And despite his race and age, he sky rocked to street star status in the midst of some serious violence and death. As a teenager, White Boy Rick rubbed shoulders and stood tall with his contemporaries and survived the deadly gangland murders while others weren't so lucky. He was eventually set up and imprisoned under the Michigan's 650 Life Law, on of the only people ever to get a life sentence as a juvenile.
