After recently purchasing former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield‘s mansion, Rick Ross is explaining what prompted him to buy the “largest single family home in GA,” which boasts 54,000 square feet of living space.
In an interview with Revolt TV, Rozay says he always dreamed of buying the Fayetteville home. “I rode by that property for years and I used to just look at it,” he says. “I just felt like me acquiring that property would let me speak into some kids and give them that same passion.”
Ross adds that he’s still wrapping his mind around the size of his property, which sits on 105 acres and includes a 350,0000-gallon outdoor pool, a bowling alley and a baseball field.
“That’s a huge crib, I went in it last week [prior] to walking in it before I made the purchase last month and I found ten new bedrooms that I didn’t even know was there,” he says.
The rapper adds that he bought the home with good intent. “There’s somebody that needs to see that,” Rozay concludes. “There’s somebody that needs that inspiration.”
Last year, Holyfield lost the home to foreclosure, which was priced at $10 million. Although its rumored Rozay purchased the home below the asking price, he’ll shell out roughly $1 million annually for basic maintenance and around $17,000 a month on electricity alone.
