In a recent interview on Full Send Podcast, award-winning rapper Rick Ross revealed he intends to climb Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. The 46-year-old said he wants to accomplish that feat in the next two years, Rap-Up reported.
“I actually gave myself a challenge… In 2024, I’ma hike to the top of Kilimanjaro,” he said. And though he admitted he hasn’t really looked into the expedition, he said he’s still determined to climb Africa’s highest peak.
“Of course not. I’m the boss, I don’t look at nothing,” he said when he was asked if he’s done any research. “I make my mind up, it’s not really that big.”
The Hustlin’ rapper said he’ll start mentally preparing for the climb next year. He also added that he’ll go through physical training to prepare for the climb.
Located in Northern Tanzania near the Tanzanian-Kenyan border, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, rising approximately 4,900 meters from its base and 5,895 meters above sea level. The mountain is part of the famous Kilimanjaro National Park and is a perfect destination for mountain bikers and hikers.
