Why Is Rick Ross Afraid To Ride In A Tesla?



Tesla vehicles may have revolutionized the automobile industry, but Rick Ross appears to have reservations about the technology they employ. The Port of Miami rapper explained his fear of riding in an electric vehicle in an Instagram story post on Tuesday.

“I won’t say I’ll never have a smart car, but I’ve never ridden in a Tesla,” the 46-year-old started, per XXL. “Never. Never in my life. I’ve never ridden in a Tesla and the reason being is because I’ve always had in the back of my mind, the government could tap into the brain of the car. ‘OK, where’s Rick? He’s over there. Nah, bring him in for questioning.’ [Makes car sounds with mouth]. N***a, like, where I’m going? It’s leaving WingStop. You pull up to the building and the agent walk out. ‘Hey, Rick.’”

The award-winning rapper then posed a question, “What you think it can’t?” He then added, “So if you get in that m****f***a, that m****f***a lock the door and take you where it wanna go. You think you finna smoke a blunt? That b***h will suck the air out that b***h.”

The rapper Diced Pineapples is no stranger to spreading conspiracy theories. He stated in October of last year that he was hesitant to drink almond milk because he didn’t know how it was made.

“I’m still not up on the almond milk,” he said during a discussion on GQ Hype Debate. “Rozay still frightened.”

“I just got up on 2% milk a couple years ago. Now y’all trying to conspiracy,” he added. But outside sharing conspiracy theories, the rapper is known for taking matters into his own hands when it comes to paying people to do things he can carry out on his own.

In a 2021 interview with Forbes, he revealed how he saves $1 million per year on maintenance for his 235-acre Georgia estate. The rapper, born William Leonard Roberts II, reportedly paid $5.8 million for the large Fayetteville property from retired legendary boxer Evander Holyfield in 2014. Aside from its massive compound, the mansion has over 100 rooms and a 350,000-gallon swimming pool.

After purchasing the property, the rapper claimed he was constantly reminded by residents of how much Holyfield spent a year cutting the grass. And, while Ross is known for rapping about spending money on expensive items and services, the rapper also claims to understand how to spend wisely.

“When I bought the Fayetteville estate, locals would see me walk out of a restaurant and scream, ‘You know Holyfield spent $1 million a year to cut the grass.’ So I decided that I was gonna cut my own grass. And that’s what I did,” the rapper said.

“I went down to John Deere and asked to see the biggest tractor, the most efficient tractor. I told them I had 200-plus acres that I wanted to keep cut, and they pointed out the right tractor. I bought it right then and there. I bought the extended attachment on the back that would cut even wider. Once I got it back home, I filled it up with gas. I may have sat in the same spot for two hours before I got everything working, but once I got it going, I didn’t stop. I cut grass for about five hours.”
