Rick Ross is known as one of hip-hop’s biggest moguls. The Florida-bred rapper boasts a healthy slew of investments, including his most prominent venture as a franchise owner of multiple Wingstop locations throughout the country. He’s also the CEO of his very own label Maybach Music Group (MMG), which is home to artists such as Wale, Meek Mill, and more.
Born William Leonard Roberts II, Ross grew up “across the bridge,” in a Miami at odds with the glitzy nightclubs and yachts of South Beach. During this time, he honed in on his musical talent, overcoming setback after setback until a song called “Hustlin’” changed his life forever.
From his first major label deal to the controversies & health scares, he had to transcend along the way, a revealing portrait of one of the biggest stars in the rap game and an intimate look at the birth of an artist.
Now, Ross has inspirations to help change the scope of the entrepreneurial space. So many business owners are one connection away from getting to that next level and Ross plans to be that link for getting the right entrepreneurs in the same room to help accelerate their growth.
