The M-I-A

When Ross took on rap, he named himself after the infamous L.A. drug trafficker "Freeway" Ricky Ross, who later sued him unsuccessfully for copyright infringement. The Bawse was originally signed to legendary Houston label Suave House, but his career didn't take off until he inked with Miami powerhouse Slip-N-Slide, also home to Trick Daddy and Trina.
