Rick Ross Net Worth: $35 million
American rapper, record producer and CEO of Maybach Music record label, Rick Ross has a net worth of $35 million.
Rick Ross, who briefly worked as a correctional officer in Florida before becoming successful in music had several cases, including his arrest for guns and drugs, while also facing different lawsuits from several other artiste in the music industry. Asides this, he also had highly public feuds with fellow rappers like 50 Cent. Ross who was determined to release several top-selling albums to make it to the top, released his very first album titled ‘Port of Miami’ in 2006 and has since released six more studio albums.
Rick Ross’ rival American rapper 50 Cent in February 2009 appeared on the Ed Lover morning show with a copy of Rick’s financial breakdown that was obtained during a child support case. The documents revealed that at the time Ross’ true financial status was far from the image he portrayed, while claiming to own three cars: A 2004 Maybach worth $55,000, a leased 2007 Cadillac Escalade worth $30,000 and a 2006 Infinity Q56 worth $30,000.
He further disclosed that he owned $45,000 worth of jewelry that meant all the Jewelry he wore in his videos and on TV were either fake or borrowed. While his monthly mortgage payments totaled $9,700 and he also claimed he actually spent $7000 every month more than he earned.
One thing we are certain of is that despite all the controversy surrounding the authenticity of Rick Ross’ persona or gangsta credentials, he will continue to smile all the way with the bank.
