Rick Ross proved to be the biggest boss of them all after he began scooping up new talent for his [article id="1659745"] Maybach Music Group[/article] and then signed his label to Warner Bros. in March.
Not content with just having young guns like Wale, Meek Mill and Pill sitting on his roster, Ross is readying his MMG compilation Self Made. In an exclusive interview with MTV News, Ross broke down his motivation for adding each of his new spitters.
"Just me being a fan of Wale's lyrics, he's a lyricist, he's a fly dude, Ross told us Wednesday when we visited the set of the MMG video for "600 Benz." I feel like he's gonna make a really huge impact over the next few years."
The Bawse was equally excited about Meek Mill, who appeared on [article id="1658441"]XXL 's 2011 Freshmen cover[/article].
"Meek Mill, I feel he's speaking for the streets," Ross said. "He's fillin' the void comin' from Philly. I think this was something that was well overdue and most definitely needed. The reaction of his music is speakin' for itself."
Atlanta MC Pill is Maybach's most recent signing and, according to Ross, his intellect is his strong suit. "Pill, he's been representin' in the A-Town forever, just being a deep thinker and dope a street lyricist at the same time," Rozay said. "So that was somethin' that I was just vibin' and attracted to."
Self Made will be in stores and online May 24.
