Rapper Rick Ross on real estate, hot wings, and the benefits of mowing your lawn

Published

on

Miami rapper Rick Ross knows a thing or two about music. In 2006, Ross’ “Port of Miami” debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 albums chart and made “Hustlin'” a breakout hit that had music lovers singing, “every day I’m hustling, hustling, hustling.”‘

Fifteen years after he first hit the charts, Ross stands atop a growing empire, a boss, a true entrepreneur with a vast reach and an unstoppable drive.

Friends call him “Rozay” (pronounced rosé). The name came to him when he was just a young dreamer, admiring VIPs and celebrities and their sparkling bottles while partying at Prince’s Glam Slam Club on Washington Avenue in Miami’s South Beach before Rick “The Boss” Ross could afford rosé champagne. 

Rick Ross Birthday Dinner And Party

The moniker has served him well. Forget wishing. Today, Ross is a certified VIP. He has released 10 studio albums and long been an ambassador for Luc Belaire’s signature rosé premium sparkling wines and champagnes. Some special edition bottles feature an image of his face. Ross has authored two books: “Hurricanes: A Memoir” in 2020 and “The Perfect Day to Boss Up: A Hustler’s Guide to Building Your Empire” (available Sept. 7). Oh, and he owns more than 25 Wingstop franchises. 

Born William Leonard Roberts II in Clarksdale, Miss., Ross, 45, grew up in Carol City, Florida, and says he learned much of his business acumen from his mother. 

“When I became a young millionaire for the first time, I went to my mother because she had always been a registered nurse and worked two and three jobs. She always bought real estate. She came from Clarksdale, where the real estate was a lot cheaper. She would just keep buying houses. And I would say, ‘Mom, what do you think about the stock market?’ And she would say, ‘Son, I don’t really rock with the stock market. I don’t know much about it, but I know about real estate . . . So when you buy something, make sure you can touch it.'”

Rick Ross 40th Birthday Celebration

Ross wasn’t thinking about upkeep. He admired the property. 

“I looked at every curve and every up and downhill on the lawn. I was looking at the geese as I rolled by. I did that for years until one day, I saw the red for-sale sign on the gate and made a U-turn,” Ross says. 

Real estate followers know what happened next. Ross bought the Fayetteville estate for $5.8 million in 2014. He’s since made some changes and purchased another 87 acres adjacent to the main estate in 2019 for $1 million. While the estate, which includes a 350,000-gallon pool and a dining room that seats 100, is home, Ross is not afraid to put the property to work. For example, the estate served as the Zamunda Palace in Eddie Murphy’s 2021 sequel, “Coming 2 America.” Ever the businessman, Ross says he secured more than $2.5 million to let producers use the estate as one of several locations (Tyler Perry Studios was another).
