Rapper Rick Ross has been spotted jetting off in his private plane – and let’s just say the design leaves no doubt to the owner.

On the side of the black Gulfstream G550 is Ross’ name in big golden letters.

Each ‘s’ in his surname being a dollar sign, of course.

Flying in style with the Gulfstream G550

Ross’ departure from LAX on June 21 was shared on Instagram, giving fans a chance to check out his swanky jet.

Gulfstream G550 were first developed by General Dynamics’ Gulfstream Aerospace unit in Savannah, Georgia in the early 2000s.

Although they have since ceased production in 2021, they are still seen as a coveted business jet aircraft.

They have room for up to 19 passengers and boast a master bedroom, two spacious bathrooms, and a well-appointed dining room.

Golfer Tiger Woods is also known to own one, at an eye watering cost of $60 million.

Rick Ross’ expensive tastes

This isn’t the first time that the rapper has shown off his pricey possessions.

Last year, the 48-year-old rapper admitted that he’d spent $100 million in six months during an interview.

“I been cooking on the stove for a long time, and really I was getting money the whole time,” Ross said.

“I’m a real frugal n***a at some points, but when it’s time to make a power play, I will. 

“I’ll spend $100 million. I spent that in the last, sh*t, six months.” 

He continued: “I just bought a crib for $35 million, a jet for $35 million, the investments I’m over $100 million in the last six months, and we ain’t just talking about it. We really getting to it and spending it.”

One thing that gets his wallet opening is cars, and he has a ton of them.

Over 100 to be exact – and Ross insists that nobody has a ‘better’ collection than him.

With Maybachs, Rolls-Royces and Bentleys among his haul, who are we to disagree?
