Rick Ross has had the word “billion” in his vocabulary for quite some time now, from dropping Hood Billionaire in 2014 to naming his son Billion four years later, and he now claims to be on the path to being worth that amount.
Rozay has previously talked about operating at a level that involves billions of dollars and has even referred to himself as a billionaire before. On Tuesday (November 7), the Miami rapper took to his Instagram Stories to announce that he’s only a few miles away from actually attaining that status.
“We racin’ to a billion, n-gga,” he told his social media followers. “I’m a year away. I’m a year away. Let’s go, baby!”
Earlier this year, he put himself in the billionaire conversation alongside one of America’s most divisive businessmen. In mid-September, the Biggest Boss took to social media to show off his shiny black and gold private jet, which was parked at an airport near former president Donald Trump’s aircraft.
The politician’s jet featured similar markings as Ross,’ albeit in red, white and blue colors — a nod to the American flag. Also impossible to ignore was the fact that Trump’s plane dwarfed that of the mogul.
“Billionaires Row [champagne toast emoji],” Ross wrote in his Instagram caption, claiming membership in the billionaire boys’ club.
While his financial flex has yet to be verified and recent estimates peg his net worth at a figure between $100-150million, he would become just the fourth Hip Hop artist to surpass that milestone following JAY-Z, Kanye West and Diddy.
Ye, who was at one point the richest rapper alive, lost the title last year after Adidas terminated their lucrative Yeezy partnership due to his antisemitic comments. The move saw his net worth plummet from $1.5 billion to around $400million.
KIRO 7 reports Seattle agencies have joined forces to introduce the inaugural ‘Black Black Friday’ card to celebrate and support Black-owned businesses in the Puget Sound region on Nov. 24.
Spearheaded by Seattle advertising agency DNA, in collaboration with Intentionalist, the Black Friday card is an innovative card that promises shoppers a 20% discount at numerous participating Black-owned businesses.
Among the businesses covered by the ‘Black Black Friday’ card are Foot Print Wine, Queencare, Creamy Cone Café, Jacob Willard Home, and many more across diverse industries. The card, available on their website, provides shoppers with attractive discounts and contributes significantly to supporting local Black-owned enterprises.
The discount the card offers is generously covered by BECU, ensuring that participating businesses receive the full value of each purchase made with the card. The outlet reports that this collaborative effort is not just about providing discounts; it’s a strategic move to uplift and empower Black-owned businesses during the crucial holiday season.
According to a news release, the overarching goal is to generate a minimum of $250,000 in revenue for local Black-owned businesses. This initiative seeks to make a meaningful impact on the economic landscape, emphasizing the importance of inclusivity and empowerment within the business community.
In a statement, the organizers expressed their commitment to fostering positive change. “The goal is to generate a minimum of $250,000 in revenue for local Black-owned businesses during the holiday season.” It underscores the community’s collective effort to make a tangible difference in supporting historically disadvantaged businesses.
As the ‘Black Black Friday’ card takes center stage, it symbolizes a move toward a more equitable and inclusive shopping experience. Seattle aims to create a ripple effect beyond the holiday season by encouraging patrons to engage with Black-owned businesses.
The official “Candy Cane Lane” trailer is here, providing a more extensive glimpse of the storyline and ensemble cast. The original holiday film is set to premiere globally on Prime Video on December 1, 2023, just in time for the holiday season.
In the Candy Cane Lane trailer, we see Murphy’s character, Chris, in competition with the neighborhood to have the best-decorated house. He and his youngest daughter, played by Madison Thomas, stumble upon a mysterious Christmas store. In his excited holiday haste, he fails to read the fine print on a lengthy receipt.
In doing so, he unwittingly signs his life away after being tricked by an evil elf, played by Jillian Murphy. Throughout the trailer, the stakes are clear: if he doesn’t meet them, he’ll become one of those “weird happy meal toys,” as described by his wife, Carol (Tracee Ellis Ross).
The trailer also provides a glimpse of the other characters in the film, including Danielle Pinnock and DC Young Fly as news reporters. And intriguingly, the trailer hints at a Black Santa Claus, adding an element of diversity to the holiday narrative.
Thaddeus J. Mixson, Gennaya Walton, and Madison Thomas also star in the family comedy.

Tamirat Tola of Ethiopia set a course record to win the TCS New York City Marathon men's race, while the women's race came down to a dash to the finish among 3 runners.
Hellen Obiri of Kenya emerged the victor.
Earlier, Catherine Debrunner and Marcel Hug shattered records in winning their respective Wheelchair Races.
Thousands of athletes, pros and amateurs, wound their way across a 26.2-mile course sidelined by a crowd of thousands of spectators through the five boroughs on Sunday in the 52nd annual event.
The top American finisher was Kellyn Taylor in a time of 2:29:48.
This was a stellar women's field that was expected to potentially take down the course record of 2:22:31 set by Margaret Okayo in 2003.
Unlike last year when the weather was unseasonably warm with temperatures in the 70s, Sunday's race was much cooler with it being in the 50s - ideal conditions for record breaking times and for the 50,000 runners.
Instead the women had a tactical race with 11 runners, including Americans Kellyn Taylor and Molly Huddle in the lead pack for the first 20 miles. Taylor and Huddle both led the group at points before falling back and finishing in eighth and ninth.
