Jump To Rick Ross' Stats
Rapper Rick Ross rose above the pack to carve out his own niche in the Hip Hop world and his estimated net worth of $15,866,000 certainly reflects that. He keeps it real with his in your face lyrics, but ‘rhyming’ is not his only game. Aiming at the title music mogul, Ross also produces and has his own record label Maybach Music Group.
Some of his music listened to loudly on smartphones, blasted on car stereos and in urban clubs everywhere are Deeper Than Rap and his latest released Teflon Don. Fans are now anxiously awaiting his next album “God Forgives, I Don’t, anticipated to do as well as his other successes.
His 2006 debut album Port of Miami, shot to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, going Gold and his second called Pushed, was used as soundtrack for the popular movie Scarface.
However, “The Teflon Don’ Rapper wasn’t always spinning life’s raw tales through Rap. Born William Leonard Roberts 11 in Mississippi on January 28, 1976, Ross moved to the Sunshine State of Florida as a child. He played football in his youth and had sufficient skills to snag a football scholarship to attend the prestigious Albany State College.
Ross mega millions is a long way from his former occupation: a Corrections Officer. Some might say that’s an odd transition, especially for someone whose image is hard-core street creds but think about it: dealing with crime to rhyming about hard times, one can see the connection. He must have endless material to choose from.
He has worked with some of the best in the industry. Big names like JayZ, Lil Wayne, Drake, Trick Daddy and Birdman to name a few. Ross added a coveted title to his creds when he was named The Hottest MC in the Game in 2012.
As many Rappers, Ross has the prerequisite ‘feud’ percolating with fellow bad boy 50 Cent and like many Rap battles, the origin of the ‘bad blood’ gets lost in the shuffle. Some critics say Ross exaggerates his net worth and life styles and is worth considerably less than he projects. Suffice it to say making a gazillion of dollars while claiming to be a hard thug from the hood will get you your required share of enemies but hey, in Rick Ross world, it is good for business.
