Rick Ross has had the word “billion” in his vocabulary for quite some time now, from dropping Hood Billionaire in 2014 to naming his son Billion four years later, and he now claims to be on the path to being worth that amount.
Rozay has previously talked about operating at a level that involves billions of dollars and has even referred to himself as a billionaire before. On Tuesday (November 7), the Miami rapper took to his Instagram Stories to announce that he’s only a few miles away from actually attaining that status.
“We racin’ to a billion, n-gga,” he told his social media followers. “I’m a year away. I’m a year away. Let’s go, baby!”

Earlier this year, he put himself in the billionaire conversation alongside one of America’s most divisive businessmen. In mid-September, the Biggest Bawse took to social media to show off his shiny black and gold private jet, which was parked at an airport near former president Donald Trump’s aircraft.
The politician’s jet featured similar markings as Ross,’ albeit in red, white and blue colors — a nod to the American flag. Also impossible to ignore was the fact that Trump’s plane dwarfed that of the MMG mogul.
“Billionaires Row [champagne toast emoji],” Ross wrote in his Instagram caption, claiming membership in the billionaire boys’ club.
While his financial flex has yet to be verified and recent estimates peg his net worth at a figure between $100-150million, he would become just the fourth Hip Hop artist to surpass that milestone following JAY-Z, Kanye West and Diddy.
Ye, who was at one point the richest rapper alive, lost the title last year after Adidas terminated their lucrative Yeezy partnership due to his antisemitic comments. The move saw his net worth plummet from $1.5 billion to around $400million.
