Rick Ross has quietly become one of the most consistent rappers in the game today, amassing a catalogue that few rappers could match.

While he might not be up there with Jay-Z, Eminem or Drake when it comes to the most number one albums on the Billboard 200, he’s certainly holding his own. From 2006’s Port of Miami to 2021’s Richer Than I Ever Been, here are all of Rick Ross’ first week album sales over his recording career.
