Rick Ross picks up 87 acres in metro Atlanta for $1 million

The land isn’t far from his mansion

Rick Ross has gone from growing up in an impoverished area to a record label boss.

Rick Ross continues to expand his footprint in metro Atlanta.

The rapper recently purchased 87 acres of land in Fayetteville for $1 million, TMZ reported. The property is adjacent to his mansion and includes two lakes and two houses that the celebrity news website reported could be rented out or renovated for the MC to use.

The one-time Albany State University attendee revealed the purchase on Instagram Wednesday, Oct. 21 writing in the caption, “Promise Land just got BIGGER.”

Realtor Mitt Conerly Sr. of Metro West Realty brokered the sale and snapped a photo with Rick Ross, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts II, holding a “Sold” sign.

The new plot of land comes more than a year after news emerged that the performer’s sprawling Fayetteville mansion will be a filming location for the upcoming “Coming to America” sequel.

“The reason I believe in it is because they’re filming at my estate in Atlanta right now,” he told Los Angeles' Power 106 in a conversation about a follow-up to the 1988 comedy. “It’s going to be dope.”

Rick Ross purchased the 44,234 square-foot home in 2014. The mega-mansion has 109 rooms and counts a 135-seat theater, a 100-person dining room and a bowling alley among them. The huge estate formerly belonged to heavyweight championship boxer Evander Holyfield, who built it in 1994.

Aside from being a filming location for “Coming to America 2,” the mansion also served as a set for 2018′s “Superfly.” That same year, the movie’s production designer, Graham “Grace” Walker, spoke to Architectural Digest about how he transformed the space into a movie set.

“It was so him. There were huge photographs of Rick Ross everywhere and gold records and it was very rapperesque, if that’s such a word," he said. "I’m talking about hundreds and hundreds of bits—of tchotchkes. The dining room table was absolutely immaculately set out with beautiful plates and cutlery. It was very expensive stuff. The minute you walk in the front door, you would swear you had just walked onto the set of Scarface. There’s a monstrous stairway coming down both sides. It was full-on marble, where you just go, ‘Oh my God, where are we now?’”
