How did Rick Ross build his net worth?

Rick Ross burst onto the hip hop scene in 2006 with his debut smash-hit 2006 single, "Hustlin." With Ross gaining international fame, he started a bidding war between Irv Gotti's Murder Inc. and Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment for his contractual commitment.

However, Ross decided to sign with Def Jam Records instead, after meeting with its CEO, Jay-Z. Ross would release his first studio album, "Port of Miami," under the Def Jam label. The album was an instant success, debuting at the #1 spot on the Billboard 200.

Ross followed up on his success with his second album, "Trilla," in 2008. The album followed in the footsteps of its predecessor, debuting at the top spot on the Billboard 200. After the success of his first two studio albums, Ross went on to found his record label, "Maybach Music Group," in 2009.

He was the first artist to sign to Diddy's management company, "Cîroc Entertainment." The artist sparked beef with rapper 50 Cent, resulting in 50 airing his financials o the Ed Lover morning show after obtaining a copy of the records through Ross's child support case.

The records showed that Ross was not as wealthy as reported. The artist also came under fire for his rapper name, taking the moniker from "Freeway Ricky" Rick Ross, a notorious crack dealer with connections to Mexican cartels.

However, these minor setbacks didn't stop the rapper's rise to fame. MTV named Ross "The Hottest Rapper in the Game" in 2012.
