Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross has confirmed recent hints and speculation of his time with renowned producer Dr. Dre plus what knowledge the former N.W.A. member has offered him.
According to Ross, their relationship began casual before jumping into business-related matters.
"It was amazing, my brother," Ross said in an interview. "We had the opportunity to just first and foremost touch base like bosses. We went out, we had dinner, we just discussed ideas and that led to the studio." The ever-calculating Ross didn't want to let the cat out of the bag just yet, but working with Dre has already changed his work habits. The advice he gave me, it's already affected the way I've been in the studio for the last week. So let's just say he's full of knowledge and he's a solid guy. Most definitely that's maybe my biggest hip-hop influence in the game." (MTV)
Over the weekend, Dre celebrated Ross' 36th birthday in Miami.
