Rick Ross claims to be a “frugal” spender, but he is making headlines for spending about $100 million in the past six months.
In promotion of his announced collaborative album with Meek Mill, “Too Good To Be True,” and a debut song, “Shaq & Kobe,” to kickstart the album to come, Rick Ross gave host Ebro Darden of Apple Music’s “Rap Life Radio” an inside description of his spending habits.
The Miami rapper who reportedly has a net worth of $45 million has characterized himself as frugal, but while sharing with Ebro about his need to spend on the necessities of his operations, Ross effortlessly disclosed his purported $100 million spree, Complex reported.
Ross’ Definition of Frugal
“I been cooking on the stove for a long time, and really I was getting money the whole time. I’m a real frugal n—a at some points, but when it’s time to make a power play, I will. I’ll spend $100 million. I spent that in the last, s–t, six months.”
As Finurah previously reported, in July, Ross became a property owner on Star Island, one of the most exclusive areas in Miami Beach, which he has proudly boasted about.
Reports show that Ross, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts II, has a contract to purchase a mansion for $37 million, but he insisted to Ebro that it was $35 million. In addition, the rapper bought a private jet for the same amount.
“I just bought a crib for [35 million], a jet for [35 million], the investments I’m over $100 million in the last six months, and we ain’t just talking about it. We really getting to it and spending it,” Ross said.
Over the years, Rick Ross and Meek Mill have been frequent collaborators on each other’s songs, such as “Believe It,” “So Sophisticated,” and “Ima Boss,” Fader reported. In 2021, Ross released his most recent solo album, “Richer Than I Ever Been,” while Meek Mill dropped his album “Expensive Pain.” In 2022, he released his mixtape “Flamerz 5.”
Ross currently owns around 30 Wingstop locations as a franchisee through his company, Boss Wings Enterprises LLC, which he co-owns with his mother, Tommie Roberts, and sister, Tawanda Roberts. He became a franchisee in 2013, and since has acquired multiple Wingstop locations. Ross’ love for the brand and its food has been evident throughout his career, as he frequently mentions Wingstop in his music.
