Like father, like son.
Of course, Rick Ross never supplies us with anything less than boss moves! And this time, the 45-year-old rapper has laced his son with the ultimate gift — his very own restaurant franchise.
The rapper, who opened his first Wingstop franchise back in 2011 in Memphis, TN, revealed he purchased his son, William L. Roberts III, his very own franchise for his 16th birthday in an Instagram post.
“Everyone wish my son @mmgbigbank [a] Happy 16th birthday!” wrote the “Aston Martin Music” emcee on Instagram. “Today he became the owner of his 1st @wingstop franchise. You’re now officially a BOSS!!! Keep going.”

AfroTech previously reported that Rick Ross owns at least 25 Wingstop restaurants, which bring in $200,000 each year in sales. It has also been reported that he raked in an estimated $7 million from his Wingstop investments in 2014.
His eldest son is currently making quite the name for himself in sports. Earlier this year, 247Sports reported that Roberts III landed his first two verbal scholarship offers with Miami and Syracuse. As a freshman, he played on varsity for a Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas team that walked away with a 7A state title and went 8-1 during the season. Now, he will continue the legacy as the owner of his own Wingstop franchise, and only time will tell if he follows in his father’s footsteps when it comes to his other various business ventures.
Born in Mississippi, but raised just north of Miami, FL, Rick Ross has always been very vocal about generational wealth and building a legacy.
On Sept. 11, the rapper released “The Perfect Day To Boss Up,” a self-help book that teaches people how to embrace the grind while building wealth. It looks like he is definitely backing that up by setting his children up for success.
In 2020, he told Miami Living magazine that he’d take generational wealth over artistic legacy. It seems as though he’s staying true to his word with the gift that keeps on giving.
Congratulations to William Roberts III on officially becoming a boss.
