Freeway: 'Snowfall' is a Fairy Tale, I Met w/ John Singleton & He Didn't Include Me (Part 11)
Part 10:
Part 1:
In this clip, Freeway Ricky talked about the hit television series Snowfall that is eerily similar to his story. Freeway Rick said that he doesn't support the show because he's not "into fairy tales." He spoke about being called to be a consultant on the show but declined due to his exclusion from the show's creation.

    Has it occurred to anybody that Snowfall is a story about a smart kid from a bad neighborhood. Replace cocaine with another drug and Freeway wouldnt be mentioned.

    This is sad because the truth of his movie may not even hit the screen. Look what happened to John Singleton after putting out snowfall he's no longer here. The government is fucked up but we all in some way lived that shit too. Especially growing up in Cali we saw that shit first hand.My dad is Cuban and my mom is black in Cali we grew up around the Mexicans,Cubans, Samoan, Filipinos etc. Family members pimps and hustlers brothers and cousins are originator, uncle's Grandpa's all them was involved in that shit and very aware.Hustler's everywhere smokers everybody knew what time it was. The government didn't fool nobody then and they damn sure ain't fooling nobody today. I guess that's what they mean by the game is to be sold not told. all the more reason why we got to be up on it Mothers/Farthers wake up out the slumber.Remove the bells from over your eyes and take the plugs out of your ears otherwise your kids will be left to be devoured say don't give a fuck about us grown folks know more. It's all about the kids the future and now you see the 90s kids half as got it together and they got half-ass hope. But are 2000 babies they don't even know what's coming and that's where we have to pay attention step up pray over and lead them in the right direction. Who are you, what are you here for and where are you going are you fulfilling your purpose. Things that make you say him😏 May the blessings of YAH be with each and every one. Near and far, young and old.✨👑🖤💯💔🙏😘🙋

    Snowfall is one of the best shows out but with Rick’s involvement we definitely would have gotten a more accurate look into LA during that era. Rick would better represent the street element but something tells me him & John Singleton (RIP) just didn’t work well together

    Rick keeps making the mistake of representing himself. All those "PRE" meetings he has, selling books, showing manuscripts, sharing "ideas" etc.. should be done by his hungry half lion, half shark, half wild hairy hyena with rabies New York Jewish lawyer who loves putting in work. If he had one, he'd have ALL HIS MONEY and there would be no more "coincidences" and just lots of checks being cut in his name!

    This why people should never show their work these corrupted grimy ass so-called black directors they grimy as f*** get your work legalize in your name so no one can steal it and you can sue.

    The reason why they couldn't work together is freeway would want his vision while John has his own. Its freeways story but John is telling it. Its like telling a dj what to play.

    The Late Great John Singleton told me himself that Franklin isn't Rick Ross. He's an Hybrid of Him, Waterhead Bo, and Rick Ross. So yes it's a fictional story of a true era. Freeway Rick acts as if he was the only person the CIA used. There were 10's and 20's of other crack dealers in Los Angeles alone that the CIA were giving crack to in order to fund that war on contra. Freeway Rick gets on my nerves.. at the end of the day bro you got yourself in some bullshit and helped hurt a lot of black families at the end of the day fuck you

    They forgot Rick Ross not the first rapper who took his name and claim to fame atleast Freeway from philly never act like he was a kingpin. Besides everybody knew Franklin is Rick Ross in so many other words.

    Freeway my dude

  • LilRayBans

    He’s just mad lol. He’s old and washed up.

    • ElectrikArguement

      Of course he's old now. All this happened over 35yrs ago, lol. Not about being washed up, but yes he's he's pissed cause John took his personal story & idea, changed the names and ran with it. You would be pissed too.


    Majority of hip-hop fucks wit law enforcement n sum shape of form, thats all police shit. Da game, Snoop Jay z, Nipsey, etc. Da list goes on and on, noone just wants to see shit or does recognize shit for what it is due to da lime light. Everyone wanna go viral and wit dat comes a price. All fall short....


    Freeway most likely told himself, he barely got no jail time for all he did. U ain't gotta b on paperwork to snitch, I'm sure he gave enough knowledge bout da game to da feds n form of Intel that got him out of prison. To believe he got out without telling is pure stupidity. Da only niggas who didn't tell was meech and Southwest T.

    • Jerry Solomon Jr
      Jerry Solomon Jr

      Freeway got out because the prosecutors used the 3 strikes law he had 2 strikes but the DA built the case as if it were 3 strikes and he used that to reduce his sentence on appeal

    • MLB DOLO
      MLB DOLO

      If u just listen to all his interviews he give da whole run down, that's tellin and anyone who fucks with Vlad is a cop.vlad says himself he would tell and interviews law inforcement, if u fuck wit cops or any law enforcement ur n da same boat. U are who u hang wit, everyone who sits on his couch for a interview would tell or has told.

    Ricky 'Rozay' and FX / Dave Andron / Singleton owe this man some respect and ma$$ive checks. Snowfall is masterpiece series and should have had the original "Freeway" Rick Ross involved directly.
