Overnight, Rick Ross has become the authority in hip hop and his opinion holds a lot of weight. Having gone from being the latest product from Slip-N-Slide to "the boss," everybody wants to hear from Ross. Having gone full circle, Rick Ross has given his official co-sign to the movement of Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa.
Because of his relationship with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross has always had respect for Nicki Minaj. Like the rest of the hip hop world, Ross sat back and watched her dominate the summer of 2010. He was happy for her, but still not convinced about her skills. But, after hearing her verse on "Monster," Rick Ross is a big Nicki fan.
With Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross never had many doubts. Upon hearing him, Ross knew he would be big. As the head of his own record label, Rick Ross is trying to meet with Wiz. If all goes well, he will be adding Wiz Khalifa to his Maybach Music Group roster, too. After spending time with Diddy, Rick Ross has learned how to operate a business of his own. Then, watching Lil Wayne do his thing, he wants his own label to be next.
Signed to Maybach already is The Triple C's, Young Dice, Torch, and Rick Ross. Ross feels as if all of these rappers can bring something different to the hip hop game that everyone will love in the end.
