Those who know Ross understand how he gets down. So, this upcoming episode promises to be one of the epic podcast’s most authentic, entertaining, and informative.

Rick Ross: The Underpinnings

Rick Ross, the “Teflon Don,” is a massive figure in the hip-hop industry. The artist is a native of Mississippi but bred in the Sunshine State; however, his life wasn’t always filled with such. Regardless, Ross kept it pushing.

Rosay, as Rick Ross is also known, gravitated towards rap and its illustrious top-tier elite artist early in his life. Biography credits Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., and Ice Cube as some of Ross’s early favorites. But it wasn’t until after attending Albany State University that the artist turned toward making his mark in the industry.

Rick Ross: The Come Up

But Ross wasn’t always Ross. He made his debut as Teflon long before he ever took on his signature moniker. Biography notes,

“He debuted on former E.P.M.D. member Erick Sermon’s 2000 compilation Def Squad Presents Erick Sermon, appearing as Teflon Da Don on a track called “Ain’t Shit to Discuss.””

But Ross’s single “Hustlin” defined him as an artist to watch. Impressively, that track went certified gold, which was a record-breaking feat for a newcomer into the industry.

Although, at the time, he was an up-and-comer, his path to success was clear. A string of successful projects would follow the blow-up of “Hustlin.”

Master Moves

Performing was one of the few things Ross excelled at. He was also an enterprising entrepreneur and demonstrated that with the founding of the MMG. Maybach Music Group in 2009. And as the name indicates and as Ross designed it, Maybach was a high-achieving, quality-driven label turning out some premier artists of the time.

It wasn’t long before it became clear Ross was a boss on multiple planes. But his organizational designs and label leadership were only a tiny subcomponent of his skill set. Ross was a business behemoth, expanding his entrepreneurial empire in massive ways. Rosay not only showed his hand as a real estate investor but also as a franchise owner. His insight was impressive and led to overall profitability. His ability to maintain the businesses set him up as one of the wealthiest in the hip-hop industry. According to Cheat Sheet, Ross has an impressive net worth of about 40 million.
