Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts II, is one of the wealthiest Rappers on the planet. He’s an American Rapper/Producer, and also an Entrepreneur. He is also the founder of the record label “Maybach Music Group”, and his net worth is estimated to be $35million.
This didn’t just happen to him overnight. It took him over 10 (ten) years of hard work to make a living from his passion. Despite the fact that his music suggests that he made wealth through illegal activities, he actually made it through hardwork; Rick spends a lot of time in the studio.
Being successful takes time and requires a lot of hustle. You make the decision to be successful, and then, do everything you can to reach that point in your life. Once you’ve decided what you want for your life, go after it, and don’t look back. Don’t let anyone stop you.
