Maybach Music Group founder, rapper and businessman Rick Ross understands the value of a dollar and chooses not to spend his coins frivolously.

Over the weekend, Ross posted a story to his Instagram page defending his decision not to hire a contractor to cut down some trees on his property. When he received the estimate to chop down 10 trees, the rapper balked at the quote of $1,000 per tree and decided to cut his trees himself, Complex reports.
