Rick Ross On Being A "Hood Billionaire": We're Keeping Our Money In The Hood (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross is dropping his second studio album of 2014. After releasing Mastermind in March, Rozay returns with the 16-track Hood Billionaire.

Even though Ross’ name has become a regular fixture on the annual Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings list, the “Movin’ Bass” rhymer has not reached billionaire status yet. So why did he choose that title for his latest project? HipHopSince1987 caught up with Ross and asked him to define “hood billionaire.”

“It ain’t based on the type of money. It’s somebody that will inspire you. When you see them coming down the street as a shorty, and you stop and you point – that was a hood billionaire,” explained Ross. “That’s what it’s about. Just being in the hood. You see us in the hood. We ain’t going nowhere. We ain’t taking our money nowhere else. We keep it right here.”

Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire is available on iTunes.
