During his interview with Undisputed host Shannon Sharpe for his Club Shay Shay podcast, Rozay shared how he sets the tone when doing business with any company or entity.
“When I go and sit down in meetings the first thing I let them know is what excites me!” Ross annunciates. “And, nine-times-out-of-ten it’s a dollar figure. We may be able to work something out but I gotta be clear and make it clear, ‘This is what excites Rozay.’ As soon as I say that number, its like a ‘Bah,’ go off and the confetti falls. Because don’t you want me excited!”
The Port Of Miami 2 rapper went on to describe the timeline of his dealings for the use of his mega-mansion and also inadvertently gave a crash course in the financial principle of interest.
“A lot of times, I don threw a number out there before, they moved a little slow and I went up on the number and they met me there,” Ross says. “I actually had a film, that was filmed at my estate, and I threw a number out there. I said, ‘This is a huge production this shouldn’t be that much. Hey, I understand what you guys need, that’s $2.5 M’s. Yeah, $2.5 million, yeah, most definitely, yeah that’s it.’ Ross continues with a smile and a careless cackle
“Oh yeah, they moved a lil slow and, aw man we tapped out at $2.75.”
In the grand scheme of things, the bag Rozay received for the use of his wildly massive crib is considerably small — because according to Variety, Paramount Pictures sold Murphy’s movie to Amazon Studios in a deal that was reportedly worth $125 million. Ross doesn’t appear to be sweating it though, as he recently bragged about charging a hefty $20,000 fee just for filming crews to come and scout his lavish pad that includes an entire bowling alley.
