Ross has officially filed the suit in federal court in California to the tune of $10 million. He claims the Boss stole his name and identity and wants to stop the sale of his album. Along with Ross, the ex-con also names Jay-Z, Def Jam, Universal Music Group and Vivendi in the suit. Ricky reportedly asserts trademark and his rights of publicity in seeking an injunction that would prevent the rapper from using the “Rick Ross” name or releasing any albums using it. He also says that the U.S. Patent and Trademark officehas refused to let the rapper trademark the name.

“Just got update on lawsuit filed against me….injuction to stop release of my album has been denied!!aka tossed out!!”

Rapper RIck Ross reported on Friday via his Twitter account (@rickyrozay) that he would be releasing his upcoming album, Teflon Don, unhindered by “Freeway” Ricky Ross’ attempt to prevent it.

Teflon Don, the highly-anticipated fourth album from Ross, will feature production from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, The Inkredibles, No. ID and Kanye West, among others. The album will feature guests including Jadakiss, T.I., Tre Songz and Jay-Z.

    Thats crazy that this dude from Miami (Rick Ross) was indeed a cop at one point and the so called gangstaz of Miami accept him as they front man. Mannnnn, they all foul for letting that roll. This dude was a real like cop claiming to be a drug dealing. Ric Ross is the biggest fraud, pranksta, mark, busta on the hip hop roster. Miami as a whole must be snitches since they accepting this.

    The DEFINITION of “Studio Gangster”, this clown-blank, fat slob, former Corrections Officer & wannabe cop, is also the very DEFINITION of “Hater”; he saw ( through his job as a C.O.), all the real life gangstas making more $ than he could ever dream of. So he stole the moniker of one of the realest to ever do it & made up a laughable backstory for his thugged out, hustling alter ego. Straight fraud. The REAL Ricky “Freeway” Ross, made more money ($600mil- $1 bil) risking his neck everyday, than his imposter can ever dream to, even after leaving behind his day job as an Uncle Tom locking up his own people under orders from his white overseer bosses for committing the very crimes he would later falsely claim as his own. One love to the REAL Freeway Ricky Ross, a.k.a. The Johnny Appleseed of Crack
