What is Rick Ross’ Net Worth?

Rick Ross has a net worth estimated at $150 million as of 2024. Before his big break, the rapper was engaged in various hustles, which earned him a decent sum. Meanwhile, the bulk of his net worth came from his music career as a rapper, songwriter, record executive, producer, entrepreneur, and CEO. Aside from his listed sources of income, the rapper also has other sources through which his net income accrues.

How Does Rick Ross Make His Money?

Rick Ross has streams of businesses through which his net worth accrues. Meanwhile, as a result of the illegal activities he promotes in his videos, many have questioned the real source of Rozay’s income, attributing it to illegal criminal activities. His moniker “Rick Ross” is in homage to Freeway Ricky Ross, an 80s infamous narcotics kingpin in L.A, California.

However, there’s no base fact to support this claim as the rapper has never been convicted of any felony charge. Here is a rundown of how the rapper built his net worth:

Music Career

Inspired by Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., Rick Ross, also known as Rozay, released his debut single, ‘Hustlin’, in 2006, which was certified gold, a great achievement for a new artist. This hit saw his album ‘Port of Miami’ get to number one on the Billboard 200. His instant success attracted numerous labels looking to sign future stars.

Ross signed to Russell Simmons Def Jam Records, which offered a highly publicized record deal. His subsequent three albums also peaked at the top spot on the charts. Rozay began by writing music that romanticized the money he got from drug dealing, a theme that still cuts across his music today.

His music can be streamed on the following platforms; Tidal, Deezer, SoundCloud, YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, and more. With the large number of followers that he has on these platforms and the method of payment, he must have cashed out a substantial amount so far.

In 2016, the business was the major contributor to the $10 million he earned. Rozay also benefits from lucrative deals with the likes of Luc Belaire Rose and mCog e-cigarettes.

Rick Ross’s net worth is sufficiently huge, so we expect him to live in a lavish home. The rapper once lived in a 4500-square-feet Florida home worth $1.2 million. The house offered him four bedrooms and five baths with a pool and jacuzzi.

But it seems the rapper needed more space, and a massive one at that. He recently bought a $5.8 million house that belonged to heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield. Just in case you are wondering how much space he has now or if he gets the value of his money, here’s what the house offers.

The house sits on 235 acres of land, and it contains 109 rooms, which include 12 bedrooms and 21 beautiful bathrooms. It also offers a bowling alley, a beautiful interior, awe-inspiring paintings, a 350,000-gallon outdoor pool, and a home theatre.

For $5.8 million, you bet it doesn’t end there; the house additionally offers a baseball field with proper lighting and scoreboard, a recording studio, a guest house, an indoor pool, a seven-stall barn, and a boxing gym.

The 54,000-square-feet home is said to be the biggest single-family house in the state of Georgia. Evander had to get rid of the house to save himself from some financial burden. He sold to a bank at a public auction as part of foreclosure for $7.5 million in 2012 before Rick Ross snapped it.

As you might expect, the house’s yearly maintenance cost is almost as big as the space it offers. The ex-owner, Evander, opened up in an interview that it took him $1 million every year to maintain the mansion.

As is typical of celebrities, especially rappers, Ross has been involved in a couple of publicized feuds, most notably with 50 Cent. It began in 2008 at the BET Awards, when 50 gave Ross a “look.” The feud has led the duo to release their tracks at each other. 50 went as far as releasing a YouTube cartoon series, ‘Officer Ricky’, and a sex tape of Lastonia Leviston, Ross’ baby mama. 50 Cent was ordered to pay her $5 million.
