Rick Ross may show off that he has money, but he will cut corners to save money.

In a recent interview with Forbes Magazine on Monday (June 14), Ross reveals that he cuts his own grass at his 54,000-square-foot estate in Fayetteville, Ga.

"When I bought the Fayetteville estate, locals would see me walk out of a restaurant and scream, 'You know Holyfield spent $1 million a year to cut the grass,'" says Ross. "So I decided that I was gonna cut my own grass. And that's what I did. I went down to John Deere and asked to see the biggest tractor, the most efficient tractor. I told them I had 200-plus acres that I wanted to keep cut, and they pointed out the right tractor. I bought it right then and there. I bought the extended attachment on the back that would cut even wider."

He continued: "Once I got it back home, I filled it up with gas. I may have sat in the same spot for two hours before I got everything working, but once I got it going, I didn’t stop. I cut grass for about five hours."

Cutting grass helps him reflect on life:

"I sit there and have my cannabis rolled up, and, man, I look at the property and can appreciate my struggles and my triumphs, those rough days," he says. "It's the smallest thing, but it keeps a smile on my face. So, you know, for anybody who doesn't cut their own grass, I would say take time out every two or three months to cut your grass because it is such a great and peaceful sensation."
