Publisher's Summary

A captivating and inspiring guide to building an untouchable empire from mud to marble, no matter what obstacles stand in the way

Rick Ross is a hip-hop icon and a towering figure in the business world, but his path to success was not always easy. Despite adversity and setbacks, Ross held tight to his vision and never settled for anything less than greatness. Now, for the first time, he shares his secrets to success, offering his own life as a road map to listeners looking to build their own empire. Along the way he reveals: 

  • How to turn your ambition into action 
  • Tips for managing and investing your money 
  • Inside stories from his business and music ventures 
  • Why failure is central to success 
  • Secrets to handling stressful situations 
  • How to build the perfect team 

As Ross explains, “It doesn’t matter what’s going on. Even the most dire situation is just another opportunity to boss up.” Intimate, insightful and brimming with no-nonsense advice, The Perfect Time to Boss Up is the ideal book for hustlers everywhere.

Editor's Pick

Get your hustle on
Before you judge another self development title, forget everything you know about the genre and hop in the Lambo with Rick Ross. The Maybach Music Group mogul strikes yet again with this honest and approachable road map to personal success. As a lifelong fan of rap music, I always saw Ross as a unique entity. His journey from parole officer to veritable hip-hop brand rewrote the script for what it means to be a ''real OG,'' and his influence over the industry cannot be overstated. While I tend to stray away from this sort of title for fear of it being preachy, Ross meets you at eye level and offers his philosophy in a very digestible manner. So rev your engine, get your money up, and give this fresh title a listen. —Seth H., Audible Editor

No Excuses

I finished this audible book so fast that I looked up and said no it can't be over. I plan to re-listen because of how quick it was. I really enjoyed this book and I walked away with much to reflect upon. It is a perfect book to listen to as this was my first time trying audible. The voice of the narrator was great and I think he added to the experience. I definitely recommend this book to anyone ready to change their life and not afraid of hard work turning into amazing results. I'm ready! Thanks Rick Ross!

A abundance of game!!!

Wow this book had me locked in from start to finish. At no point did he lose me because each chapter had a very valuable message and was easy to relate to. The narrator also did a great job with the inflection of his voice. I listened to the entire book throughout a shift at work and I definitely plan on doing so again.

Spoke Nothing that We Didnt Already Know...

Book Was Very Vague and Bland... We All Know About Rick Ross's Success and All His Business Ventures... Nothing was Said in This Book that We Didn't Already Hear in His Songs... That's All this Book is, an Extension and a Sum Up of All His Raps... Nothing About His Childhood and Nothing about What Created His Hunger to Be Successful.. Not Worth Listening to More than Once... In All Actuality, 50 Cent's HUSTLE HARD, HUSTLE SMART Audio Book is Way Better in My Opinion....

Great motivation

This book was a great read. There were a few instances were some of the music quotes weren’t necessary. I understood why they were mentioned, but in some instances, too many were shared, which took away potential lessons that could have been included.

Nonetheless, the story was well written. I believe the narrator struggled with reading some words or phrases, but the overall performance was great. I think the book is also timely and gives just enough to provide a push and make you reflect.

If you don’t wanna boss up and level up your life after reading this, then read it again

Great book, great perspective, and the way he tied everything in together is the works of a great author. I recommend to any and everyone, especially entrepreneurs.

Masterfully crafted

This book blends thoughtful and insightful pearls of wisdom with language that can be understood by all.

Furthermore, the narrator stays true to the essence of the author and the material, delivering the text with the bravado of a rapper, all while educating the listener on how to "boss up".

A definite must-have!

Set Goals!

As the owner of an executive coaching business, I’m always looking for ideas on how to help clients improve their position in life. This book has a great story, I just wish Ross would have read it himself since he uses his voice for a living. Some of the key takeaways are that goal setting is key, start small, find time to meditate, do things aligned with your external presentation and focus on accumulating assets. But most importantly, you can manifest things by speaking them out loud, which is why I would love to interview Ross for my podcast, “Earn More Tutoring,” and I look forward to the day makes time for that.

Feel Ready To Boss Up!!

I absolutely loved the book and narration! It's like reading this gave me a new insight into the mind of Rick Ross and How he thinks beyond the Flashy Cars and the rap !! Highlighted in such a simple way several key ingredients for success that has been talked about from the greats such as Warren buffet , napoleon Hill only that I felt more connected to his way of telling as I can relate - Amazing Book Defo recommend.

The books a hustle.

Not a bad motivational 3 hours, but it’s no more helpful than the title of the book. I wasn’t a fan but I do have a better understanding and respect for Rick Ross. He can hustle but we all can if we put the work in. Better ways to spend your time.

Fantastic story

Loved this book. compared to Hurricans, this was lacking the quality and refinements that the first book had. Overall it was an amazing insight into the latest years of his life since the first book was released. it is definitely worth the read and was very insightful in some of his ventures and inner thinking of the Biggest Boss Rick Ross. If he had a second edition maybe the book could include more insights into his stocks and bonds options and other investments that he has made. I really liked the book overall and was well worth the read. Thanks so much for putting it all into words Ricky!
