Roberts became even better at it in High School. He was a football star for Carol City Senior High School. What he did on the field got him offers. One was the historical college Albany State University. He was on his way but was going into a direction. That direction wasn't leading to sports.

Suave Records

For short they called themselves the Triple C's. They were signed to Suave Records. By the late 90s, they were popular. He was a standout. His debut album was called the Teflon Don. The signs that he would be mainstream was evident. Like the streets were watching, so was another label. Suave records slowly became a glorious memory.

There are real estate giants everywhere. Ross will be just another. He had interest in investing in stocks. After some advice, he shifted. He invested in real estate. After his success as a mogul, he purchased the “The Promise Land.” His home is one of the biggest in the state. His home is popular already.

3. Humility

One of his mistakes was being too flashy. Ross spent 50,000 in a club one night. Soon after, he was shot in Ft.Lauderdale, Fl. Instead he moved softly, he spent over a grand on a car. He really partied like a rockstar. He shopped like one too. He went into a jewelry store and spent a lot of money. Now he's humble as a lamb. Nothing has changed much. He just got wiser with his spending habits. He shops at swap meets now. He still spends but it's for profit.

4. Problem Solving

When he was young, he always found a way to do things. The kid was a problem solver. As an adult, nothings changed. Presently, he has a lot of property. It is expensive to maintain the inside and outside. He has the money but learned from Evander Holyfield. Holy field was the previous owner. Ross went to buy him a tractor.

  • 5090 series Tractor ($66,599)
  • diesel engine
  • FT4 emissions
  • 90 engine horsepower.

Ross is wealthy, and he wants to stay that way. He cut expenses by doing himself a favor. That was by doing his landscaping. There is a 2% power bulge and a standard 12 F/12 R Power Reverser. He also cuts down his own trees.

5. Collecting

Ross spent a lot of money when he first came into wealth. That is common with most rappers that grew up the way he did. Ross matured and got wiser. He did not change much of what he was doing. Ross slowed his spending. Ross kept buying cars for his collection. Currently, he has over 100 cars. He displays his appreciation for a well-built car. He does so for motorcycles as well. He shows how much he loves them all. A true boss makes sure his collectibles reflect what they stand for.Rick Ross collects the cars and bikes for a reason. He says it helps him in the long run.

  • Powerhouse Motorcycle ($1,000,000)

Ross has a huge car collection. He has motor cycles as well. One of them, powerhouse, is custom-made. The bike has many speakers. It even has a digital display showing the music. He is not as flashy as he used to be.

6. Landscaping

Ross upgraded the interior. He has tinted windows and an AC. There is an extended attachment on the back. That cuts wider than most normal tractors that size. He has sharp blades on the tractor for lawn cutting. That assures that he does it right. He often states that he looks forward to doing it. With gas prices going up, saving is a must. The many trees in the state present a problem as well. There are too many, especially on his property. So, he went and purchased what he needed to remove them.

Ross did almost anything to save money. He added lumberjack skills to his skillset. A massive oak tree was on his property. He purchased the tool and chopped it down himself. In addition, he planted marble on his property. Numerous contractors praised him. They said that he did himself a favor by doing it. He earned the right to be called "the landscaping boss" for his actions. To him, it was a simple transition. He was hands-on as a child. Ross showed his fans that he still is.

7. Business

Ross has also partnered with cookies. Cookies are an international cannabis brand to launch three specially curated pot strains. The mogul has his hands in everything. He’s worked with luxury car designer Richard B Caliente and producer duo cool and Dre. Together they turned a Porsche 9/11 into a unique piece of car art.


  • Luc Bell-Aire Sparkling Wine Beverages
  • The Rose (2011)
  • The Blue (2012)
  • Ewing Athletics
  • Reebok
  • Shades

He is the ambassador of the brand. Under the brand are only two varieties of Bel Air. The rose is a combination of three grapes. The blue (2012) was released soon after. That’s because it is not champagne. It only costs 30 to $50 a pop. Ross has also made lucrative collaboration deals with Ewing athletics. The deal includes selling $180 luxury sneakers. They could sell $300 exotic sneakers at one time. He had this deal with Reebok too. That came as a surprise. The shoe brand usually deals with athletes. He wears sunglasses to protect his eyes from the ultrabright dirty south sun. His eyes are protected by the overwhelming camera flash too. He has worn them on music videos and photo shoots. He loves to decorate his wrist and feet.

8. Generational Boss

Ross is aging. It's evident he wants to be generational. He has two kids. The mogul pays $11,000 a month to support them. He laced his son with the ultimate sweet 16th birthday gift. Ross Jr was gifted his very own restaurant franchise. The kid is officially a Boss now. For his daughter's Sweet sixteen, he had an extravagant celebration. The Miami Casa arena hosted the event. The venue is formerly the Versace mansion. He gave his baby girl a brand new $222,000 Bentley Bantayan hybrid. His kids boss up just like him. Like himself, they will be bosses as well.

William Roberts

William did everything needed to be in this position. He relocated, shops at swap meets, and he collects. His mogul friends in the industry kept those habits they used for wrong just like he did. There's a team around him like he always kept his friends growing up. The only difference is they help him build wealth. You have to have a team to help you build wealth. The team is at the heart of all business sales. He changed the narrative of his life. Evidently, he wants it to stay that way. He does not seem to have a desire to go back.
