Maybach Music Group's Rick Ross is living the dream this week by revealing he is clocking in time alongside renowned producer Dr. Dre for the next seven days.
While mum on the details, a photo of Ricky Rozay and Dre has begun circulating.
Rick Ross showed his idol Dr. Dre a good time during his trip to Miami this week. The West Coast vet flew into town to hit the studio with the Maybach Music boss, but also made time to celebrate. "Got Dr. Dre in Miami all week..my Bday party @ Club Amnesia Hosted by @iamdiddy Sunday will be like never before," tweeted Rozay, who earlier received a call from Dre. DJ Khaled hinted at what's to come. "I told yall the game was going change well hre's a gift," he wrote. "stay tuned!" (Rap-Up)
In early January, the "Boss" hinted at a personal conversation he had with Dre.
"Just spoke to my biggest musical influence for the 1st time. Dr.Dre just changed my life with a phone call.. #richforever," he tweeted January 7th.
"Sh*t amazing..spoke to Hov yesterday..Dre today. #richforever"

Over the summer, Ross credited Dre's album-crafting and career-soaring talent for drawing his interest.
"[I'm on] the biggest tour of the year. It's a first time for myself. It's special for me so I gotta salute the homie Lil Wayne. I would love to tour with a Dr. Dre," Ross revealed in an interview. "I just always was a fan of his music. You know, his ability to produce incredible, not just records but albums. Score albums. Score careers." (Maybach Music Group)
The Southern rap star is currently putting together his upcoming God Forgives, I Don't solo album after suffering two seizures last fall.
"I think we're all aware of his recent health issue, and based on some of the minor setbacks with that, we weren't able to confirm certain opportunities, because he physically wasn't able to deal with certain things at the time," says Def Jam Senior VP of Marketing Chris Atlas. "We want this to be his biggest album -- we know it's going to be his biggest album -- so we did not want to pressure him into releasing an album based on the sake of a date." (Billboard)
In 2010, Ricky Rozay said he felt Dre could enhance his music career.
"I look forward to going to the next level, so hopefully on the next album, you might see a Dr. Dre collaboration or you might see a Frankie Beverly collaboration," Ross told Sway. "I'm a player with this." The Bawse hasn't connected with Dre yet, but he made sure to let his wishes be known. "I'm putting it in the air right now," Ross said of the collaboration. (MTV)
