Maybach Music Group head Rick Ross may have the number one album in the country next week but the “Bawse” has now explained why a long-awaited “Maybach Music 5″ will not contribute to its success.
According to reports, Ricky Rozay did not feel satisfied enough for an “MM5″ to appear on his new Mastermind LP.
Rick Ross stopped by RapFix Live to talk to Sway about his new album Mastermind. Many things were revealed on the show, including that Ross had 100 songs for the album because, as DJ Khaled noted, Ross is perpetually recording. “The production, the foundation of the beat, was produced by another set of producers. That’s my J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League flow. But I loved the concept, I loved the idea. I got the vocals done, but couldn’t get it where I wanted it to be.” That’s loyalty. (Speaking of which, Ross also disclosed that his mother is his accountant.) (Complex)
Back in November, Ricky Rozay hinted at “Maybach Music 5’s” existence.
“I thank BOBBY WOMACK. MAYBACH MUSIC 5 ft. MR. WOMACK..MASTERMIND,” Ross tweeted November 7. (Rick Ross’ Twitter)
Based on one-day estimates, Ross’ Mastermind should easily debut atop the sales chart next week.
YOUR NEW RELEASES: Rick Ross will take the top spot next week, while Pharrell Williams and the Frozen soundtrack will battle for runner-up. Here are this week’s key debuts. Rick Ross (Def Jam/IDJ) 145-160k Pharrell Williams (Columbia) 85-95k Lea Michele (Columbia) 50-55k Eli Young Band (Republic Nashville) 24-27k American Authors (Mercury/IDJ) 21-24k David Nail (MCA Nashville) 19-22k Ashanti (eOne) 18-21k (HITS Daily Double)
Ross raised eyebrows this week by moving his LP’s release date up a day to compete against music producer Pharrell’s G I R L album.
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)
