Rick Ross took time out recently and spoke about his excitement over working with two of the rap game’s giants.
Rozay revealed that it was excitement rather than nervousness that he felt when faced with the prospect of working with Jay-Z and Dr. Dre on the track, 3 Kings.
The Teflon Don will release his album, God Forgives, I Don’t, on July 31, and released the cut featuring both Dre and Jigga in preparation for the drop. Rick explained that he saw 3 Kings as a unification of the three coasts, and a high point in his rap career.
"Even more importantly, I feel that we were unifying the game with the West Coast, East Coast and down South at one time. It was just everybody repping they side and doing what they do, you know?" he told Wild 94.9's Nessa.
"Nah, I wasn’t nervous. I was really just, if anything, excited, because he the greatest producer in the history of Hip Hop, Rap music, however you want to label it. I’ve been a fan forever, straight up and down. Just to watch him turn those knobs and create a lot of music, it’s something I will definitely never forget."
Rick Ross went on to refute rumours that he had signed Trina to the Maybach Music Group imprint. He said that no deal is in place.
"Nah, I haven’t signed Trina yet or we haven’t done a deal yet. I was actually in the studio with Trina maybe two weeks ago, and she was playing me a lot of her new music. Her and Meek Mill did a collaboration, me and her did a collaboration. We were just in the studio kicking it, having fun."
