Rick Ross wanted so badly to have Jay-Z for his Teflon Don album, as he wants an all-star lineup to witness his greatness. Unlike the last time Rick Ross recorded a song with Jay-Z, Ross now sees himself as an equal to Jay as opposed to a newbie watching a veteran. Having earned the title of biggest rapper in the game, Rick Ross and Jay-Z recorded together as equals. But, the verse Jay-Z laid down for the album still had Ross baffled like it was 2008.
The song does not yet have a title, but Rick Ross definitely loves the beat, as he has had the beat for over nine months. Earlier this year, he recorded the first verse of the song and realized the song would be a lot better with Jay-Z on it. He said he spoke with Jay-Z and they talked for a little while before he got ready to record. Before Jay-Z went to lay down his verse, he listened to the first verse by Rick Ross.
Calmly, Jay-Z began recording and Rick Ross said his verse was ten times more potent than his after going one take and doing the verse in three minutes. Ross said Jay was rubbing his head as if he were pulling the rhymes from out of his mind. In the crowd with Rick Ross as Jay-Z recorded the song was Trey Songz. Like Ross, Trey Songz was amazed with what he witnessed the former CEO of Def Jam do.
