming movie and while many are scratching their heads over the choice, there is one person that certainly is not.
Rick Ross himself.
The two even have a history together, appearing in a video announcing the role recently. Rick Ross has this to say about the choice of Cannon to portray him:
“I’ve been wanting him to play my role since ’96,” the former drug kingpin said of Cannon in the video.
On the other news front, Rick Ross is suing Rick Ross the rapper for basically using his name and persona for his own hip-hop benefit. That case is still in court, so let’s see what the judge decides.
