The Real Rick Ross was supplied directly by the CIA. While this is common knowledge, ironically it is often ignored by people who do not want to admit our government intentionally causes harm to minority communities. (*update 9/11/22 – Many of our original videos included were pulled, so we are adding a few additional ones instead.)
*added 9/11/22 – Gary Webb (Don’t Kill the Messenger was based on his life), testifies about the CIA connections to the drug game. Black people have stated for years, they do not own the planes or boats that brought the drugs into the USA. These drugs were dropped off in black neighborhoods – and it’s all been proven.
Over 2 hours on this documentary on CIA Connections to the Drug Trade (*removed over a Music Copywrite strike)
For those with shorter attention spans, here is Gary Webb, talking for about 8 minutes. He described himself as an Investigative journalist. His report, Dark Alliance, got him into some deep trouble. Gary Webb died, in a motel room by suicide, according to the coroners report. Somehow, he managed to shoot himself in the head, twice. The ways that all of this has impacted black people in America is still felt, more than 40 years later. It’s very likely that all or most of these activities are also, still occurring. Nothing, is being done.
Recently the CIA and other ‘intelligence agencies’ are in the news again.
Meanwhile, the ‘fake’ Rick Ross recently bought a few more businesses in his home town. After creating massive success from a persona that he ripped from a real life drug dealer, should he do more for his community than buy businesses?
I’m not knocking him, or the original Freeway Rick.
Like many, Freeway Rick saw an opportunity to make some cash, in a society that has locked black people out. He would not have been able to do it, without the connections that he came across. While he is the most well known, there are plenty more who also fell victim to the same scheme. So many years later, so many lives have been lost in the process.
The struggle continues.
So many of the tales from the hood that we’ll hear in the hip hop world, are actually based on real life. The mainstream news isn’t covering it all, but a few talented individuals in each generation have continued to tell their stories. It’s a damn shame, that these stories and these struggles continue. Larger forces have always been at work, and their plans, have clearly panned out!
