Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross recently talked about the success of his new Mastermind solo album and explained why its chart-topping achievement is bigger than just him.
According to Ricky Rozay, putting out number one albums helps guest collaborators experience being atop the sales chart.
“You know what, when this is what you center everything around, you just want the best, not only for yourself, but for your team, everybody you build with,” Ross said. “I not only want a No. 1 for me but for all the new-time dudes who’ve never been on a No. 1 album.” (IFWT)
Ricky Rozay recently congratulated himself and thanked fans for making his latest LP the nation’s number one album.
“Still hustlin. #1 toast to my fans….. @belairerose http://mastermindgr.am/5IA,” Rozay tweeted March 11.

According to reports, Ricky Rozay’s new LP toppled its competition with nearly 180,000 sold copies in week one.
Rapper Rick Ross collects his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as “Mastermind” arrives atop the list. The set sold 179,000 copies in the week ending March 9, according to Nielsen SoundScan. While it starts with slightly fewer sales than his last album — 2012’s “God Forgives, I Don’t” launched at No. 1 with 218,000 — the first-week sales for “Mastermind” are about on par with Ross’ usual debut frames.

Ross raised eyebrows last week by moving his LP’s release date up.
While Rick Ross was preparing for the release date of tomorrow, March 4th, he decided to move the release date up to make sure the fans had a chance to cop his new album, Mastermind, as well as Pharrell’s new album. The MMG head honcho’s new album, Mastermind, is in stores today, instead of tomorrow, just to combat the earlier release date that Pharrell had placed for his new project, G I R L. (Stupid Dope)
