After graduating from Albany State University, Rick Ross, alias William Leonard Roberts II, spent nearly two years as a corrections officer. He changed his identity from Teflon Da Don to Rick Ross after being inspired by “Freeway” Rick Ross, a notorious drug lord. After publishing his hit single “Hustlin,” he signed a multimillion-dollar contract with Jay-Z’s Def Jam Records. He sold tens of mιllιons of singles and albums, and his debut album debuted at number one. Rick Ross is one of the highest-paid musicians in the world, with a net worth of $55 mιllιon.
Rick Ross also makes real estate investments. He has purchased a number of expensive homes in Georgia and Florida during the last 20 years. His most expensive asset is a $5.8 mιllιon Georgia home with 109 rooms that he acquired from boxer Evander Holyfield. Let’s check out Rick Ross’ lovely house.
Evander Holyfield was the undisputed cruiserweight champion in the 1980s and earned more than $350 mιllιon. The former boxer retired to spend time with his family following a string of defeats and failing endeavors.
His Georgia home, one of his largest holdings, needed repairs. The Sun claims that the mansion’s $1 mιllιon maintenance expense was the reason it was put up for auction as a result of foreclosure. After Holyfield sold it to a bank for $7.5 mιllιon, the home was listed for $8.2 mιllιon. Ross paid $5.8 million for the auction, which had a starting bid of $2.5 mιllιon.
The Fayetteville County, Georgia property was constructed in 1994. The palace encompasses 45,00 square feet on 235 acres. This property is stunning due to the large fountain in the driveway and the white stone facade with moldings. All attention is attracted to the magnificent double-winding staircase leading upstairs. There are 12 bedrooms and 21 toilets in the 109 rooms.
Along with the mansion, Rick Ross has owned a number of homes. In 2012, he paid $5.2 mιllιon for an eight-bedroom, eleven-bathroom home on the Fort Lauderdale oceanfront. In 2016, he sold the Georgia estate for $6 mιllιon , per Celebrity Net Worth.
