Rick Ross Says He’s ‘Not About Throwing Money Away’, Cuts His Own Grass & Flies Commercial
Rick Ross might be a millionaire, but he’s still frugal about a few things.
While the rapper’s Fayetteville, Ga. home served as a prestigious location in the recent Coming 2 America film and was previously owned by boxer Evander Holyfield, Rick Ross said he saves money by cutting the grass of the 235-acre estate himself.
He told Forbes,
“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.”
“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 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.”
Interestingly enough, he added that the task was actually therapeutic for him.
“I realized that this was something I wanted to do. It was subconscious. I sit there and have my cannabis rolled up, and, man, I look at the property and can appreciate my struggles and my triumphs, those rough days. It’s the smallest thing, but it keeps a smile on my face. So, you know, for anybody who doesn’t cut their own grass, I would say take time out every two or three months to cut your grass because it is such a great and peaceful sensation.”
That’s not all. He said he loves to go thrifting at antique stores and has joy in
“finding beautiful things that cost $8 or $20.”
And while many of his celebrity friends often opt for private jets, the Hustlin’ rapper said he’s good with flying commercial. But he still appreciates the finer things in life.
“Yes, I’m not about throwing money away, but it’s important that people enjoy the fruits of your labor and stay ahead of the curve. I make sure that I am surrounded by love and inspiration and motivation. Through the window I am looking out of right now in the Southwest Ranches, I can see my red-on-red 458 Ferrari, and it is inspiring.”
