Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross recently opened up about his admiration toward veteran producer Dr. Dre and said he would love an opportunity to roll alongside the Doc.
Ross credits 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)
Last summer, 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.

In 2009, Ross called out 50 Cent for ruining Dr. Dre 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)
In April 2009, Ross freestyled off the Doc’s “Crack A Bottle” and revealed his admiration toward Dre.
“Phony Yayo has officially checked into rehab,” Ross said in the song’s intro. “Lloyd Banks is dating Perez Hilton. He came outta the closet. Best time of my life/Gucci bourgeois pop a bottle/You know my motto, shake that b*tch from top to bottom/Hit the blunt and take a swallow/April 21 I take over the universe/I get more p*ssy than Curly Curtis just takin’ off my shirt/How ya love that, I know the h*es do/GG GG GGG-who/Them n*ggas h*es too/Them n*ggas finished before I can even end a sentence/Shout-out to Aftermath, I know it’s strictly business, Dre, send one of them beats to the South/Shout-out to Eminem, we workin’ in the future.” (“Crack A Bottle” Remix)
