Nick Cannon is making a comeback to the big screen (or the tv screen) in the upcoming biopic about the life of drug lord Ricky Ross (not to be confused with the rapper Rick Ross). Ross has apparently been asking Cannon to portray him for years and now, it’s about to happen.
According to the former drug kingpin, Cannon has signed on to portray him in an upcoming biopic. “It’s time to tell the Story of C*caine, Contras and America. This is the story of the real Scarface!” Freeway posted on his Facebook page.
“I’ve been wanting him to play my role since ’96. We got hooked up, I met him I love his personality, know what I’m saying?” said Freeway in a YouTube clip. “We family now, we are going to get this thing right. However long it takes, his story has got to be told,” Cannon added.
Rick Ross the rapper, real name William Roberts, has been publicly condemned by Freeway Rick despite losing a court case that allowed the Maybach Music Group CEO to keep the stage name.
Last year, Freeway Ricky Ross was ordered to pay $500,000 of Rozay’s legal fees. The minor setback didn’t stop him from pursuing his case, stating shortly after that he intended on deposing Lyor Cohen, Todd Moskowitz and Sean “Diddy” Combs.
