#6. The Real Rick Ross

Unforgivable offense: The real “Freeway” Rick Ross was a legendary Los Angeles drug kingpin in the early 1980s. Convicted to a life term in 1996, he was released on good behavior in 2009 and soon threatened to sue Rozay for unauthorized use of his name. Even though the case was thrown out, Rick Ross's very existence serves as a constant reminder that Rozay's escapist fantasies are just that.

His punishment: Time served. Watching a former C.O. become a millionaire using your name is probably high on the list of an inmate's worst nightmares.

Complex says: Real street cred has real costs.
