Rick Ross is a large man who likes to live large.
But he's also a smart man, who knows how to save a buck.
In an interview with Forbes, he explained that he saves a million dollars a year by mowing the lawn of the mansion he bought from Evander Holyfield.
“When I bought the Fayetteville estate, locals would see me walk out of a restaurant and scream, ‘You know Holyfield spent $1 million a year to cut the grass,'” he admits. So I decided that I was gonna cut my own grass… I went down to John Deere and asked to see the biggest tractor, the most efficient tractor. I told them I had 200-plus acres that I wanted to keep cut, and they pointed out the right tractor. I bought it right then and there. I bought the extended attachment on the back that would cut even wider. Once I got it back home, I filled it up with gas. I may have sat in the same spot for two hours before I got everything working, but once I got it going, I didn’t stop. I cut grass for about five hours.”
In addition to cutting his own grass, Ross revealed a couple of more money-saving and money-making hacks: He rents the house for movies, like Coming To America 2. He also tends to fly commercial, despite being surrounded by less rich rappers who stunt their jaunts on private jets.
