Rick Ross is currently one of the most established rappers in the hip-hop world right now and is one of the richest as well. He is a true businessman with a taste for the bizarre and there is a method to his madness. Now it seems Ross has launched his own strain of cannabis.
Rick Ross is expanding his business ventures by partnering with the cannabis brand High Tolerance to distribute his own top-shelf strain, called “Collins Avenue.” The name pays homage to Ross’ old stomping grounds in Miami-Dade, where he spent much of his youth.
While speaking to TMZ Hip Hop, Rick Ross stated that High Tolerance produces the best cannabis flower in the world, and he was thrilled to team up with them. The rapper, known for his luxurious lifestyle, says the strain is “the best flower for all the ones who like to blow that good gas.”
Manny, co-founder of High Tolerance, shared his excitement about Ross joining the brand. He even called Rick Ross a “true cannabis connoisseur.” With the addition of Ross to their team – High Tolerance joins other notable rappers such as Jadakiss, Jim Jones, and Ghostface Killah who have also partnered with the brand as ambassadors.
Ross’ new venture into the cannabis industry comes hot on the heels of his recent headlines for a different reason – his livestock escaped from his massive 235-acre estate. Despite neighbors’ complaints, Ross took to social media to assure the public that his animals are harmless. In fact, he introduced his followers to his pet bison Timbuktu while feeding it apples during a livestream from his Promise Land estate.
It seems Ross is branching out into new territories, both in the world of cannabis and with his furry friends on his property.
