Maybach Music Group CEO Rick Ross envisions his crew as a modernized version of iconic rap group 2 Live Crew in the new issue of Complex magazine.
Asked to consider making a sketch group alongside MMG's Wale and Pill, the "Boss" wasted no time in allowing his imagination to run wild.
"Maybe 2 Live Crew. Have Britney Spears as one of my 'Me So Horny' girls," Ross explained when asked about what sketch group they would parody. "We'd have the shaved-head Britney. The party girl." (Complex)
Last January, Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel revealed his intent to remake a Fat Boys album.
"I f*ck with the fat boy Rick Ross," Sigel revealed in an interview. "Boss. Yo, me, Rick Ross and motherf*cking Fat Joe, we should go back and get that old classic Fat Boys album and get somebody to remake them beats over and we should do [it] over. But put a new twist on it. We would kill that sh*t. Just food for thought. We'd murder that sh*t." (804 Ent)
When asked what group he would remake if given the opportunity, rap newcomer Fred the Godson told SOHH he would also go with The Fat Boys.
"Me, Rick Ross and Fat Joe," Fred told SOHH when asked what his 2011 version of the Fat Boys would look like. "The Fat Joe pick comes from me getting the privilege of meeting him a few months ago; he's a good person. He also said he's a fan of my work. I was just going back and forth with him and he's a good dude. With me and him, it's the BX [Bronx] at the end of the day. That boy has longevity. Say whatever you want about Fat Joe but when you talk about longevity, Fat Joe's name has to come up because he's been doing it for d*mn near 20 years." (SOHH)
This week, Ross officially released his Maybach Music Group compilation album, Self Made Volume 1.
Compilation albums have earned a reputation for having only a couple of songs that are worth a listen. Unfortunately, Maybach Music Group's debut album, "Self Made Vol. 1," helps solidify that view. It's the label's first compilation album, starring one of hip-hop's best in Rick Ross, alongside Maybach's newly signed rappers Wale, Meek Mill, Pill and singer Teedra Moses. The burly and bearded Ross shines like expected through much of the 15-track album, but he doesn't completely overshadow the lyrically gifted Wale and Moses. (ABC News)
