Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross received a late Christmas gift over the weekend, as he revealed details on a personal conversation he had with renowned hitmaker Dr. Dre.
In addition to linking with the Doc, Ricky Rozay also posted a photo of himself and Grammy-winning producer Timbaland in the studio.
“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)
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.

A year prior, Ross called out 50 Cent for ruining Dr. Dre’s beats.
“He’s not straight, he’s a f*g, he’s gay, you know it, I know it” Ross said in an interview with Devi Dev. “Listen, we’re not gonna waste time on Curly, he’s a monkey, he can’t dress…Do us the biggest favor, stop f*cking up those Dr. Dre beats. Dre, you the best. Send ‘em to me. If not, pay me to write his raps. I’ll do that, it’s not a problem. Do me the biggest favor, n*ggas don’t wanna see me, don’t play yourself.” (Hard Knock TV)
