Rick Ross Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $38 Million

William Leonard “Rick Ross” Roberts II is a rapper, songwriter, record producer and CEO of the Maybach Music Group (MMG) who has an estimated net worth of $38 million. Even though Ross now has a lot of money and fame it wasn’t always like that, in fact, back in the 90s he went to college on a football scholarship, and then he worked as a correctional officer at the South Florida Reception Center (Dade Correctional Institution) for about 18 months or so. Now who would have ever thought that this guy would become the successful and famous rapper that he is today? I’m sure that none of the inmates did.

I’m a true rap fan, I’ve been following closely all major hip-hop artists, songs, and videos for the past two decades, in fact, I even remember when I saw Rick Ross singing on a rap video for the first time, it was on Trina’s Told Y’All video, and I actually remember thinking to myself, “Wow this guy can’t rap, he won’t make it far”. But guess what? A few years later he made me eat my words, because he did make it, not long after Trina released that video Ross blew up big time, and quickly became one of rap’s biggest icons, and one of the hottest rappers in the game today.

I guess that making it to the top wasn’t easy for Rick, he had to make changes both stylistically and physically, he grew a beard, shaved his head, and probably even gained a little bit of weight, he also changed the tone of his voice, and his rapping style as well, he became a more aggressive or gangsta rapper, therefore, he was able to appeal to the right audience, the kind of audience that likes real hip hop and buy albums.

When Rick Ross released his first studio album titled “Port of Miami” in 2006 I was blown away, especially after listening to the album’s first two singles “Hustlin'” and “Push It”. Those two songs turned Ross into a rap star practically overnight among the hip hop community, and from that moment on I have always remained interested in his music.

William is not an angel or a saint, he’s a human being, so as any other normal human being he has a tendency to get into trouble every now and then. In fact, Ross has been arrested several times throughout his life, he’s also had to face several lawsuits, and he’s even had feuds with other rappers such as 50 Cent. Even though he’s gone through a lot in his life, he’s been able to get back up and keep on moving forward, that’s why he’s currently one of the best selling hip hop artists in the world, and also one of the highest paid.

Rick Ross has earned his wealth rapping, most of his money comes from album sales, digital downloads, concerts, and merchandising. He’s also made a couple of extra millions by way of big juicy endorsements from big brand companies such as Reebok and Ciroc.

But, how much is Rick Ross really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines William Leonard has an estimated net worth of $35 million, other sources claim that he’s worth somewhere around $28 million. However, after making our own calculations and taking into account the most recent information about his career, salary and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that he might be a little bit richer than what most people think, or say. We believe that Ross has a total fortune of $38 million dollars approximately.

Forbes Magazine has not ranked Rick on their 100 Richest Celebrities list yet, but they did include him on the Highest Paid Hip Hop Artists list a couple of times.
