7 Businesses Owned By American Rapper Rick Ross

Few people in hip-hop and business have managed to combine their artistry with business acumen like Rick Ross. Ross, born William Leonard Roberts II and famously known as ‘The Biggest Boss,’ exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit. His trajectory from dropping verses in “Hustlin'” to constructing a $150 million corporation demonstrates his versatility.

But how did he amass such wealth? Ross’ diverse portfolio includes businesses ranging from music labels to restaurants. He’s secured sponsorship partnerships with Reebok and Belaire Rose champagne, as well as alleviated hunger with his restaurant businesses. And his 109-room house in Fayetteville, Georgia, is the largest in the state. This architectural marvel, formerly owned by boxing legend Evander Holyfield, has also acted as a source of inspiration for poor students.

Ross’s expertise extends beyond traditional investments into the volatile worlds of bitcoin and NFTs. As if that weren’t enough, he also owns two New York Times best-selling books and a stunning collection of 120 cars.
