Rick Ross Bought A $1 Million Home Just So He Could Drive Past It Every Day

What would you do if you were rich? Like, really rich? Trainers made of solid gold? Porsche with your massive face plastered on the bonnet? Steak and chips with Salt Bae?
Or, if you're Rick Ross, buy a super massive house that you don't even live in - just so you can drive by it every day and admire the view and your own enormous wealth.
Chatting on REVOLT's new show Assets Over Liabilities this week, while presumably tossing fivers into the nearest toilet, the music mogul and some time rapper said luxury homes were his go-to when he started stacking some serious cash.
So, he bought a huge gaff in Atlanta to mostly look at rather than actually live in.
"Homes was something I was always fascinated about," said Ross, who's worth an estimated $40 million.
"So me and my homies started coming up to Atlanta. We used to ride by here all the time and just be like God d**n.
"After I got my deal and my situation, I bought a million dollar home maybe two minutes from here that I still own that's right around the corner, just so I can ride by it every day while I'm in Atlanta, and that's what the play was."
Ross also counts a $3.5 million home in Florida and a 109-room pad in Georgia in his residences, which means he must have. a massive key chain.
Especially if the ignition locks for his 100+ cars are on there!
Ross has only just learned to drive at the age of 45, which is probably a good idea when your garage is bigger than a small European city.
The rap tycoon has worked with the likes of Drake, Busta Rhymes and Pop Smoke over the years, racking up writing and producing credits for some of the biggest names in the game.
So now he's not illegally joyriding cars in his spare time, how does the self-made baller - who cuts his own lawn to save himself $1 million a year, like a true man of the people - like to reflect on his empire?
He told Forbes: "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 keeps a smile on my face."
I can imagine it does, Rick. Fancy lending us a fiver?
