Southern rapper Rick Ross recently explained his motivation for making unofficial remixes to current hits.
Ross also said fans can expect to see more Internet music videos from his camp.
“Of course, man. You know we’ll never stop releasing those black-and-whites, those virals,” Ross explained in an interview. “We’re actually editing a slew of them right now. So get ready. … That’s just another way we bring [the music] to life. We add color to the situation. We really love to be a part of the music and the history…When I hear a dope Busta Rhymes record, I feel like that’s a part of history, and I want to be a part of that. I want to be a part of that music. I want to put a verse on that. I don’t look at it as every record I jump on or every record I do for someone as necessarily more shine. It’s not necessarily the case. It’s always being a part of that moment in time.” (MTV)
Ross is currently preparing the release of his new underground project, Albert Anastasia EP.

Earlier this month, Ross announced the creation of his new underground project.
“I’m in the lab cooking up Teflon Don, the album,” Ross said in an interview. “I’m also wrapping up a mixtape by the name of Albert Anastasia. The Albert Anastasia EP, hosted by DJ Smallz, lookout for that sh*t. We gonna drop that Memorial Weekend just for the streets…A few n*ggas used to call me ‘Fat Albert’ growing up. It was funny and then stumbled across another name. It’s cool, do your history. It’s most definitely a dope mixtape, it’s most definitely gonna have all new music on there. I’ve been releasing a few freestyles, just prepping the sh*t up. It’s gonna be a classic mixtape just to feed the real n*ggas in the streets just before I give them this Teflon Don.” (Spliff TV)
In July, Ross will release his new album, Teflon Don.
“It was a real good move,” Ross said about the delay. “I felt like the June 29th was a little too premature, that was the date my homie Diddy was coming out on anyway. And you know that’s the homie, so I felt like coming in the early July, middle July was best for me from day one. But it’s always good anyway man as long as you’re setting up all your pieces up in the right place. You’re setting your radio up, you’re setting your marketing up, the rest of that sh*t come in place when you got hits.” (Rap Radar)
