Rick Ross Talks Black Bar Mitzvah and Maybach Music Roster Upcoming Projects


(AllHipHop News) Maybach Music Group CEO Rick Ross recently sat down with AllHipHop.com to discuss his growing business empire and a very busy October, which so far, has seen “The Boss” release a new mixtape and acquire two Wingstop franchises, all while preparing to release Meek Mill’s debut album for the label.

Ross, whose own album God Forgives, I Don’t was recently certified gold, just released a controversial new mixtape titled “The Black Bar Mitzvah.”

“The Black Bar Mitzvah,” which has been criticized by some Jewish rappers, was recorded in two days, according to Rick Ross.

“If you listen to it, it’s freestyles I did it over two days [when] I was in Anguilla shooting ‘Diced Pineapples.’ All the songs we was listening to that I liked that I was a fan of, I pretty much just put freestyles on,” Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com.

According to Rick Ross, one of the goals of “The Black Bar Mitzvah” release was to heighten the awareness surrounding the October 30 release of Meek Mill’s highly anticipated debut Maybach Music Group debut, Dreams & Nightmares.

“It was really something to promote Meek Mill’s album as well, shout out to all the DJs,” Rick Ross explained. “October 30 Meek Mill album drops. That’s what it’s really all about at MMG right now .”

Rick Ross also offered up some info on the rising stars of MMG and their pending releases.

“It’s like when you sign to MMG it won’t be long before you on tour, making moves,” Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com. “Rockie Fresh of course he on his Electric Highway Tour, shout out to Stalley, he’s working on his debut album and Wale’s working on his third album.”

  • Triple lead!

    This is why YMCMB is the #1 Indie rap label right now. Wayne ain’t promoting himself while another one of his artists are weeks away from their debut album. He gives them all their time to shine and the results have been 3 platinum artist (including himself) and Tyga who has platinum singles and subpar album sales. Im not a huge fan but I recognize the success.

    he aint talk bout that chain and say free funplay

    • johnblacksad

      lol @ the typo… funplay bout to be his real name too!

  • Lyve Wire

    why do yall cats get so wrapped up in album sales? its not 1997 anymore, where everybody and their momma go platinum? AHH’s favorite rapper (50) dont even sell records any more. the climate has changed, drastically. its all about show money now; and MMG is getting alot of that. so basically, if you were never planning to buy a MMG album, or go to a MMG show, why click on a MMG story??? just to hate? so much negativity.

  • brotha_man

    all freestyles no wonder the mixtape was wack

  • WillVetterGoodin

    Lamed out, you want that real? Google me, Will Vetter Goodin- Who is YOUR Producer?

  • immackulate

    it aint never been about record sales —

    fat boy aint never went platinum but he stay on the road and keep an endorsement deal on the table at all times — they might not be vitamin water deals but fat boy is definitely feasting

    • Thoma$

      Ross has a quite a few platinum singles.

      • A

        and he has those singles because of the other artist on the song.. not because of him

      • so who was on hustling?

      • immackulate

        im speaking in regards to albums champ – most singles get BDS spins due to radio payola and are used for HYPE – PROMOTION – SUPPORT for an upcoming album – the albums are what the fans go out and buy – still it aint never been about album sales for ME – it’s always about the QUALITY of music and a well rounded album – not the sales –

      • Thoma$

        Still dude, a platinum plaque is a platinum plaque.

  • Zom

    Ross went in on all those joints.

    Mellow Music Group >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Maybach Music Group Mikey T Ain’t that the cat thatCuban link chumped a couple years ago for spreading bullshit rumors??

  • Doe Boy

    so he drop a mixtape thats promo for a nother rapper…i dont get it…do it work like that…why not jus drop a meek mixtape

    • Carlos

      @ Doe Boy, I hear you, thought the same thing, ross plugs meeks cd on mixtape but a meek mixtape would probably get more downloads.

  • Richard Savage

    It just dawned on me this dude has never had a platinum album but he stay gettin money. While i dont believe shit he says in his music he still does his thing lyrically for a southern rapper. And his crew stay taking L’s (the ones hood enough to fight anyway). He’s doin his thing

    under the circumstances much respect to his hustle

    • hoeyuno

      Yea sometimes you gotta admit he may not be as dumb as we think he is(like George bush)…

  • I say Meek Millie will push 189, 532 first week and by march he will be Gold!!!

  • keylon jackson
