Freeway Rick Ross is looking to have the story of his life told on film and he’s recruited Nick Cannon to portray him. It’s not clear if the potential film has any additional backers at this point but the former drug kingpin is convinced he can vend his story.
According to Ross, he and Cannon have a long history and he’s been trying to secure the rapper for some time. “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? We family now, we are going to get this thing right. However long it takes, his story has got to be told,” said Ross.
Cannon is apparently just as eager as Ross and explained that the partnership was “history in the making.”
