Rick Ross discusses the thought process of recording and releasing his latest mixtape, and how signing to MMG can fast track a rapper's career.
Arguably, this summer belonged to MMG with a chart topping collabo album, solo LP from Rick Ross, Meek Millâs undeniable mixtape sensation Dream Chasers 2, and some notable signings.Â Never one to stop hustling, the Boss dropped a mixtape recently entitled The Black Bar Mitzvah which drew the ire of some, most notably, Shyne.Â
Rozay says the entire mixtape was recorded while on location shooting visuals for âDiced Pineapplesâ, and was actually put together rather quickly.Â In an interview with AHH he says, âIf you listen to it, itâs freestyles I did it over two days [when] I was in Anguilla shooting âDiced Pineapples.â All the songs we was listening to that I liked that I was a fan of, I pretty much just put freestyles on.â
Always thinking about promoting himself and MMG, Ross says the thought behind The Black Bar Mitzvah was to increase the visibility for Meek Millâs solo debut Dream & Nightmares. âIt was really something to promote Meek Millâs album as well, shout out to all the DJs,â Ricky Ross added that that was the main focus, âOctober 30 Meek Mill album drops. Thatâs what itâs really all about atÂ MMG right now.â
After signing some rising talent this summer, most notably Rockie Fresh, Ross talks about how being part of MMG can turn a rapperâs career around, almost overnight.Â The MMG Boss said, âitâs like when you sign to MMG it wonât be long before you on tour, making moves.Â Rockie Fresh of course he on hisÂ Electric Highway Tour, shout out to Stalley, heâs working on his debut album."
How do you feel The Black Bar Mitzvah holds up, does it sound like it was recorded in just a couple days?
