Rick Ross Says He’s One Of Few Rappers Able To Hear A Beat & Rap On The Spot

As the latest guest on Drink Champs, Rick Ross had a lot to discuss, promote, and speak on. For example, a part of his conversation with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN revolved around his upcoming car show. Specifically, the Biggest Boss gave some remarks on a similar event hosted by DJ Envy, and playfully brought some competition into the fray. "Envy was never on my level to battle,” he expressed. “I wouldn’t do that to Envy. I like Envy and I f**k with Envy, but in the car game he not ready for that, but I support that s**t."

However, Rick Ross also made an interesting proclamation while shouting out Drake, Lil Wayne, and Jay-Z. Furthermore, he said that he and that group are among the "two percentile" of artists that can hear a beat, write and record something for it on the spot, and stand by their work. "We in the two percentile when it comes to writers and creators," Rozay began. "It's called a two percentile.

Rick Ross Speaks On "The Two Percentile" In Rap

"The two percentile is when you walk into the room, you hear a production you actually love, you can actually create it, think of it, write it, and execute it right then," Rick Ross continued. "I can't say I've done that with many artists. It's not even five artists. Drake is in the two percentile. You know, the majority of the game- and Im'a be honest, I understand when you working with Rozay, you don't want that type of pressure on you. You come to the studio with me, there's very few people that's comfortable enough to listen to a beat, take my direction from it, and create something in that moment, record it right then, and stand on it. Wayne could do it, [and] Jay-Z."

Of course, such a comment is bound to cause some debate among hip-hop fans. Whether you think any or all of those four artists don't deserve that tile or have another candidate, one thing is for sure: the 47-year-old is right in remarking it as a rare skill. Regardless, we're sure that these MCs will continue to craft that talent and embody it with their next efforts.
