Freeway Rick Ross is giving Tory Lanez some hot tips on how to survive in prison … saying that having a bodyguard is critical while detailing one of Suge Knight‘s clever maneuvers.
We caught up with the former drug lord at LAX Friday and he didn’t pull any punches when it came to discussing Tory’s recent transfer from the local L.A. jail to a California state lockup. Tory is serving a 10-year sentence for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot.
Ross – who spent nearly 15 years in prison for his crimes — says he feels sorry that Tory is incarcerated in state prison with some really bad dudes, but he wishes him well.
He says Tory might run into some issues because he’s no longer with his usual clique; instead, he’s rubbing elbows with gang members.
Ross warned Tory about getting involved with any gang, explaining he would be forced to take care of the members by getting into potentially violent situations.
He says Tory’s successful background in music is going to be his “biggest detriment” because other inmates are going to hit him up for money all the time.
The ex-con turned book writer also advised Tory to pay $300 a month for an inmate bodyguard to shadow him at California Correctional Institution in Tehachapi.
Finally, Ross encouraged Tory to follow Suge’s lead and buy TVs for all of his fellow inmates to get into their good graces. As you know, Suge is serving a 28-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter.
