Maybach Music Group head Rick Ross has treated fans to an inside gem by revealing what track hip-hop icon Dr. Dre laced him with for his chart-topping Mastermind album.
According to Ricky Rozay, his Sizzla and Mavado-assisted “Mafia Music III” initially had Detox written all over it.
“Mafia Music III track was originally for Detox which @drdre gave me for #Mastermind in a session. #Gem,” Ricky Rozay wrote March 20, revealing it was originally for Dr. Dre’s solo album. (Rick Ross’ Twitter)
This week, the “Bawse” delivered fans his new “Devil Is A Lie” music video.
Months after releasing the song, Rick Ross finally drops a video for his Mastermind single “Devil Is a Lie.” While Jay Z does not appear in the explosive clip, the MMG mogul holds his own, spitting the truth in front of a bonfire before driving off in a chauffeured vehicle. He even captions his lyrics for his international fans. (Rap-Up)
Late last year, Ricky Rozay dished on teaming up with “Devil Is A Lie” collaborator Jay Z.
“When me and Jay Z are in the studio, it’s not just the beat on loop. We talkin’ some sh*t. We talkin’ some sh*t n*gga. After you make a record as big as ‘YouKnowItGotIt,’ it has to be on that level up and I feel that’s what this record is. It’s a dope record. ‘Devil Is A Lie.’ K.E. On The Track. You know, it’s another one of them records, you know what I’m saying? 6-0, 7-0 on the joints. It’s for the streets. It’s the flows, it’s the bounce, it’s how current and relevant the music is. I think that’s what’s important when you’re sculpting an entire body of work. Everybody around the world embracing this movement, we love you. MMG for life. Mastermind on the way.” (“Mastermind Sessions, Vol. 1″)
Ricky Rozay congratulated himself and thanked fans for making his latest LP the nation’s number one album last week.
“Still hustlin. #1 toast to my fans….. @belairerose http://mastermindgr.am/5IA,” Rozay tweeted March 11.
