One of the most famous rappers of all time, Eminem, when asked for a piece of advice for kids, said: “Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness. It Buys Crazy-Ass Happiness!”
And, at the end of the day, everything we do, we do for money, don’t we? That is what you will see in Rick Ross’ house: The perfect use of money (according to him).
But before that, let’s take a look at who Rick Ross is, or better, how he became so rich that Rick Ross’ house made it to the international news.
Who Is Rick Ross:
Rick Ross is a freakin’ millionaire rapper who hails from Clarksdale, Mississippi, USA. He is 46 years old.
He was born on the 28th of January 1976. He didn’t always know what he could do when given the mic on a stage until 2006.
Yes! 2006 was when his debut solo album, “Port Of Miami,” was released. He released two songs on that album.
One was “Hustlin’,” and the other was “Push It.” If you’ve been listening to Rick Ross for a long time, you must’ve listened to “Hustlin’.”
That is how he got his initial fame, and even after sixteen years, in May 2022, the song gives the same vibes it gave the first time.
Rick Ross has seen many ups & downs since he has risen to fame. And, when I say ups & downs, I mean the legal and illegal ones.
He has been to court for several charges, including assault, possession, kidnapping, and some others.
Some of those were dropped, and some did not. This is why he had to go to jail and serve some time there.
But, as we all know, he overcame all of that, eventually. But what made Rick Ross so rich? What are his business ventures?
Have you heard of the famous fast-food chain Wingstop? Some of you might’ve been to it, right? In March 2020, Wingstop had more than 1,400 restaurant locations worldwide, and Rick’s the owner of some of them.
This adds a considerable amount to his net worth every year. Besides Wingstop, he is a successful rapper, songwriter, and record executive.
He has worked with seven music labels during his career, who offered him a hefty amount with the contract because of his fame.
An example of that is Def Jam Recordings approached Rick Ross with a multi-million dollar contract, to which Rick said yes.
Rick Ross’ net worth is around 45 million dollars as of May 2022.
Rick Ross’ House: What You Need To Know?
Money is an interesting topic to talk about, isn’t it? I mean, millions of people worldwide don’t have food to eat even once a day.
And the top 1% have so much money that they can buy a million-dollar mansion just to drive by it. Yes! Just to drive by.
Rick Ross’ House cost around 5.8+ million$ (approx. six million$) in 2014 when he bought it. Today, it is estimated to cost around ten million$.
Actually, Rick Ross’ House is among a lot of real estates owned by the Mississippi-born rapper. In simpler words, he has a knack for real estate.
Before buying the Georgia mansion, he owned another mansion in Florida, he calls the U.S. state his home.
Even after selling the Florida mansion, he still spends a lot of his time there. The famous professional boxer Evander Holyfield previously owned Rick Ross’ current residence.
For some reason, he sold it to the bank for around 7.5 million$. The bank put it up for auction for around 8.1 million$, and the starting bid was 2.5 million$.
It is believed that Evander spent around 20 million$ to build and maintain the mansion. The annual expense of the house at the time was more than one million$ (all expenses included).
Earlier, I talked about the drive-by thing. Rick Ross’ house was indeed a drive-by location for him at first, and he paid around one million dollars for it.
Rick says that he learned a lot about real estate from his mom (who was a middle-class nurse). Though she was an employee, she didn’t have an employee mindset.
With the little money she had, she always invested it in real estate, where property values were comparatively lower.
Rick Ross used to ask her to invest in the stock market to make big money instantly rather than waiting years in real estate.
His mom used to say that the stock market isn’t her cup of tea, and she knows more about properties and real estate than she does about stocks.
The rapper says her mom believed that you must be able to touch what you choose to buy and own.
Rick’s career skyrocketed with the release of his album, “Port of Miami” in 2006, and he came to Georgia in 2008.
I think Mr. Ross always had his eyes set on this Georgia mansion. When he came to Georgia, he purchased property just a few streets from the house.
During an interview, he said he used to walk by the mansion every day, looking at the grass, lawn, garden, everything, and one day, he saw the “for sale” sign. He turned back and, as we all know, bought it.
He also has properties in Florida, and, as mentioned earlier, he owns many Wingstop restaurant locations in the USA.
Specifications of Rick Ross’ House:
Rick Ross’ house is located in Fayetteville, Georgia; 30214 is a 235-acre real estate that costs around ten million$ as of May 2022.
Inside it, there is a 55,000 sq ft mansion which has twelve bedrooms, 20+ bathrooms, indoor cinema (Movie Theater).
Moreover, Rick Ross’ mansion features a basketball field and basketball court. In total, Rick Ross’ house has 109 rooms.
The room Rick uses is a marvel itself, as it has a marble floor, a lot of space, beautiful bathroom with a full-size bathtub in it.
In a YouTube video, Ross said it took him 2 to 3 days to walk through the mansion and completely absorb it.
This is what Rick Ross always wanted. He always loved big houses, where he could just roam around, drive by, sit back and relax.
Besides the rooms, he has a huge 350,000-gallon swimming pool as well, in which he says he hosts the largest pool parties in the USA.
Rick Ross’ house also has a huge car garage, and he owns more than 100 cars. Among all those cars, Rick’s favorite is a Rolls Royce with a roof filled with stars.
Also Rick Ross’ mansion has a big collection of Bentley, Mercedes Benz, Ferrari, 4×4 Ford, and many others. You name it; he got it.
This millionaire rapper has a vast collection of expensive sneakers. Rick Ross’ house’s pool is so big that many companies offered him “six figures” to train their horses in it.
And yes, before I forget, the house features a dining area that can accommodate upto a hundred people at one time.
Just for your knowledge, 235 acres equals more than 10 million sq ft and almost a square kilometer.
You can just imagine how huge this number is, and out of this ten million+ sq ft, only 55,000 sq ft consists of the mansion itself.
Now I know what you must be thinking now: How much does the maintenance of Rick Ross’ house cost?
This is the question every middle-class person worries the most about. So, to keep the ball rolling, Rick has to pay around 17,000$+ every month.
And the total expense of Rick Ross’ house is more than one million$. And, concluding the point with this fact: Rick’s house is the largest mansion in Georgia.
Just by talking about Rick Ross’ house, I felt great and, yes, overwhelmed. I mean, how can a house be so big that you can roam in it for two days and still be left with something new to discover.
