Rick Ross has conquered the rap game, and now he is setting his eyes on the skies with hopes of becoming one of the richest people in the world.
The "Ashton Martin Music" rapper just copped a new whip that he flexed while appearing on the latest installment of the "Robb Report," as cited by Hip Hop DX. In the three-and-a-half-minute episode, Rozay gives fans a tour of the aircraft's interior while explaining the significance of his investment. For him, it's all about going to the top.
While it's clear this purchase came with a few commas, Rick Ross admits he didn't overspend.
"I stayed within my budget, I did, just like a boss, as a boss should," he said while sitting in a seat on the aircraft and flashing a smile.
"My budget was nice. Imma keep it real. We had to have it. We ain't cut no corners."
The Grammy winner's flying bird is outfitted in black with his name written in bold gold font across the center of the plane's exterior. The rapper's music label that he founded –Maybach Music Group's– logo is also displayed near the plane's rear wing.
The beige and tan interior of the plane is laid out in a "Rozay vibe" that features hints of his favorite color, red, off-white leather seats, exquisite woodwork, custom sewn Louis Vuitton throw blankets, and new technology.
He also says the plane can accommodate an impeccable dining experience with three to four meals on a flight.
"It's a beautiful thing," he shared.
For Ross, this purchase was something he's been working on for nearly a year.
"I began the process of buying the jet a little less than a year ago. I spent maybe six months looking at different planes, understanding the difference, this, that, you know, just all the small things, the details, and I knew I needed this G550," he said.
Though Rozay has a lavish collection of vehicles, this one serves a more distinct purpose.
“When it came to my decision of me purchasing the G550, my plane, it was only based on one thing — ultimately, me tripling my wealth. That was ultimately the plan in the conversation when I spoke to some of my counterparts, some guys that I’m in business with."
He continued, “It was most definitely based on me being able to get more things accomplished in a different format — something that was much more easier on myself. Y’know, just time being much more valuable, time meaning much more to me. That's what it was all based about.”
