The Rapper Rick Ross Is Getting Sued by the Drug Dealer Rick Ross

William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is being sued by "Freeway" Rick Ross, the L.A. drug dealer from whom he'd appropriated his name. Ross, who was released from prison in 2009, claims Roberts has profited off his name and reputation, and now he wants some money for it. You know, we're not usually ones to agree with infamous drug kingpins, but that actually sounds perfectly reasonable. [AllHipHop]
