MMG Covers XXL Magazine's October Issue
Rick Ross and his growing Maybach Music Group crew appear on XXL's October 2011 issue due on stands September 20th. The crew talks about taking over the rap game in 2012:
“When I make music, I go back to my late nights of me by myself, listening to Curtis Mayfield or R. Kelly’s 12 Play,” Ross says. “There’s certain depths that music can take you to. There’s certain feels that you need to have. When you get to the last song on the album, I want you to have that feeling of being whole. I want to give these muthafuckas classic joints. That means more to me than anything else.”
Recruiting some of hip-hop’s most promising, up-and-coming talent doesn’t hurt Ross’s chance at claiming rap’s top spot on the food chain either. Asked why he decided to reach out and associate himself with such a broad range of MCs including Meek, Wale, Pill and Stalley, Rozay said it was important to help give other artists a chance he felt wasn’t offered to him when he started out.
